Tips for an Online Zoom Yoga Class


Tips for an Online Zoom Yoga Class

Amid the outbreak of COVID-19 Yoga can still be part of your daily routine, a platform which makes it possible is Zoom.

Online Zoom Yoga Class

If you are like me, you probably hadn’t heard of Zoom before almost everyone started to turn to it  to stay digitally connected with their friends, family and for professional use.  I learned that Zoom is a reliable video communications app which enables you to practice yoga live from the comfort of your own home.

How to set up Zoom:

  1. You can download the Zoom app on your mobile device or install it on your laptop/ or computer
  2. Create an account
  3. Once you book on to a class, you’ll get a simple link via email
  4. Be sure to check your junk or spam folders if you do not see the email
  5. All you have to do is click on the link
  6. You’ll be taken directly into the meeting/ online class

How to prepare for an online class using Zoom:

  1. Choose a space where you would feel comfortable ensuring you have enough space to move
  2. Make sure you can see the screen easily
  3. Make sure to keep your microphone on mute to cancel out any background noises
  4. Streaming requires a reliable wifi connection. If your connection weakens, you can turn off your video camera. Only your name will be displayed.
  5. It’s easy to click on your teacher’s photo display and select ‘Pin Video’ – so the video focuses on the teacher, and it won’t alternate between other participants

Give yourself 10 to 15 minutes beforehand if you are new to Zoom. All of our classes at Bahia Yoga are live interactive online sessions, where the teachers talk with you and check-in and offer guidance as best they can, just as they would in the studio. The classes can be tailored to the students who join in each session.

In my experience, the live online yoga classes were just what I needed. It helped me manage my emotions and personally reinforced the importance of letting go of things that we cannot control in our daily lives. I too, hope it serves you. I hope you found these tips useful! Stay safe and well – Asem
