How to Use Zoom for Our Live Online Yoga Classes

Published March 22nd, 2020 By Jo Stewart

Missing class and a sense of community? We are now sharing Gentle Yoga and Nurturing Yoga and Pilates classes live online via zoom. We're here to help you get set up, so you can keep your practice going at home.

How to use zoom for our Live Online Yoga classes and Online Private sessions.

Using zoom is super easy - all you need is a laptop, tablet or phone, an internet connection and a space to practice.

Step One

Book in for one of our Live online Yoga classes via our schedule

Or email Jo to arrange a private session.

Step Two

Download Zoom

Step Three

Follow the meeting link in your confirmation email.

We recommend getting yourself set up 10 minutes or so before the class is scheduled to start in case you have any issues. Feel free to message us through the Garden of Yoga facebook page if you need help.

Step Four

Enjoy the class and feel free to hang out for a chat after!

We’ll allowing some extra time after class for conversation - sangha (community) is such an important part of yoga!!

How our live online classes work

In our live online yoga and pilates classes I can see everyone in the class.

I’ll guide the class just the way I would in person, and if you ask me questions I’ll be able to zoom in on you to help with clarification and different options. You can also change your display by tapping ‘change view’ control. If you mainly want to see me choose the Speaker option, if you want to see the whole group choose the ‘gallery’ option (great for practicing with friends).

If you are feeling intimidated by the technology don’t worry - we’re here to help you figure it out and everyone we’ve worked with have found it easier than they expected and really enjoyed our live online yoga classes.

Here’s what our students have to say:

In these uncertain times we are all trying our best to protect our elderly and vulnerable and this included our first video conference pilates class! I was a bit worried as Jo normally keeps a beady eye on me as I have some medical issues we are working through but I shouldn't have been. She was able to see me clearly and give excellent instruction even though I was using the Zoom app on my phone. It was easy to set up and I still felt a great benefit from the class. I had to be a bit creative with some of the equipment but it turns out jars of passata make great hand weights! Thanks Jo for thinking outside the box and making sure I can still 'attend' my class without placing anyone at risk.
