First of all, decide which device that you would like to use to take classes with iyoga.online.  You can use a smartphone, tablet or computer, each have their benefits.  In general, the larger the screen, the better you’ll be able to see the teacher.  

If you are taking a class at home and have the ability to mirror your screen on your smart TV, that will give you the best view.

Look for a suitable space to set out your mat for the class.  It should be as clear and open as possible with enough light for the teacher to be able to see you.  

Make sure that you can put your device with camera far enough from the mat so that all your mat is visible on the screen. Optimally, you will show all your mat and your body up to the head, when you stand up straight in the middle of the mat.

We know that there’s not always a lot of room available, but it’s important to not be near anything that could interfere or be disturbed such as display cases, bookshelves and entertainment centers if you were to make any sudden or unexpected movements.  The teachers at iyoga.online know that the spaces available to students may not be as ideal as you might find in a studio and are ready to accommodate whatever is at hand.

Once you’ve chosen your device and decided how you’d like to view the classes, next you’ll need to download the Zoom app.  Zoom is the video application iyoga.online uses to facilitate the classes.  

You can find the Zoom app on the Google Play Store or in the Apple’s App Store. 

 It can also be downloaded directly from the Zoom website (www.zoom.com). You do not need to sign up for a Zoom account, simply make sure the app is available on your device.
