Frequently Asked Questions about our Live stream classes
What equipment do I need?
Ideally you need a yoga mat, but if you don’t have one you can make do with a towel and any non-slip surface.
Have a bolster, or some cushions, pillows or folded towels handy to sit on and to make yourself comfortable when you lie in relaxation.
We sometimes use yoga blocks but you can substitute books or cushions for this.
A chair, stool or sofa and some wall space is also handy.
Don’t worry too much about having the perfect equipment – we have seen some really creative improvisations and the teacher will guide you and give you ideas 🙂
What technology do I need and how do the virtual classes work?
We use Zoom to live stream our classes. Once you purchase a membership, you’ll be guided to book into your first class with us. We’ll email you a link to the Zoom meeting when you book into the class, and we’ll also text you a link (1 hour prior and 5 minutes prior) so you have it handy. We have people who join us via their phone, laptop and ipad. Some people like to cast the class to their TV.
When you join, you have the option of turning your camera on or off. We suggest leaving it on so the teacher can see you and give you verbal adjustments and encouragement. If you’re more comfortable with it off though, that’s ok too.
You can also turn your microphone on to talk to the teacher or other clients. We like to have a quick check in with you before the class starts to make sure we are keeping you safe.
We send you a suggested Spotify playlist before the class, but you can also listen to any music you like (or just enjoy the silence – you’re in control!)
I only have a small apartment, will it be big enough?
As long as you have space to roll out a mat and there’s nothing nearby that you can hurt yourself on then you’ll be fine! We’ve even had clients go outside to take the class with us to enjoy their relaxation time without their kids pestering them!
Is it safe to do classes every day?
Absolutely! If you have time it is very beneficial to do a daily yoga practice.
When can I start pregnancy yoga?
Our classes are suitable from the first trimester, however it is personal preference whether you decide to wait until after your 12 week scan.
I’m in my third trimester, is it too late to start?
It’s never too late! Towards the end of your pregnancy you’ll be focused on getting ready for labour, birth and your journey into motherhood. Our classes will help you to relax, connect with your baby and become confident with essential breathing techniques that you’ll need during your labour.
