Getting the most out of your online yoga class
All of our live online yoga sessions are streamed through zoom. Our sessions are friendly and relaxed – you can decide whether you want to have your camera on or off and if you’d like to chat or not – either is absolutely fine with us! We will mute everyone during the session itself as often there is quite a lot of background noise in people’s homes – we also want you to be able to play music if you’d like to!
Booking for each session closes half an hour before the start time and your zoom link will be in your booking confirmation email. If you’ve booked in advance you’ll also get a reminder email sent to you within the 24 hours before your session.

What to wear
One of the great things about online yoga is you can wear whatever you like – even your pyjamas! It’s great to practice yoga barefooted and we’d recommend something that allows you to have a wide range of movement such as leggings or shorts. The most important thing is to feel comfortable and to wear something that allows you to move and bend easily.
You don’t need any equipment at all. A yoga mat would be great but don’t worry if you don’t have one. If you don’t have a mat we’d recommend that you practise on a carpeted floor rather than a hard floor – it’s less slippery and slightly more cushioned.
If you decide that you’d like to use props (we’ll explain when you can use these during the session) you can substitute equipment with regular household items. For example, you can use books for yoga blocks, a dressing gown belt for a yoga strap and a pillow or rolled up towels for a bolster.
If you’re attending a yin yoga class (Calm & Restore) we’d recommend you bring a pillow with you. You might also want to bring a blanket for the final relaxation.
Another great thing about online yoga is you can play your own music. If you’re joining a live class we will mute everyone on the call during the session itself so you can play whatever music you like.
My three favourite playlists on Apple Music at the moment are:
Pure Yoga – for Flow & Revive and Mindful & Strong
Pure Spa – for Calm & Restore and final relaxation in any session
Pure Meditation – for Calm & Restore and final relaxation in any session
Timings and questions
If you’re joining a live class, the yoga session will start at the advertised time. The zoom room will be open 5-10 minutes before the start time of your session and we’ll stay online at the end in case you have any questions. Remember you can also call or email us to ask any questions that you might have or to seek advice around any specific postures or aspects of the class.
Always make sure you consult a qualified healthcare professional before commencing a new exercise regime and to seek specialist advice regarding any medical conditions or injuries you may have. Listen to your body during your yoga practice and ensure you only participate in postures that it is safe for you to do. Please make sure we’re aware of any conditions that may impact on your ability to do yoga safely before any live session. We’ll email a health questionnaire to you when you book your first session and would really appreciate it if you could complete and return this to firstname.lastname@example.org before you join a live session. All information you provide is stored securely and completely confidential.
