Setting Up Your Home Practice
1. Choose a smaller room, with a full length mirror if possible. A space heater and humidifier will help, but are not necessary. Wear pants/tights and long sleeves–nothing too loose or baggy. You want to keep your body warm, while still being able to move your body freely.
3. Position your device as low as possible (floor is best) and angled at a 45 degree angle to your body. Camera should show your full body (including your mat) when you are standing on your mat. We should also be able to see you when you are lying down on the mat. We highly recommend that you turn your video on during your class. This allows our teachers to interact with you and offer corrections during class.
4. Before starting class, we will announce a “Demo” student–usually a BYI teacher or staff member who is in class. If you wish to see proper form and technique, you can choose to “pin video” of the Demo. Pinning video means you will only see that person’s video on your device. On a smart phone or tablet, simply double tap on the Demo. On a desktop/laptop, click on upper right corner of Demo’s video window and you will see the option to “pin video”.
5. If you need to step away during class, do not leave the Zoom meeting room, just mute your audio and stop your video as needed. If you leave the meeting room, we will not be able to re-admit you.
6. Set aside time to test your Zoom set up before your class. Once you have entered the Zoom class, we are unable to offer assistance. Here’s asupport article on how to test video and audio.
