Tips and hints for a great home practice ONLINE with the Breathing Space.

Create a cosy space. Have your mat and props ready and make your yoga space as clear and clutter free as you can. Have a playlist lined up if you want to listen to some music whilst you practice.

Make sure your teacher can see you standing up and lying on your mat. We recommend your camera is eye level or higher and angled down.

Make sure your Zoom name/handle is something your teacher will recognise when they see you in the Zoom waiting room.

Make sure your device is charged or plugged in.

Log in early to greet your teacher as normal.

Report injuries/general condition.

Turn off phones / TV / radio / children!

Use a laptop / tablet with a large screen,  or “mirror” your phone on your TV.

Don’t forget to dress for the occasion – your teacher can see you!
