Web-Based Classes

Practice from the comfort of your home

Web-based Class Checklist

Web-based classes are online classes over the internet and conducted through the Zoom application.

1. How can I prepare for my classes?

  • It is best to select a quiet, uncluttered space about 6 feet by 6 feet so you have space to move around comfortably.
  • Set your computer or device at a level that allows you to see your entire self on your screen (from head to toes – standing, seated and supine).
  • Have on hand your yoga props: 1 blanket, 1 or 2 yoga blocks or pillows, a yoga strap (can be a scarf, tie or belt)
  • Its handy to have a note pad and pen to take notes and water

2. How do I join my web class I was invited to?

You will receive an invitation to join the web conference with a url containing the active meeting ID. To join the meeting:

  • Click on the link in email invitation.
  • Click Join Meeting button (The first time that you use web conferencing, the browser may request to download a client app that will then launch the conference – this may appear differently depending on your device – PC, MAC, iphone, Android etc).
  • The Zoom interface will launch and request that you enter your name.
  • Click on Join button.

3. What is Zoom?:

Zoom is a free application that provides video and web conferencing services over the internet. The web browser client will download automatically when you join your first Zoom meeting.

4. Do participants need a Zoom account to join a video web conference meeting?

No. The meeting host can issue invites through InfoCentral or Zoom desktop and mobile applications where invitees will receive an email invitation. Joining the web videoconference is as easy as clicking the link in the email invitation.

5. What kind of network connection should I use with Zoom video webconferencing?

It is best to use a broadband connection to participate in a Zoom meeting. In general, wired network connections do work better than wireless connections. Likewise, Wi-Fi is generally preferable to a cellular/data connection when using a mobile device. Given that video is exchanged, connection speeds have a direct impact on reception quality. For low bandwidth connections, try disabling video and join the meeting in VoIP (voice) mode only.
