7 Steps to a Stress-Free Online Yoga Class

Updated: Jul 20




1. Give yourself 15 minutes before start time


Set an alarm for 15 minutes before class starts. Be realistic with your time. If you need to commute home from the office set your reminder to include time to get home. This way you have time to follow the next 6 steps stress-free.

2. Sign up and download the Zoom App

There are benefits to using a computer, tablet, or phone. The Zoom App is compatible with all three, choose the one that makes sense for your space.

3. Clean your space

Put your laundry away, give the floor a quick sweep, and put away any dirty dishes. This is an act of self-care in itself, but it also serves to remove distractions. You don’t want to be smelling left-over food or worrying if other participants can see your pile of laundry while you’re trying to relax.

4. Gather your props

If you have yoga props at home that’s great! If not, you can find a video blog here where I demonstrate using common household items.

5. Wear comfortable clothing you can move in

It also helps to have an extra layer around (sweater, blanket, socks) in case your body temperature drops.

6. Have some water or tea on hand

You don’t want to get up and disturb your practice if you don’t need to.

7. Put your phone on “Do Not Disturb” mode

This is 1 hour you get to take for yourself, no disruptions. You deserve it!

**Bonus: Light candles, burn incense, put on your diffuser, and/or put on a gentle playlist


If you need inspiration for music, I’ve got a yoga playlist for you here.
