  • You need to be seen and heard: this means you’ll need access to computer/laptop or tablet with a (built in) mic and camera. 
  • You will need a bigger than iPhone screen to see me too while teaching.
  • You need a chair without arms and an old yoga mat for the chair to go on top to stop it from slipping.
  • All other props like blankets, strap, block are optional.
  • You need a free account with zoom. You do NOT need a pro account to join in the meeting with zoom, only host does.
  • You need room to practice: Enough for your tablet / computer / laptop to free-stand, your arms to stretch out to the side, enough room to forward bend and walk around your chair. Ideally you also need access to a wall.
  • Upon payment you will be redirected to register for the training.
  • FINALLY You’ll need to sign a waiver – Dochub form will be sent to you.
