For the modern-day yoga teacher, teaching classes online is a must. While studios remain closed, online streaming is the only way to continue teaching, and, as many students prefer the ease of practising from their living room, the switch to Zoom will likely be permanent.
To ensure your classes flow as smoothly as your vinyasa practice, it is worth investing in a few pieces of tech to kit out your virtual studio. Rather than waste hours scrolling the internet for the best mic, check out our list of the most popular, yoga-friendly tech below!
Rode WiGo: The Rode WiGo is extremely popular among yoga teachers, and for good reason. The compact wireless microphone sends out clear, broadcast-grade audio, with a battery life that lasts up to 7 hours. It is also light enough to clip onto your leggings, coming in at only 31g, making it easy to demonstrate during class.
Apple Airpods: The airpods are widely recognised for their excellent sound quality, quick connectivity, comfort and style. Easy to use and simple to charge (15 minutes is all you need), these wireless earbuds are an ideal choice for teaching yoga online.
Logitech C922: The Logitech C922 promises super-speed HD streaming for all your online offerings. The webcam features a glass lens with autofocus and a 78º diagonal field of view, capturing enough space for you to demonstrate on screen. What’s more, the HD auto light correction allows you to teach anywhere, anytime.
Canyon CWC6N: This webcam provides clear video with a wide angle view that offers outstanding video quality for viewers. The Canyon includes a microphone with automatic noise reduction, perfect for holding online classes or workshops from home.
SAD Lights: SAD lamps, typically used as a form of light therapy, are doubling up as soft lighting for online yoga classes. SAD lamps give off a warm glow, without being too bright or taking up a lot of space. All this, and you reap the benefits of extra light exposure!
Neewer 18-inch dimmable ring light: A favourite among yoga teachers, the Neewer Ring Light is ideal for holding online classes. The adjustable dimming system allows you to control the brightness level, whereas the flexible gooseneck tube can reach different angles to create a professional scene.
