- play play: If you’re new to Online Yoga, Set up your device and click on the link plenty of time before class. You will see yourself only (as the teacher won’t have logged in yet) so you so make any adjustments to lighting and position. You will also see how to mute and un-mute yourself. The mute button can be found to the bottom left of the screen. You can also turn on and off your video. Play around with the settings, then end the meeting with yourself. You will use the same link to join the class later. First time is the hardest!
