LIVE STREAM Audio Best Practices:
  • Connect your bluetooth audio device to the device that you have logged into your Zoom room with (phone, laptop, desktop, iPad).
    You will be able to hear the teacher on your bluetooth audio device.
  • Want to jam out to the playlist and hear your teacher? You will need 2 devices.
  • Next open Spotify on the same device.
  • At the bottom left, click on the audio icon that looks like a speaker and computer display.
  • Tap on that icon, then select Airplay or Bluetooth (most likely at the bottom of your list).
  • Select your airpods (whatever you named your airpods should show up).
  • Press play on Spotify.
  • Voila ✨ You should hear the teacher’s voice and playlist simultaneously to guide your practice.
  • If you do not have Spotify, Soundiiz is a great platform to transfer instructor’s playlists between platforms for free.
  • Taking podFIT Express?
  • If you have hand weights, great!
  • If you don’t get creative – maybe a gallon of water or 2 full Yoga Pod water bottles.
