Recommendations for Online Yoga Teachers

By Ashley HagenΒ 

 

Updated 4/3/2021. See all of these recommendations in pictures and links atΒ kit.co/ashesyoga/online-yoga-teacher-kit

What you see below are all of my recommendations for getting started with online video, whether you are teaching yoga classes or sharing tips videos. Start with what you have an upgrade once what you have isn’t working for you anymore. You can gain a lot of confidence on video by just using your phone. My first recommendation is to invest in better audio, specifically if you are teaching yoga classes. You will want something that is wireless. After that, upgrade when needed.

Scroll even further down and you can see MY exact set-up and product links that have been working for all of my yoga videos in 2020.
