Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What kind of computer do I need in order to use YOGO.tv?

YOGO.tv works on most Internet-connected computers, tablets and smartphones. The site is compatible with Macs, Windows PCs, iPhones/iPads/iPods, Blackberry devices, Android-powered phones, etc. with HTML5-compatible web-browsers (this is standard with most current web browsers so chances are, you will be able to do the videos on the site). If your TV is connected to the Internet, you can probably access the site and do the videos too.

Q: When I try to watch a video, all I see is a still image…why won’t the video start?

If you are using a slower Internet connection or their is congestion on the network, it can take up to 30 seconds for the video to start playing. If the video still is not starting, please check to make sure that you have the latest version of Adobe Flash Player — you can get it for free at http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Q: How do I watch the videos in High Definition (HD)?

Our videos play by default in standard definition so that they work best for the greatest number of viewers, but if you have a high speed Internet connection and want to enjoy HD quality video, click the HD icon near the bottom right-hand corner of the video player window to turn HD video quality on or off. Please remember that HD-quality video requires more bandwidth so if you are experiencing video quality issues, especially video stalling issues, please turn HD off to see if that improves the overall video performance.

Q: What level am I?

Beginner: You’re new to yoga. Either this is your first time doing yoga, or you’re still within your first year learning the basics. We are all beginner students but eventually you’ll have a solid understanding of the yoga language and sequencing. You will also have a well-balanced awareness of your body and how it moves on the yoga mat. The perfect place to begin.

Intermediate/Level 2: You’ve been practicing yoga for a while. You have a solid understanding of the basic principles of yoga and how to align your body. You are ready to deepen the practice, move a little faster and explore the body from all angles. You will go upside down, balance on hands and explore deep variations of yoga postures.

Advanced: You not only have a solid understanding of the practice but you practice regularly and long to go deeper. In these classes get ready to balance on your hands, go upside down and find a new depth both in your body and mind. Some pranayama, meditation exercises, plus inversions, arm balances and challenging postures in these classes.
