Virtual studio: Frequently Asked Qs.

Do I need to register for classes?

For real-time Livestream Classes, yes, you’ll need to register in order to 1) receive your Zoom link to participate, 2) receive the recording to use for 24 hours. Book using our App or Online Schedule.

For On-Demand library, no registry needed. Unlimited on demand selections are a perk of being a member. @TwistYoga.TV is a private Instagram channel exclusive to our members.

Can I view classes on my computer or TV?

Yes! Livestreams via Zoom can be watched on a tablet, a computer or synched to SmartTVs.

On-Demand classes are streamed through the Instagram App.  If you have an Apple TV or some other smart screen device, you may download the app onto your device and stream from there.  To stream from your computer, you can download the chrome plug in.

Connecting your phone to a Bluetooth speaker for better at home sound quality. 

Are you able to show me how to download to my TV? 

No.  

Will I be seen/heard at home as I am practicing?

For livestreams, we see/hear you at the beginning of class, but the teacher mutes class at the start. We love it if you leave your camera on so we may see you but it’s up to you.

May I ask questions during LiveStream classes?

Their primary priority is offering meaningful class content. You can comment in the chat box, however our teachers may not able to respond.  We love the feedback, though…. So please DO send us hearts and smiles.  

Issues with sound, recording quality or content?

Sometimes we can’t control the internet. Or technoligy is being difficult. Pets/kids/neighbors/equipment limitations/connectivity affect experiences.  We ask that you have patience with us.  

How should I set up my home practice space?

Any practice space will work! 

  • Even if it’s in a hallway, create some sacred ritual around taking up space.  
  • Follow @twistyoga and take a look at our highlights for some examples of #TwistUpYourHome  
  • Roll out your mat.  Or just practice on the floor, if you don’t have a mat.  
  • Any practice feels better than no practice. 
  • Understand these are unprecedented times, so have patience with yourself and kids if home practice doesn’t feel exactly like 

What if I don’t have props?

If you have props, great!  If you don’t, still great!  You an either purchase a kit from us, or get creative: use a stack of books for a block, sofa cushions instead of a bolster, a belt or necktie instead of a strap.

A message from our founder, Jen.

“Twist Yoga studios are communities and that’s what makes us different from a BBY (Big Box Yoga).  

We really are a community; makes Twist Yoga different really is our beloveds. We are were 35 employees’ (now 10 employees) and hundreds of customers’ second home and extended family.

We are a community that has seen each other through triumph, losses, wins, death, divorce and more…. We are lucky.  We take care of each other. If anyone can survive this, Twist Yoga can. 

This probably won’t happen at Big Box or ClassPass studios. I love that about us.

So far, enough of our community is contiuing to practice with us so we may stay open. What the future holds, we don’t know, but for now: Those who can afford to pay are still paying.  This who can are offering more support.

We are a people-community business; we will survive if we help each other. “
