What do I need to get started?
Just you! But, we do use these props throughout the videos and they are essential for accessibility:
- 1-2 blocks
- yoga mat
Always feel free to DIY your props if you do not have access. Books can make for solid blocks, a scarf or tie can work as a strap, pillows and blankets work if you don’t have a bolster.
I highly recommend you practice on a yoga mat for stability and to create a practice space for yourself. If possible, try to avoid practicing on carpet as it can compromise the wrists. If a mat isn’t available – aim for solid/smooth floors and a blanket for padding when needed.
The video will sometimes stop or pause. How can I make it play properly?
Here is a quick little video showing you exactly where to find the small gear icon so you can adjust the playback to suit your internet connection. (this video has no sound)
How do I cancel my subscription?
You can cancel at anytime in your Account Settings. If you have any trouble, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is there a suggested or average monthly price?
Please pay what feels right to you. A suggested price of $25 a month serves as an average. Keep in mind Dana is running this platform in good faith. If you are able to pay more, please consider it as a way to support the community and content and allow others to join.
What currency do I enter when naming my price?
All prices are in USD.
Do the videos have captions/subtitles?
Yes. All video content, asana + philosophy, is captioned.
For now, the captions are available in English and cannot be turned off.
Can I update the amount I pay monthly?
Due to tech/software resources (for now), you will not be able to update the amount you opt to pay. However, you can cancel your membership at anytime and sign up again if you feel you need to change your payment.
Can I turn the video captions on/off?
For now, the captions are embedded to the videos and they cannot be turned off. This may change in the future and if so, we will let you know!
How to update payment method or change payment information
What yoga mat are you using?
I use a Liforme mat. They’re a little longer and wider than traditional mats, and the grip is truly unbeatable. For my body and practice, both of those factors are game changers.
If you are going to buy one, feel free to use NOLATREES for a discount.
What kind of yoga classes are available?
Some examples of classes within the membership site:
Seated Chair Yoga
Beginner Yoga Flow
Beginner Posture Tutorial
Introduction to Restorative Yoga
Sirsasana / Headstand Prep
… and more 🙂
Each month a minimum of two new videos are added. The library grows as the community does.
How often do you add new classes?
Twice a month, with a minimum of two new videos a month. Already existing videos stay in the library, so the library only grows with time.
The upload schedule is:
1st and 3rd Monday of every month.
As the community builds and resources grow, I hope to increase this to weekly uploads.
Can I buy a membership as a gift?
Yes! This option is available at membership checkout. You will need the recipient’s email address.
I’m pregnant, is it safe for me to do these classes?
Pregnant folk will most likely find these classes accessible and safe. Please avoid or be very mindful of inversions, arm balances, any postures where you might risk falling if you are new to yoga.
That being said, please consult your doctor, midwife, doula, support system, etc. or opt in to your own discretion. Also keep in mind that these classes are taught by someone in a larger body, with a belly that gets in the way (that’s me – Dana)! From an accessibility standpoint, these classes make space for bellies no matter why they are big/round/squishy.
Can I download any of the content/videos?
As of now none of the content can be downloaded. You will need internet access to login to your account (no offline access). From there you can view any content within the site.
Can I cancel my subscription anytime?
Yes. Your subscription is month-to-month and you can cancel at any point in your account settings.
