How the On-Demand package works (FAQs)

How does it work?

Each month I will update the videos on this page.

The videos are all password protected. You will receive an email with the current password as soon as you purchase your membership so that you can get started right away.

You will then receive an email with a new password on the 11th of each month, for as long as your membership remains active.

It is the SAME password for every video and it is case sensitive.

How can I keep in touch with you?

If you have any questions arising from your practice or wish to talk to me about it, please email me on lucy@lucyoga.co.uk. This includes feedback on the yoga, whether it is meeting your needs and special requests for specific postures, sequences and themes.

I’ve also set up a dedicated Facebook Group for On-Demand and Weekly Yoga Club members. This is an optional extra, so no worries if you don’t want to use it, but it’s a very friendly space if you do!

Special features of the On-Demand Yoga

Introducing yoga classes that you can tailor for your needs

One of the really exciting features of the On-Demand Yoga is that the full-length classes can be tailored to your own needs using a feature called Chapters.

The Chapters mean that you can tailor the class to suit YOUR needs on any given day. You could do the whole class as it was originally taught, or you can break it up.

For example, if you are feeling tired or have fatigue you could just do the chapters that are gentle and relaxing. Or if you are looking for a more active practice you could do the more dynamic chapters only.

Under each video that features Chapters, I’ll suggest ways to tailor your practice but you can make your own choices! Take control of your yoga practice and your wellbeing.

How do I find the Chapters?

Chapters are a feature in Vimeo (the service I use to share my videos here). To see them you need to hover over or click on the video (after you have entered the password) until you can see the playback toolbar along the bottom.

On the right-hand side, there is an icon that looks like a bullet-point list. Click that and you will be able to see the chapters. Simply click on the chapter to play the video from that point on.

How Should I Prepare for Yoga?

Getting ready

One of the lovely things about online yoga is that you can practice in the comfort of your own home. It’s especially nice if you can take a little time to create a special space for your yoga practice.

Here are some tips for creating a yoga space for online yoga.

  • Position your screen somewhere you can see it easily from your yoga mat
  • Use books or other things from around the house to prop any smaller devices up so they don’t slip down
  • Have a clear area around you where you are practising so you aren’t going to crash into things, or have doors opened on you, etc.
  • Ask others in your house (if there are any) that you’d like a bit of time for yourself and to not disturb you (you can ask, at least!)

Other things you can do:

  • Use the biggest screen you can. Can you connect your laptop to the TV? Or can you use your Smart TV to watch what is on your phone?
  • Connect your device to a good speaker. I use music in all my classes so hook up a good speaker for the best sound experience

Preparing your yoga equipment

There are a few things you can get ready to make your yoga experience nice and calm.

Like getting all your equipment together before you start. For full-length classes I recommend:

  • a yoga mat
  • blanket(s)
  • a couple of cushions
    and if you have them…
  • yoga blocks
  • bolster
  • yoga strap (or dressing gown sash, or a tie)
  • an eye pillow (or soft scarf works too)

For a shorter class you might simply need to take your shoes off and just get moving (or lying down!)

More ways to prepare…

  • Consider lighting a candle if you have one
  • Get a mug of water (preferably hot/warm as this is best for you during yoga practice)
  • Wear layers so you can adapt to the different levels of activity
  • Lower lighting is better in the evening but remember, this is YOUR practice so do what suits you.
  • You could even practice in a garden or do your relaxation in bed!
