+ What is a bespoke yoga video?
Anything bespoke has been individually crafted with care. The focus is on meeting specific needs and not creating something for mass production. We are all different, and so are our yoga needs! A series of postures, yoga style or focus on practice that works for one person may well not work for another. A bespoke video is a video that an instructor has developed for you, based on your specifications.
+ Is yoga safe and adaptable for everyone?
The short answer is, Yes! yoga is absolutely for everyone! However, not all types, styles and levels of yoga are for everyone. In fact, you can really hurt yourself if you do yoga thats not suited to you. When we have specific problems, injuries or ailments and we attempt yoga in a class environment, or attempt to follow a yoga video that is aimed to appeal broadly, we can end up hurting ourselves. However, if you do yoga with care and adequate individualised instruction, it is totally safe.
+ What does it cost to join if I am a (a) student, or (b) instructor?
Nothing, de nada, zip.
+ Who can have a yoga profile page on YOGICOMM?
Qualified yoga instructors. When signing up, all yoga teachers have to provide copies of their yoga teachers certififcations.
+ Can I use the YOGICOMM platform and join a yoga studio in my community?
Yes. YOGICOMM is intended to supplement and enrich yoga studio and community practice. It is an affordable and convenient way to gain individual instruction and this can be done on conjunction with participating in group classes, if they are suitable to your needs. In addition, YOGICOMM is for yoga instructors who have studio commitments. It allows them to expand their client base and focus on the individual needs of their clients outside of the studio.
+ Why individualised yoga guidance?
You may need a bit of help in starting out on your yoga journey - this is the perfect way to ease into a safe and regular practice that is most beneficial for you. Or, perhaps you are familiar with yoga but have specific ailments you wish to address and alleviate in a focused manner. Or, perhaps you are an advanced yogi and want to perfect a particular challenging pose or transition. Perhaps you are a yoga instructor who wants to broaden their skill set and offer different types of yoga sequences and experiences. Group classes do not allow for that individualised focus and YOGICOMM is a way in which you target your needs more safely and effectively.
+ How does payment work?
Once you have come to a mutual agreement with your chosen instructor over email (link from their yoga instructor page) regarding what bespoke video sequence option is going to work best for you, the instructor will send you a YOGICOMM invoice. Payment is made via PayPal or EFT. Proof of payment to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your instructor will then immediately begin working on your video sequence and will upload it on our file sharing portal - YOGICOMM Sharespace - for you within 1 week. You will be notified when the video is ready and will be given a password to access it. Your password and user name for the Sharespace will be maintained and you can then re-enter this file sharing portal with ease the next time you get a bespoke video file.
+ What does a bespoke video cost?
As we are an open source marketplace we do not dictate to instructors what they should charge for their videos. It is entirely up the instructor to set their price for the content they have created. Some instructors charge more than others, often depending on their level of experience, expertise and country of origin. Also, there are varying lengths of yoga videos - a 20minute video is likely to be a lot less than a 60minute video! Charges can range from 5 US$ to 70US$.
+ What payment methods can I use with YOGICOMM?
YOGICOMM currently accepts PayPal payments and EFT (electronic financial transfer). Please specify with your instructor what payment method you would prefer. YOGICOMM will service you with an electronic invoice.
+ What if I want to check whether I am following my YOGICOMM personalised yoga video correctly?
+ What if I don't like the video the instructor I choose creates for me?
+ How do I know this is really original content, and that my video that I paid for is not being re-hashed/copied from elsewhere?
A bespoke service is our speciality. Each sequence is for you and you alone. You will see that the instructor will mention your name and speak to you and your needs throughout the video.
+ What if I get injured whilst following a YOGICOMM video?
