Hello again,  Everyone!

International Veterans Yoga Day is just around the corner, and we’re so glad that you have chosen to participate. Here is a bit of intel to enhance your viewing experience.

We've updated this since the last time it went out. Here are the important changes:

1. Try to play this video:

If you can watch Zach doing handstands, your connection speed will allow you to view the event.  Even if you tried before, try it again, because we streamed a new file that will behave exactly as the streamed video on the day of the event.

And please send us a photo or video of you doing handstands when you're done.

2. An astute reader pointed out that we were incorrect in saying that the event started at Noon EST, which would stand for Eastern Standard Time. The more accurate notation is Noon EDT, or Eastern Daylight Time, since most of the United States is in Daylight Savings mode. At any rate, when it's noon in New York City, we'll be live with Rolf Gates.

But don't wait until then to tune in. We will begin broadcasting at 11AM EDT with exciting pre-class content, including interviews with vets, behind the scenes footage, and who knows what else.

If you received (and read) this email last week, you can stop here, but if not, the rest contains some information you might find very useful.

When

Our broadcast will begin around 11AM EDT on Friday the 27th and will feature behind the scenes footage, information about vets and yoga, interviews with veterans and teachers, and other engaging content leading up to the historic event!

The live class with Rolf Gates will start at:

  • High noon EDT on site and for the US East Coast
  • 9AM PDT, for our US West Coast friends, 
  • 10AM MDT in Denver, 
  • 11AM CDT in Chicago.

The rest of you around the globe can use this handy tool:

Remember to tune in early!

How to Watch

Watching the event will be pretty simple. On your desktop or mobile device, just go to  http://internationalveteransyogaday.com . We suggest tuning in as early as you can.

The video will be available to watch there, but if you have any trouble, you have a few other options.

You can go to  http://livestream.com/yogaformen

Or you can download the Livestream app for these devices. Once you’ve installed the app, just search for Yoga for Men or International Veterans Yoga Day.

Put Your Connection to the Test

The event will be broadcast in HD quality, which means a resolution of 1280 by 720. This should  provide a great picture for those who have the proper bandwidth, which is about 5 megabits per second. There are two easy ways to test this. If you are going to be showing your video in a public place, we recommend both:

  1. On the device and in the location where you’ll be showing the live stream, go to  http://speedtest.net . Don’t click on any of the ads, just click on “Begin Test”. If Speedtest shows a download speed of 5M or greater, you’ll be golden.
  2. Simply navigate to  http://goo.gl/4LhKms . If you can watch that video, you’ll be able to watch the stream. Plus, you can polish your handstand chops.

 

Go Big

If you are going to be showing the event in a large space, you may want to get it onto your big screen. Here are some ways to make that happen:

  Use Airplay from your iOS device and stream to an Apple TV

  1. Connect your iOS device and Airplay on the same WiFI network that your Apple TV is on.
  2. On your iOS device, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to open Control Center.
  3. Next, tap Airplay symbol.
  4. Finally, tap the name of the device you want to stream the content to ( Apple TV). You can also choose Chromecast, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Xbox One and Playstation 4, which we will cover below.

To stream from an Android device to your Chromecast on TV

  1. Connect your Android device to the same Wi-Fi network as your Chromecast.
  2. Open the Google Cast app.
  3. In the top left corner, tap the navigation drawer.
  4. Tap the Cast Screen button
  5. Select your Chromecast.

 

You’ll be able to do a similar setup on the Xbox One & Playstation 4. However, the easiest way might be to view from the browsers on the gaming consoles.

For those of you with a Roku or Amazon Fire TV, you’ll be able to stream some content via your mobile device to those streaming boxes. The easiest way would be to download the free Livestream app on the Roku & Amazon Fire TV and watch from there, linked above.

 

If you have any questions, email  vets@yogaformen.com , and we’ll get back to you asap.

 

See you on the mat!
