Yoga in the Park with Silent Disco Headphones: The Perfect Social Distancing Solution

Your yoga class wants to meet but your indoor studio is too small for social distancing? We got ya covered!

Yoga in the park, silent disco style! It’s the perfect socially distanced solution!

Statistics show that fresh outdoor air is much better at stopping virus particles, – not to mention that it is far easier to social distance outdoors.

Besides, who doesn’t want to do yoga in the park?

But how will people hear your instructions and how do you charge admission when meeting out doors?

Silent Disco will allow you to meet silently in the park while being socially distanced. (And no more need to get permission from the park to use a PA or Loudspeakers. )

You can charge admission per headphone, and be fully battery powered. (No electrical outlet needed!)

As an additional benefit, you will gain new students because random visitors to the park will see you teaching and want to sign on!

Some will join you right away, while others will take your flyer with your schedule and contact info in order to catch you next time. (Note to self: Remember to bring fliers)

We’ll show you how it works below. Use our click-able table of contents for your reading convenience:

It’s Easy! We supply all you need!

We supply the wireless silent-disco headphones (fully disinfected) and the battery powered portable transmitters through our rental program.

We also supply a lapel mic that plugs into our portable transmitters so your class can hear you.

You supply your music using your cell phone, which connects to our transmitter via BlueTooth.

These transmitters are perfect for leading socially distanced yoga classes outdoors.

Silent disco? Why silent disco headphones instead of regular ones.

You connect your voice and music to our transmitter, which in turn, broadcasts to the wireless headphones worn by your students.

Silent disco headphones have a 300 meter range (328 yards) which allows your class to spread out more – social distance style!

They’re perfect for kickin’ some corona butt in the year of the pandemic!

Bluetooth headphones with their wimpy range of about 30 feet won’t work for this gig!

Your voice will reach your student’s ears directly through the headphones via the lapel mic connected to the transmitter we send. Your music is coming through the headphones too, and you can adjust the volume of each independently.

The headphones give you an easy way to charge admission when you are outdoors. Only those who pay admission will receive the headphones.

If you were simply using a PA or loudspeakers for your session, anybody could join in and they would not have to pay. With the headphones, you simply charge per headphone.

Boom! Who’s a money magnet? You are!

Headphones allow better focus and volume control!

Our over-the-ear headphones help your yoga class to focus because they block out ambient noises from crowds and traffic. No more distractions!

Each headphone has its own volume control, so your participants can adjust it to their own listening comfort.

Plot Twist! The headphones allow you to have multiple classes simultaneously in the same space!

Whaaa???

These headphones are the three channel type with a channel switch for the user. This feature would only be used if you decide to have multiple classes being taught at the same time.

Can you imagine three different levels of yoga taught to an open-invitation outdoor audience? No more worrying about the advanced students being bored while the beginning students are being overwhelmed.

The teacher on channel one could be teaching at a beginner level, -channel two intermediate, and channel three would be advanced level.

Each teacher would have their own transmitter. (Each transmitter represents a channel) You could have up to three teachers or three classes being taught simultaneously in the same space.

Your participants would decide which teacher they want to follow with a flick of the channel switch.

When teaching only one class at a time, all students would stay on the same channel.

Wait! Are these Silent Disco Headphones fully disinfected and Covid 19 safe??

Yes. They’re disinfected AF!

We fully disinfect the headphones between each rental using products certified by the EPA as able to kill coronaviruses including Covid 19.

Shipping time also kills coronaviruses and it takes time for them to be shipped from our place to yours. Recent studies show that the viruses die off after 3-5 days from a hard surface and less than one day from a porous surface.

Depending on how far away from us you live, the shipping time alone will kill any coronavirus particles. We have your safety as #1!

You might want to have disinfectant wipes available on your end for your students, but we take care of the headphones.

What makes it all work? The magic of the portable silent disco transmitter

Our Silent Disco Transmitter is Wireless, battery powered, offers bluetooth connectivity and a lapel mic.
This portable silent disco transmitter works great for classes where the instructor needs to move around while using a microphone.

You can use an audio cable or Bluetooth to connect your music to the transmitter.

You probably don’t want to carry your phone around while teaching yoga. So instead of using the audio cable, we recommend using Bluetooth connectivity for your music.

With Bluetooth, you are not tied to your phone. But if you want to carry your phone around, you do have the option of using an audio-cable for your connection.

They hear you better! How the mic works.

As shown in the image above, the microphone is a wired lapel mic. The transmitter is a belt-pack. (It has a belt clip so you can wear it on your belt or fasten it to your pocket or waistline)

The transmitter has a mute button for the mic as well as a separate volume knob for the mic.

When you are not talking, you just tap the mute button to cut out any ambient noise. Then tap again when you need to be heard.

You would control your music volume using your phone.

Silent Disco Headphones for Fitness Instruction & Classes

Question: I have recently opened a small group fitness studio. I am looking for ways to eliminate sound issues for other tenants in the building. Would Silent Disco Headphones be a viable option?

This post explores why our headphone equipment would be an excellent choice for fitness instructors in a variety of settings.

Let’s start with the transmitters that we offer.

We have two types of transmitters that send your audio to the wireless headphones.

The first requires a power cord for electricity and an additional audio mixer if you are using a microphone.

The second uses rechargeable batteries and is a belt-pack with an integrated microphone. No need for that additional audio mixer and need for a power cord.

Our battery powered transmitter clips onto the fitness instructor’s belt and is perfect for classes using silent disco headphones.

Being so portable and wireless, this particular transmitter allows the instructor to move freely among the participants during the class.

This transmitter comes with a lapel mic and on-board mic controls. This means that the instructor can control their mic volume from their belt.

The instructor will set the microphone volume using the control on their belt-pack. Then they will just tap the mute button on and off as needed during the routine.

The microphone jack is the standard 3.5 mm type which makes it easy to upgrade to a different microphone. Depending on your application, a headset mic may be more effective than the included lapel mic.

Headset mics tend to better for louder environments because they pick up less ambient noise. These can be found on Amazon or other audio stores online.

This particular transmitter also has a Bluetooth connectivity option which allows instructors to have their music on their phone and use Bluetooth to get the music to the transmitter. That, in turn, means the instructor doesn’t have to have an audio cable to their phone for music playback during the workout.

Bluetooth delivers the audio signal between the phone (or device playing the music) and the transmitter. The transmitter transmits to the headphones using a short-range FM signal.

With our battery powered transmitter, you can teach classes outdoors without needing an electrical outlet.

Our wireless headphones would also allow you to teach in public places because there would be no need for amplification. All the sound would be in the headphones.

Teaching in a public place in silence would also be an effective way to market your classes.

You could even allow passerby’s to join your class and charge them for the use of the headphones during the session.

The best way to get new members is to give people a chance to see your class and/or drop in on your class first. Teaching your class in public via silent disco headphones is a perfect way to make that happen.

How would we disinfect the headphones between classes?

Cleaning would similar to the system used by many gyms & health clubs where they ask users to wipe down equipment after they are done using it.

Most health club members are so accustomed to cleaning equipment before and they use it that they would do it without even thinking.

Have disinfectant wipes or spray available to users. Ask each participant to disinfect/spray/wipe down their own headphones after each class.

The ETA has published a list of disinfectants that are certified for killing coronavirus.

Cleaning would take less than a minute for participants and zero labor for your staff. 

For the incoming class, again, have the disinfectant wipes and spray available. Ask them to wipe down/spray their headphones again before they put them on. 
With that double coverage, it is highly doubtful that any bugs or germs could survive  the change-over. 

The headphones are all man-made materials, so they respond well to frequent and thorough disinfection and cleaning.

How well do the headphones stay on your head during energetic fitness routines?

These headphones are designed for hormonally-charged-Rave-Style dancing with leaping and moderate head-banging included. I’m not saying you can’t shake them off, but I am saying that fitness routines tend to be pretty mellow compared to modern rave shows.

Usually people do not attend fitness classes while drunk or tripping, so the level of abuse the headphones would get with exercise classes would be far less than at a dance party.  Regardless, the build quality of these headphones is pretty good for staying on your head during either energetic dancing or athletic calisthenics .

How does the instructor balance the volume of their mic and music on the transmitter?

1) There is a separate mic volume wheel on the transmitter itself. The instructor is wearing the transmitter on their belt, so it is easy to reach.    

2) There is also a mic mute button on the transmitter. – So the instructor would keep it on mute until they want to say something – They would have already adjusted the mic volume to be louder than the music  – There is a bit of built-in compression that will allow the instructor’s voice to be heard over the music. 

3) The music volume coming through the transmitter is controlled by your phone, tablet or laptop volume.

So, the instructor has full control over the ratio of the music volume to their voice volume.   

The headphone wearers can only control their total volume.  In other words, they can’t change the volume of the instructors voice without changing the music volume too.

The above image shows the location of the controls on the transmitter.


To summarize:

By using this transmitter, the instructor doesn’t need a separate DJ to control mic volume or music selection.

The music is coming from the instructor’s phone or laptop or tablet. Their phone, laptop or tablet is connected to the transmitter via Bluetooth.   The music goes directly into the same transmitter as the instructor is wearing on their belt. The same transmitter that has their mic connected.   The transmitter transmits the music and instructor’s voice to the headphones.


All of the headphone wearers would be on the same channel. All of them would be listening to the channel that has the instructor’s choice of music and the instructor’s voice.  If they switch to a different channel on the headphones, they will only hear silence. 

You would not use the multiple channel capacity for workout routines.   Everyone would have to stay on the same channel. 

If it was motivational music only, all three channels could be used. There could be different music on each channel.

But if a fitness instructor is going to be leading athletic routines using their voice, there would have no use for multiple channels.

With the transmitter and the techniques described in this post, you can only have a mic on one channel.   Every participant would be on this channel.

Overall, this battery powered belt-pack transmitter helps to make Silent Disco headphones an excellent choice for fitness instructors of any discipline.
