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 isn’t just for dancing anymore! And you can social distance!

Silent Disco equipment is usually rented to people who are hosting a dance party with either live DJ’s or their own music playlists.

There are many other uses outlined below but in the wake of Coronavirus Covid-19, Silent Disco Headphones are also allow users to be 6 feet apart and still hear the audio clearly.

Silent Disco Headphones allow the group to Socially distance as much as they want and still participate.

Consider walking tours:

It was already tough to hear the leader clearly in a walking tour, but add social distancing and it is nearly impossible unless the leader is amplified.

Now the leader can use our battery-powered portable transmitter and the accompanied microphone.

The participants wear the silent disco headphones so they can hear clearly while spreading out and still feeling like part of the group.

Yoga:

Yoga classes depend on the participants being able to hear clearly and to focus on what the instructor is saying. The headphones help to keep participants on track by blocking out distracting noises. We offer you an updated and more thorough post on socially distanced silent disco yoga here.

A yoga instructor wants their own music and voice to be soft enough to be relaxing and the independent volume controls on the silent disco headphones help each user to set the volume that is right for them.

The headphones also allow classes to be taught in places where a sound system would not be welcome. Classes could be held in a park or an office building, any place that you wouldn’t be able to access without them.

Zumba: Outdoors with plenty of distancing:

Zumba usually involves loud music with lot’s of bass. This prevents Zumba instructors from teaching classes outdoors, in parks or in public places where amplified music would disturb others. Even if a class is taught in a studio, the volume of amplified music can disturb the studio next door if the rooms are not soundproofed.

With loud Zumba music, the independent volume controls are even more useful than with soft Yoga music. Dancers want their music volume just right.

FM powered Wireless headphones are an excellent alternative to loudspeakers even when only using one channel.

One of the reasons Zumba students leave instructors who use traditional loudspeakers is because of differences in music volume preferences. The headphones completely eliminate that concern.

Workouts:

Similar to Zumba, workout classes have a strong emphasis on music volume. The volume of the instructor’s voice is subject to personal preference. Since everybody has their own volume control when using Silent Disco equipment, they can focus more on what the instructor is saying and spend less time thinking they are too loud or too soft.

Workouts can be a more motivational, more intimate, more personal and more inspiring experiences when wearing our headphones.

They can also be socially distanced.

Roller Skating Rinks / Roller Skating Parties:

The music you play at a roller skating rink defines who skates and who leaves.

Give your skaters three channel headphones and you can play three different genres of music simultaneously. This allows you to please more varied musical tastes which means more people will love the music.

When skaters can select their favorite genre at their favorite volume. They stay longer, they have more fun and they tell their friends to come along next time.

Backyard Movies:

Showing a movie in the backyard is fun for kids parties, but if you don’t have the volume turned up, movies lose a lot of their trill. But, if you turn up the volume too high, the neighbors complain.

Of course, the headphones solve that problem and everyone can listen at their own volume.

Now, thanks to silent disco headphones, you can social distance while watching!

Simultaneous movies while socially distancing:

Showing three movies at the same time is the perfect solution when you are trying to get a large group to come over for a movie night. How do you decide what movie to show?

Some people want a chic flick, some want to watch a thriller movie and still others want serious drama.

Wouldn’t it be great to show all three movies simultaneously? With each headphone wearing guest having the ability to choose one of three channels, they can watch the one they like while sitting in the same room as their friends who are listening to a different screening!

Museum tours-6 feet apart:

Some people want the tour, others don’t. Additionally, some people pay extra for the tour. The headphones cover both instances. Only the guests wearing headphones are hearing the tour guide.

A twist on this theme uses all three channels is when you have multiple tour guides working the same space but covering different material simultaneously. Now the tourist chooses which tour guide to listen to depending on which topic they are most interested in.

This also works with simultaneous different languages. You have the Spanish speaking tour guide on the green channel, the Chinese speaking tour guide on red channel and the English speaking guide broadcasting on the blue channel.

Live musical performances outdoors :

If you are trying to host a live musical performance in an urban area with noise ordinances, the headphones solve your logistics problem.

There are many locations where only one band playing through traditional loudspeakers would be too loud. Add the headphones and suddenly you can add more entertainment into the same space.

Consider a resort area where entertainment density is the key to attracting more people. With three channels available on the headphones, they can easily triple the entertainment value of any given space.

Simultaneous live musical performances/battle of the bands:

In a music festival environment you might want to hold a battle of the bands with all three bands playing at once! You could do it Silent Disco style if the bands were using electric instruments and in-ear-monitors.

Your battle of the bands competition would be much more fair if they were all playing simultaneously. They’d have the exact same audience and no one would get the unfair advantage of starting first. Also, the audience would not be subject to waiting while the next band gets ready.

The audience can only hear them on the headphones AND the audience can choose which band to listen to. Because the headphones light up in the color the listeners chooses, the winner could be seen visually.

Backyard comedy show:

Once you get any number of guests in your backyard, a comedian is going to need a sound system. Suddenly the neighbors are involved. Headphones stop that problem in its tracks.

Simultaneous side shows:

Three vaudeville style performers on three different stages on three different sides of the room performing simultaneously? With headphones, it could happen!

Factory floor meetings or tours:

Some factories are very noisy. If you don’t have a big meeting room, but you still want to have a meeting with all the employees, use our FM wireless headphones.

Sure you could use loudspeakers to add even more noise on top of the factory noise, but your staff is going to be resentful of it.

With over-the-ear styling, the headphones shut out some of the ambient noise making it easier to hear the presenter and easier to focus on what they are saying.

Construction site meetings or tours:

Same as above. If you can’t stop the noise and have nowhere to go, just hold the meeting using our headphones. They cut out the ambient noise and help participants to focus on the message.

Golf tournaments:

There is supposed to be silence when the golf-pro takes his shot. Perfect place for a dance party! 😉 🙄
