Record Your Yoga Class


iHanuman has a professional recording studio where you are welcome to record and work with our team. We also travel and work on location to RECORD YOUR YOGA CLASS. If you would like iHanuman to record your Yoga Class, please Contact Us for more information.

We ALSO want to empower YOU to record YOUR own classes and DISTRIBUTE them with iHanuman. In an effort to encourage you to create your own yoga media, we offer the following recording equipment recommendations for yoga teachers.

We provide very simple but powerful tools to help you once you've recorded your class. All you have to do is login and upload and our system will take care of making the right format for distribution. Seamlessly, from there it can either be added to our store, our features, or your private account profile.

Here are some small, medium and larger recording setups that we can recommend based on our experience in the field:

Recording Devices:

The Zoom H4n Handy Recorder

Studio Sound From This Versatile Recorder!

The Zoom H4n portable recorder makes it easy to capture 4-track studio-grade recordings - anywhere. This next-generation recorder from Zoom is loaded with all the features you need, as well as a bunch of extras, so you'll be ready for nearly any recording situation - the H4n has two onboard stereo condenser microphones, inputs for your own microphones, 50 built-in DSP effects, handy practice tools, and even a built-in speaker. You'll also love the unique Stamina Mode, which doubles your battery life, so you have nearly 11 hours of untethered recording time with your H4n.

Built-in stereo microphones capture a perfect stereo image

Zoom's H4n features two high-quality stereo condenser microphones, arranged in an X/Y pattern. Not only can you just "point and shoot" to capture audio, but because of the special pattern, you'll automatically capture with exceptionally natural depth and accurate imaging. Plus, you can rotate the microphones into two different positions - one that's perfect for up-close miking, and another that sounds amazing when you want to capture a wide sound field, such as a live band performance.

USB Hookup makes transfer of files easy. More Information From Sweetwater Sound...

Tascam HDP2

The Professional's Choice for Challenging Recording Applications

Co-developed with Frontier Systems, the TASCAM HD-P2 portable high-definition Stereo Recorder can capture audio at up to 24-bit resolution and sampling rates of up to 192kHz onto CompactFlash media. The audio files are instantly available for editing or transfer to DAWs through the built-in FireWire connection. As you'd expect for pro applications, the HD-P2 includes high-end features like SMPTE timecode input for synchronization to external devices while in record or playback mode. What's more, it lets you handle those stressful "one-take-only" situations with ease thanks to the large, angled LCD and fast, intuitive user interface. More Information from Sweetwater Sound...


Shure SM57

The SM57 has probably recorded 90% of all snare drums and guitar amps in existence! It could be rightly called the "Swiss Army Knife" of modern music. The SM57 is the sound you hear on the radio - it's been used for decades to mic everything from snare drums to guitar amps to vocals, and just about everything else. It's in almost every studio - and on thousands of stages - all over the world!

With its bright, clean sound and carefully contoured presence rise, the SM57 is ideal for live sound reinforcement and recording. It has an extremely effective cardioid pickup pattern which isolates the main sound source while minimizing background noise. More Information from Sweetwater Sound...

Wireless Microphones

Sennheiser EW 112-G3

Perfect Wireless System For Recording Your Yoga Class!

Sennheiser's EW 112 G3 wireless system gives you everything you need to achieve great-sounding audio during presentations. This system comes with an inconspicuous ME 2 clip-on lavalier microphone that's designed to reproduce speech naturally. What's more, the Sennheiser EW 112 G3 wireless system comes with a bodypack transmitter — with a rechargeable battery — so it's ready to stand up to day-in and day-out use. An easy-to-setup, sturdy rackmountable receiver rounds out the handy Sennheiser EW 112 G3 wireless system.More from Sweetwater Sound...
