Many people have taken to doing fitness and exercise classes online during lockdown, with yoga proving popular despite the challenges of not having a teacher in the room.
"It is a holistic practice; you get a bit of everything from it - fitness, combined with some mindfulness - which I think is why so many people are drawn to it at this time," yoga teacher Cat Meffan tells BBC Radio Scotland.
While Ms Meffan does free classes on You Tube, plus paid membership classes via Zoom, she admits that while the teacher can see participants, "it is nothing like being in a class".
"There's a lot to be said for having a space which is just for your yoga practice, especially if you have got family and there are kids running around," she adds.
"Trying to angle the camera can be tricky. There is only so much a teacher can give you in terms of adjustment and cues for alignment through the lens of your laptop or phone."
Accountants MKS has laid on a wide array of activities on Zoom to keep staff spirits high while working from home.

Aline Mazimpaka is trying to demystify yoga for her fellow Rwandans, who have been suspicious of the ancient form of exercise, which originated in India years ago and focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost wellbeing.
“The hardest challenge has been the society - people were telling me I am devil worshipping, because they don’t know yoga. It was very hard.”
But she has set up a non-profit centre that teaches yoga in return for donations and says more people are joining it every day.
The 33-year-old, who trained in Kenya, India and Thailand to become a yoga master, was introduced to it at university in 2010.
She found that it was very therapeutic as what had happened in Rwanda in 1994, during the genocide, had left her with psychological wounds.
These had not healed until she started practising yoga.
“It was a complex journey to my dream that started as a therapy,” she says.
“Yoga healed my wounds, later it became my job and my life that I am sharing with fellow Rwandans.”
