Pilates coming to a laptop near you....
I hope you are all well, in amongst all the uncertainty we find ourselves in.
As we have all be asked to self isolate, I am now going to teach online. This is new to me and of course will test all of our technology skills.
Who says we can't teach an old dog new tricks?
From Monday 23rd March, 2020, for 2 weeks I will teach your classes this way, then we can have a break for Easter 6th April till Friday 17th April, and then we will resume classes, on Monday 20th April either in person at my studio or continue online. (Depending on whats happening by then)
I have created a ZOOM account, and as the HOST I will invite you to you to join a class via email.
I will text or Whatsapp you to notify an invite has gone out.(Emails sometimes go to junk mail)
I will follow my normal timetable, but there will be room to accommodate you where possible.Please let me know if you not available, so we are not waiting for you.
When you receive your email simply click on the MEETING ID LINK within the email (in blue) and you will be prompted to download the software,after which you will easily be able to join the class online.
SIMPLE, well fingers crossed, some computers may need the settings adjusted, but on the whole it is working well.
WHAT DO I NEED?
You can use your laptop, tablet or smartphone.
Please check your internet link is strong and the audio and video setting on your device is on.
I will start at 8.45am, 10am and 11.15am (Monday & Tuesday)so there will be 15mins between each class. , so log in 5mins before, so we can sort out teething problems and have quick chat. The time of the class will be on the email.
Use a mat if you have one, cushion, and if you have spiky balls or bands, have them close by. (Or just put a towel on the floor.)
As always let me know if your health has changed and if any problems that might affect your ability to exercise.
Our classes will be primarily taught verbally, and I can keep a close eye on your movements.
Please try and position your screen in landscape so i can see you lying down in relaxation position. Whilst you are lying down you may not see me clearly, but you will HEAR me!
Be aware that you will have to self check and be responsible for your own bodies.
I'm looking forward to seeing you online, through the screen, make sure you have room to move, and not knock over any valuables.
I am reducing the cost of a class, I will aim to have only 4 people in a session, (there maybe an extra 1 or 2 if folk want to change their normal time). £12 a session. Payment can be arranged by bank transfers, or cheque ,or you can pay me when I next see you.
We will have some fun, keep moving, keep in touch, and not infect each other,
Please ring me if you have any concerns, 07771752816,
STAY CALM & PILATES ON.
