Online Group Classes
For the time being all of my private individual sessions and group classes will be offered online via live link up.
I know that for some the idea of live video is a little daunting, I even had an apprehension about this myself. However, with the current situation and an important need to stay connected the live link up is proving to offer my Client's the support, positivity, ease and comfort that is required.
In addition to receiving the positive healing and wellbeing vitals that yoga offers.
For each scheduled session a link will be generated by Google Hangouts Meet which will give you access to the live stream. You won’t have to download anything onto your device – the link will take you straight to the scheduled session.
1. How it Works?
I will be holding weekly classes from now on as an online live video link up.
My sessions are tailored to support the current situation that we are in and to help calm our nervous system, to provide tools to help deal with stress, anxiety and other related symptoms and to provide a space of positive community.
The sessions will be delivered weekly as follows:
Virtual Therapeutic Yoga : Tuesdays 7pm - 8pm
Virtual Yoga and Yoga Nidra : Thursdays 7pm - 8pm
The virtual technology is very easy to work without the need to download anything.
You will require a laptop/tablet and a robust broadband.
The classes will be charged at a reduced rate of £6 per session.
2. Technical Details
You will need to use a laptop or tablet. Set it up somewhere that you will have good visibility of the screen.
Set your mat and any blocks, cushions etc. at a comfortable distance from your screen where you will have enough room to move.
Most common browsers will run Google Hangouts:- MS Edge, Firefox, Mozilla, Chrome, Opera, etc.
It isn’t essential that I see you, or be able to hear you. However, if you do want to chat with others at the beginning of the session, then please ensure that your webcam and microphone are turned on. Remember to check your virus guard as they usually turn off webcam by default.
Once the session starts, I will ask you to mute your microphone otherwise any sounds will cut off my speech.
There is a typed chat option where you can type in questions as we go along. You can also ‘unmute’ if you need to ask a very important question.
3. Yes please, I want to join a group session
If you wish to join a session, please make payment for the session that you require (including ref for the class). See how to pay below.
Upon receipt of your payment a link will be sent via email. The link can be added to your calendar as a reminder too.
The session will be opened around 10-15 mins before the class starts and to join simply open your email and click on the 'Join Hangouts Meet', this will allow you to open the link on your device for the live stream.
Please ensure that you email to be added to the group session and make payment 30 mins prior to each sessions start time.
Each participant will have to be personally accepted by me before gaining access to the class. I will be making a list beforehand so I know who to accept. If you have an email address that bears no semblance to your name, please let me know so that I can recognise you when you log in!
In the event that you pay for a session but fail to attend for any reason, you can have a credit for another session.
3. How do I know what will be running when?
Keep an eye on the my website and Facebook page for the new Online Classes page as new online sessions may be added.
During this period of time I am aware that finances are going to be stretched and so I will be offering these sessions at the reduced rate of £6.00.
