The live lessons will be held on Zoom.
Each classes Zoom link is on the Live Classes page.
You can join the meeting in one of two ways:
Option 1 – Via My Site
Find the class you’d like to join on the Live Classes page here. (Scroll down to ‘Join A Class’) Choose your class and click the button.
If you’ve not already download the Zoom programme you will be prompted to do so at this point (it’s free).
A pop up will emerge, make sure zoom.us is highlighted as shown here and then click OPEN LINK.
When prompted please do give access to your microphone AND camera/video. Click JOIN WITH COMPUTER AUDIO, where you will then be placed in a ‘waiting room’ until I grant you access to the class.
Option 2 – Via Zoom Site
Download Zoom here and select Sign Up (It’s FREE), follow their instructions.
Once downloaded, open Zoom.
Using a Computer? You can find Zoom in your applications/programs. Using a Phone/Tablet? You can find it via the Zoom Icon. Select JOIN A MEETING.
Enter the meeting ID (found on the Live Classes page) and complete the ‘Register’. Click JOIN, where you will then be placed in a ‘waiting room’ until I grant you access to the class.
First time users please refer to to Zoom’s tutorial page here.
NB: IF YOU ARE LATE, I will may be teaching and there could be a delay until you are given access, or in some instances you may not get into class.
NB: I will see and hear you all, but once class starts I shall MUTE everyone so I won’t hear you, you’ll just hear me.
NB: There are two options to view the class, Speaker View or Gallery View, I suggest speaker view then once class starts you’ll see me as the main picture.
TIP: I recommend you use a desktop or laptop if possible (the bigger the screen the better) so you have a better view of the class.
PLEASE: If you are playing music, have the TV on or just people chatting in the background, please mute your screen so everyone else doesn’t have to hear it.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will we all be able to see each other?
You will mainly see me as the ‘host’ on the screen, there is also a very small strip along the top of the screen where each person attending is shown, but this is small and the more people that join the less you can see. You do have the option to ‘hide’ yourself and just your name will be shown.
Will we hear each other?
I have the controls being the ‘host’. I shall set the audio so that for the 10minutes before class we can chat, then once we start I will ‘mute’ everyone so that only my speaker is on, just incase your dog barks, your phone rings, kids come running in or you break wind – no one else will hear!
Do I need to bring equipment to class?
A mat is ideal, but not essential as you can practice on any floor, but a mat gives better cushioning and friction. Bring a blanket to class (and a block if you have one) as we may use those.
Do I need technical experience?
Not really, but you do need to be able to get onto the internet and ideally with a screen camera so that I can see you, otherwise you’ll be able to see me but I won’t see you.
Are there any pre-requisites?
Pre requisite of joining the online LIVE classes with me, from my home are a PC, MAC, iPad or Android, ideally with built in camera and a space with minimal distraction for 30-45mins.
I want to join but can’t afford it at the moment.
Please get in touch with me, together we’ll work something out so you can still join in. I’d rather you do that than you not be able to benefit.
