ONLINE Session VIA ZOOM or FaceTime
Currently our sessions are LIVE. They are
60 minute online Privates and classes via mat props or apparatus.
The Pilates mat is quite challenging and. it could be just what you need. Some students have props such as foam rollers, bands, balls or even reformer/towers and such. We can give you an amazing workout with you using your pilates apparatus.
With our busy lifestyle it can be challenging to find time for ourselves. Live online lessons are a great way to fit in some “self-care” from the comfort of your own home, office, or travel destination. No need to worry about travel time, weather disruptions, or finding child care. Online lessons allow you to fit movement back into your life!
How does it work?
I use Zoom video conferencing for our online live sessions. Once you have scheduled an appointment you will receive a link by email. Five minutes before your lesson begins simple click the link to enter the meeting. If I am not there yet, don’t worry, I will join shortly. I will walk you through a 30 minute Pilates lesson on your mat tailored to your body. It’s that simple! You get the benefits of a private lesson structured to your needs from the comfort of your home. Please be sure to read our set-up & troubleshooting guide below prior to your first lesson. This will ensure we get to maximize our time together focusing on your movement goals.
You can access zoom from your computer OR download the free app to access on your smartphone or tablet.
Who is this for?
This option is perfect for you if:
You live in a rural area where Pilates is not offered
You work full-time and fitting a class into your day is challenging
You love to travel but want to keep up with your Pilates practice or
You are a Mom trying to bring movement back into your busy life.
SET UP GUIDE
Step 1: Set up your space
Grab a mat. A Pilates mat is thicker than a yoga mat. It is important to have the extra thickness for any of the exercises where you will be rolling on your spine.
Find a quiet location, & turn up the lights. Lighting will make it easier for me to see & correct you as you move.
Please place your computer, smartphone, or tablet far enough away that your instructor can see your whole body. Please ensure it is on a stable surface.
Step 2: Set up your technology
We will be using zoom video conferencing for our live private sessions.
Be sure to download the plugin (on your computer) or the app (smartphone or tablet) prior to our first lesson.
After you book your appointment you will receive an email with a link to your call.
Five minutes before your lesson begins simple click on the link to enter the live session.
Ensure your computer, smartphone, or tablet is charged or plugged into a power source prior to the lesson.
Step 3: Set up your body
Wear something comfortable. You want clothing that is easy to move in but not too loose so I can easily make corrections to your movement.
A lighter shade is preferred (especially for your top) as it is easier for me to see your alignment as you move.
