Live, Virtual Classes Delivered via ‘ZOOM’
We have a wide range of classes which we provide to small groups. To get the best experience from one of our virtual classes, please follow the steps below.
To join us online in one of our virtual classes please follow the steps below:
1) Get ready with Zoom – Download the free app ‘Zoom Client for Meetings’ from Zoom
Zoom is a provider of software that supports video conferencing, web conferencing and webinars. In short it allows us to virtually interact with each other at these times when in-person classes aren’t possible. This is all done via the internet or in the ‘cloud’.
A Zoom Meeting is just a video conferencing meeting that’s hosted via Zoom and accessed through the Zoom app. Join with video ie your camera enabled or just audio or both.
To join you need the unique meeting ID created when we set up the class for that week. This is sent to you just before the class.
You only need to download the meeting application from Zoom – ‘Zoom Client for Meetings.’
Optionally you may wish to register and create a free account with Zoom – use your personal email.
If you register with them then sign in and test your audio connection before the class start time.
2) Book the class – Book the class through MindBody using the schedule on the ‘Timetable‘ page
To be included in any of our online classes you must register / book your place no less than 30 minutes prior to the class start time.
You will be sent an email link with the unique meeting ID for that class created when we set up the class for that week and day. You will need this ID to join the ZOOM hosted yoga class.
3) Await the invite
We are so pleased you are joining us – but in order for all of us to have a refreshing and relaxing experience it is necessary for you to ensure that your microphone is on MUTE throughout the class, which is easily located in the bottom left hand corner of your screen.
The exception to this is at the beginning and end of the class we will all say hello with microphone on UNMUTE, so that there is a feeling of being together in the practice, so we will UNMUTE on arrival and then MUTE during the class.
At the end of the class you will again be invited to UNMUTE – so we can say goodbye.
4) To join the class
Open the zoom application and select ‘join a meeting’. When prompted enter the meeting ID that the teacher has sent you via email.
Please join the meeting 5 minutes before the class start time. The meetings are set-up to start with participants cameras turned off and their microphone muted.
Note the quality of the picture and sound will be much better from a laptop or PC, consider also connecting to a TV or Monitor – a mobile phone may be very small and the sound quality much less.
To pin the teachers video feed to be the on in view, hover over the picture of the teacher, 3 dots will appear at the top right of the picture, click these, in the drop down menu that appears, choose ‘PIN video’.
We appreciate your feedback. For us this is all new and we are learning as we go along. Kindly take time to send us a short email afterwards and let us know what you thought.
Looking forward to connecting with you in this different way and thank you for joining us!
