Online Yoga Classes with Robin
I’ve chosen a question and answer format to give you the information you need.
Are the Classes Suitable for Beginners?
Sadly not. I need to keep a special eye on beginners to make sure they are practising in safety and comfort and this can only be done effectively in a live class.
What are the days and times of the classes on offer?
Monday 7.30 pm
Tuesday 10.15 am
Tuesday 8.00 pm
Wednesday 10.00 am
Wednesday 7.45 pm
Thursday 6.30 pm
Each class runs for one hour and a half.
Which host platform am I using?
Zoom. No doubt many of you will be familiar with it. It’s very user friendly.
Are the Classes Private?
The classes are for members only, by subscription. They are live and interactive. Subscription is limited to 13 members for each class..
What if I have to miss a class?
If, in a given week, you have to miss the class you’ve signed up to, you can come to another class that week (times are listed above). However for the sake of continuity you are encouraged to come, where possible, to your regular class. If you can't get to any live classes in a given week I will send you a recorded session. ( n.b. Only I am visible on the recorded session.)
How does the system work?
If you are not computer savvy, fear not! The Zoom platform is very user friendly. You don't need to download an app. You’ll receive an email from me at the beginning of each week inviting you to join your class. You simply click on the highlighted link and there you are on the platform. Three more clicks and there you are with me and your fellow class members, seeing and talking to each other as we assemble for the class!
When the time comes to start the class I’ll switch so that you can see and hear only me. However, I shall be able to see you and cue or help you if the need arises (I’ve invested in a large monitor screen so I can see you more clearly). At the end of the class I’ll switch us back to the mode where we can see and hear each other so that you can give feedback, ask questions and we can take leave of one another.
Can I come to a trial class to see how I get on?
I recommend that you do. If you’d like to try a class please email me and let me know which class you’d like to come to. I’ll reply with the link to join that class. When the time of your class approaches, you click on that link to arrive at the platform about 10 minutes before start time.
What if I’m insecure about the technical aspects of arriving at and using the Zoom platform for my trial class?
As well as the link to your first class, your acknowledgement email will include a step-by-step guide of how to proceed when you arrive at the Zoom platform.
However, if you feel you’d like individual support when you arrive at the platform please email me to request it. We can arrange for you to arrive 20 minutes before the class starts and I’ll be there to welcome you and help you. This way you’ll be settled in ready for the start time.
In the unlikely event that you experience any glitches arriving at the platform you can call me on 01865 552811
What is the Cost?
Your trial class is £8. Should you decide to sign up you’ll buy a block of six sessions for £48. Co-habiting couples can share a space for £12 each class.
What if restrictions are lifted during the current block of six sessions?
Naturally everybody all over the UK will want to get back to their regular live class soon as it is safe to do so. If this return to normality happens during a six week block you will receive a full refund for any online classes you miss.
What if I become ill?
I hope and trust you remain virus free. But should you succumb to it you will not be charged for any sessions you miss whilst you are unwell.
I hope this covers everything you need to know about the classes but please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any queries.
I hope to see you at your trial class.
