Additional Online Class Info:
- You will need to download the free app Zoom Cloud Meetings. You will then sign in to class using the Meeting ID and Password that will be sent to you. Before signing up for your first class, we will need to 'meet' online so that I can discuss and health issues with you.
- Please set up in a quiet room with minimal noise and distractions. You should set up your mat 2-3 metres away from your camera so that I can view your whole body and give verbal instructions for any corrections. If you have two mats then set them up in a T-shape.
- Check that your device is fully charged and ideally that it is plugged in so that you can enjoy the full class without losing power.
- You will need some basic equipment such as blocks, blankets and a strap. You do not need the traditional equipment, any suitable alternatives will do. For blankets, you need firm ones, not soft fleece blankets - beach or bath towels also work well. If you do not have a strap, you could use a kitbag strap, an old tie, or even a soft/canvas belt. An alternative to blocks could be a small bench, a biscuit tin, DVD box set or a stack of books. Guruji once did a backbend over his bicycle, so get creative.
- Please sign on early so that we can tend to any technical glitches before class starts. This will also give you a chance to catch up with the others in class.
