As a result of the coronavirus situation I have now made my classes available online, through live taught yoga classes on Zoom, audio recordings and video demonstrations. For anyone new to zoom, see below to see how it works. The classes are small and provide a connection with others. I always have an initial chat with any new students before they join a class to complete a health registration form and run through any questions they may have about how to set up for a class on zoom. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns about using the Online Yoga. Rebecca
To teach online yoga I have a big screen so I can see you, but you don’t have to watch the screen during the class as I teach verbally. If I demonstrate a practice, you stop, turn to see the screen and watch. We always spend a few minutes at the start of the class making sure your mat is well positioned for me to see you. I use Zoom to teach. I am the Zoom host so you don’t have to pay anything to Zoom to use their platform. You just follow the instructions on the link I send you and it is really very simple to use.
How do I access the online Yoga?
Online yoga is a subscription service.
When you sign up you will be sent a password and links to get access to:
- all the live classes on Zoom,
- audio recordings of:
- yoga classes
- guided meditations
- yoga nidra deep relaxations
- other yoga practices such as mudra and bandha
- video demonstrations
The subscription fee is £30 per month, paid by direct debit.
In cases of financial hardship, I have an allocation for concessionary rate of £20. (If the concessionary rate is still too much please don’t hesitate to contact me).
I can guide you on how to use the audio recordings and set up for the classes on Zoom. You will need either a computer, laptop, tablet/Ipad or smartphone to use the classes and audio recordings. You can see a zoom class in action beow:
Here is what students say about the live online Yoga classes on Zoom.
And here is some feedback about the audio recordings and live online classes:
“Just to let you know I have done the first lesson and enjoyed it – even the noisy rain! It was like soothing balm in the most bizarre of times.”
“I have found the live online classes really good. I find it helpful to set aside a specific time each week and I look forward to it. It is encouraging to see you and to see other people and have a sense of doing the class together, especially at a time when social contact is so limited. I found the Zoom technology pretty easy but was already using it for other things. There isn’t anything I’ve disliked about the online classes.”
“Thank you so much for these on-line sessions – just about to do the second one now. I found it so useful last week . It’s a slightly strange experience doing it alone in my front room but still lovely.”
“I value being able to choose the type of class I want to do. If I’m feeling exhausted and/or anxious, the restorative or less physically active class is great, otherwise I continue with the main class. “
“Thank you for all the work you’ve put into recording the online lessons,
it is a great help and I would be very sorry to have to miss the classes
for several months until lockdown can be eased.”
“Thanks. It’s really great having all this.”
“Thanks for this Rebecca. Just finished your mindfulness meditation as I was aware my BP was rocketing and needed to get grounded. Also enjoying Tara Brach- thanks for sharing.”
“Thanks for the online class – very useful.”
“I enjoyed my yoga session this morning and aim to continue to do one daily – I need to get my toes moving!”
“Many thanks for the classes, they’re great.”
“I really enjoy the audio classes and find them easy to follow. The demonstrations are useful and clear.”
“Thank you again for the wonderful on line classes. Despite not being as busy as usual, it’s still such a boost to stop for a while and have a class.”
“Some weeks I’ll complete a couple classes, other weeks I might only manage one. Having access to classes when I want/need them is great.”
“I don’t know what I would have done without your yoga classes – they have helped me to cope during difficult times. Thank you!”
“I have really enjoyed the audio classes, very clear and the little videos are really useful. I have valued the ability to do the classes at a time of my choosing – often between 7 and 8 in the morning. I am retired and so daytime suits me. Thanks for all of your effort in putting the audios together, I have found them lovely to use.”
