How to get the most out of our Online Pilates Classes
Tip #1: Get the kit
In this video, Peta introduces some of the equipment you will benefit from while participating in our online Pilates classes.
If you haven't got a Pilates mat, it would be best to get one.
Tip #2: Make room
Make sure you have enough space in the area where you set up your Pilates mat.
Lie on your mat, on your back, and swing your arms and legs in a starfish shape. If you can do so without hitting any furniture, children, pets, or walls, then you have enough room for Pilates!
Tip #3: Set up your device
You need to position your phone, tablet, or laptop with the camera facing you, so that your instructor can see you while you work on your Pilates mat.
As a rule of thumb, try setting your device on a low table about 1 metre away from your mat.
Tip #4: Mute your microphone
After saying hello to your instructor and classmates, it's a good idea to mute your microphone (use the button in the bottom left of the Zoom meeting interface).
Zoom automatically detects the person speaking and displays them the screen. We want our instructor to be the one everyone's looking at, so help us by turning off your mic.
Tip #5: Warm up
Our online classes are only 30 minutes long. To help us make the most of the class and avoid injuries, do a gentle 3-minute warm-up before the class starts.
