GOLD - UNLIMITED ACCESS & RECORDINGS UNTIL 1st APRIL
£25 x 5 weeks up to 1st April for unlimited classes (ALL zoom and outdoor sessions). This includes Tuesday 1-1 Tutorials (first come, first served booking) and access to zoom recordings to use whenever you want up to a week after the live class.
TWO FOR ONE
Nominate a friend and get two memberships at no extra cost (it's up to you whether you gift the membership or share the cost). You'll be able to meet your friend at our zoom classes and experience yoga together until 1st April (or, of course, attend separately). Just give my details to your friend and tell them to quote your name. I will only add them to the Gold Members list when they contact me and there is no commitment for them to continue afterwards.
Absolutely pressure and amazing value for you both!
TRIAL MEMBERSHIP - New Zoom Students
£5 for one week of unlimited classes (live zoom and recordings as above). No commitment or pressure. If you choose to become a Gold Member just pay whatever the balance is for remaining weeks after your trial week eg £20 for 4 weeks.
PAY AS YOU GO FOR INDIVIDUAL CLASSES
Individual classes are £5 each with a recording of the class you attend available on request.
Payment by bank transfer (email for details) or cheque - email me for details. Cash is accepted for outdoor classes if you don't do online banking (correct amount only please, in a plastic bag or envelope).
Zoom Sessions open 10 minutes before official start time to allow for setting up and chat. Presentation classes are taught without stopping and (within safety limits) participants are welcome to do their own thing without being observed or corrected.
Interactive classes are more personal and I may stop to watch the participants and offer individual corrections and adjustments. It is up to participants to choose whether they have their camera on or not. However, I recommend cameras on for interactive classes in order to get maximum benefit from the session.
