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 (see above).
Renewals will be due for everyone from 3rd July for the next three months.
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.
