As we all continue to make lemonade out of lemons, we have been working like busy bees at Lead to provide you with options when it comes to keeping your body moving! Now more than ever, good movement, good posture and good diaphragmatic breathing are keys to staying healthy.
With that in mind, here is what we have for you starting tomorrow:
32 of our regularly scheduled classes (Mat Foundations, Beginner Mat, Intermediate Mat 1: Progressions, Intermediate Mat 2: Sculpt, Pilates Barre, Burn, Essentrics, Restorative Pilates, Block Therapy: Mini Intensive, Pilates Block, Block Therapy, Aging Backwards, Guy’s Class) will all be streamed live from our Studio to you at home using Zoom.
If you are not familiar with Zoom it is a cool online meeting and communication tool. You are going to need to download Zoom before your first class. If you are going to do your classes on your computer then go to zoom.us to get set up; if you are going to do your classes on your phone or tablet then you will need to go to the app store and download Zoom.
I want to note here that it is SUPER IMPORTANT to make sure that when you create your Zoom account that you use both your first and last name in your account set up. This is critical from our end as we need to manage who is in the class. If you only use your first name or a nickname in your profile, we cannot allow you access into the class because we will not be confident that we are checking the correct person in and do not want to withdraw a class from your package by mistake.
If you are a current member, have a contract with us or a Teaser Pack, you will literally book your classes like you have always done, either on your phone using the MINDBODY app, our MINDBODY Scheduler or our website. You will be able to easily see each At Home class as we have named them, for example, Essentrics – At Home or Restorative Pilates – At Home.
We anticipate that there will be waitlists for the At Home classes as we did put a limit on participants to ensure that our tech can handle the volume. If you are on the waitlist, it will work as it has before, if someone cancels out and you are signed up for text notifications, then you will get a text that a spot has opened up and you can accept that spot or not by replying to us. Otherwise you will get an email and you can reply to that.
One hour before your scheduled class you will be emailed the Zoom link to your class. You can click on the link up to 15 minutes before your class starts and you will be put into our waiting room. We will join you in the waiting room about 5 minutes before the start of class and we will ‘accept’ you into the class. Remember, as I mentioned above, if you only have your first name or a nickname in your Zoom profile, we will not allow access into the class.
Then, get ready to move with us!! We encourage you to invite your family join in on your class, if it is appropriate…..goodness sakes, we all know that everyone who lives under your roof needs to move!!
Your next steps are to download Zoom, and get onto our website to start to book your At Home classes!!
