Our newly launched virtual offerings, included in Unlimited Memberships, allow you to take your practice with you, wherever you are.
Anyone with an internet connection can participate, and getting set up is easy. We’ll walk you through it here, and you can always contact us with any questions.
Here’s what do do after you’ve purchased virtual access and registered for your first class, or scheduled your private, duet or triple virtual session with your instructor:
1. INSTALL ZOOM
When you sign up, contact the studio for a meeting ID and password. If you don’t have Zoom installed, you’ll be prompted to download and install it.
2. SET UP YOUR SPACE
Think about where in your home you want to participate from. You’ll need a bit of space to spread out, a good connection to the internet, and, perhaps, a nearby outlet to power the device you’ll be joining the class with. Of course you’ll want a mat for Pilates, and some water and a towel.
3. OPTIMIZE YOUR EXPERIENCE
Some things to think about for creating the best experience:
- Make sure your internet speed is sufficient (> 5 Mbs) where you plan to participate. You can test your internet by typing “speed test” into Google or going to speedtest.com.
- Use headphones if you can. The instructor and music will sound better, but it’s fine if you don’t.
- Use the largest screen that you can. You can use any internet-connected device (e.g., desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone), but of course the bigger the screen, the better. Many televisions these days are also internet-connected or can display the screen of another device.
- For classes, it’s important to position your camera properly if you care to receive personalized feedback on your form. Please ensure that the camera captures your whole mat and body during the class. We realize that having your camera on is a personal choice. We don’t require it, but being able to see you allows us to give a better experience.
