Online Pilates - Streamed Live

Thursday 9:15am class 

Given the success of Zoom Pilates Classes, we continue to run a class online on Thursday mornings at 9:15am. 

Please complete the enquiry form below.

What do I need?

You will need an Exercise mat and a couple of hand towels.  Pilates mats tend to be slightly thicker than yoga mats to give more comfort but this is not essential.

A device that can connect to the internet - this could be a computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone.  You will need to download Zoom to connect to the class (see information below).

Find a quiet location in your house so you can focus on the class and on your movements.   Place your device on a stable surface close enough for you to be able to see it whilst exercising.

When & Cost?

Thursdays at 9:15am (1 hour class)

Please aim to join five to ten minutes before so you can get connected and settled.

Online classes run in 6 to 8 week blocks within school term times but you can start at any time with a free taster week.  

Each week costs £7 per person. 


What can I expect?

The Pilates exercises will include gentle stretches and strengthening exercises with suggestions as to how you can alter the position or difficulty level to suit you. 

If you have never joined a Pilates class online before don't fear. The technology should be straightforward and I'm on hand to help you if you have any problems.

When you join the online session,  please have your camera on so you can say hello.  Once the class starts, I will turn everyone's  audio feed off until the end of the class, your camera is up to you.  This way you can focus on the exercises, on your movement and on your breathing without distraction.


How can I join? 

Please contact me by using the enquiry box below or by emailing katie@pilatesforliving.co.uk

I will send you my Health & Registration Form to complete and return.  If you have any health concerns I am happy to discuss these with you before your first class.

You will receive a link and password by email inviting you to join the Zoom meeting.  

If you haven't used Zoom before you will need to download it to your device before your first class (see below).

Ten minutes before your class begins simply click on the link to enter the meeting and type in the password when prompted.

You should then be connected and ready to exercise!

What equipment do I need?

You will need an exercise mat and a couple of hand towels or pillow to use as a head support.

In our face to face classes we use all sorts of equipment, but to keep the online classes as accessible as possible, I will keep things simple!


Downloading and Installing Zoom 

I will be using Zoom video conferencing for all online Pilates classes. You will need to download this before your first class if you haven't used it before.
  • If you are using a computer you can click on the link sent in your introductory email and then follow the instructions.
  • If you are using a smartphone or tablet, please download the Zoom Cloud Meetings app beforehand. 
  • After you book your Pilates class you will receive an email with a link to the next class.
  • Ensure your computer, smartphone, or tablet is charged or plugged into a power source prior to the class starting. 

Technical Tips

If you are having trouble accessing  Zoom please try the following: 

  • Go to https://zoom.us  Select ‘Join a Meeting’ - Enter the meeting ID and Password from your Zoom email invitation when prompted.  
  • If you are using a PC or laptop, check if you have the most updated browser downloaded.  
  • If you are using WiFi, and if someone else is streaming videos or films, this might affect your Zoom experience.  
  • Place your laptop or device as close to the wireless router as possible or plug your computer directly into an ethernet cable rather than using WiFi.
