Welcome to my online classes, which are live-streamed three times a week. Each class contains about forty minutes of exercise, including a warm-up and a cool-down. They are password-protected for security. If you don't know the password, please contact me for it beforehand, so you can access the class. I recommend you bring a mat or towel to lie on.
Just Cardio (Mondays) contains choreographed routines to get your heart and lungs working.
Stretch & Tone (Wednesdays) is all about flexibility, toning your muscles and stretching.
Flex & Cardio (Fridays) is a mixture of standing stretching & toning exercises and cardiovascular routines.
Sometimes we have a chat in small groups (on zoom) after the class; this is completely optional.
Sometimes, I include a short relaxation, or Qigong sequence (similar to Tai Chi), which is very simple and calming.
I reserve the right to change the content or type of any classes I teach at short notice.
Health & Safety
Participating in a live-streamed class is very different to participating in a class face-to-face with the instructor. Whilst both are fun, there is a bigger responsibility to you as the participant to ensure that you are following instructions to get a safe and effective workout.
As with all exercise programs, you are advised to consult with a medical practitioner/ GP before commencing any new fitness regime, and to stop immediately and seek medical advice if you experience any discomfort or pain.
Ensure the area around you is uncluttered and safe, with clear floor area, no low-hanging overhead lights or sharp edges of furniture.
Wear appropriate clothing for the activity. You don't need designer brands, just clothing you can easily move in.
All animals or children should be outside the exercise area.
Ensure your room is well-ventilated.
If you are feeling unwell at any time during the class, please stop immediately.
Ensure I have your up-to-date contact details, including address, and emergency contact phone numbers.
Doors open at 10:00AM, class starts at 10:05AM (London time). Please give yourself plenty of time to join the class.
To give you time to notice, and sort out, any possible tech problems your end, such as Windows/Zoom updates or your wi-fi playing up, I suggest you plug in and switch on your device well before each class, say 9:30AM.
Below are the Zoom links to the next online classes.
If there is a problem with the link and you can't get in, let me know as soon as you can, please.
Newcomers may be asked for the Zoom password on entering the class.
If you take part in the class, that denotes acceptance of my online disclaimer. By performing any fitness exercises, you are doing so at your own risk.
If you would like me to alter the days/ times I am teaching, or to run a different type of class, please let me know.
