LIVE STREAMED CLASS:
STARTING WEEK BEGINNING 20.04.20
6.00 to 7.00pm
There are three price options £1, £5 and £10 in the hope at this challenging time yoga is still accessible to you.
We offer these live streamed classes as a way of creating community, continuing our teacher/student contact and helping to ground and calm our students at this uncertain time. We also offer them as a way of generating some income to our not for profit in the hope that we can pop out the other side of this crisis still afloat. We realise we are all in the same boat and the price options here are therefore discretionary but we ask that you pay what you can afford.
Once you have paid via Paypal you will see a thank you message on our webpage and will receive a PayPal confirmation email. Thirty minutes before the start of your class you will then receive the zoom link via your Paypal email address. If you don’t receive the link fifteen minutes before your class please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know and we can make sure you are booked in. Please try to arrive five minutes before the start of the class and come to say hello.
Please note if you book less than 30 minutes before the start of the class you may not receive the zoom link in time. In this case you can be transferred to another class or to the same class in the next week.
