What can you expect from our virtual classes?
Live + Personalized
Our virtual group classes and personal private Pilates coaching sessions are done through Zoom.
Because our classes are live and personalized to YOU, that means we can offer you real feedback and you can ask questions. We can give you advice for making a movement more useful for your body, we can keep you safe by watching your form, and we can offer adjustments or modifications for a movement that are going to suit where you're at that day.
Our clients are our priority when we're teaching, so we tend not to teach by demonstrating the exercises for the whole class -- we're actually watching you and guiding you through your workout. This does mean that we recommend having your camera on if possible.
If you're feeling unsure about having your camera on, you may like checking out our FAQ: "I feel super awkward about having my camera on. Do I have to?"
How does all this work?
When you sign up for a class, you will receive an email from our booking program, Acuity, confirming your booking. The evening before or morning of your class, you will receive an email directly from firstname.lastname@example.org with the Zoom log-in information and details for your class (such as if you will need any props).
The first time you book yourself into a class, you will have to fill out the comprehensive health form and then confirm your class. On the confirmation page, you will see the option to create an account and save your information, after which you will be able to log into your account for booking in the future or to update your health information.
If you know you would like to attend all dates for a specific class for a scheduled period, you have the option to preregister for the class and pay ahead of time for a reduced rate. This means your spot is guaranteed, and you won't need to sign up each week. Any classes you miss due to sickness or emergency will be credited to use toward a make-up class. You can pre-register for your class through our online booking calendar up until the start of the new month, after which only drop-in bookings will be available.
Virtual Community Pilates Classes
We occasionally offer the opportunity for people to access our multilevel community Pilates classes with a "pay what you can afford" option, with all proceeds going to causes we care about: the Whitehorse Food Bank, Food Banks BC, our local animal shelters, or the Indian Residential School Survivors Society. Upon checkout, you choose what amount you would like to donate, with the option of attending entirely for free. No questions asked, no pressure, no judgement. We're just happy to have you.
As of May 2023, we are no longer taking international (non-Canadian) clients. We had a decrease in demand for access from outside Canada and reduced our insurance accordingly. We are open to reassessing this if we get enough interest, so please feel welcome to get in touch.
