Technology

To participate in a remote sessions, you will need a device with a microphone and a video camera, and good internet connection.

Our preferred platform for remote sessions is Zoom (www.zoom.us). You can create a free account and their software is reliable and compatible with all major devices and operating systems. If you prefer using another platform (FaceTime/Skype/WhatsApp/etc) you can coordinate directly with your teacher.

Zoom Guide:

  1. Go to www.zoom.us and set up a free account
  2. Download and install the zoom software on your preferred device (desktop/mobile)
  3. Once you’ve scheduled your private session, your teacher will send you an invitation for a Zoom meeting. At the time of the session, click on the link in the email to join the meeting. The zoom software/app will load automatically and you will join the meeting.
  4. To start your video, click on the Start Video button at the bottom left side of the Zoom screen.

Getting Ready for your VirtuaLogicTM Remote Session

Here are some tips to prepare and set up for your remote session:

  • For Pilates sessions, a thicker mat is recommended since there is a lot of spinal articulation that won’t feel great on a thin yoga mat. We like this mat. If you’re using a yoga mat, consider placing it over a carpet, rug or a blanket.
  • Choose a spot for your mat where there is room to stretch your arms in all directions, and a strong WiFi/data signal.
  • Light: more! ; surrounding noise: less…
  • Place your camera about 12 feet away from your mat. Most of your session will be done either lying down or in kneeling height, so try to make sure the frame catches that view so the teacher can see you properly.
  • Props: if you have any props your instructor can incorporate them for a more varied session. We recommend a 36″ foam roller (such as this) and a theraband – both are great for independent use as well. For specific recommendations, ask your teacher.
