How do I get on?Zoom Cloud Meetings is a free app available on the app store for Apple and Android phones. On a desktop or laptop it can be downloaded from Zoom.us
The meeting ID and Password is quoted on the bottom of the timetable.
How long before a class can I join?We are limited in time to 40min max on the Zoom app. Classes are strictly 30min and the area/equipment needs to be cleaned and prepared for the next instructor. Therefore, classes are only open 2min prior the commencement of the class. This allows for a little chat after class and the changeover of instructors.
I was a late to class why can’t I join?You will only be admitted to the class within the first 5 minute warm up, after that we cannot admit you. This is in line with our health and safety policy for live classes.
What’s going on with the sound? I can hardly hear.As we are not set up as a professional zoom studio, the sound quality can be compromised. The instructors try their best to get the best sound possible. Sound can be adjusted from your end. Try that first. Sometimes it is unstable internet affecting the quality. Participants should mute themselves unless conversing.
Why did the connection drop out?Unfortunately this can happen from time to time. I could be from our end or yours and can happen with external interference. We know it can be frustrating, but this is not an excuse to quit and have a cup of tea! Keep moving! Try to attempt to get back on and we will try to accommodate.

Concentration is needed to learn new habits. "It is the mind itself which controls the body."
Thoracic breathing (breathing into the upper back and armpits) is
important to maximise abdominal control and to mobilize the ribcage and spine.
The centre is described as the space between your ribs and your hips at the back, the front and the sides of the torso.
If the deep abdominal muscles are strong there is less load on the lower back. A strong centre is important to maintain good control and balance as a whole.
Without concentration and control, the bodies' stronger muscles will tend to do all the work (and stay strong).
The weaker muscles tend to remain relatively unused and remain weak. It is control over the weaker parts of the body that
Once there is better control over the weaker muscle groups, more control over those muscles can be obtained and increased isolation of these muscles can be obtained to gain strength.
