You do not need to have the camera on, however for new people to the online sessions I recommend that you have the camera on for at least the first few sessions so that I can offer postural support if needed via email. If using the camera you will need to setup your computer and camera so that it can show your whole body sitting on a yoga mat. A side ways angle is usually the best. Please make sure you are not too far away and that there is adequate lighting.
Each session you will need the ZOOM meeting number.
We will use the one meeting number for the 6 sessions. Please plan to login 5-10mins before each class start time so as to prepare and allow space for any technical issues that may come up.
IF NEW TO THESE CLASSES DOWNLOAD FUZE
ZOOM is the platform that we connect to for these classes which is very easy to use and is free for participants. If this is your first time participating in these classes using ZOOM, please make sure you successfully download. By clicking on the meeting link your computer should automatically download the application software for you so just follow the prompts. It should only take a few minutes to do this and then once downloaded it will stay on your computer. The ZOOM meeting link for the live classes is posted in the Course Login page.
The Course dates and times are scheduled in Australian NSW AEDT times.
Please check your own time-zone by using the time converter
I recommend that if your schedule allows for you to attend the live sessions, then you commit to this. However if you are unable, the sessions will be recorded and available up to 7 days after each live session. These will be posted within 30mins of the live class on the Course Login page.
COVID-19 Policy Update - 28 March 2020
Notification about COVID-19/Coronavirus
The COVID-19 strain of coronavirus has caused an outbreak of respiratory infections in most nations of the world. On the 11th of March 2020, COVID-19 was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation. More information about what defines a pandemic, what this means and the COVID-19 virus can be found on the Australian Department of Health website.
Symptoms of COVID-19 infection
It is important that we are all aware of the symptoms of COVID-19 infection.
From the Australian Department of Health website:
“Patients may have fever, cough, runny nose, shortness of breath and other symptoms. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia with severe acute respiratory distress.”
The Australian Department of Health website contains more information on COVID-19, including statistics, symptoms and methods of avoiding spread of the infection.
Note that the symptoms of COVID-19/ Coronavirus are difficult to distinguish from a regular cold or flu.
Please call your doctor and seek their advice if you develop any of the symptoms listed above.
What COVID-19 means for us
This infection is present in our community of Melbourne and many parts of Victoria. How infectious COVID-19 is, how rapidly it will spread and how dangerous it is, are not currently completely understood. Many people are naturally concerned about the virus and their risk of catching it and developing the infection. Unfortunately, testing for the virus is very difficult at this time. Only a few pathology centres are able to offer the test, and they are currently overwhelmed by demand, causing prolonged and impractical delays in getting results. We are also entering the normal cold and flu season, and the recent drop in temperatures means that we are all far more likely to catch the regular viruses of the autumn and winter seasons.
The commitment of my clinic
With the latest Government health advice and recommendations from our insurer AON as well as ethical guidelines from the Esoteric Practitioners Association, which I belong to, I for now am no longer seeing clients ‘in person’. This will remain the case until such time that restrictions are lifted to the extent that I can resume my normal practice operations.
As such I will move all sessions online where I can; these will be held over Zoom, Face Time or Phone.
My commitment to you
I am keeping up-to-date with releases issued by the Australian Department of Health in relation to COVID-19.
I will continue to act according to the directions of the Australian Department of Health, our insurer AON and the Esoteric Pracititioners Association.
Please visit this page often, as I will be updating it regularly as new information comes to light.
Your understanding at this time is very much appreciated.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions at all or concerns that you wish to discuss.
Thank you . . .
