Well done all of you who have been exercising regularly and maintaining your Pilates online training whilst in lockdown. Everyone has had their own challenges to overcome using technology to communicate with friends and family and adapted to still stay connected, motivated and moving. Give yourself a well earnt pat on the back.
Zoom – Update for improved security
There are now new security features built into Zoom. Would you please update to version 5.1 on all the devices that you use Zoom on. On a computer on the home page of Zoom – go to the top left Zoom icon and click, then click search for updates and then click update. On a mobile or tablet search on your internet browser for the Zoom Download Centre and it will take you straight to the correct update in your App Store. You can always delete the old version and reinstall the App to get the latest version. If you are not sure it is the updated version click on Settings (bottom right) and ‘About’ – the Version number will be at the top. The update itself only takes a minute. https://zoom.us/download
I will also be using a password which will be a number you have to add before you can get into the meeting. You will be taken into a ‘waiting room’ now for additional security. I will bring you in to the meeting from the ‘waiting room’. A waiting room is a place on Zoom which enable me to check you are one of my Pilates 24/7 participants before letting you in.

Pilates Party Sunday 10th May 7.30pm
Open to Everyone. This Sunday evening 10th May at 7.30pm I have set up a Zoom meeting to just get together have bit of fun and a social. It is a wear a hat party – optional of course. There will be a competition for the best hat and a prize of a loop band for the winner. I can post it to you. If you haven’t tried Zoom yet now could be the time to play and see how it works. Really do call me if you have trouble with getting it on your computer, phone or pc. If you can, use a computer or laptop to then be able to see everyone across the screen. You don’t have to have your camera on if you don’t want to. You can use your phone, but will only be able to see the person who is talking at the time, which is fine.
