How in the heck can you teach Pilates online? Well my friends, you would be surprised! We will be adding more details but, in a nutshell, … there will be a “live” class via Zoom at least twice a week. The live session can be found by logging into class, via canvas, and hitting the zoom link (which reads live Pilates workouts). This link can be found on the left-hand side of the page. I will also be recording the class. If you do not want to attend during the designated time or something prevents you from doing so, I will have the class posted in our canvas course. You can take the same class, at your convenience, anytime you would like. During a live zoom class, I will be the only one being recorded. No need to get out of your PJ's if that's how you would like to attend class! See you on the mat my friends.
Instructor Contact Expectations:
The best and fastest way to contact me is thru my cuesta email. I will generally respond to your emails within 24 hours during weekdays only. During busy times of the semester, the response time may increase to 48 hours. On weekends, we will do my best to get back to you ASAP but cannot guarantee an expeditious response.
