Online Workouts with Sonia
July 13 @ 6:15 pm - 7:15 pm
Pilates with Sonia
Each practice is designed to help you release stress and mental tension whilst rejuvenating your entire physical body. Co-ordinating each movement with a mindful breath and a clear intention will carve a path to restoring joint stability, muscular strength and functionality and releasing spinal pressure.
Step-by-step guidance is given throughout, including what NOT to do, so that you can have a piece of mind you are moving in the best possible way, even if you are a complete beginner.
Modifications and variations will be provided throughout the practice.
“It is my intention to have each one of my students feel not only more limber, perkier and taller after each practice, but to also have them be more conscious and aware of their body-mind in between the sessions, which is when the true practice takes place” … Sonia Palecek

How to join an Online Class
What do I need to join the session?
You can take a class using your laptop, phone, or tablet.
You will need the sound on your device and a good internet connection. If you know your wi-fi is a bit variable, consider a direct cable connection to your device.
Zoom is free for you to use. Once you register for the class you will be sent an email with an invite to join the session.
There are two ways to join the Zoom session:
If you will be using a computer or laptop you can join directly by clicking on the link from our invite and you will be taken straight into your session.
If you will be using a phone or tablet you will need to get the free Zoom app first and enter the 9-digit meeting ID from our invite.
Please update your Zoom to at least 5.0. version.
Class participation & set up:
Prepare your mat and props in advance and join the class a few minutes before the start time.
Set up the mat to be “parallel” to the laptop so that your teacher can see you in profile when you are lying on your back.
Ensure you have enough space around you to fully stretch out your arms and legs.
Please test your MIC & AUDIO before you enter the room and turn your volume up to clearly hear your teacher.
Use ‘Speaker view’ so that you can best see your teacher demonstrating.
You teacher will mute everyone once we start the session and ask you for a Thumbs Up/Down to check you are all OK and if anything needs to be explained again. Please wave if you have a question or comment, and your teacher will connect and speak directly to you.
If you drop-off during the call, just log in again. If something techie-weird is happening, just login again. Use the same link or Meeting ID as you did before. Once the class starts, we won’t be able to help with logins or techie challenges.
What do I need during the class?
You may not need all of these, especially if you already know your body, yet it might be helpful to have on hand:
1. Comfortable surface to work from: mat or a carpet
2. Multi-purpose strap: yoga strap, a tough elastic band, a large towel
3. Head support: folded towel, a cushion, or a book
4. Hip support for seated postures: Pilates block, yoga brick, or 1-2 books
