Don't kick the Couch !

Making the transition to online training can have its benefits and disadvantages. Set up your device so that we can see you; also the lighting is very important. Make sure that the room is illuminated so that we can see you. 

The Zoom app has a lot of features that you can control. The Audio and Visual can be switched off/on. Backgrounds can be changed and we can schedule private lessons which you will be able to book via Facebook. 

Classes are available to all students and we encourage you to attend more than one class per week; why not all the classes?  More the merrier. 

First online training. 72 students!

72 Students tuned in to train with Mr and Mrs Ellis on our first day.. 

The UK Government have locked down all non-essential business and service to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.

Our amazing students are staying at home self-isolating so that the NHS can cope with the increase of cases and have enough beds for the sick.

Calm and Confident
