A Skype FaceTime Pilates Testimonial from Toronto Pilates Teacher Laura Lynn Harry
I love to teach Pilates, and love all of my Pilates clients for allowing me to teach them! I am especially enjoying connecting with new clients all over the place via Skype and FaceTime.
My biggest expanding client base for remote teaching is Pilates Teachers. I currently teach Pilates teachers in CA, Canada, and Long Island, and we are all having a great time!
Laura Lynn Harry’s Testimonial
Laura Lynn Harry owns Beach Pilates in Toronto, a BASI host studio. She teaches Pilates (both Stott and BASI certified), Barre, Spin, and TRX. Laura contacted me via this very website and we started working together last month.
We have done a mat session in her living room, as well as reformer and tower sessions at the studio.
Laura just sent me this FaceTime Pilates Testimonial (and encouraged me to share):
I just wanted to reach out to thank you & to let you know how much I’m loving our sessions over FaceTime!!
I would have NEVER believed it was possible to get a good Pilates session (let alone an AMAZING session!) by only having you see me from a camera on my laptop!!! BUT… it IS possible and each session has been absolutely fantastic… and my body is So happy 🙂
Your eyes see everything (again – I never would have believed it, with only my laptop… WHAT??!!! ) and I love that I can use any of my equipment to get in an amazing hour session with you… even though we’re in different countries. Who woulda thunk?!!!
I’m seriously considering trying to squeeze in 2 sessions a week with you — that’s how much I’m enjoying our sessions. *and I LOVE how I can hear your smile in your voice as I’m sweating and shaking – it’s reassuring to know how much joy you’re getting out of my torture.. LOL! (Seriously though, I know it’s because you truly love what you do…. it’s VERY evident and you are an inspirational teacher.)
See you soon Lynda,
Laura Lynn Harry
How to Set Up A Remote Pilates Session
Setting up a remote Pilates session is super easy! All you need are some basic hardware and software and a good streaming data connection.
You need a device with a video camera – laptop, tablet, or phone, and a place to set it up near your mat or apparatus. I have clients who use their iPhone, some an iPad or other tablet, and some a laptop.
The internal device microphone is fine! You can also use a bluetooth headset/microphone if you want to limit outside noise.
You don’t even need a tripod. I have clients who just prop their phone up on a shelf or pillow.
And if you don’t own apparatus or a studio, remote sessions are HALF the price of a studio session with me, so if you can rent studio space for an hour you will still make out well!
For software, either FaceTime, which works on any Mac or iOS device, or Skype, which is free and cross-platform.
Once we connect, I will tell you exactly where to position your device so I can best see you.
Benefits of Remote Pilates Training
There are so many benefits to remote Pilates training!
- You get to train with a master teacher without having to travel to NYC.
- You can train in the comfort of your home or studio.
- I can teach you from anywhere, even if I am traveling or away from home and studio.
- I am available via email and social media for any questions you have in between sessions.
What Is the Cost of Remote Pilates Sessions?
I like to keep the cost on these down to make remote Pilates sessions more accessible.
For Pilates professionals, a single 55-minute Skype/FaceTime Pilates session is $80, or 5 @ $360, payable via PayPal.
For everyone else, a single Pilates session is $90, or 5 @ $405, payable via PayPal.
