Regarding payment for classes:
If you are unable to pay for classes, we will not turn you away. If you are in a difficult financial situation, please speak with Katie and an arrangement will be made for you to a) pay less b) donate at a later date. If necessary we will waive the class fees.
Whether you are not in a difficult financial situation, please not that our online class fees are significantly lower than our usual studio prices.
Unfortunately we cannot reduce or waive our charges any further. Although closed for now, we still have rent/insurance/software subscriptions/teachers salaries and other overheads to meet to ensure that there will still be a studio here for you when life recovers. In the mean time we will do our best to provide the best service possible to those of you tuning in online. See our online pricing packages below.
Inspire Studio is the number one Yoga and Pilates Studio in Jerusalem. All our classes are taught in English and we usually run a full schedule of 40 classes per week.
Unfortunately due to corona-virus we have had to temporarily close and move our studio online.
WE HOPE YOU WILL JOIN US FOR CLASSES ONLINE AS WE STAY HOME & GET THROUGH THIS TIME TOGETHER
We love what we do and our mission is to help you stay healthy in body and mind.
We understand that times are tough and that many of you are or will be unemployed or unable to work at this time. We are here to help keep you in good mental and physical shape to face the challenges ahead. Exercising and keeping a healthy mind and body are more important now than ever before.
Remember you can do the classes any time of day
(Bare in mind these times are local time in Israel - UK is 2 hours behind)
Is there a charge for classes?
You are welcome to join my classes without paying.
If you take part regularly and enjoy them, I would really appreciate you making a small donation towards my efforts
SO HOW DO I JOIN?
STEP 1: CHOOSE
Take a look at the schedule and see which classes you want to do. (See schedule above)
Bare in mind these classes are Israel time so UK is 2 hours behind.
STEP 2: SIGN UP
For the technologically challenged:
Text to tell me which classes you want to join so I can send you the zoom invites
Sign up on your own using our app
To book using a computer click here.
To book using your smart-phone, download the 'mind-body' app.
STEP 3: GET ZOOM
Make sure you have the app 'zoom' downloaded on your computer/phone.
Once your name is in the class list, we will email/whatsapp you a link to your class the night before. Livestream starts 10 minutes before class so click the link just before the lesson and meet us online! If you miss the live class we will send you a link to the recording so you can do it in your own time. (You don't need zoom for this)
DO I NEED SPORTS EQUIPMENT TO JOIN?
You do not need equipment to join our online lessons.
If you already have Pilates/ Yoga equipment, we will let you know when you can use it during online classses. Those of you who do not have equipment, please make sure you have a towel and a pillow for each lesson - these can be used to replace the regular equipment
What if something comes up & I miss the live-feed?
If you miss the live zoom class, don't worry. Just send me a text or whatsapp message to let us know and we I will send you a link to the class on youtube. You can then do the class later during the day.
Is it really ok to join for free without paying?
Yes it is ok. I want to do my bit to contribute to the larger community and so am offering my service as a yoga and pilates teacher in the hope that it will help you to feel better. The classes allow you to tune out from the news and the awful situation going on around us, and connect to your body and breath. Movement always makes us feel better and enhances both our mood and our immune system.
If you are enjoying my classes and are able to contribute financially, I would so appreciate it. I am giving my time, have invested in recording equipment (camera/mic/lights) and a lot of behind the scenes work takes place to make the online studio possible.
I usually charge the equivalent of 12GBP per lesson at my studio and am used to teaching big group classes several times a day - the corona virus outbreak has meant me having to close the studio but still cover my usual overheads so there is great financial pressure. If you want to donate it would be wonderful and greatly appreciated but no pressure for those who can't.
