Skype FaceTime Pilates Testimonial

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):

Hi Lynda

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,

Sincerely, 

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.

Hardware

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!

Software

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.

That's it!

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.

A More Personal Post - Update on Me!

A More Personal Post - Update on Me!

I was looking through this blog, and realized that I had not written much about me lately. And there is quite a bit happening with me here!

Looking for Expat Opportunities

The most exciting news right now is that I am actively seeking expat work opportunities out of the US. I spent six years out of the country when we worked and lived in Turks and Caicos (on Providenciales and then at Parrot Cay by COMO), moving back to NYC to support my dying parents. They passed in 2013.

Then we didn't really want to move Smiley, who was sick and old, and she passed at the beginning of 2016.

So, now it is just the two of us and our 30# Juniper. And after this presidential election, I am pretty sure that the US is not where I want to spend the rest of my life. If I do decide to stay here, I will most likely move to California.

I have always wanted to explore Asia, and to that end I had a Skype interview last night with a wellness resort on Koh Samui, Thailand. The interview went well, and I look forward to the next steps.

But, as I am also a believer in not overlooking anything, if you know of any opportunities in the Pacific or Indian Oceans (Thailand, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Bhutan, Australia, New Zealand), or CA, please let me know!

Got A Handle on Finances

Finances are tough for me. I hate tracking money, although when I do track money my life is much easier (go figure). After a crisis at the end of December, where we were just dead broke and in the hole, hubby and I have started tracking every penny, and it is working!

Ignoring problems doesn't help. And I have a tendency to just say yes to everything, because I want everyone to be happy. It never works out well.

So now we save receipts and do spreadsheets every week. Bills get paid on time and we know what we are spending. What a relief!

Launched New Six-Week Pilates Programs

In my push to move more of my business online, I launched two separate six-week Pilates programs - Bye Bye Back Pain and Restore Your Core Diastasis Repair. Both are doing well, with the participants feeling better each week.

We are halfway through this first round, with a new round starting next Monday 13 February.

More about Bye Bye Back Pain Program here.

More about Restore Your Core Diastasis Recti Program here.

I am Teaching More Pilates via Skype and Facetime

As I transition to more global thinking, I am focusing more on teaching remotely. There are lots of folks who would like to work with me, most cannot make it to NYC to see me (and now that I only teach 4 days a week it is increasingly difficult to get a studio hour with me), and many are Pilates teachers.

I really can effectively teach people via video - skype or facetime. I just need to be able to see you, which simply means finding a good spot for your device! One of my remote clients is an experienced Pilates teacher who lives in California, and he is seeing changes in his body and how the work feels, as well as learning some new exercises and cues, in just 4 sessions.

And right now I am offering Skype/Facetime sessions to Pilates teachers for only $80 or 5@$360, and to none-teachers for $90 or 5@$400. You really can't beat the price (since a regular private with me is $160) and you get all of the benefit of a great Pilates session.

I am growing to love remote teaching more and more! Contact me using form below to set up your Skype/Facetime sessions.

So, there you have it! My 2017 is, so far, working well. How about yours?
