Online - How Does it Work
It is really easy to get started with my online classes. Just choose your class and get booked in. Then follow the instructions and sign up to Zoom.
1. Book a class or workshop through https://www.mamablossom.com/book-classes (Online
will be in the class description)
2. Create a Zoom account (this is free) https://zoom.us/
3. Choose a device with a camera/ webcam to use (bigger the screen the better)
4. Make sure you can access your Zoom account through the device, either by web or
downloading the App
5. A few days before Mama Blossom will send you a link and/ or a code and password to join.
6. Test your joining code before and check it takes you to the Mama Blossom waiting screen.
Live Online Classes - FAQ's
CAN YOU OR ANYBODY ELSE SEE OR HEAR ME AND/ OR MY BABY?
Only if you are happy to, it’s completely your choice, you are responsible for yourself and therefore don’t have to be seen.
Please be assured classes are kept small.
You have the option to turn your video and/or microphone off or on at any point.
Throughout most of class everyone’s microphone will be off to make sure there isn’t too much background noise.
WHAT IF I DON’T WANT TO BE ON CAMERA?
That’s absolutely fine. If you want the camera off for the entire class, please let Mama Blossom know before.
IS ANYTHING RECORDED?
Only if the class all agree, only the host (Mama Blossom) has the option to do this.
Rest assured Mama Blossom has set the security of classes on Zoom so that if they are recorded a prompt will come up on your screen.
The recording is set to just record the main speaker.
The recording can then be made available to you via a link (not downloadable) for a period of time to continue your practice at home.
WILL MY OR MY BABY’S IMAGE BE SAVED OR USED ANYWHERE?
No, as part of the T & C’s this can not be done unless express permission is gained from yourself.
IS THE STREAM SECURE? CAN ANYBODY ACCESS IT?
Zoom’s solution and security architecture provides end-to-end encryption and meeting access controls so data in transit cannot be intercepted.
In addition all Mama Blossom’s classes and workshops are set so that you are placed in a waiting screen, nobody is allowed in to the session unless they are admitted by the host (Mama Blossom). If Mama Blossom does not recognise the name in the waiting screen as the bookee will not be admitted.
DO I NEED A YOGA MAT?
No, you can do the class on the floor if you don’t have one.
DO I NEED ANY YOGA EXPERIENCE? I DON’T KNOW THE POSE NAMES…..
No, not at all. In class the yoga terms are not used either.
WHAT EQUIPMENT WILL I NEED?
For some classes a couple of cushions and/ or a blanket. For baby massage an oil or lotion for baby if possible (if not they can be massaged clothed).
IS MY INTERNET FAST ENOUGH?
Try a test meeting via Zoom or we can set up a trial with Mama Blossom
I DON’T KNOW HOW TO USE ZOOM!
You will be guided through how to join and the first session you will all be given some tips. If you would like to try it out before we can organise this.
CAN A COPY OF THE CLASS BE RECORDED AND SENT FOR ME TO USE AGAIN?
This is only possible if everyone in the group consents.
