Instructions for the Online Class
Minimum recommended donation € 5
via Paypal or alternatively by bank transfer.
ATTENTION: to be sure you receive the email with the instructions for accessing the class, you must register in time and not last minute!
A donation means that you pay according to your budget and what you believe represents the right exchange value for you. This may be less than the recommended amount or more.
When you have registered for the classes you will receive an email one day before for the morning classes and the same day for the evening classes with the Zoom link to participate.
If you have not been able to attend a class due to technical problems, write me an email with the date you were unable to attend and I will offer you another lesson on another date without repaying.
If it is the first time for you dancing 5Rhythms please let me know when you register and come online 30 minutes before the class starts so I can explain a bit.
Zoom is a platform that you can download for free.
To participate you need a good Internet connection and a PC or mobile phone with a camera.
Using a mobile phone or tablet limits some of the functions of the Zoom app, so a PC / laptop is the best option.

When asked: JOIN AUDIO CONFERENCE: click on the blue button to join.
When the window opens you are in the video meeting.
In the lower left corner there is an image of the microphone, please immediately put it in MUTE (if it isn’t already). Otherwise we all hear lots of noise!
This way no one else will hear you and you can make all the noise you want.
At the end when we have a sharing moment the co-host will turn on your microphone if you want to say something.
Immediately when you enter and during the class you can write in the “chat” located at the bottom of the screen. You can write to me, to the co-host, to everyone or to a person in private.
If you have difficulties of any kind, please write them there.
Next to the microphone icon there is a small arrow that allows you to choose where the audio comes from (SELECT A SPEAKER), which comes directly from the computer or from the speaker you have connected) – select SPEAKER that you have connected to, if it has been connected. If you only use your computer for audio, you don’t need to select anything.
Adjust the VOLUME CONTROL
If you don’t want to be seen, next to the microphone icon there is an image of a video camera, by selecting this you can delete or turn on your video.
If you do not have a good internet line, it is good to turn off the video in order to hear the music and my voice better.
I prefer that we leave the videos on to feel more connected as a group, so if it is possible please leave your video on. Thanks!
In the upper right corner you can choose the appearance of your screen. You have the option to see multiple people at the same time called: GALLERY VIEW or to see only two or three people at a time.
It is possible that sometimes there will be technical problems due to system overload. If for some reason I cannot take the class, I will offer you another class without asking for further payment.
SOME TIPS FOR OPTIMISING YOUR ONLINE EXPERIENCE:
- Better to connect to Zoom 15min before the start of the class, to check that everything is working
- Take some time before to prepare your space.
- Wear comfortable clothes.
- Better to be barefoot.
- Use a warm soft light if possible.
- Maybe light a candle or two or three …
- Prepare some water nearby to drink for you.
- Better if you have a blanket, or something else to cover yourself at the end.
Please, move in any way possible for you, standing, on the floor, lying on the sofa, sitting, listen to your body and its needs, there is no need for us to all to move in the same way, on the contrary!
This is a practice in which we discover the wisdom that resides within us. Each session for each person will be a unique journey and will have its medicine.
If sometimes looking at others on the screen helps you to feel connected with the group that is fine. However, I ask you not to stay too long to not disconnect from your own inner journey.
This is also why I ask you to arrive on time and to stay until the end. Even if you don’t dance, you stay connected to listening to the music, to my voice and to what is happening inside of you.
