Iyengar yoga classes online & in person - sign in details

  • by Claire Ferry - May 07, 2020

Welcome to online and in-person yoga classes with registered Iyengar teachers Claire Ferry and Maura Gribbin, and Iyengar-trained Eva Komuves. I hope these instructions will help you join the classes easily. Do email me on or call 07743 841415 if you're stuck!

In person or online?

We've had to return to online ONLY during the lockdown. We hope to return to the mix of in-person and online later in the year.

Which class for me?

Tues 10am, Tues 6pm and Fri 10am beginners Iyengar yoga class with Claire

Tues 7.30pm and Thurs 6pm are mixed ability Iyengar yoga classes with Claire intended for ongoing practitioners - we may do inversions and I will give alternatives for those who are not yet at this stage in their practice.

Friday 7.15am with Eva - "core yoga" an active class

Friday 6pm with Maura mixed ability Iyengar yoga class

Pay and register for the class

You must register online to attend the class and access the online zoom broadcast. To register, you will need to purchase single or multi-class passes – we now have 10 and 6-class pass options as well as drop-in.

You can pay and register and click to view the online classes at our studio portal here. You can also do this via the classes page on our website.

Next to the class you want to attend there is a ‘sign up and pay’ link, or if you have class credits already it will just say ‘sign up’. Click on that and follow instructions, including agreeing to the health waiver. You can also go to the 'purchases' tab to buy multi-class passes.

If you change your mind and can no longer attend, this is where you also click the ‘deregister’ link.

NOTE if you register and then do not attend, you will forfeit a credit as it means someone else would not be able to take your remember to deregister if you can't attend.

Attending at home online

Go to the student portal again ( and about 10-15 minutes before the class a 'view broadcast' link will appear. Click this and it will open Zoom on your device.

Make sure you have a suitable tidy space with your mat and any other equipment at home. Scroll down for more details at end if you need them.

Make sure that you’ve told us about any health issues you may have – especially if you’re new to the class or we haven’t seen you for a while.

We look forward to seeing you,



Tula Software additional information if needed

You need to have an account at so that you can log in to your Tula account with Maitri Studio. If you already buy passes online with us, you will be familiar with this.

If not, you need to add your email and if you don’t think you have a password yet, click the ‘forgotten password’ link. You will be sent an email with your password. These are the details you will need to login, purchase passes, register for and take part in the class.

If you're an Apple user, you can download the Tula app

Attending at home - more detail


Some people using phones or tablets find it hard to either see the teacher (screen too small) or angle the camera lens so that the teacher can see them - so if you have a laptop it might be easier for you. But don't worry, we'll manage! Make sure you don't have any back ups or other apps running in the background which can make your internet connection slower.


You need to have downloaded Zoom onto the device you will be using to watch the class.

  • If you don't have a pre-existing Zoom user account, create one here:
  • If you do have a zoom account but who have forgotten your password, you can reset it by clicking "Forgot password" on the following page: as you will have to be signed in to Zoom for this all to work

Class preparations

Make sure you have sufficient space to practice and have any yoga equipment to hand. If you do not have blocks and bricks, use folded blankets or pillows. A strap of some kind is useful - if not a yoga belt, then a dressing gown belt, or a length of cord...whatever you have! A study chair may be helpful too. Test your video to check that I will be able to see you when you’re on your mat.

Attending the class

You will need to be logged on to Tula in the app or at the calendar pages (as above for registering). About 10-15 minutes before the class starts another link will appear ‘View Broadcast’. Click this, and Zoom will open automatically if you have it set up on your device. Follow the Zoom instructions. You will be let into a waiting room and we will need to admit you. We will not let anyone in after the start of class.

** If you are asked for a password, it is because Zoom needs you to log in. Some people have found it easier to go back out again, separately open Zoom and login to that, then go back to the Tula app or calendar and click 'view broadcast' again.

On entry into the class your mic will be on (unless you’ve turned it off!) so that the teacher can say hello and make sure you’re viewing and hearing OK. Once the class starts, the teacher will mute everyone - you can always unmute yourself if you need to ask a question.
