Distance Delivery Classes

If travelling to the regular class is a limitation, consider the "Distance Delivery" option - using internet video sharing technology, you can participate in the class in the comfort of your own home.

More than this, it is a two-way broadcast -- I will be able to see how you are doing your movements and can suggest how you can change. How will I do this? Using a new internet tool for video conferencing, you will be able to hear me and even see the other students in the class. Each student can position their computer so it shows how they are sitting.

Using your computer. First, download the software to your computer. The software is free from Zoom.us  (click to go to their website) and can be installed on most computers, smart phones or tablets/ipads. 

What you needInternet; portable device (e.g. laptop, tablet, smart phone) - with video feed.

Current Classes: Practitioner Brent Kisilevitch provides live video classes via the internet on Tuesdays and Thursdays! Broadcasting from Vernon, BC, the class has both online students and students in his clinic. Click for more information.

Whether you are concerned with plantar fasciitis, bunions, soreness, or some other foot malady, join us and learn to improve your moves.
