      Hi Liz. Sorry to hear that. The video that hosts the class sometimes takes a little while to load. So it could just be that – do you know if your internet is a bit slow at the moment? Try waiting for a minute to see if the video loads. If not, please email us at hello@pilateslive.co.uk and I’ll ask my helper (my husband 🙂 ) to explore what my be happening.
