17
Jul

You can now book do family bookings for Zoom classes. This works if your family shares the same email address. Any family member that uses their own email address will have to book Zoom classes as an induvial. The booking email will now list all the family members and the days they have signed up for.

Thank you to Jen for giving Sensei the idea for this improvement.

This video shows you how easy it is to make a family booking.

Matariki 2021

02
Jul
2021

Matariki is the Maori name for the small cluster of stars also known as the Pleiades or the Seven Sisters, in the Taurus constellation.

In New Zealand it comes into view low on the north-eastern horizon, appearing in the tail of the Milky Way in the last days of May or in early June, just before dawn.

This heralds the Maori New Year. To celebrate I will be training on the beach at Scorching Bay before sunrise (about 6am).
