A virtual gathering is an important way to stay connected during this time of isolation. Below is everything you need to know about taking and paying for a virtual class.
How To Register For An Online Class
All online classes are offered on the Zoom video conference platform. If you’d like to join a live class, please set up your account there first.
All class times listed are in PST (California).
Find the class schedule by clicking on the image below.
A new window will open in your browser with the full calendar of classes. Click on the class you’d like to attend. It looks like this:
Register with your email; this is how you get confirmation that you’ve reserved a spot and links for both Zoom and payment.
You can also pay for class online by clicking on the image below.
Fifteen to thirty minutes before class you will be emailed the Zoom link.
**Make sure to check your promotions and spam folders if you don’t find the email.**
You can cancel your reservation up to 12 hours in advance, after which your account will be charged for the class.
How To Register Two People For The Same Class
You are more than welcome to attend an online class from the same device with another person; both attendees are required to pay for class, just like they would in an in-person studio environment.
*If COVID has caused financial hardship for you, please feel free to use one Zoom link for your whole household*
Paying Off The Same Punchcard
If one person owns a punch card and wants to pay for themselves and someone else, register twice for the same class under that person’s email.
Both classes will be paid for off of the punchcard or account of the person who registers. Only the email entered when reserving the spots will receive the confirmation and login codes.
The Online Classroom & How To Set Up
During a live Zoom class Paisley will sometimes do poses with you and sometimes watch you through the feed to check on you and give help if needed (unless you’ve selected to practice with your video off).
Before class begins, all participants will be audible. Feel free to arrive a little early to socialize and get set up, just like we would in person at a studio.
Once class begins, Paisley will switch the audio so students are muted but everyone can still hear her teaching.
Setting Up the Camera:
- set up with your computer or device facing the long side of your mat (as in image above)
- on a smart phone or tablet, use landscape orientation (device is lying on its side)
- if your whole body does not fit in the frame, choose your lower body and mat rather than your head
What Props to Bring:
- suggested basics: block, yoga belt and blanket or throw pillow
- Stretch & Restore classes use more props: a bolster (king sized pillows, a couple blankets folded into a long rectangle or a couch seat cushion are good substitutes), a couple throw pillows, a blanket or beach towel, a yoga block
