Virtual Studio

Welcome to the Orleans Yoga Virtual Studio!

We continue to offer live stream virtual classes for members of the Orleans Yoga community who feel most comfortable practicing at home. Class recordings are available for 24 hours.

Here's how to attend a virtual class:

1. Create a free Zoom account (which is how you will stream the live class). Then, install the Zoom software on your computer, tablet, or phone. We have found that a laptop computer works best for us, but other devices will work. We recommend that you set this account up in advance of your first class, and take a little time to get used to how it works. Also, you will need a strong wifi signal when streaming classes. 

2. Class schedule will be posted along with regular in-studio classes, it will just say "VIRTUAL" next to the class. Register for Virtual Studio classes on Mindbody just as you normally do using your existing membership, class card, or purchase your class at check-out. Please note that if you do not cancel your reservation within 4 hour of the class start time you will be charged.

3. Fifteen minutes prior to class start time you will receive an email from us with a link and the password allowing you to "join the meeting" and attend that class. Registration will close 15 minutes prior to class start time.

*If you do not receive this email 15 minutes prior to class start time, please check your spam/junk folder, sometimes these emails end up there.  If it is not there please email us at support@orleansyoga.com to let us know so we have time to get you the information you need to sign-in and attend the virtual class.

4. Starting 15 minutes prior to class you will be able to login and select "Join a Meeting" to join your class via zoom. 

5. Approximately one hour after the class you will recieve another email with the link to the recording of the class. The class will be available to you for 24 hours. This way you can finish the class if you have to leave for any reason, or if you want to take the class later at your convenience.

Virtual Studio Private Sessions

Orleans Yoga teachers are available for private yoga sessions via Zoom as well. Please email petra@orleansyoga.com with your prefered teacher and time, and we will proceed with scheduleing from there.

Tips for Zooming classes with ease:

  • Familiarize yourself with Zoom by holding "meetings" with friends and family.
  • Check out the Zoom Video Tutorials for more tips on how the platform functions.
  • Check your Orleans Yoga account information in Mindbody to make sure we have your correct and current email address on file.
  • To prevent our emails from going to your junk/spam folder, please add petra@orleansyoga.com and support@orleansyoga.com to your contacts. These are the two email accounts the Zoom meeting invite email will come from.
