ALL CLASSES MOVING ONLINE BEGINNING 3/14!

To our students:

We are moving WYC full schedule of classes are moving from in person at the school to virtual online starting March 14 until we feel it is responsible to continue at the school again. Tomorrow, Saturday, March 14 is our transition day. Some of you will be physically at the school and some of you will be online. Starting Sunday, March 15, we are solely virtual. 

Luckily we are able to maintain our usual schedule. The running schedule on our website will keep everyone up to date as to when we are hosting classes virtually and you are welcome to join just as you would for class at the school. Our class schedule can be found here: http://worldyogacenter.com/schedule/

You can join with a phone, tablet or computer. You will use this link each time you join us for class, which can be found at the top of every page on our website: https://zoom.us/j/2829767264

 

TO REGISTER FOR CLASS:
Show up 10-15 minutes ahead of time by logging in to the zoom link above, it will stay the same for each class. Attendance will be taken as usual. Class attendance closes definitely 5 minutes after the beginning of class-time. (This is the same protocol as we use at the school.) 

As we hope this will be temporary, and we want to change as little about this shift– if will be the same classses, at the same times, with our skilled and graceful faculty, with the pricing structure as usual. We hope you enjoy this continuity so we stay  connected even though virtual for the time being.

You can continue to use your membership, your 10 class cards, and to pay with your card on file. We will have an admin support staff that will be supporting the payment of classes so that you can join the class and you will receive a follow up email if we need you to identify how you would like to make payment (if it can't be handled before the class starts.)

 

If you do not have a current series at the WYC:
It is helpful to our staff if you take a few minute before class to purchase a class or series in our system.

JOINING ONLINE:
If you have used Zoom on your device, it's as easy as clicking our class link.
If you have never used Zoom before, it is quite easy to get set up.

 

SET UP:
If you will be on a computer that is using Zoom for the first time, give yourself 10 minutes before the meeting to click on the above link and to follow the prompts to download the software.

Troubleshooting:
Here is a demo that takes you through these steps: https://youtu.be/vFhAEoCF7jg
Here is a demo if you are having trouble with getting your audio or video working: https://youtu.be/HqncX7RE0wM

If on a phone or tablet that is using Zoom for the first time, you will need to download the Zoom app: search for ZOOM cloud Meetings and make sure the app icon looks like this:You will be on camera, so that the teacher can sense you and respond to the needs of the students. If for any reason you do not want to be on camera, it is possible to turn the video off on the bottom left hand corner of the screen, but this will mean the teacher is not able to speak to you personally. You will need to set your camera so you can be seen reclining, sitting or standing.

If you get stuck please email worldyogacenter@gmail.com for support or text 917-543-8538
