Can I invite a guest instructor to teach?

Yes! You can add an instructor via Instructor networks or via our studio plans.

Do I have to host my class on Zoom?

No you can host your classes wherever you'd like! If you prefer to teach on another platform, copy + paste the hosting link.

Can I host classes in-person?

Sure! Just type in the location and we'll send over directions for your student. If you prefer to keep the exact location private, you can input the region and state.

Can I make classes re-occurring? / Can I add multiple classes at once?

Yes! You can schedule as many classes as you'd like in advance. Tap on "weekly" from the drop-down. Please note booking windows for class open up 30 days in advance and Zoom limits 100 classes added per day.

Can I have a maximum capacity?

Yes! Update your max capacity and we'll make sure your classes do not overbook. Once a class books up the Sign-Up button will switch to waitlisted.

Can I make my classes sliding-scale?

Sure! Under Payment details. Update your classes to donation based. From there you can pick a minimum requirement and a suggested price.

What happens if I edit my zoom settings after adding a class?

When you add a class it creates the link with your current Zoom settings. If you update your Zoom settings, after adding a class you must erase all future classes and re-schedule them.

Help! Why is my drop-in rate appear twice at checkout?

This is because you've added the drop-in rate both on the class and you have built a single class package. Either remove the single class package or make the drop-in class "package and subscription only".
