Facts & FAQs about Classes
Yoga Shanti is now open again for IN-PERSON classes at the studio, and we are also continuing to offer LIVESTREAM classes and some classes and workshops over ZOOM. In June 2020, we switched from our old scheduling system (Mindbody) to a new system, Union. If you think you have valid class credits in our old system, please complete this Transfer Request Form.

Studio Policy Relating to Covid
Proof of vaccination is required to practice in-person at the studio. Please bring this with you and present it during check-in before class. We will only need to see this once. The studio is currently operating at 35% with doors and windows open at all times. We also have supplementary air filters and the most updated filtration system. Please also bring your own mats and props to use during class. We have a selection of mats and props for sale in the boutique also.
Types of Attendance
In-Person Classes at the studio
In-person classes must be pre-registered online in advance through Union as we no longer accept drop-ins at the studio. We also have a 24hr cancellation policy for in-person classes. You can cancel yourself out of classes from your Registrations page in your Union account so long as it’s outside of the 24hr window. If you do not cancel and do not attend, you will lose your class credit.
Livestream classes (listed as “Streaming” on the schedule) can be attended live at the scheduled time and/or are also available to restream (so long as we had no technical issues) for 24 hours after the class ends via the Registrations page in your Union account. Tip: If you know you cannot attend the class at the scheduled time and are unsure if you will be able to take the class within 24 hours after it ends, then you may prefer to wait until the class is over and instead find it in our Replay library to play on-demand when you are ready.
Classes listed as Zoom Sessions must be attended at the scheduled time and these classes are not typically available for automatic restreaming. If you miss the class you will lose your credit.
We are building a library of many classes that you can choose to play on-demand when the time suits you. Please visit our Replay library to choose a class. Once purchased, Replays are available for 24hrs and can be accessed from your Registrations page.
Registering for Classes
You can sign up for classes either from the Schedule page on our website or directly via our page on Union. If you do not already have an account with Union you will be asked to create one during the registration process. (Note that you will need to purchase separate credits for In-Person vs Livestream classes as the passes are not interchangeable.) To log into your Union account at any time, visit union.fit (notice the domain is .fit and not .com). Here are some examples of how the various class types at Yoga Shanti will display on our schedule:
Often, a class will be available for more than one type of attendance. When you click the “Register” button to sign up for a class, you will be presented with the available options for attendance:
How to Attend Livestreams or Cancel Classes
Once you are logged into Union, you can access your upcoming class registrations by clicking the My Registrations link (A). Here, your upcoming classes will be listed in the order by which they are scheduled to occur. If the class is a Livestream or Zoom class a “Join” link (B) will appear shortly before the class is about to begin. Click this link to access the live class currently in session. To cancel an upcoming class, click the small down arrow (C) and click the “Cancel” (C) text that appears as a dropdown option. Click on PAST (D) to view a list of your past registrations, and to access the re-stream feature for Livestream classes you registered for, for 24hr hours after the class ends.
Usually the fastest way to get support with any problems you are having with your Union account is to contact their support team via the chat feature on the Union website. You can access this by clicking the speech bubble icon in the lower right corner of the Union website (see image below) or by clicking “Support” in the main menu and then “Chat“. Alternatively please email firstname.lastname@example.org, but be aware that we may not be able to respond immediately.
Frequently Asked Questions
What happens if I want to cancel a Livestream subscription?
You can cancel a subscription at any time from within your Union account. To do so, log into your account and click on ‘My Account” in the top right corner of the page, and then click “Passes“. Here you will see all of your valid passes and subscriptions. To cancel a subscription, simply click on the red trash can icon that appears next to the pass. Once you cancel, any remaining credits will still remain valid during your subscription period, which means you can cancel well in advance to avoid forgetting. (See images below.)
Can I attend ZOOM classes with the Dedicated Yogi or the Gold Livestream subscriptions?
Yes you can! Unlike the regular Livestream classes though, these must be attended at the scheduled time as they are not typically available for restream after the class ends. If you miss a Zoom class that you registered for, you will lose your credit.
I enjoy watching the Replays on demand. How can I tell which classes I’ve already taken?
Once logged into your Union account, click on “My Account” in the top right corner of the page and then click “Replay History” to see a list of Replays you have already watched on-demand.
