Switching To Teaching Online Classes Overnight
“When the pandemic hit, I wasn’t able to teach in person. I had been teaching five yoga classes a week,” says Amanda Warner of Amanda K. Fitness. “I thought it was temporary, so I was looking at how to teach online for a while. I tried Facebook and Instagram Live. Then I realized unless I was ready to throw in the towel on yoga, I needed to teach online.”
Warner says she needed a website, Zoom or another streaming video conferencing service, a way to process credit card payments, and some way of keeping records of payments. She found Yottled through word of mouth, and it saved her a lot of anxiety.
“My favorite feature is how easy it is to accept payments integrated with Stripe,” Warner says. “I don’t have to think about payments. Before I was anxious a lot, figuring out how to take payments, fees, and do record keeping. With Yottled, I have direct deposit through Stripe.”
Yottled’s Use Case for Online Classes
Warner says she is still teaching four to five classes per week, but since she has a baby she’s not available 24/7. “I’m excited to record a class and people can take it whenever they want,” she says of an upcoming feature on the Yottled platform.
Will she stick with online teaching or go back to in person as soon as possible? “It’s been really great,” Warner says. “Now that stuff is moving back to in person, I’m looking forward to some aspects but love the idea of teaching remotely more.”
