How to join a class
Using CowTinker to join a class
For the Spring Session (Mar 29 - Jun 27), all Circle Yoga classes will be held virtually through Zoom and can be accessed through our CowTinker platform. Before you begin, please be sure to use a web browser other than Safari. If you are using Firefox or Chrome, you are all set. Learn more.
Step 1. Know your password
Knowing your CowTinker password is the key to being able to access your Circle Yoga classes. If you had an account in our old system, please follow this link to set your password in the new system. If you are new to Circle Yoga and CowTinker, please create a new account. If you have trouble setting or need to reset your password, follow these instructions.
Step 2. Purchase classes
Students may register for 1, 2, or more livestream classes (Zoom) per week, and fees are prorated based on when you sign up during the course of the session. Students registered for 2 or more classes also have full access to our on-demand video library. Follow this link to purchase a registration, 3 for $33 offer for new students, 4 Class Pass, or a Single Drop-in class. Learn more about fees and registration.
Step 3. Select your classes
Visit the class schedule page to sign up for classes. If you are ready to join a class now, click on the small green camera icon (see arrow #3 below) next to the class you want. This takes you right into class.
To sign up for a class in advance, click on the RESERVE button (see arrow #1 below). This will add your name to the roster, and you will receive a confirmation email with a link to use to join your class. You will also receive a reminder email about 30 minutes before class begins. Even if you sign up in advance, you can always access your class by clicking on the green camera icon on the schedule page. You don't need to keep up with an email link!
Step 4. Log in for your class
When it's about time for class to start, from the class schedule page, click on the green camera icon (see arrow #3 above) that appears next to the class you want to take. If you reserved your class in advance, you can choose to follow the link from your email confirmation or click on the green camera icon. Regardless of which way you enter the class, CowTinker will require you to be logged into the system.
Step 5. Get ready for class
At about 7 minutes before the scheduled class time, the Zoom meeting will begin. You may need to refresh your screen. All browsers have a refresh button—it usually looks like a circular arrow. If you don’t see the icon to refresh, use these keyboard shortcuts:
- on a PC, press “F” and “5”
- on a Mac, press “Command” and “R”
