Teachers can offer different live-class formats on Strydal: Live-streams and Live-Coachings. The class format is clearly identified on the class detail page (you can access it by clicking the class on the Schedule).
Live-Coachings: The teacher uploads a pre-recorded class to Strydal and plays it during the live class, in order to have more time to coach and adjust the students individually. This type of class is perfect if you want to deepen your practice, learn new skills and make sure you are doing the asanas/exercises the right way.
Live-Streams: Is a live-class where teacher performs Live in front of the camera and practice together with you and other clients.
Every class has a credit price - you can either book only this class (pay-per-class) or use pre-loaded credits on your Strydal account. If you do not have (enough) credits on your account you will get automatically referred to our checkout page to buy new credits. You can only buy new credits on the web (it is not possible through the iOS App).
In order to join a class you need to book the class in advance. After you booked your class, you will find your upcoming classes in your calendar. 15 minutes before the class starts, you can join the live-class - so you will have enough time to get ready.
The credit system is a way for you as a students to book classes from your favorite teacher on Strydal. 1 credit is roughly 1€ - depending on if you pre-load your account with credits or just 'pay-per-class'. If you pre-load your account with more credits, you will get a discount.
