How to Charge for Zoom Yoga Classes – Set Up Payments in Minutes!

If you’re an online yoga instructor who uses Zoom to live-stream your classes, you might’ve found that accepting payments from your students is a bit of a challenge. 

Setting up a payment gateway can be time-consuming and a headache, but using Zoom’s built-in payment feature costs an arm and a leg. Neither situation is ideal for a small business owner. 

So, where does that leave you? 

Fortunately, there is an affordable, all-in-one solution that allows you to accept payments, manage access to your classes, and grow your online yoga business

Enter MemberSpace! Whether you’re teaching one-on-one sessions via Zoom or are live-streaming to a group of 50 students, MemberSpace can help you sell access to your Zoom yoga classes in just a few minutes.

Step 1: Set up your payment method

Accepting payments for your Zoom yoga classes is a straight-forward process with MemberSpace’s built-in Stripe integration, which allows you to get paid and securely take payments from your customers using all major credit cards, Apple Pay, and Google Pay.

Simply sign up for your MemberSpace account and click Connect your Stripe account. From there, you can either login to your existing account or create a new one for free.  If you don’t already have a Stripe account, it’s super easy to set one up.
As soon as you connect your Stripe account, you can start accepting payments for your Zoom yoga classes.

Step 2: Create a web page to promote your Zoom yoga class

Zoom Yoga Signup
Your Zoom yoga class signup page should include important details about your class and a clear call-to-action button.

Now that you’re ready to accept payments, you’ll want to create a page on your website to share about the details of your Zoom yoga sessions, including when it is, what will be covered, and how much it costs. Then, you’ll link the sign up button to a page with your Zoom link and meeting details (you’ll restrict the page in Step 4 so only paying students can access it). 

Step 3: Create another page for students to access the Zoom class 

Zoom yoga join class page
Add your Zoom class details, like Meeting ID and password, to a private page protected by MemberSpace.
When someone signs up for a class, this will be the page that they see. It should include instructions on how to join the Zoom class, like the Meeting ID and password. You can also link the “Join” button to your Zoom session, so they can automatically open it when it comes time for the class. In the next step, I’ll show you how to protect this page so only paying students can see it.

Step 4: Restrict access to the page with the Zoom link

When you add your Zoom class page to MemberSpace, only paying students will be able to access it.

Now, head to your new MemberSpace account and add the URL of the page you just created. This will ensure that only paying students can access it after they sign up for your class.  

Step 5: Add pricing and recurring plans

Just like a brick and mortar yoga studio, it can be a great idea to offer different options for your students to pay for your classes.  As you’re building your customer base, this will allow you to attract the most amount of people – those who are only interested in attending a single session and those who are ready to fully commit to your online studio on a regular basis.

Here are a few ways you can charge your students with MemberSpace: 
  • Pay-per-class model – Give students the option to pay for one class at a time. This is a great incentive for new students to see if they like your teaching style, as well as a good opportunity for anyone who is new to practicing yoga. 
  • Monthly or annual memberships – To give students unlimited access to your Zoom yoga classes, consider offering a membership plan. When someone signs up, they’ll be charged a recurring monthly or annual fee and can attend whenever they’d like.
  • Class packages – This is the middle ground option. If students don’t plan on attending regular sessions but know they plan to attend more than one in the near future, offering a class package is the way to go. This gives students access to a set number of sessions for a fixed price.
To set pricing for your Zoom yoga classes, you’ll go to your MemberSpace account and select how you want to accept payments, as well as how much you want to charge.

How much to charge for a Zoom yoga class

Now that you know your options for pricing, let’s talk about how much to actually charge for your Zoom yoga classes. Pricing strategy can be one of the most intimidating parts of teaching yoga online, especially because sessions can range anywhere from $5 to over $100. But with a little planning and experimenting, you can feel confident about what you’re asking students to pay!

When deciding how much to charge for online yoga classes via Zoom, there are a few factors to consider:

  • Your experience level as a yoga teacher – Are you a new or established teacher? Newer teachers may want to charge less or even offer free classes to build their clientele. Established teachers can charge more.
  • Class length – On average, a 60-minute group class might be around $10-15, a 75-minute class $15-20, and a 90-minute class $20-25. 
  • Private vs group classes – Private classes warrant a higher fee, while group classes can be lower since you are reaching multiple students.
  • Membership options – Offer discounted rates for class packages or monthly memberships to incentivize repeat business.
  • Market research – Check rates of other online yoga teachers with similar credentials to stay competitive.

✨ Business Tip: Having experience in a specialized type of yoga will allow you to charge more! For example, if you are a certified yoga instructor that helps students with anxiety, you’ll attract an audience willing to pay for your expertise.
