Since the pandemic hit, virtual classes have become an essential and helpful way to stay connected & engaged. And though in-person classes have resumed, virtual classes will remain an option for people who feel safer at home, live far away, or in quarantine.

Here are some things to know about Mist virtual classes:

  •  All virtual classes are live. This means the instructor is teaching in real time and interacts with both the home & in-person participants 

  • It is required that you sign up for classes at least 90 minutes before start time or you may not be added in to class.  

  • You must sign up for class through the Mist website or Mist on the MINDBODY app in order to be added to the virtual classes 

  • There are some classes that do not provide the virtual option but most do. You will notice this when registering for classes.  

  • For shy people: you can choose to keep your camera off so you can see the instructor and no one can see you.  This is helpful for those who want to try new classes or train with privacy.  

  • Remember when joining in virtually, everyone in the class hears everything going on in your house, it’s best to mute yourself when joining in.
