Become an Online Teacher. Enroll in our FREE Email Course:
Whether you are looking to match the income you’re currently bringing in from your teacher training program, convert drop-in students to monthly members, or retain your existing client base by offering at-home options, an online studio is a smart business decision.
Quickly upload multiple types of media including video, audio, and PDF files directly into Namastream. Enhance your teaching with the ability to deliver your content in the most effective format.
Build a course where the content is scheduled or “dripped” to your students over time, create a membership and receive recurring revenue or, keep it simple, and bundle a number of videos (or audios or docs) together and sell them as a product. Or why not do one of each! The number of ways you can craft your offerings is only limited by your imagination.
Grow your business as big as you’d like, and we’ll be there cheering you on every step of the way! There are no limits to the number of courses you create or clients you attract.
Start teaching TODAY with our new live-streaming feature! Bundle videos, PDFs, and live-streaming events into your various products or memberships. With live-streaming, you don’t have to spend time recording, editing, and uploading a video prior to making a sale. You just need a webcam and to hit the ‘Go Live’ button to teach or train your clients in real time.
Easily accept payments for your online products or memberships from anyone in the world. Your students click the “buy” button and you’ll see the money appear in your bank account. You have the choice between Stripe or Paypal as your payment processor.
Get a snapshot of your business from your dashboard and celebrate each month as your numbers grow. Your dashboard displays your monthly sales, customers, video views and much more. And if you want to dive deeper into your numbers, view the detail reports on customer activity and sales.
Namastream talks to Mailchimp and Convertkit and that means that all your Namastream students’ emails are automatically added to the right list or given the right tag(s). Nice and tidy!
If you already have a website, you can simply create a button on your website and add a hyperlink from that button to your Namastream login page (or you could put the link in your menu or header). Once your students arrive at your login page, they can peruse your products, watch your welcome video, and create a free account (which will allow them to access any of your free content and/or purchase your available classes and training packages). If you’re technically savvy, you can choose to map your Namastream site to a custom domain that you’ve purchased outside of Namastream.
Yes! You can create daily, monthly, weekly, or annual memberships inside of Namastream. Your students can sign up for the membership and we’ll make sure your students are automatically billed accordingly.
Yes! You can bundle or package your content in any way you’d like! Combine your video, audio, and document files, plus any live-streaming sessions in any way you can imagine. You could create a beginner yoga product with ten instructional videos and two audio meditations. Or you could package three healthy cooking videos with three private live-streaming sessions or do a twenty audio file package. Anything is possible!
You choose your own pricing structure and your students will purchase your products inside of your site, where they will be able to securely enter their credit card information. You will choose to integrate with either a PayPal Business or a Stripe account, and the money will be deposited through your chosen payment processor into your bank account. We do not share in your revenue (at all) and there is no delay in receiving your funds. (Stripe and PayPal do both charge a processing fee of approximately 2.9% + $.30 per transaction.)
You can live-stream private client sessions, broadcast your classes, or host collaborative group sessions with our new live-streaming feature.
How will the participants appear on screen?
If there are two people live-streaming, the screen will be divided into two (side by side). If there are four people live-streaming, the screen will be divided into four, etc.
1-on-1 Private Sessions.
This is just like it sounds: you and one client having a private lesson. Half the screen will be you and the other half will be your client.
Collaborative Group Sessions.
You can create a live-stream for a group of students, where they can see and talk to each other. This works well for yoga teacher training, continuing education, or other group work where you want your participants to interact with one another. The maximum number of people for this feature is 25 (including you).
You can also create a ‘broadcast.’ In this scenario, you can teach to an unlimited number of students. They can all see you (of course!) but you cannot see them and they cannot see each other. This is much like Facebook Live (or even television).
For all of the above situations, you have the choice to record the session, and if you do, the recording will appear in your students’ sites (but only the student(s) that registered for that particular session). Your live-streams can become additional videos in your site with the click of a button.
Yes! Namastream has a customizable homepage that can function as your basic website. You can upload your logo and a cover photo, select your brand color, add your “About” section, add a welcome video, and pull in a mosiac of your live Instagram feed. If you need just a basic website (with no blogging function), this is all you need!
Yes, you can create a course with multiple lessons and a drip schedule for your students.
First, you set the start and end date of the entire course and the you decide if each lesson appears after a certain time period or only after the student completes the previous lesson.
You can also add multiple media files (video, audio, pdf) and live-streaming sessions within each lesson.
Yes, whatever content (video, audio, PDF files) you upload to Namastream, is yours. Just make sure you keep your own copies of your files.
Namastream has given me the freedom to be creative and reach students that would not be able to take a live class with me. I travel quite a bit and it is easy to record a class, edit it and then upload in the same day…from anywhere in the world! Namastream’s user support is wonderful and reacts quickly to my questions and concerns. It has opened up my customer base and invigorated my teaching! I cannot say enough great things about it!”
“Namastream has provided a great professional and user-friendly platform with excellent support throughout my exploration of online teaching. I can’t say enough about how the folks here have helped teachers like me share our unique teachings with our global community. Namasteam has helped me with my goal to help shrink the world by bringing so many of us together.”
