Unlimited Access to Katy Bowman's Nutritious Movement Classes, Anytime, Anywhere.
If you enjoy breaking down movement into the hows and whys, and you’re looking for regular exercise, the Virtual Studio Membership is for you.
Our Virtual Studio Membership gives
- access to a 25-session “Alignment Foundations” library just for beginners
- over 60 Nutritious Movement classes on various body parts and topics taught by biomechanist Katy Bowman
- new classes each month
- the most movement for your money!
These are truly studio-style classes—with movement, jokes, questions, mistakes, traffic noise, Katy moving out of frame as she walks the classroom, and sometimes a crying baby. If you prefer more polished exercise videos, check out our in-depth courses or DVDs.
A monthly membership fee of $30 USD gives you full access to all of the classes. New classes are added monthly.

VSM Frequently Asked Questions!
How do I watch classes?
After logging in to your account on our website, you’ll enter the virtual studio. Videos stream on most devices. As long as you have a good internet connection, you can stream the videos on any connected device. Use your desktop, laptop, phone, or tablet. If you can easily watch a YouTube video, you can use your setup for our videos.
What equipment do I need for the classes?
We have an equipment set you can order here, but you can usually make do with things you have at home. The items used most often are a half foam roller (rolled towel), a yoga block (phone book), a bolster (sleeping bag or couch cushions) and a yoga strap (belt or scarf). Some classes use inflatable exercise balls. A 55cm ball should work for most people 5’6” and below, and a 65cm ball for those over 5’6”.
How is the class library organized?
We have 25 classes in our Alignment Foundations (aka Alignment Snack) series. Classes are also sorted into short (5–30 minutes), medium (31–60 minutes) and longer (61+ minutes) durations. Each class has a one-line description to help you choose which one you want to watch.
Is there any way to download these classes? I have to pay for my data and it’s expensive to stream.
No, these classes are all streaming-only. If you’d like to download classes, check out our downloadable products!
Is this suitable for all levels and all bodies?
Our approach is a whole-body one. While there are classes targeted for various body parts or skills, the idea is to strengthen your entire body over time. Most classes are gentle and suitable for various activity levels and ages, with options to make it more or less challenging depending on your abilities.
Movement is not inherently dangerous; however, every person is starting from a unique place. Consider our suggestions on reading before beginning classes and consult with your personal health care team about the suitability of these classes for you, personally. Statements made on this website or in classes are not meant to replace or negate medical advice, and no one should use them that way. We encourage you to make your own health care decisions based upon your own research and in partnership with your health professionals.
Can I cancel at any time?
Yes, and it’s easy to do so (you can do it once in your account). Give it a try and let us know what you think—but rest assured if you need to move on, we understand!
Is the monthly subscription based on a calendar month, or calculated from the date I enroll?
Your monthly membership starts the day you enroll and renews each month on the same date.
How many classes are added monthly?
Because Katy's travel schedule varies throughout the year, we can't guarantee the number of classes but on average it’s two per month.
I can’t play the sample class. What should I do?
Try switching to a new browser, or make sure that your current browser is fully updated.
Can I share my membership with my friend?
One person or household per membership, please!
What are the terms of the membership?
Virtual exercise class memberships are billed monthly using the credit card information you've provided. You can cancel any time. Each membership is for a single person/household. Please don't share your membership with others. Information given in classes may not be copied, recorded or redistributed without written permission.
What if I have a question about any of the exercises, or modifications, or contraindications?
Unfortunately, we are not able to assist with individual exercise instruction via email, but we’d love to refer you to our program graduates who do offer online one-on-one assistance.
