What's the difference b/w public classes + memberships?


  • We offer public classes 1x/wk. They are generally offered on a fixed schedule, rotating every month. Sleep Club is on the 1st Wed. @ 9 pm (ET), Trail Walk is on the 2nd Fri. @ 12 pm (ET), Sound Bath is on the 3rd Thurs. @ 3 pm (ET), and Silent Meditation is on the 4th Mon. @ 8 am (ET). Public classes are a great way to try out our surprisingly immersive nature sound experiences. You can buy 1 class at a time, or purchase our 12-class pack (good for 4 months) to explore how taking high quality personal time for yourself every week improves your wellbeing.
  • Deciding to bask in our soothing nature vibes on an ongoing basis is both very supportive and an epic choice for your life. As a member you'll dive deeper into the nuance of your personal wellbeing and self-care practices, while realizing new potentials for yourself in terms of your depth of relaxation, improved personal space, and greater connection with nature. Every week, get into your own rhythm with this while holding yourself accountable through our live (10x/week) and asynchronous classes (available 24/7 in our member library). You'll count on the consistency of coming to class regularly (like an exercise class) to reap the biggest rewards. Imagine what might be possible! Learn about memberships here.

Is oasis online kid-friendly?


Yes! We love kids so much. Kids are very connected to the natural world and listening to our live mixed nature sounds is a great way to help them build their unique relationship with it, while learning the important self-care skills (in their own way) that will serve them later in life. All unlimited, family plan members are welcome to bring your kids (through age 17) to your member classes with you, as our guests. oasis online is a fantastic way to create more calm before bedtime or enhance quality, quiet time during the day.




What is the class flow?


  1. 15 minutes before class — Doors open to the zoom.us conference room. Due to the immersive nature of the class, you won't be able to join after the start time. Arrive no later than 5 minutes before class starts. Savor this moment!
  2. Class start time — Doors to the zoom room are locked. Class begins with a brief orientation + quiet, opening reflections via a quick, anonymous questionnaire.
  3. Sound immersion — We'll do a technical sound check followed by a live, mixed nature sound inmmersion (25 minutes for public classes and our longer member classes) as you retreat into your respective worlds to soak up the supportive vibes and relax in any way you choose. There will be no direct instruction from us although we'll be available in the chat room if needed.
  4. Last 5 minutes of immersion — We'll slowly transition out of the immersion, quietly reflecting on our experience and next steps through a questionnaire.
  5. Final 15 minutes — A 15 minute class discussion follows for those who are interested during our public, sound bath class and all longer member classes.
  6. Next 3 days — Let your next 3 days be infused with the supportive, soothing vibes + lessons you received during class.




Why try oasis online ℠ now?


  • Stress is normal. In excess, it can weigh us down, building up in ways we don't realize. oasis online makes melting stress easier in a very short timeframe. Pause and take a moment to imagine how it would feel to release your stress. Breathe this in. Imagine if you could chip away at it within minutes.
  • When we release stress, we free up mental, emotional + creative space. Your potential for feeling better, accessing more peace, calm and clarity with greater capacity to enjoy life, is available to you within each and every class.
  • We're part of nature, and it's one of the best healing balms out there. Sometimes getting out into a more natural setting, like going on a hike, is just not available to us, say if we're living in a city, quarantined at home, or very short on time. But that doesn't mean it's any less important to access. Listening to nature sounds can be very soothing, and our oasis online immersive nature classes are extremely effective at delivering this to you in a nuanced, yet dynamic way.
  • Sometimes we need the structure of a class to force us to take time for ourselves, to encourage us to prioritize our self-care when the world around us seems full of endless demands.
  • You know the best way to take care of you. Each class can be experienced differently, depending on the day, your mood, what you need to get done. Regardless, we'll help you to carve out the quality personal time which will nourish you the most. You could dust off your sketchbook, meditate, stretch your body, simply enjoy a quiet moment to yourself amid the chaos. It's really up to you! We support you.
