Big News for the Future of Harmony Yoga

This is a bittersweet announcement for me. My husband is retiring at the end of this school year, and we have decided to move to Colorado, possibly as early as mid-July, and probably no later than the end of August. What does this mean for the studio? “Harmony Yoga” will not continue, but there is the possibility that someone will be able to take over the lease.  If this happens, a new business will be created, and the other teachers you are familiar with (Iyengar Yoga teachers Pam, Susan, Marly, and the Feldenkrais teacher, Dale Jensen), will hopefully continue to offer...

At Harmony Yoga of Ann Arbor we offer a variety of options for people to take classes: Registering and paying for a multiple-week session Purchasing a class card Paying per class each time you attend Automatic monthly payment plan Sometimes these  choices can be confusing, so I will go over the policies and the reasoning behind each option. 1.Registering and paying for a multiple-week session This is our basic model.  You register for a specific class (or two) that meets at the same time each week for a certain number of weeks.  It is expected that you have chosen classes that fit your...

When Are Our Next Free Classes?

Posted by on Sep 27, 2015 in Classes | Comments Off on When Are Our Next Free Classes?

In my previous post, I explained why I only occasionally offer the first class free for new students.  In short, it’s because classes can be quite variable from week to week, and just one class isn’t necessarily a good indication of what is “typical” over the course of a few weeks or months. The most reliable time to try a representative class is during the first week of a session, and that’s when it makes sense for me to offer a free class for new students. Our next session begins during the week of October 26 – 31 and if you are new to Harmony Yoga and...

Why I No Longer Offer First Class Free

Some studios have the policy of offering the first class for free.   That hasn’t worked out well for me for various reasons, although I do offer discounted classes to new students (see our New Student Specials for more information.)

Partly it’s because I have found that people who expect the first class for free don’t value what they are getting.  Why would they?  A free class has no value or importance to most people beyond the one-time “work-out” or “stretching session”.     But people who...
