THE HIGH PRICE OF FREE YOGA
We are often asked why we don’t offer free yoga as a way to check out the studio, and the truth is, that business model requires underpaying teachers and devalues our service to the community, neither of which we are willing to do. Our Soul Sister and Colorado School of Yoga founder Gina Caputo, who has owned three yoga studios, recently wrote a compelling argument against free yoga in affluent communities that you can read here (and we recommend it!). In order for us to support our fantastic teachers and to make a positive contribution to you and our community, we decided from day one to set our pricing in line with our neighboring studios, and at a level we felt was reasonable as locals, for locals.
However, we know life in the valley is subject to “elevation taxation,” and we are frequently asked “What’s the best deal for membership?” The answer: Annual Membership! An entire year of unlimited yoga at Mountain Soul is only $850. While many of you have already taken advantage of this, we know that price tag can look steep at first glance, so we did the math for you:
$850 Annual Membership = $70.83/month. That’s $28 in savings from our monthly autopay!
If you practice 3 X week, that’s only $5.44 per class!
So there you have it, locals! And whether you come for a class, a month or a year, we can’t wait to serve you.
