Subject: Hi Friend! It's The Studio Yoga! (November News)

"Acknowledging abundance (aparigraha) we recognize the blessings in everything and gain insights into the purpose for our worldly existence." 
 - Sutra 2.39 translation by Nischala Joy Devi, The Secret Power of Yoga
NOVEMBER @ THE STUDIO

Greetings Friend!

November is traditionally a month filled with both thanks + giving; a time for reflection over the past year. A chance to be introspective, and to set intentions for the new year. 

At The Studio Yoga, we have so many things to be grateful for... The peaceful practice space, our passionate, skillful instructors, and of course our caring and connected yoga community!

We also see it as an opportunity to share our many blessings with family, friends, and strangers. We're glad you're here with us, whether you're new to our space or have been here from the beginning. 

So this month, we're pleased to offer opportunities to share in the "Thanksgiving Spirit" as a community ALL month long.
A few of the highlights include:

  • Gratitude Graffiti Wall - express yourself in the studio!
  • 21 Days Of Gratitude - starts Nov 5th
  • Santa Claus Girls of Kent County - Karma offering of the month
  • FREE classes to Veterans on Veterans Day, Nov 11th
Read on for details of how you can be involved. Be sure to check out our special events this month, new pricing options, and our holiday schedule for the end of the year.

In Love + Light,

Jennephyr and Jared

FRIDAY NIGHT YIN
 
- Friday November 20th @ 6pm


Every Third Friday of the month, we offer a quiet YIN YOGA practice suitable for students of all levels and experience. Yin yoga improves the flow of qi (or 'chi' - life force energy) for better organ health, immunity and emotional well-being.

Through the practice of long-held passive postures, yin takes you deep into the connective tissue of the low back, hips and hamstrings.

The practice of yin invites you to slow down, creating space for stillness while nourishing joints, ligaments, tendons and fascia.

The entrance fee for this special class is $20;
$15 with 90-day and 1 Year Unlimited package

STUDIO UPDATES
NEW PRICING OPTIONS

Hi Friend, Jared here. :-)

We've had quite a lot of new people come in over the past couple of months, and we're happy that you've all joined us!

YES!!! My clever plan to take over the internet is working!! MUWAHAHAHA!!!

...

...

Well, not really. :P

But with our new offers from Groupon and LivingSocial...
along with our profiles on Angie's List, Google, and Bing...
and a bunch of other sites across the interwebs...

We've been getting a lot more attention as of late.

Like a mentor of mine once told me, "The best kept secret is the WORST secret to have."

If Jennephyr, our Instructors, and I can help more people find some peace and well-being by making The Studio a little less secret? That is, as Martha Stewart says - "a good thing."

The next step is to make it easier for everyone to continue practicing with us.

Soooo... In an effort to simplify your choices at The Studio Yoga, we're offering you two NEW FLEXIBLE AUTO-PAY Options.

No Contract.
No Class Cards.
No Hassles.

Each month, you'll get a set number of passes to use for any of our regularly scheduled classes.

1 X A WEEK - $45 A MONTH (5 classes total) - If you're currently coming to one class per week, this is the option for you! Each month, MindBody charges $45 (that's ~$9/class) on Auto-pay. You get 5 classes to use throughout the month. Each additional class after the first 5 is only $10

2 X A WEEK for $69 A MONTH (9 classes total) - If you're a more frequent flyer, this option may make sense for you. This option gives you 9 classes a month (that's $7.67/class!)
PLUS you get one free gift pass a month to share with a friend! *

There's a few other points you need to know before you get started with the 1X a Week or 2X a Week options:

First? You'll need to add a credit or debit card to your MindBody Profile Information if you haven't done so already.

Once that's done? MindBody stores it on their super-secure Website of Client-Protecting Fortress of Internet Zen and Solitude-i-ness. Your information remains secure through a combination of encryption, secure servers, and what I assume is a well-supplied cadre of armed guards and ninja capoeira monkeys.

Probably trained attack spiders as well.

Suffice it to say that your information is secure.

Your 5-9 classes need to be used during the month that they're issued. Unfortunately due to system constraints, classes do not carry over.

The good news is, with 20-some-odd classes a week, you'll have plenty of opportunity to come in and relax.

Also since MindBody is running this system, we'll need 30-days notice to downgrade or cancel your auto-pay. To make it easier for you, simply call or email us if something comes up, you wish to cancel, or you need to take a break.

Likewise, if you want to attend MORE classes, let us know! You can upgrade from 5 classes a month to 9 (or even get on the Unlimited Membership) at any time.

For the 2 X A Week Members - If you bring in a Guest, they MUST complete our registration form BEFORE taking their first class. They can do so online or on our normal paper form at The Studio... They only have to do so once. Otherwise our Insurance Guy shoots a disappointing gaze at Jennephyr, clucks and shakes his head at her. This is very no bueno.

That's all there is to it!

If you'd like to get started with the 1 X Option? <<CLICK HERE>>

If you feel that 2 Classes a week is better for you >>CLICK HERE<<

For everyone else?

We'll still have both the class packs and Unlimited Memberships available... And boy, does the 1-Year Unlimited come with a LOT of perks and special savings. ;-)

We recognize that it's a big commitment, though.

With these new pricing options, we think it's another way that Jennephyr and I can help make it simpler for you to start a beneficial habit that provides lifelong benefits... Both for you and the people around you.

As always, you can call or email us with any questions -

We're really glad you found us.
We're grateful that you're with us.
We look forward to you continuing to be part of our yoga family. :-)

With Warmest Regards
and ZERO Ninja Capoeira Monkeys,
 - Jennephyr, Jared, and The Studio Yoga Staff

P.S. - We are committed to being a 100% Attack-Spider- and Ninja-Capoeira-Monkey Free Zone.
HOLIDAY HOURS

This year we plan to hold all regularly scheduled classes on Wednesday, November 25th.

There will be NO CLASS on Thanksgiving Day, November 26th.

Friday morning, we will hold our regularly scheduled VINYASA class at 9:30am November 27th - so join us after your Black Friday shopping excursion to unwind.

Those of you sleeping in on Black Friday, this class will help you digest your delicious Thanksgiving meal ;-)

is the highest yoga.”
