Hello to you all on this Monday morning. I have heard that the weather today will be quite nice. However, it was my mother who told me that and she says this most days. She is, if nothing else, the eternal optimist (and this year finally got that summer heat wave that she’s been talking about since 1991).
We will be releasing our new timetable on Monday 2nd September (it will be available online and in reception very soon). Once again, we have added more classes so we hope that you will be pleased with some of the changes that we have made.
We have added a Yin yoga class on Tuesdays at 10am and we have also added a hot yoga class on Saturday mornings (time to be confirmed). Our new classes will be taken by two new teachers, Niamh and Jo respectively, who we warmly welcome to our team.
Niamh will teach our new Yin yoga class at 10am on Tuesdays from 3rd September. You can follow Niamh on Twitter @niamhrasayoga and visit her website here.
Jo will teach our new hot yoga class and our healthy heat class on Saturdays from 7th September. You can also follow Jo on Twitter @Joanne_huddart.
New Look Reception
We have recently had our reception repainted and we are really pleased with the finished look. Over the weekend we finally got around to putting the current reception furniture on eBay (as beautiful as it is, it is not suitable for a yoga studio) and we have ordered some new chairs for the reception area. They should be arriving by the end of week.
We have one set of lockers now installed in the female changing rooms. The second set arrived this morning and these will be going just outside the yoga studio (as soon as we can get the water cooler removed. It is plumbed in and so we need the company who own it to come out and take it away).
Here at Absolute Yoga we are always thinking of new and innovative ways to impress and “wow” our members. Accordingly, we have put elastic bands on the lockers keys so that you will not burn yourself when you pick up the locker key from the hot yoga room floor 😉
If you do use one of the lockers please can you make sure that you leave the key in the locker after you have finished your class and left the studio. Thanks so much.
Online Booking System
We have ordered the online booking software and we should have this up and running very soon (we just need to undergo some training first…and by “we” I mean “me” and I can’t say that I am looking forward to teaching my father how to use it).
August Special Offer
The £15 for 30 days special offer on the off peak classes continues until the end of August. Even if you book this offer on the 31st of August you can still have your 30 days running into September.
Becca and Angela go on Holiday
Becca and Angela are off on their holidays for a well earned rest on Sunday 1st September. You will see a few new faces in the studio as we have brought in new yoga teachers to cover some of Becca’s classes. We still have a few classes to finalise but we should have confirmation of who is doing what for you soon and we will put this online under the “timetables” menu.
Slightly New Pricing Structure from September 2013
We have made a couple of (good) changes to the pricing structure…
Originally we gave a discount of 15% on student memberships so a £69 membership would be £58.65. Having been a student in higher education myself for over ten years I know how expensive things can be when you are on a budget. Accordingly, student memberships will now be £45 per month (for 18+ with NUS card).
Anyone who has paid for a three month membership or more on the old system will have the difference credited to their membership account at Absolute Yoga so that they will not lose out on this offer.
Off Peak Membership
We have introduced a new off peak membership which is £30 for one month. Discounts are not available on this alternative package. The off peak memberships includes the following classes:
Monday 10am Pilates
Tuesday 10am Yin Yoga
Wednesday 10am Pilates and 4.30pm Hot Fusion
Thursday 10am Hot Yoga and 11.30am Healthy Heat
Friday 10am Hot Yoga and 11.30am Hot Pilates
Saturday Healthy Heat (time to be confirmed)
Have a fab day everyone and we hope to see you at the studio very soon.
