For some time members have regularly commented and we have felt that our hourly pricing system no longer works for the studio. We’ve been meaning to address this for some time and have come up with a change of pricing proposal.
When we set up Yoga West all our classes were an hour but now the majority of our classes are over an hour. The hours system is opaque, leaves people with little bits of time here and there and often causes confusion. We wanted our pricing to be simple to operate and understand, fair and transparent.
We are proposing a new pricing system from the beginning of July based on pricing for classes not hours. The average class (weighted for attendance) at Yoga West is now just under 75 minutes and growing. As such we need to charge about 20-25% more for classes than hours. We also saw this as an opportunity to make things as simple as possible and to let go of options people don’t really use.
All classes are £15 to drop in.
Community classes remain at £8
5 classes are £70 (£14 a class)
10 classes are £125 (£12.50 a class)
30 classes are £330 (£11 a class)
10 classes off peak are £100 (£10 a class)
Monthly membership and annual unchanged
30 day unlimited £125
£25 with a £20 earlybird
