Karma Month 2021

“All of ones thoughts, deeds and intentions have an effect on the world and thus on oneself”

~ William K. Mahony, Exquisite Love


What is Karma Month?

Karma classes have been on our schedule since we opened in 2008. Unfortunately, since the pandemic began, in order to make ends meet, we had to stop offering donation-based classes. This April, Karma classes are taking over the schedule – with a slight change. Classes will be pick-your-price instead of donation-based. Our teachers have elected to offer 21 classes a week with this pricing structure. View the Karma month schedule.


Why are you offering Karma Month?

Though yoga has become a booming for-profit industry, along with other wellness services and products, most yoga teachers have a heart for teaching that means more to them than income. Karma is a Sanskrit word that means action. In this particular context, we are taking the perspective that sharing yoga has ripple effects throughout the community. We are treating this as a timed, concerted effort to share yoga widely, as a contribution to the adaptation and resilience of our community.


Does this mean classes are free?

No. Consider this a social experiment and community service project you get to be part of! When you register for a class via MindBody, you will be asked to pick your price from set pricing increments, instead of being told the price.

The expectation is that the generosity of some students will supplement the financial hinderance to others, so place a value on the class with that in mind.  It is recognized that for some, the value they place on what is offered may be highly internal, and we encourage selecting a contribution that feels comfortable to you.


What other options do I have for making classes more accessible to others?

Since the pandemic hit, we have had our Pay Practice Forward program in place. Read more about it, and consider enrolling, to make it possible for us to provide no-cost access to those who need it.


How do I sign up for classes in Karma Month?

All students must pre-register for classes due to limits on our class sizes – 8 people per class, 4 students for Ropes + Props. You will need to create an account in our MindBody system in order to reserve a space in classes and pay for classes. Students who have previously purchased a class card will still able to redeem them as usual.


I have a class card. Can I keep using it during Karma Month?

Yes! You may continue using your card as usual, or you may request to hold your card for the month of April, and your card expiration will be extended by a month. Send us an email if you wish to extend your card while you take advantage of Karma Month options.


Which classes are Karma classes?

All the classes on our weekly schedule will be offered with Karma pricing options.


I have never been to Glowing Body before. What do I do if I want to take a class?

You will need to create an account in our MindBody system in order to reserve a space in classes and pay for classes. Pre-registration for classes is strongly suggested. Drop-ins may not be able to be accommodated if the class is full.

  • Wear comfortable clothes.
  • Arrive 10 minutes early if it is your first time at the studio to get settled & meet the instructor.
  • Please bring your own mat and water.
  • Class sizes are limited and will be filled on a first come, first served basis.

What happens when Karma Month is over?

Though Karma Month pick-your-price classes will only last through April, we are offering a limited time promotion on a monthly 10 class pass, to keep your momentum going! This special promotion will be available during the entire month of April. You must enroll before April ends in order to receive this promotional pricing.

Commit to a 6 month contract for an auto-billed 10 class pass for $80 per month & save BIG!

Why would someone choose this pass?

  • You want to practice on average 2-3 times per week.
  • You prefer the accountability of a pass that expires monthly.
  • You are willing to engage in a contract for a lower rate per class.

Buy this pass!

Why would someone stick with our regular class passes instead?

  • You prefer more flexibility and an expanded timeline for using passes.
  • You prefer to be able to share passes with friends or family.
  • You do not want to commit to a contract.

Purchase a regular class pass.

The fine print:

  • The contract will begin on May 1, meaning you can take advantage of Karma in April, and set yourself up for a pass beginning in May.
  • The student must commit to being automatically billed once per month for 6 months, at a rate of $80 for 10 classes. This is $8 per class, if you use all 10.
  • There is no initiation fee, but there will be a one time fee of $80 for cancellation of the contract before the 6 months is up.
  • Contract is non-transferable. Absolutely no refunds.
  • Student has one month to use each 10 class pass – no extensions. When a month has passed, the remaining classes on that pass are no longer available, if you have not used them, but a new 10 class pass will be started for the subsequent month.
  • This pass may be used for live-stream attendance or in person participation.
  • Contract purchase does not guarantee your spot in classes, pre-registration is required.
  • Class registrations not cancelled at least 30 minutes before class start time will be deducted from your pass.
  • This pass may not be shared with friends or family members, and may only be used by the pass holder themselves.
  • Glowing Body reserves the right terminate this contract for any reason at anytime, and to refund collected funds on a prorated basis, as indicated.
