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

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 have had to stop offering donation-based classes on a routine basis. This April, Karma classes are taking over the schedule, all month long. Classes will be pick-your-price for as little as $10 per class. View our class 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 positive adaptation and resilience in 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 a set price.
The expectation is that the generosity of some students will supplement financial limitations of others, so place a value on the class with that in mind. We recognize 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.
When does Karma Month begin?
As of April 1st, our full weekly schedule will have pick your price payment options. We are sharing two special events the first weekend in April:
Glowing Body is partnering with YeeHaw brewing, our new neighbor, for outdoor yoga classes weekly. Every participant in class will receive a wristband that offers them $1 off beverages after class ends.
Pick your price for class! Yoga with your friends! Stay for brunch at YeeHaw after class!
On Sunday, April 2nd, from 12-3pm, we are hosting an open-house featuring:
*Promotional class pass sale (available in studio only)
*Raffle fundraiser to benefit Bridge Refugee Services
How do I sign up for classes during Karma Month?
All students should pre-register for classes due to limits on our class sizes. 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 to utilize later, 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 price options.
Which classes are Karma classes?
All the classes on our weekly schedule will be offered with Karma pricing options. There are also numerous specialty workshops and series with pick your price 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.
Class sizes are limited and will be filled on a first come, first served basis.
Wear comfortable clothes.
Arrive 10 minutes early if it is your first time at the studio to get settled & meet the instructor. Always arrive before class start time, as doors will often be locked once class begins.
Mats are available to borrow during your class.
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 for purchase from April 18th-30th. You must enroll before April ends in order to receive this promotional pricing.
Commit to a 3 month contract for an auto-billed 10 class pass for $100 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.
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.
The fine print:
The contract will begin on the date you choose at time of purchase, meaning you can take full advantage of Karma pricing in April.
The student must commit to being automatically billed once per month for 3 months, at a rate of $100 for 10 classes. This is $10 per class, if you use all 10.
There is no initiation fee, but there will be a one time fee of $100 for cancellation of the contract before the 3 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 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.
