Community yoga classes mean different things at different studios. Here at Balanced Planet Yoga, a community class is taught by a newly graduated teacher or a teacher new to BPY. The pricing for drop-ins is reduced to $10.00, but a class card can also be used to attend these classes.
Many of the teachers are graduates from the studio’s 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program. You will also find that the studio’s community classes are multiple different offerings like heated classes, vin to yin, BPY flow, or vinyasa. The studio is currently offering the following community classes:
Tuesdays and Thursdays – 6 am classes: Tuesday’s class is Movement + Meditation with Jenn and Thursdays is a power vinyasa RED class with Laura.
Wednesdays + Fridays – 4 pm classes: The type of class will vary.
Saturdays – 12 noon: The classes on Saturday will also vary.
Community classes are a good way for the studio to do two things – create classes that are less expensive [and reduce the financial barrier to practicing] and to create space for new voices to come onto the schedule [improve the opportunity for new teachers].
And we couldn’t close off this post without saying THANK YOU to our BPY community. We so appreciate your support during YTT test out weekend and for your support and encouragement of the hard work it takes to become a yoga teacher. Kudos to all of you.
