What kinds of offerings will I find at Willow Street?

We offer yoga, Pilates, and meditation instruction in three main formats: weekly classes, workshop series, and workshops/special events. We also offer one-on-one sessions.

Weekly classes afford students the opportunity gradually to build skill, understanding, strength, and flexibility over time.

Workshop series are focused multi-week offerings by our own teachers and by guests. Some of our workshop series occur monthly and are available a-la-carte (or in a group for a discount), while other series are available in full due to the topic presented.

Workshops/special events at Willow Street are offered both by our own talented teachers and by world-renowned guest instructors. Each year, we are honored to host diverse workshop offerings that help students reach new levels of understanding in myriad topics: asana, meditation, philosophy, and more. We advise early registration for workshops, as space is limited!

 

How do I enroll and pay?

We accept registrations online, in person, or by mail. Online registration is recommended; you’ll receive immediate confirmation and receipt! For paper registrations, we accept cash, checks, Visa, and Mastercard. Sorry, we do not accept advance registrations for class drop-ins. See our Membership and Pass options here and Membership terms here.

 

Can I drop in?

Short answer: YES!

Longer answer: You are welcome to drop in to any class for $25. We also offer drop-ins in packs of ten: our Ten Class Pass is available for $210 and has a six month expiry. Our auto-renewing Rolling Ten Pack is only $180 and has a three month expiry.

 

Do you offer memberships?

Yes! We offer two levels of memberships.

Our Everyday Practice Members  pay a monthly rate – $144 – to take as many classes as they like. Membership includes 20% discounts on workshops and Living Yoga programs, and special monthly offers.

Our Weekly Plus Members pay a monthly rate of $79 for five classes (one class a week, plus a bonus class) to be used within the month, in addition to perennial offers and gifts.

Memberships are available at the front desk, online, or by emailing the Registrar.

 

What happened to the student/senior/military discount?

We’re changing the way we offer financial assistance to our students.

We are shifting away from small, blanket discounts and toward more significantly reduced prices for people who otherwise cannot afford to study with us.
If you need financial assistance in order to be able to practice at WSY, please write to us.

 

Do you offer any new student specials?

Yes! Starting this September, if you are new to Willow Street (or haven’t been here since Nov 2016), try out our month of unlimited classes for only $59!

 

I’m new to Willow Street – what will I need when I arrive?

  • Please check in at the front desk – we’ll help you find your way to the right dressing room and answer any questions you might have.
  • We provide all props and mats you’ll need, free of charge, and of course you’re most welcome bring your own.
  • Wear comfortable “work-out” clothing; nothing too baggy, please, so instructors can see your alignment.
  • All classes are attended in bare feet; there’s space for your shoes in our dressing rooms.
  • You may leave clothes, coats and shoes in our dressing rooms, but bring valuables into the practice space with you (there are cubbies for wallets/keys/cell phones).
  • Please silence and de-vibrate your cell phone.
  • Our yoga boutiques have an ever-changing selection of clothes, props, and other yoga, meditation and Pilates resources.

 

I have a voucher or free class pass – how do I use it?

Bring in your voucher or free class pass to drop in to any class appropriate for your level. Vouchers and passes ARE transferable, so you can gift it to a friend or family member, too! Please check in at the front desk on your way to class.

 

I need to drop my workshop – can I get a refund?

All workshop refund requests must be received in writing by the Registrar, or requested through the online registration system, more than 48 hours prior to the start of the workshop. Refunds are subject to a 20% admin fee.

 

Does Willow Street close for holidays?

Sometimes. Planned 2018 closures include July 4th and Thanksgiving Day.

 

How does Willow Street handle inclement weather?

If your class or workshop is cancelled due to bad weather, you’ll find cancellation messages posted on our home page, and our Facebook page – 90min before start time (or 5:30am for all pre-8am classes).
