Ok this title is admittedly misleading because you’d have to take class every single day to get the price down that low BUT my trickery doesn’t take away from the bottom line: there are killer deals for new clients at most yoga (and fitness) studios. To continue my #GRONKonomics post series with 360 Savings from Capital One, I want to breakdown the best deals for yoga in Boston.
At the start of 2015, I was just really committing myself to a regular practice, so even though I’ve lived in Boston for years, I hadn’t been to most of the yoga studios here. That meant I got to take advantage of new client specials for months. It was awesome. And I don’t know about you, but if I feel like I’m getting a deal on a class package, I am extra motivated to go as much as possible and really get my money’s worth. Unlimited classes for 30 days? Game on. I will literally go Every. Single. Day. as if it’s some sort of competition to drive my price per class down.
There are lots more yoga studios and class offerings in Boston, but here are the ones I’ve either gone to myself or intend to go to soon.
New Client Specials for Yoga Studios in Boston
YogaWorks (Back Bay Yoga) | 2 weeks for $25
I love Back Bay Yoga (now called YogaWorks)! It’s close to Btone so some days I’ll double up and do a yoga class after a megaformer beating. The two are the best compliment to each other.
[ONGOING] $5 Community Classes – Usually at 2PM (although there are a few later options during the week I believe), YogaWorks offers community classes for only $5. There are also a ton of hour-long classes on the schedule that you can take for only $10.
Karma Yoga | 2 weeks for $25
Karma Yoga’s Newbury Street location is right behind my apartment, so it was really convenient for me to take advantage of their new client special last winter when a block was about the maximum distance I was willing to walk. I didn’t go every day of the two weeks, but I definitely got my $25 worth!
South Boston Yoga | $5 first class + 2 weeks for $25
Now that I don’t live in Southie any more, I rarely make it out that way *sad face* but South Boston Yoga is worth the train ride and I really should go back. Your first class is only $5 and when you’re at the studio, they’ll then offer you an additional 2 weeks for $25.
[ONGOING] $10 Community Classes – I’m pretty sure these are only offered a couple times a week, but check the schedule!
Prana Power Yoga | 1 week for $25
I just tried Prana Power Yoga for the first time last week and loved the class. I went to their Cambridge studio which is right down the street from Life Alive so the combination made for the perfect afternoon across the river.
Core Power Yoga | 1 week FREE
I can’t believe I STILL haven’t tried Core Power Yoga! People rave about it, but I rarely get my butt outside Boston Proper to workout. I’ve heard whispers that CP is looking to open a location in the city so I’m holding out for that.
North End Yoga | 30 days for $45
When Btone’s North End location opens up next month (I’ll be teaching there Tuesday & Wednesday mornings!), I’m looking forward to buying NE Yoga’s intro special and checking out the studio. There are so many awesome places to workout in the city, but I tend to stay within my neighborhood these days for convenience. Teaching in the North End will give me a good excuse to try out some studios there and hang out at all my old favorite spots (I used to live there).
Health Yoga Life | 1 month for $45
I don’t make it to Beacon Hill often so I haven’t tried Health Yoga Life, but it continually pops up in lists of yoga studios to try in Boston, and they’ve got a great new client special!
If you’re new to Boston, take advantage of these new client specials! Studio hop until you find the one you like best. Something I’ll do with these types of specials is calculate how much I’m saving and then transfer that amount immediately into my savings account. So if I buy an intro special at a new studio and get to pay $45 for an unlimited month instead of $150, I’ll make myself put $105 into my savings account (rather than spend it on the inevitable new pair of shoes I don’t need). This system has helped me take my savings from dismal to just mildly pathetic (hey, baby steps, ok?!). 😉
