Two ways to pay - come every week or drop in when you can

Option 1 - Half Term Course

Regular yogis attending every week pay just £6 a session.

Each course runs for 5-7 weeks (depending on school term dates and the availability of the venue) with the price set accordingly.

If you know in advance that you are going to be away for one or two weeks then let Jo know before the new course starts to pay a reduced price.

Sudden change of plan? You can switch to another Ananda Yoga class that same week if you cannot make your usual class (please check with Jo).

Even if you occasionally have to miss a class, paying for a course works out as the best value for money.

Courses are payable as a one off fee in advance of the first class of each half term. 

Option 2 - Class Pass

£37.00 buys you a "Class Pass". Bring you card along to each session to be ticked off. Attend any five classes within 3 months (or 12 Ananda Yoga sessions) of the first class attended.

Pay cash before the start of a class or email Jo for online banking details to make your payment before you come along.​​
