Comments Off on Free Week of Yoga Classes

National Yoga Month heads to the mat in September 2013, and new students at participating yoga studios get a week of free yoga in September or October with the Yoga Month Card.

National Yoga Month aims to educate us on the benefits of yoga and inspire everyone to live healthier, happier lives. Can’t argue with that, can you?

As part of the celebration, new students can get a free week of yoga classes with the Yoga Month Card, throughout September and October until October 30, 2013.

The card for a free week of yoga is for NEW students only, to give you a chance to try out yoga at participating studios. Our understanding from conversations with the yoga teachers in previous years is that ‘new student’ means new to a particular studio – you don’t have to be a beginner. But check in advance with your chosen studio with any questions.

Participating Albuquerque yoga studios at time of writing (more may be added) are:

  • Midtown Sports & Wellness (4100 Prospect NE)
  • Holistic Wellness Co-Op (1024 Eubank NE)
  • Albuquerque Ashtanga Yoga (206 Dartmouth Drive NE)
  • Kundun Yoga in Cedar Crest

Register for the Free Yoga Month Card, choose a studio, then print out the card. The offer is for one yoga card per person, and you can only choose one studio. You can’t change your selection later, so confirm any questions in advance with the studio to be certain you’ve picked the one you want.  It’s possible that more studios may join the program so you can always wait a few days if the ones listed aren’t so convenient for you.

Then use the card for a week’s worth of free lessons until October 30, 2013.

Sadly there don’t seem to be any other Albuquerque free yoga events this year – sometimes there have been special free classes. But perhaps some will come on board or let us know if they’ve got National Yoga Month specials on offer. If so, I’ll update.

Still, the luxury of a week of free yoga classes is rather fab. And if you’re going to do a sun salutation, what better place to do it than sunny Albuquerque?

Free Albuquerque Yoga Classes

Comments Off on Free Albuquerque Yoga Classes

National Yoga Month heads to the mat in September 2010 with free Albuquerque yoga classes August 30 – September 4, and new students get a week of free yoga in September or October with the Yoga Month Card.

National Yoga Month aims to educate us to the benefits of yoga and inspire everyone to live healthier, happier lives. Can’t argue with that, can you? Especially when it’s all FREE!  I’m feeling happier already.

Here’s what we’ve got so far on National Yoga Month in Albuquerque, although other yoga studios may join in and play. We’ll update if we hear more.

Free Yoga Classes at Alignment Yoga NM

  • Every class is free next week, August 30 – September 4, 2010.
  • That includes beginning/intermediate classes, pre-natal, back care, and meditation
  • Teacher Christine Stump leads these alignment and breath-based Hatha yoga classes (she’s also studied Iyengar, Ashtanga, and Anusara yoga)
  • Alignment Yoga NM classes take place at Holistic Wellness Co-op, 1024 Eubank NE.

You’re saving $16 bucks a class, as that’s how much their classes usually cost at the drop-in rate. Although (another deal alert!) if you’re a new student, your first session is $16 and the second class is FREE! Monthly rate for unlimited classes is $80.

Free Week of Yoga Classes for New Students with the Yoga Month Card

The card for a free week of yoga is for NEW students only, to give you a chance to try out yoga at participating studios. Our understanding is that ‘new student’ means new to a particular studio – you don’t have to be a beginner. That’s the case with Alignment Yoga NM, but check in advance with other locations.

  • Use the card for a week’s worth of free lessons between September 1 – October 31, 2010
  • Register for the Free Yoga Month Card, choose a studio, then print out the card
  • Check the small print for details. EG: one card per person, and when you print out the Yoga Month Card, it must include the URL at the top of the page to be valid
  • Participating Albuquerque yoga studios (more may be added):  Yoga Now (Downtown), Nob Hill Yoga Center on Central, Alignment Yoga NM at Holistic Wellness Co-Op on Eubank NE.

Note that if you take an Alignment Yoga NM free yoga class next week, you can’t use the Yoga Month Card for more freebies later. Because, you know, you won’t be a new student there any more! So take your pick.

The luxury of freebie yoga choices is rather fab. And if you’re going to do a sun salutation, what better place to do it than sunny Albuquerque, New Mexico?

Free Yoga & Free Cartoons at The Kosmos

May 27, 2010 by  
Filed under Freebies, Kids, Sport & Leisure

Comments Off on Free Yoga & Free Cartoons at The Kosmos

Let’s get this straight – these are two separate events. The free yoga (on Fridays) is for adults. The free cartoons (on Saturdays) are for kids. But at The Kosmos, you could probably mix that up and nobody would bat an eye…

The Kosmos (known to many as the venue for Church of Beethoven) has slashed its coffee house hours, but you can’t keep a good barista down. The Kosmos is still brewing for events including these two weekly programs:

  • Free Yoga: On Friday mornings from 9:30 to 10:30 am. Bring your own mat.
  • Kosmic Toonage: Watch free cartoons on the big screen on Saturday from 10 am to noon. You can also get a $1.50 bowl of cereal, which they describe as “better than worms”…. and who are we to argue?

The Kosmos serves coffee made with locally roasted beans from Fat Boy Roasters, it takes cash only, and free Wi-Fi is thrown in.

The Kosmos is located at 1715 5th St NW, just south of I-40. 

Note: The Kosmos has confirmed that these two free events are ongoing for the foreseeable future. However, if you’re reading this in some future time warp we can only imagine, it’s probably best to check directly with the source before setting off in your yoga kit.

Free Yoga Classes & Events for January 23 Yoga Day USA

January 19, 2010 by  
Filed under Freebies, Spas & Health

Assume your positions for Downward Facing Dog, with a day of free yoga events on January 23, thanks to Yoga Day USA. It’s perfectly timed to destress after hectic hols, or start getting into shape after festive feasts – and all at the bliss-out price of zero bucks.

Free Albuquerque area yoga classes and related events will be held at the following venues on Saturday January 23 – check out individual links for schedule info and other details:

Southwest Sports Institute has a full day packed with events, including free yoga workshops, talks, and chanting. Bring your own yoga mat. (5910 Midway Park Blvd. NE, 87109)

Ripple Effect offers a free Intro to Yoga Workshop: for Beginners & Beginners Mind between 1:00 and 3:00 pm. (1024 Eubank NE, 87123)  This workshop is now full – see comment below.

A Time To Relax Yoga Studio hosts a free Yoga for Women’s Reproductive Health class from 4:30 to 6:30 pm. (11603 Menaul Blvd. NE)

YogaCrossroads in Placitas has a day of free hatha yoga classes for all levels, although for this one you’re asked to bring a donation of five non-perishable food items for Casa Rosa Food Bank. They tell you the kind of stuff they need at the link – all pretty basic and easy. Feed the hungry at the same time you feed your soul – excellent idea, huh? (1 Anatoly Court, Placitas, 87043)

Yoga Day USA comes courtesty of the non-profit Yoga Alliance.

OK Yogis, let’s stretch our bodies, not our budgets…
