I am very excited to announce a new stage in how the Mud Hut Yoga studio will be running in the future!
As you all probably know, I run classes by the school term with two weeks extra break in the July holidays. This has always worked well for me and allowed me time to fit in all my other commitments. Luckily I have rarely had to cancel classes due to illness or unavoidable commitments that clash with classes – however, it is always a concern for me about ‘what to do’ if I can’t fulfil my current teaching schedule. With a growing number of enthusiastic students, many of whom would like to continue throughout the year without so many breaks, I have been working on an alternative way of doing things for over holidays and also to deal with times when I can’t teach.
The initial plan is to run a 4 week holiday program from Monday 29th June till Friday 24th July. This is being made possible with the introduction of two new teachers to the Mud Hut. All classes will remain unchanged during this time except for the Tuesday evening classes. The 5.15pm class and the 7.00pm class will be blended and become a 6.00pm class. We decided that over winter this should work for everyone and lessen the workload by one class. Term classes will continue unchanged from Monday 27th July – Friday 18th September (8 week term).
Classes will run according to demand. I will be taking bookings over the next couple of weeks. Bookings need to be confirmed with payment by FRIDAY 19th JUNE. You do not need to book for the whole 4 weeks. Just book and pay for the classes you are able to attend. I will let everyone know which classes will go ahead when numbers are finalised. If a class does not go ahead due to insufficient numbers a full refund will be made or you can swap to another class. For people who are unable to plan that far ahead – you will have the option to join in any of the classes, subject to an available place.
Prices are as follows:
· 4 classes $56 * 3 classes $42 * 2 classes $28 *1 class $14 *casual $18 per class
· 2 classes per week (8 classes - $88)
Please place your correct payment in an envelope with your name and the number of classes you are booking. This will make it easier to keep track of payments and will simplify refunds if they are required.
There will be a booking form and also a consent form to sign which will allow me to make your registration forms (which include your medical details) available to the other teachers at the Mud Hut. Please speak to me if you have a concern with this issue.
I hope there will be lots of support for this new initiative and that as many people as possible will take the opportunity to support our new teachers and at the same time broaden your yoga experience – learning with a different teacher is always a lot of fun! I’m just sorry I won’t be around to join in the classes!! I really am looking forward to being able to offer a more comprehensive yearly timetable.
