Keeping you Informed
Previously Purchased Class Pass Extensions: Don't worry everyone, when this is all over and we return to the studios, everyone's passes will be extended for the period that we're closed. Just be sure to email me at andrew@heartspacealbany.com to give me a reminder when we restart classes. If you were enrolled in a series or workshop we will try to reschedule or write to us for a refund.

Yoga mats. Anyone need a new yoga mat? We got em. $45/$25. The $45 mat is the Bheka Long Life Mat, (emerald green) with great durability, grip, and cushioning; a great value for the price. If you want to purchase one, we can arrange pickup or dropoff. Email me for details.

Keep it Simple and Help out Heartspace: Make An Account Payment to Help Keep our Credit Card Fees Down Rather than making individual credit card purchases everytime you sign up for a class, you can make an online account payment for yourself and then apply a portion of the balance towards your classes when you sign up classes. That will help keep our credit card expenses down which include a per transaction fee. Click here to add to your studio account balance . Note, accessing your account balance is easiest is you do it directly from our Mindbody Online Page, not the schedule you see embedded on our home page. Questions? Need help with doing this? Email us .

Here're some things to remember about our online classes.

  • Register on MIndbody at least 30 minutes in advance: We will email you a link to the Zoom live stream 30 minutes prior to class so try to sign up in advance.

  • Pricing: Flexible. You can choose to pay what you want. $1- $20. No judgement as we are all in different financial situations right now. However, everyone's feeling the stress of the times and yoga helps out big time right now. Your payment goes to support your instructors and Heartspace, as we still have to carry our overhead of maintaining our studios while closed.

  • Classes Are Available Online for 24 Hours...usually: Can't make it for the listed class time? No problem. When you sign up for a class, you can choose to watch it online in real time when its offered or if you register and can't view it or get interrupted during class, you'll all be emailed a link to view it on the Zoom cloud so that you can watch or download it anytime within 24 hours. Note: Truth be told when our storage capacity maxes out we might delete a class a few hours prior but generally it should be available a full day afterwards

  • Expanding Schedule of Classes and Workshops and Online Registration: We are growing out our schedule day by day, including hatha, gentle, kundalini, vinyasa, slow flow and yin. Our online classes are listed on our Troy Schedule Tab in our Mindbody Online Schedule.

Unlimited Passes? Not now. At this time, we can't offer unlimited monthly online passes for a couple reasons. Instead, think about what you can budget for classes this month, put that amount into your studio account, consider how many classes you want to take, and then when you sign up, divide the amount in your account by number of classes and that'll tell you how much you can donate per class. Example: $80 in account. 8 classes per month. Simple math, $10/class. See my note below about placing funds into your studio account. If you don't use it all, it'll be in your account for future use when we reopen such as class passes, massage, workshops, etc.

Thanks for your support and patience everyone. We look forward to seeing you in person someday! Be well everyone!
