"You can learn new things at any time in your life if you're willing to be a beginner. If you actually learn to like being a beginner, the whole world opens up to you."- Barbara Sher


Are you a New Student? Welcome!

Whether you have abundant yoga experience or are new to the practice we welcome you to Heartwood. You can always drop in and pay for a single class for $15.00, but if you are new to yoga (or just new to Heartwood Retreat Center) you may wish to start by purchasing a Groupon for classes which offers a low introductory special to get you started. This provides you an opportunity to try out the school with a discounted starter package to experience the schools fine teachers, ambiance and general "vibe" so you can determine if we are a good fit for you.


If you are new to yoga, any gentle or basic yoga class will provide you with a good foundation experience, and we also offer Restorative yoga and other special classes that would help get you started in a comfortable way. You can check our schedule out online on the website, or download the convenient Heartwood Retreat Center ap on your phone for up to date schedules and information. Of course we have many other classes to try as well, including aerial yoga, all levels flow, Yoga on the Labyrinth and more.


Groupon/ or our introductory special

Groupon specials include $29.50 for a 5 class pass, or $56.50 for a 10 class pass (50% off). You can purchase this special discount package online or right at our front desk, but the Groupon or introductory special can be used only once for students new to Heartwood, after which you must purchase class packages or sign up for a monthly, quarterly or yearly pass depending on how much yoga you plan to fit into your life.

If you have a Groupon, you do not need to preregister for a class. Just please bring it with you to your first class and we will set up your account on your first visit. From then on, your classes will be in an online account so you can sign up online before arrival or when you get here. Class passes can be used for yoga, writing, shamanic journeys or any basic 1 to 2 hour class at Heartwood. (Workshops and Retreats must be registered for differently.) All groupon packages have a three month expiration from the first class taken. No exceptions. Class packages purchased at the regular price have a one year expiration date. We're sorry, but only one Groupon can be purchased per student and there are no exceptions (even if groupon continues to send you solicitations and invitations to buy more.)  


After your introductory package, you can pay per class, or buy a package of classes or monthly unlimited membership. Our fees and discounts are outlined on the "fees" page and you can learn more about our different classes on the class description page.
