We Are Moving! 
Starting Monday, April 1st Yoga W/ Marca classes with Marca & Jill will be held at Rae Yoga Studio, 101 East Main St. Mount Horeb (in the Hoff Mall).  
Jill's Classes & Marca's Classes
Starting on April 1st, Jill will be working independently from Marca. Passes purchased for Jill's classes will be separate from passes purchased for Marca's classes. Passes carried over from before 4/1 will be honored at either teacher's classes until they are fulfilled. 
MindBody Software Elimination Mindbody software will be eliminated within the next 30 days. Starting 4/1, purchases will be made with cash or check (no more credit cards).  Your account information, including your current pass status (i.e. classes remaining, expiration date) can be accessed for the next 30 days. Going forward, classes will be signed into in a log book and passes will be tracked with a punchcard system. 
Limited Class Sizes
We've been spoiled for several years with the amount of studio space we've had at Gonstead (2,500 sq ft)! Rae Yoga Studio holds 15-20 mat spaces comfortably. Traditionally larger classes, like Monday and Friday 8-9 am Level I-Cont. classes will have a chance to pre-book in the new sign-in log book for future classes to reserve their space weeks in advance. Please note that pre-booking, unless canceled in advance by phone or email, will obligate you to pay for the class regardless of your actual attendance.
Existing PassesAll current pass holders will have their passes honored through their expiration date. If there are unexpected class changes that affect your ability to fulfill your pass by its expiration, an extension on the original expiration date will be granted. Passes are non-refundable. If you find that a schedule revision precludes your ability to use your pass, you do have the option to transfer it (sell it or gift it) to another person who can use it.
