Buy your yoga pass this month at student rate @ Sampoorna Yoga Studio

_MG_2010December is a month when good intentions often wane. Everyone is busy with shopping and preparing for St Nicholas and Christmas, there’s the year-end rush at work, it’s cold and dark… so you don’t get to do as much yoga as you’d like. To help you keep up in the busy month of December Sampoorna Yoga Studio wanted to extend a special offer to you:

Everyone is eligible for the student discount (reduced rate) until 24/12/2017 – and this on all yoga passes, both unlimited and multi-class. For example :

  • 10-class pass – 90€ (instead of 135 €)
  • 20-class pass – 150€ (instead of 220 €)
  • 1-month unlimited pass – 75€ (instead of 110 €)

A significant saving, and a good incentive to keep your practice going! See you soon in class! Check out my schedule in December.
