Contemplations

Does confusing pricing keep you from going to yoga?

There’s the Groupons, the Living Socials, the Gilt City, the Rue La La and so on; viral online couponing yoga classes ad nauseam.  There’s the drop-ins, the free and not-free mat-rentals.  The class cards and the unlimited classes.  The student pricing.  The community cash-only classes.  The extra charge for paying with a credit card, or the penalty fee for cancelling a membership.  The expiration dates and the summer sales.

Living Social

We’ve folded yoga into the current models of capitalist business.  Does the yoga suffer when this happens?  Maybe.  Sometimes. Case-by-case.  In general, I think the more people doing yoga, the better.  Whatever the catalyst for unrolling their mat and trying yoga, awesome!

My question today is this: Would a simpler pricing structure at studios make it easier for you to show up?

What do you suggest?  Tell me in the comments!
