A note to our current students, whom we love dearly…

We strive to offer the very best Bikram yoga instruction to each and every one of our students. And we pride ourselves on the unique healing environment we have created here in Chadds Ford. So we have very mixed feelings about discounting.

We hire very experienced teachers, and we pay them well. They deserve it! Many of them travel long distances to get here. And they spend very long hours in the hot room. We want them to feel good working here. Just like we want you to feel good practicing here.

We have created a beautiful studio space, with lots of natural light, a spacious lobby and quality finishes. We invest regularly in cleaning, maintenance, education and upgrades. What’s more, we fund community events and give away a (relatively small) portion of our revenue to charitable causes chosen by our students.

We aren’t interested in being a yoga factory. You deserve better. Just like Bikram, we believe the hard way is the right way!

That said, we do need to persuade new students to come through the doors and try a class. Do you remember your first class? Were you anxious and a little scared?

We strongly prefer water over soda. In the Cokve vs. Pepsi taste wars, though, customers clearly preferred the taste of Pepsi. We think folks will like Bikram best, too. If we can just get them to try it!

That’s why we offer lower prices for brand new students. The Intro Week makes it easy for people to come in and get used to our practice, our students, our teachers, our space. Sort of like the Coke vs. Pepsi taste test. Remember that? (If you’re old enough?!?!)

But it’s hard for us to get the word out. So we occasionally reach out to Living Social and Groupon to help us spread the word. This is Bikram’s Beginning Yoga. It’s for Every Body! So we want Every Body to try it…And to come back. Over and over again.

Thank you so much for welcoming new students with open arms.
