Is there such a thing as affordable yoga in Boulder, Colorado? Weigh in, in the comments section, below—and help point aspiring yogis to a mat they can afford in these tough economic times.

Question via Jan.
Message    Hi. I’m trying to find a budget drop-in yoga class in Boulder. To me budget means $5 to $7. Does such an animal exist? I live in Gunbarrel and would also like to find something reasonably closeby. Thanks.

Answer #1: Waylon Lewis, ed.

North Boulder Rec Center
has great classes…great teachers…and I hear is quite affordable. Not sure what else…

Yours, Way

Donation is suggested at 10dllrs per session, and I offer a donation basis only (meaning there is no minimum) yoga Sundays at Noon ~ come share your practice with us.

    Thanks, Yeye. Sounds good and I may turn up on a Sunday or Sundays. I clicked the link but was unable to see or find the yoga schedule. How can I find it?


  4. Jan says:

    Thanks Derek. That sounds good too, but I’d like to find a more permanent yoga home than just a couple of trial classes! If you hear of anything else, I’d be glad to know.

    Best wishes,

    Marvelous! That is a perfect time for me, too, after my day’s work. I’ll try to make it.

  8. Kendra says:

    The Yoga Pod is amazing and has 30 days unlimited for $30 (for new students) or you can do a week unlimited for $10. I just started there a month ago and I LOVE YOGA POD! The teachers are great and the studio is nice and peaceful. It's located at the 29th Street Mall.

    Our downstairs yoga studio is a great place to unwind or get your groove on.
    Feb. schedule available at the store.1147 Pearl street @ Broadway.

    For yoga on the cheap, Netflix has lots of yoga dvds. If you are already a member, just put one at the top of your queue, or sign up for the minimum plan at $4.95 a month.

    You could also learn from a book from the library with friends. Be resourceful! Classes are not strictly necessary. I’ve found that my best practice is alone, as I can really listen to my body.

  12. Brian says:

    I’m offering a drop in class for $10 per session. It’s my way of doing what I can to help out in this recession. The class is a breath based vinyasa flow. It’s an all levels class and everyone is welcome. I’ve been teaching since 1997 and have been in Boulder for 3 years.
    the location is,
    1260 Folsom st.
    Boulder, CO 80302
    It’s in the Wesley Chapel.
    The class is Monday nights from 6 to 7:15 ish.

    As a confessed linkaholic, note I had just bookmarked this link for my own edification without knowledge of your cheap yoga research request.
    I haven’t tried it, and am not a big one for practicing yoga at home, but as a mother of two, yoga is such a luxury, both timewise and expense-wise. I am considering buying this service for a friend who’s a new single mother. It’s so hard to schedule in a class without child, nevermind new born and single.

    Richard Freeman recommended Iyengar’s “Light on Yoga” to me 30 years ago and I’ve been using it ever since. I’m only half-way through, so it should last me for my next life too. My living room and wilderness spots don’t charge me a thing!

    Hi- how do you get an ompass????

  17. Good site, where did you come up with the knowledge in this post? Im glad I found it though, ill be checking back soon to see what other articles you have.

  18. The Little Yoga Studio is, hands down, the most affordable yoga studio in town. The teachers are outstanding and all classes are 10$, every one! If you are a frequent practitioner, they have a 40 consecutive day offer for 100$'s which makes each day $2.50 a class. The studio is so friendly, the cleanest in town, has a wide range of classes for beginners to advanced, three free classes a week, one taught entirely in Spanish- this studio is a must see- The classes are not crowded and each student gets individualized attention (or the teachers will leave you alone if you wish) It is simply the most wonderful studio in Boulder- love it, love it love it!

  19. You are not a student, you are a teacher, I see you on the website- this is for community posts, not to pretend you are a student and you are really an employee
