How much does a Yoga Class Cost in Utah?

How much does a Yoga Class Cost in Utah?

Nationally, the average cost of a yoga class is about $12, and Utah is right in line with that. The Salt Lake and Utah Valleys, in particular, offer affordable prices compared to the rest of the country. It’s pretty easy to find a drop-in class for $12 or less, especially if you have a local ID. In many metropolitan areas, the average cost of a class is now closer to $15-$20.

Now some classes will naturally cost more, sometimes a lot more. Due to the extra costs of maintaining a safe, therapeutic environment, hot yoga classes tend to cost a little more. Meanwhile, private yoga instruction can cost as much as $75-$100+. Still, don’t dismiss the idea prematurely. Some instructors who offer private lessons out of their home can offer rates as low as $25/hour, even though this is the exception and not the rule. Moreover, some studios will offer private lessons at a discounted rate on a temporary basis, especially if this instruction helps you overcome barriers to joining regular studio classes.

 

How to Reduce the Cost of a Yoga Class

Keep in mind, the $12 average price tag is for a drop-in class at the regular studio price. First-timers can find free, introductory classes. Some studios also offer free promotional classes, either once a week or once a month. Even after these free yoga opportunities have run dry, paying for a standalone class every once in a while can be a great way to make sure you don’t get complacent with your free, in-home yoga habit.

That said, most Utah studios also offer package deals that can reduce the cost of each yoga class. And by finding a deal that makes sense for your immediate budget and commitment level, it doesn’t take much to come out ahead.

Unlimited Pass Cards: These are most often sold in 1-month and 3-month durations. Two quick words of warning here: First, don’t put up a bunch of money until you’re sure a regular yoga habit is right for you. Second, ask yourself if you’re in danger of over-exercising by taking on too many strenuous classes each week. With this in mind, an unlimited pass card can be the ideal solution for someone looking to take their yoga passion to the next level with, say, an alternating schedule of restorative yoga sessions and more active classes. Or maybe your daily meditative yoga class is providing essential benefits in reducing the symptoms of a mental illness.

Class Punch Cards: These are better for people with variable schedules and interests. Due to work and travel, you might take 3 classes a week one month. Then, the next month, you struggle to make it to even one yoga class per week. These punch cards allow you to get sizable discounts on the studio’s classes without the same level of commitment or frequency. Some studios also sell group and family punch cards that can be shared by more than one person. Just be sure you know when your card expires. Often sold in 1-month, 3-month, and 6-month intervals.

Membership and Promotional Discounts: Some studios offer club membership in which an annual fee gives you something like a 20% discount on any classes you attend. Promotional deals for students, veterans, and/or senior citizens are also fairly common. And to reduce crowds and maintain a full schedule of classes, some studios offer discount rates for their lunchtime and late-evening classes.
