New Student Specials


We have several specials that are exclusive for new students. (See below.) Most Shine students utilize our "class passes" that allow you to come to any class on our regular group class schedule. We sell packages of 5, 10, and 20 which all have a three-month expiration date. (This or the New Student Monthly Unlimited are recommended for the New Beginner Series.) We also offer monthly unlimited contract passes. Click on our "Class Pricing" page for more info on our regular class packages. 

Explorer Pass: 5 classes for $35 (two-week expiration date).

Good for new students and also current students who might like to check out some other classes other than your usuals. One per client. 


New Student Monthly Unlimited - $48

All the classes you can take in one month. Includes full access to our on-demand library.

You will only be able to see this pass if you have not attended Shine Yoga Center previously. On the Mindbody App, it should appear under the Pricing section. Select on Classes, then select Group Classes and it should appear as an option to select with the rest of the Group Classes.

From the Shine Yoga Mindbody Page it is under the Online Store tab on the far right corner, then select Series and Memberships, and then select Group Classes. The New Student Monthly Unlimited should appear here if you have not purchased previously from us or attended classes.

Unlike the Regular Monthly Unlimited, this is a one-month only pass. It does not roll-over. If you would like to sign up for our Regular Monthly Unlimited Contract, you will need to purchase that package after your 1-month trial expires.
