502 Power Yoga to switch to Walla on April 28th, 2022

The past two years tore our yoga studio down to the studs and even shattered our foundation. On the plus side, we have had the opportunity to rebuild from the ground up, eliminating and changing the structures, partnerships, and processes that no longer serve us. We realized that one of the biggest challenges was our booking and billing system, Mindbody. After a LOT of research, we’ve found a powerful new software partner for our yoga studio, and we can’t wait to introduce you. 

Enter Walla! Walla will be our new scheduling, booking, video-on-demand, and communication system working behind the scenes to make your yoga class booking process as seamless as possible.  

What does this mean for you?

502 power yoga on demand library preview

New way to book yoga classes: Our schedule on our website will have a clean, modern, and easy-to-use interface, and you will use the Walla App (currently only available on iOS) to book classes, not the Mindbody App (if you download the app now; please note you won’t be able to do anything with it until we transfer accounts over on April 28). Android users: You can make a bookmark to our schedule webpage and use the mobile-friendly schedule on our website to book classes.

New On-Demand Library: We are REALLY excited about this… Our slick new library of virtual and recorded studio yoga classes will be easy to find on our website and easy to navigate. And easy-on-the-eyes to boot! All memberships (virtual, 4x, 8x, and All Access) will have unlimited access to our library.

An easy way to book a friend: When you book your yoga classes online, you’ll now have an option to “add a friend” at check out. AND our memberships will have guest passes built in that you’ll be able to easily share without having to contact the studio. We want to make it easy for you to share your love for 502 Power Yoga with a pal! 

Upgraded payment processing capabilities: Walla was built during the pandemic so its features are geared toward a fully contactless experience. We will be able to accept Apple Pay and more with the new system, but we will NOT accept any cash payments in-studio effective April 28th, 2022!

There are some more benefits that we’ll be unveiling over the summer—stay tuned!!!!

Our new software *should* be up and running April 28, and in the meantime, we are tidying up and packing to make the move seamless and simple with very little impact on YOU.

As soon as we hit GO you will receive another email with instructions to get started, so keep your eyes peeled! 

For now, continue booking as you always have… We can’t wait to see you in class!

Thanks for being a part of our community,

Closing Jeffersonville

Written by 502 Power Yoga owner, Cat Crawford, October 26, 2021

The talk of expanding 502py’s footprint began back in 2016. The obvious choice was somewhere on the East End, but after looking at multiple locations, and having a competitor open in the East End, we shifted our vision to other areas of town. I don’t remember how we settled on Southern Indiana, but it all made so much sense at the time: Very little competition, a big space, affordable rent, easy access to downtown Louisville, central to several SoIn towns, and GREAT PARKING. So in the Spring of 2017, we found ourselves signing a lease in Water Tower Square and preparing for our 2nd location.

There was a lot of excitement in the community. The team rallied behind getting everything ready.

We created a GREAT schedule, staffed up, ran promotions, had a great first class…

 And then it was a struggle.

Our teachers were used to teaching a packed room so it was odd to show up and teach for 1-3 people in those early days. We had our first no-show classes. It had been so easy in the Highlands!! We had to put in a LOT more effort to build our Southern Indiana community.

So we kept showing up.

And slowly but surely, our classes began to fill up.

We generated momentum and excitement through workshops, programs, trainings, and special events.

We packed the house with 80 yogis when Paige Elenson came to town.

And we had at least that many show up for our 2018 Personal Revolution Kickoff meeting. Were you there?

At the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020, we were FINALLY starting to gain real traction. We were seeing 20-30 people in some of our more popular classes. Things were finally looking up…

The Pandemic brought it all to a screeching halt.

And after nearly 20 months, it still hasn’t recovered.

We have some die-hard students in SoIn who show up day after day. I am grateful for their commitment to the practice, to each other, and to that space. You know who you are.

Karen, Niki, and Tina; a few of our die-hards

But not enough students are showing up to make ends meet. We simply cannot afford to keep this location open any longer.

Our last class at the Jeffersonville studio will be Tuesday, November 30th, at 6:00 PM.

To all of the students and team members who have shown up in that space over the last 4.5 years, THANK YOU.

We’ve seen friendships and connections blossom in this space.

An engagement occurred in the space (Becca and Joycie!)

We witnessed physical, mental, and spiritual transformations in over 2500 unique students.

One of our team members even had her water break while practicing in the space (TMI?)

That beautiful squishy floor has had over 70,000 bare feet pad across it.

God only knows how many handstands have been held on those walls.

Over 30,000 lavender towels have been placed at the top corner of yoga mats.

We are sad, yet hopeful for the future of 502PY’s Highlands and East End locations. I will leave you with the wise words of Semisonic:

“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.”

FAQ

We will be relocating our SoIn teachers to our Highlands and East End studios based on availability and demand.

What is the class schedule at Jeffersonville right now?

Check it out. Registration for classes opens 7 days in advance.

What do I do about my membership?

All of our monthly memberships are month-to-month at this time. They auto-renew on the date of purchase. You can check on your current renewal date by clicking here. Memberships have always, and will continue to be, eligible at all of our locations. While we would love to keep you in the community, you can request a membership cancelation by following this link.

Can I get a refund?

We are not able to make cash refunds at this time. You have until November 30th to use any classes on your account at the Jeffersonville studio. And, as always, all class packs and memberships are eligible for use at ALL of our locations, so after November 30th, you can still visit us in the Highlands, East End, and virtually. Please email us if you have any questions. We can transfer your passes to another student if you are unable to use them for any reason.

How will this affect the Highlands and the East End locations?

Once Jeffersonville closes, there will be more resources to go around—time, energy, and money—which will be reinvested into our other locations. You will see new classes on the schedule and improvements to the facilities.

How can I help?

Jeffersonville Grand Re-Re-Re-Opening

Jeffersonville Grand Re-Re-Re-Opening

On May 10, 2017, we held our first class in our Jeffersonville studio. What a wild ride it has been! And we are THRILLED to announce that we’re coming back stronger and more resilient than ever the first week of June.

The June 2021 Jeffersonville Schedule is LIVE!

If you’re new to 502PY or haven’t been to see us in the past 6 months, you can get 30 days of unlimited yoga for $38. The package will activate upon your first visit, so you can try it at one of our other locations, or save it for when you’re ready for Jeffersonville.

Tips on getting into high demand classes

Tips on getting into high demand classes

We have a truly amazing problem: Our studio classes are selling out, and they’re selling out FAST. The thing is: There is almost always 1-2 spots open in every class! What can we do, and what can YOU do, to ensure everyone who wants to practice can?

1. We increased capacity.

We re-measured and re-taped our Highlands and East End studios. We are still meeting the social distancing requirements required by the state of Kentucky AND we were able to fit several more mats in each location! We hope that this change alone helps to meet the demand for our studio classes!

Be on the lookout for our capacity across studios increasing even more when we reopen Jeffersonville in June 😉

2. Get on the waitlist.

If you see your favorite class is already sold out, get on the waitlist! People’s schedules are constantly changing and we have seen that about 95% of people on the waitlist end up getting into a class. The likelihood increases the earlier you get on the list.

BUT! Please don’t add yourself to every waitlist just in case! Only put yourself on the waitlist if you intend on attending should a spot open.

Should your schedule change and you know you won’t be able to attend that class: Please cancel your waitlist reservation!

3. Become one of those spontaneous people

The way our waitlist works, the three hours before a class begins is like the wild west. If someone cancels in that window, yogis on the waitlist will not automatically be added to the class, which means anyone can snag the open spot, jumping in front of the waitlisted folks.

This isn’t ideal, but we haven’t figured out a better system to manage this, so it is what it is for now. Want to attend the epic 90-minute 7:30 AM Sunday class with the amazing Cat (who just so happens to be writing this)? Set your alarm for 6:30 and look to see if a spot is available. The likelihood of that happening is high. This goes for all early morning classes!

4. Tune in virtually

We are currently live-streaming most of our in-studio classes, so even if you can’t attend in person, you can be a part of the action from home! We have plenty of space virtually and would love to see you!

As always, let us know if you have any questions. You can comment below or email us at namaste@502poweryoga.com!
