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?
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,
Owner and CEO

Thanks for all this info. Quite a bit going on. Since no virtual classes next week, might you give me studio privileges for that week since I am a sustainable, unlimited member? Would be nice to do some yoga during that week!!
we can certainly work something out, Fred! I’ll shoot you an email 🙂
