Types of Membership
To participate in our classes and to help support our centre, there are 4 membership options:
By donation (dana) into our donation bowl – suggested amount $15-20.
Allows participation in all our regular classes for a 10–week period. Many classes are structured in 10-week blocks, so this is a good way to sample a full course.
Adults: $125/10 weeks
Students/Seniors: $75/10 weeks
Adults: $520 Paid in Full or $560 paid in 4 installments (i.e. $140 x 4 = $560)
Students/Seniors: $300 Paid in Full or $320 paid in 4 installments (i.e. $80 x 4 installments = $320)
Allows "out-of-towners" to support our centre from a distance and receive the benefits of membership – $75/yr + $15-20/class attended.
The annual period for our "Full" and "Associate" Memberships begins from the date you you sign up and expires in one year.
If someone is unable to attend classes for a month or more because of an extended absence or illness, they may ask to have their membership and classes put "on hold" for that period.
Children under 18
Children (under 18) of "Full" Members share their parent's privileges at no extra cost. However when they turn 18 they must purchase their own independent membership.
