Astanga Yoga really impressed me with the amount of Drop-In class pack options they offer, all at such affordable prices too! 30 classes may sound like a lot, but for yoga fanatics who want the flexibility to drop in whenever’s convenient for their schedules, $12.67 a class is such a fantastic find. Astanga offers drop-in classes Mondays-Fridays usually from 6:00am until well into the evening (ranges from 6:15pm-9:00pm) and although their weekend class times are limited, it does not mean they lack in quality.
