Are all sessions on Arva Yoga free to attend? Live classes are always free. We want to spread the true meaning of yoga and we truly want all this knowledge to be accessible to all people...keeping our sessions free is one way we have leveled the playing field! When you book a session, you are never asked for a credit card or payment info...never! For some sessions we may cancel if there is less than 3 people signed up. So, share this organization with family and friends so that all can take advantage of these offerings.
