We welcome 6 new  RSC Yoga Teachers and their community – we are so glad to have you here at RSC yoga Studio.

Welcome to MINDBODY: Our New Online Yoga Booking System

You can now use RSC’s new registration system MindBody to book your Yoga classes in advance of arriving – so you know you have a spot in the class! You can also purchase our yoga class packs and monthly passes online.

To create/access your MindBody profile, click here which is RSC’s Yoga page. Click “Book” for any class (even if you’re not registering for it), and you will be prompted to select “Need New password” (if you need a new password). The email address to use, is the one you gave us initially for our old registration software.

As of today, you can pick up your new MindBody Card at RSC (featured in image above). Here’s the process we will now be using with these RSC Yoga Cards:

1. Pick up your RSC Yoga Card at Front Desk, and keep it with you in your wallet.
2. Before class starts, leave RSC Yoga Card at the top of your mat for the yoga teacher to pick up.
3. At end of class, pick up your RSC Yoga Card in card holder right outside your Yoga Room.
4. Bring home with you.
5. Repeat! 🙂

This way, you won’t need to stop at the RSC Front Desk before each class!

We know you will love this new MindBody registration system, which is best in the yoga industry!
