We understand how difficult it can be to find an inexpensive way to renew, so the Workhouse is now extending a 20% discount on all weekly class registrations for public school teachers. Let us help you earn points the fun, artistic way by enrolling in a weekly Workhouse Arts Center class today!

Today, there is renewed interest in age old traditions such as yoga and meditation. No longer viewed with suspicion, mind-body programs are now established at prestigious medical schools in the United States and around the world. Classes in this program follow continuous eight week sessions, and most classes may be joined at any time- no need to wait for the next session to begin! There are classes for all ages, and since most classes are self-paced they are appropriate for all skill levels. New classes and workshops are always being added and the schedule may change every eight weeks.
