The staff and instructors of The Frida Center for Fibromyalgia are delighted to announce the following:
Effective July 1, 2012,
all classes offered by The Studio
will be free to all participants.
It has always been our goal to open participation at The Studio to as many of those living with fibromyalgia as possible, and we are working hard to eliminate the barriers that inhibit such participation. Offering free programming is fundamental to our mission.
As part of this transition, we are doing away with the Mindbody computer system that we have been using to manage registration, payment, and participation. Classes will be first-come, first-served – just show up. The first time you visit us, you will be asked to complete some simple paperwork, and after that you’ll simply sign your name when you arrive. That’s all.
Activity schedules will still be available online and at The Frida Center. You’ll still be able to reach us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (503) 477-9616, x112. We’re removing barriers to participation, not creating new ones.
We do know that for many of you, there are physical obstacles that prevent you from joining us here. Please know that we’re working diligently to get online programming up and running, and we hope to have our first offerings available online this winter.
If you have purchased sessions of our programs that you have not used yet, don’t worry: your money will be refunded. Checks will be sent out to all those with unused sessions during the first week of July.
Thank you for all your support. We are so grateful to be part of such a vibrant community, and we look forward to serving you all for many, many years to come.
