Free Classes at The Frida Center!

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 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.

  1. Wow, this is amazing….I know of no other place that would do such a thing! The Frida Center is THE BEST! Thank you for really caring =)

  2. WOW !!! What an amazing surprise this is. This MUCH more than made my day, as I would love to attend some classes, yet have very limited resources to do so. THANK YOU to all that made this possible. KUDOS !!!

  3. This is ground-breaking, truly amazing news … what a unique and beautiful concept! I never knew this “fundamental goal” was in the works – Frida Center, you guys “so rock”! Thank you, thank you, thank you! This has truly opened the doors for me. I can’t wait to get started on my new-and-improved daily life – thanks to all of you.

  4. Awesome! Thank you so much! This is huge and now to hear you’re also working on bringing classes to us online by this winter is truely amazing! If I could send you all a hug through the internet I would! Again…thank you from the bottom of my heart!

  5. Thank you so much. This almost brings me to tears. Anything that can help at no cost is a blessing. As someone one with FM (and I’m sure the rest of you can relate), FM related costs add up very fast. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  6. I find myself almost speechless. After dealing with Fibromyalgia for some 20 years, and all that entails, I find this offer amazing and so appreciated! While I am one who can afford these classes the fact that the Center has created these services at no cost to those of us who have had to struggle to be heard all these years, is a confirmation of all we deal with each day. It DOES bring tears to my eyes to feel my life is valuable to all at the Center to work to help us live meaningful lives! Thank you doesn’t begin to say it.
