Do you sell gift cards online?

We do! You can purchase digital gift cards here 

The Digital Gift Cards are a digital code that is emailed to you once we've fulfilled the order (this usually happens within 24 hours). To give to your giftee, you can either forward the email with the code, or click on "View gift card" at the bottom of the email to go to a page you can print out to give them. The digital cards only work on our online webstore. Choose this option if you anticipate your giftee wanting to sign up for classes.

Why isn't my gift card working online?

We have two different kinds of gift cards—a plastic card that only works in our brick and mortar store, and a digital code kind that is emailed to you and works on our webstore. If you have a plastic card and are wanting to place an order online with it, we will need to convert it to the digital code kind before you can use it online. Email us at with the code on the back of your card and our web team will be happy to do this for you.
