We are proud to present Alkalign! We know change isn’t always easy and want to be as transparent about the transition as possible.
Q: What is Alkalign?
A: Alkalign represents dynamic balance. We are about balancing the mind, body, and soul by offering highly effective and targeted strength, alignment and nutrition training.
Q: What does the name Alkalign mean?
A: We took the word Alkaline, which represents water, well-grounded, balance, and also refers to the ideal pH state of your body, and combined it with our passion for alignment to form Alkalign.
Q: What happened to the previous studio brand?
A: TDM is still an operating franchise in the barre industry. Erin’s contract expired and she chose to leave the franchise to provide more to the communities she’s been personally serving for over six years. You will be amazed by what is on the horizon!
Q: What is going to be different?
A: Alkalign will continue to offer the barre and cardio interval classes you know and love. We are modifying the formats and exercises to make the most of your workout time and to continually challenge and change your body. Moreover, we will be evolving beyond the barre with a nutrition program, on-site grab-and-go healthy food options, and additional class formats for a holistic, integrated health experience.
Q: Are my packages transferable?
A: Yes, all of your information with our external software provider MINDBODY will remain the same. Your login and password will remain the same. Additionally, we are eliminating expiration dates on package purchases so if you have previously purchased classes that have expired, you will now be able to use them!
Q: How do I book a class? Is there an app?
Q: Will there still be childcare?
A: Yes! Please refer to the studio schedules for classes with childcare classes.
Q: I heard there is a family pass? Can I bring my husband to class?
A: Core Members can add a family member in their immediate household for an additional $100/month/person.* The family membership ends if/when the primary Core Membership ends unless that family member wants to assume the primary Core Member rate. *Limit 2 per household.
Q: Can I take classes at both Menlo Park and Los Altos under the same package?
A: Yes, the Menlo Park and Los Altos locations are still affiliated.
Q: Are there going to be classes about food?
A: Yes, we are rolling out a nutrition program, Alkalign Nourish, which will include workshops on food, among other things.
Q: Do I have to meet with a nutritionist before I take class?
A: No. Alkalign Nourish is an integral part of what we offer at Alkalign as a part of our holistic approach to health and wellness. However, participation is not required to take class nor do you need to take class to participate in Alkalign Nourish.
Q: I’ve never done barre classes because I love yoga. Are you offering a yoga class?
A: Currently Alkalign is not offering its own “yoga” class, but there are many elements of yoga incorporated into the classes. In the months to come we will be broadening our class offerings, which may include additional elements of yoga.
Q: Is Alkalign going to open more studios?
A: Yes, that is the plan!
Q: What are the plus/minus signs for?
A: The +/- represents a charge. The charge you get from taking care of your body with good nutrition and high quality exercise.
