What is The Insight Shop anyway?

The Insight Shop is a workshop and gathering space in downtown Vienna, Virginia that offers classes and events to help you deepen awareness of yourself, others, and the world; embrace your creativity; expand your knowledge; and commit to an authentic life.  Our classes fall into one or more of the categories of Life, Work, Spirit and Creativity. We’re always adding new classes and teachers, so check back often and sign up for our monthly Newsletter to get the latest!

Are your classes for me?

That depends…  Are you a curious human being between the ages of 10 and 110?  Do you like to learn new things and share ideas? Do you enjoy hanging out with interesting people? Then, yes.  These classes are for you! There really is something for everyone. And if you truly can’t find something that grabs you on our current class schedule, you can always contact us with a great idea for a new class you’d like to see!

Do you have classes for kids?

Yes! We’re currently offering three mindfulness classes for kids ages 10 and up, and will be adding new classes to the Youth Track throughout the year.  All new additions to the schedule will be announced in our Newsletter and on our Facebook page.

I am (or I know of) a fantastic teacher! How does someone offer a class there?

We appreciate your interest! We love to know about new and inspiring teachers and classes, and are always adding to the schedule. After looking at the website, if you still think it’s a good fit, send an email to info at insightshopva.com with some information.

As a general rule, we only contract with instructors who are certified or licensed in their teaching area. There are some exceptions though, so contact us and we can chat about it.

Do I need to register in advance, or can I show up the day of?

Website registration closes 24 hours before the start of a class or workshop. If you would like to attend and have missed this deadline, please contact the teacher directly to see if there is still space available. A lot of planning goes into each class, and often materials are provided for each student, so please sign up as early as you can so the teacher can be prepared.

What is your refund policy?

It happens…  Sometimes you just can’t make it to that great thing you signed up for.  If you let us know 2 weeks or more in advance, you’ll receive a full refund.  One to two weeks in advance and you’ll receive a 50% refund.  We aren’t able to refund your payment with less than one week’s notice, so please check your calendar carefully before signing up!

Is The Insight Shop available to rent to outside groups?

Yes. We have two classrooms available for rent. Priority goes to our scheduled classes, so contact us at info at insightshopva.com to check on pricing and availability.
