    Cool organisation which consists in


    We are going to have a weekly yoga lesson for three weeks and then no lessons for two weeks and again class for three weeks etc.

    Does this sentence make sense, please?

    "We are going to try a new organisation which will consist in having a two-week break every three weeks".

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    Re: organisation which consists in

    "Organisation" doesn't work. Try "arrangement" or "system".
    We say "consist of​", not "in".
    However, in your piece, I would use "... which will involve having ..."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
