Is it possible to run tabs for customers for ongoing services?

I’ve skimmed the User Guide PDF (very nice guide btw) but I didn’t see anything like what I’m looking to do listed. 

Magento is set up to keep track of orders/inventory and send out a notice if inventory gets low, but is it possible to flip the model?

For example, if I’m running a yoga studio (I’m not, but if I were...) and I wanted customers to create an account and prepay $75, each time they attend a class, I would decrement their account $15.  When their account gets to, say $15, an email is sent out to the customer notifying them their account is low. 

At this point they’d simply log on to my Magneto-powered site and prepay another set amount.

Is it possible to do this sort of thing in Magento?  Is this functionality already there and I’ve missed it somewhere? 

Thanks kindly!

Magento doesn’t currently run subscription services out-of-the-box.  This would require major hard coding to accomplish.  There are free software scripts out there that you could integrate that would make this easier for you such a phpcoin.
