For all classes, we honor the option for you to pay what you can based on your today. You decide, based on your resources, the value of our service relative to what you can afford.
To make this system work, we all have to be honest and transparent. To our end, we offer you the following:
Teachers Pay: We believe it is 100% possible and necessary to pay teachers regardless of the business model. Our teachers are always paid.
Studio Overhead: The studio overhead amounts to approximately $6,500/month, including a base salary for every teacher above the certified living wage. As we do not sell clothes, mats or other items that we think contribute to a toxic yoga environment, we are dependent on you, the students, to make this all work.
Pay It Forward: Any excess received over our base expenses outlined above will be put towards a pay it forward account. We know that some days, there are folks whose "Pay What You Can" is zero and that is when we, the community of EVERYBODY can step forward and support. Self-care is usually the first to go and the last thing that should go when funds are tight.
