how does a donation-based yoga studio work?

People often ask, “What does all donation mean?” “What should I pay?”

Let me try to help you out:

*If you are unable to cover your basic living expenses: $0

*If you regularly drop $5 for a fancy coffee or eat half your meals out: $5-10

*If you plan to spend $10 or more on drinks and cigs after class: $10-15

*If you regularly splurge on unnecessary random crap and can still comfortably cover  your living expenses: $20-infinity

*Most studios are $20 for a drop-in.

You might also wonder, “What do the donations pay for?”

*All of your donation goes directly to your teacher.

*Your teacher pays a small fee to the collective:

*Those fees support:

*Keeping the lights and heat on.

*Toilet paper and clean hand towels.

*Mats and props.

*The new patio out back for warm weather hanging after class.

*Keeping this studio open. Period. We do not receive money from the state and/or grants.

*Good karma. I opened the studio with the dream that donation-based yoga could self-sustain and thrive in Madison. I appreciate you all helping us make that dream come true.

We welcome ALL.

We never ever question how much you are able to contribute.

 peace and love, Gail
