Yoga by Donation
In response to tough economic times, more yoga studios are offering “yoga by donation” classes to help new or ongoing students who are financially challenged. One New England studio offers 100% of its schedule on a pay-as-you-can basis. Bob Vaccaro of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, launched Yoga by Donation on January 1, 2009, “to provide quality yoga classes in an exceptional setting to people of all levels of physical and financial abilities. . . . We have no set or even suggested fees; all donations can be anonymous, and all are appreciated.”
Fifteen instructors teach at the studio, which offers 31 classes a week. The studio welcomes people who have lost jobs, have physical challenges or are just beginning a yoga practice.
