Imagine walking into a yoga studio. The space is simple. The yoga instructors run their own business, taking cash in a basket. This is how some yoga studios began in California. No frills. Just yoga. And community. This was our inspiration. We decided to create a currently unique model for our area. A model of service that is focused on providing the yoga teachers with an opportunity to run their own business. The collective supports the teachers through modern conveniences such as a website and social media. The teachers have a choice on how to collect registration and create an exchange with their students. The teachers can then focus on providing an experience that is true to his or her calling and gifts.
