Equity Pricing Program
We are South Asian, BIPOC, and queer-owned small business striving to ensure that everyone who wants to practice yoga and other embodied healing practices can.
Want to support this program? Go here to donate.
In addition to offering by-donation options and memberships that greatly reduce the cost of drop-in classes (see our rates page for more information), we also offer equity pricing. This program attempts to push back against income inequity, generally, and the ways that Black and Indigenous people, other People of Color, queer and trans folks and people with disabilities are disproportionately and systematically impacted by barriers to healthcare and wellness services, specifically. Our students who pay full price and who donate to our Community Fund create capacity for others to access yoga, and through this we create a system for collective care.
Who this Program Centers
Our intention is that equity pricing primarily benefits people who hold marginalized identities (Black/Indigenous/POC, disabled, larger-bodied, low-income, LGBTQIA+, etc.). Wondering if this program is right for you? Check out the Green Image Bottle self-assessment tool below. This assessment was created by Alexis J. Cunningfolk who has helpful insights on sliding scale pay structures and the difference between financial sacrifice versus hardship. We encourage you to check out Alexis’ website to learn more.
Relate mostly to the bottle on the right? This program is for you!
Relate mostly to the bottle in the middle? This program is also for you however we ask that you pay higher on the sliding scale range. The lowest on the sliding scale range is reserved for folks who hold multiple marginalized identities and who relate most to what is described in the bottle on the right.
If you relate mostly to the bottle on the left then this program is likely not for you and we encourage you to check out our class cards and memberships, which offer reduced rates compared to the drop-in cost.
If you don't see where you fit in this model or are experiencing outlying circumstances that cause a need for equity pricing, please reach out and we'll help assess.
Equity Pricing Options
Sliding scale: $75 - $169. See self assessment above to determine where you fall on the scale. Pay in full or in installments (up to four). This card is valid for in-person & livestream classes and expires in 4 months.
