Our classes are by donation…
Please take a moment to look through this page which explains our contribution system and answers some questions often asked.
We use a simple cash system with a suggested donation of $12 per class.
What does this mean to the students, teachers and studio?
Yoga is an ancient practice and system that helps the individual to reach their highest spiritual potential; aligning body, mind and soul. In addition to the various asana practices that keep us healthy in body and mind, yoga includes a spiritual element that extends to our personal life beyond the mat. It is our commitment here at Gilbert Yoga to teach and live yoga to the best of our abilities – and pass this from our heart to yours. Through living this philosophy, Gilbert Yoga has joyfully served the community since 2002.
The suggested donation is $12 per class; we intend to make yoga available to everyone, no matter their pocketbook. Your considerate contribution ensures the continued growth of Gilbert Yoga, allowing a variety of classes to be offered for the community. The donation system provides an opportunity for the student to show their appreciation for the teacher and allows the student to practice the reciprocity of giving and receiving. We invite you to please give kindly to your teachers so they can continue to share their gifts.
How does this payment system work at the studio?
Students will simply sign-in and place their donation in the box prior to the start of class. Please be aware that the teachers are compensated directly from that day’s donation. If you feel that you have under-donated one day and then plan to over-donate another day to make up for it, please do this with the same teacher only.
We appreciate your willingness to assist in our efforts to keep costs low by using cash only, which in-turn allows us to continue to offer affordable classes for all. We understand that students may not always have cash, and on these rare occasions we will accept a personal check.
We thank you from the brightest place in our hearts for your Presence at Gilbert Yoga. We realize that without You and the Teachers, Gilbert Yoga would not be the Sacred Space that it is. We aspire to continue to serve our community in the best way possible and for the highest good for ALL.
Thank you, Blessings, and Namaste
