Simply Be Simply Yoga views yoga as a system of ethics which also includes intense physical and spiritual practices. Practicing the physical postures without ethics and spiritual exploration is not yoga but acrobatics. Our payment structure is intended to reflect our commitment to service, ethics, social justice, and personal transformation.
Our Pay What You Will model has a two fold purpose: one, to allow anyone who so desires to engage in a yoga practice; and, two, to create community.
How does this model create community? Community is created when we need each other, when we share our gifts and feel mutual appreciation and obligation. Those with more will help those who are currently struggling by paying more for the same class. And since we never know when the wheels may turn, our helping someone else today will come back to us when we are in need. This wheel of giving / receiving creates appreciation, which in turn creates community, connection, and mutual support.
