@HelloTheFuture My school allowed members of the public to audit classes, and the town was quite popular as a retirement destination as a result. I believe there was a fee charged--nothing huge, but it wouldn't have been free.
yayyyy thanks for posting! so cool to hear everyone's voice.
@Samantha @Samantha I worked as a manager at a yoga studio for a while (and was barely paid--$300 a month plus unlimited free classes) and can confidently say that none of the teachers were making a living from teaching. Quite a few were supported by their husbands, one had created a software company that got bought out and was set for life, and the others had other full-time jobs and taught at night or on weekends.
