OUR CO-OP MODEL
We are a Cooperative effort by a group of people coming together with the common interest of yoga and community. Every teacher pays rent to use the space and is 100% responsible for the growth of their own individual brand and the studio as a whole. This means that you pay the teacher directly and everything they make, they take home. This is the only model in the yoga world that supports the teachers in a way that they can actually make a living rather than a struggle. Please honor the work your teacher does. Pay them a respectful amount for what they offer. This sort of work is indispensable.
Sliding Scale Payment
Gather operates on a sliding scale payment system. All classes are a required payment of somewhere between $10-20 per person, per class. Cash / Check / Venmo preferred. You decide what's fair or what you can afford, and pay your teacher at the door when they check you in.
If you would like to purchase Gather merchandise, please have the teacher assist in that transaction.
Our vision is to offer our services in a way that feels accessible and sustainable for all people. This isn't a "corporate, get rich" model. This is the "community" model and scaled for the average, honest human.
If you cannot afford to pay our fee for class, please just talk to the teacher. We will never turn anyone away as everyone deserves peace of mind and practice, but we do need and appreciate the support to sustain our business and our very special model.
Thank you for your understanding as our teachers strive to earn an honest wage in Encinitas, California.
