Look: Most musicians and artists can't afford to do their work free either. Have you ever met a hard working musician who was homeless? I have! They play and beg for money on the street.
The free yoga mentality comes from people who see yoga teachers as good hearted fools. Anyone who asks them to pay for anything is an enemy. They would steal from you, if they could get away with it. They always want something for nothing. You may want to consider moving your yoga studio to a nicer location, when your lease is up.
