Namaskar Yogananda,

My pleasure.

Flat rate is the base rate or guaranteed rate of pay for the teacher. For example the flat rate may be $30. ($30 is the least a teacher will make in a class.) F = $30

Let's say that X=$1

The class has 18 students today. That is 3 students above our point of equalibrium or S=3

The teacher will be paid $30 + (3 x 1) = $33

The formula is; F + SX = Teacher Pay

The above may not work for all studios, because we are guaranteeing that the teacher will make a certain amount for there time regardless of the number of students, but we cannot give more until we have paid our bills.

Our studio is heated. It was designed for Hot Yoga, however, we do not allow our studio to get as hot as Bikram or traditional Hot Yoga. We have classes of different lengths, 60 minutes classes are only heated to 80 degrees. 75 and 90 minute classes are heated 90-95 degrees.

Our classes are 'Heinz 57' or American in nature, in that their heritage/lineage is from multiple systems. We offer traditional Hot Yoga sequencing and Vinyasa.

We welcome teachers to teach from any tradition provided they teach an asana based class and are knowledgeable about heat management. We also require all interested teachers to 'audition' (20 minute class including savasana).
