Student loyalty is important for yoga schools to survive. Western yoga studios and ashrams stay alive by taking in money for tuition. They don't have charitable trusts to support them. Students who don't support the local studios run out of places to go as these studios will open with a dream, but close quickly as students jump from one studio to the next for cheap or free yoga lessons from desperate teachers. This is good for established studios because they have core groups of dedicated students. It also gives yoga teachers a picture that now is not the time to open a new studio, instead new teachers freelance by teaching in schools, dance studios, hospitals, and condo complexes.
