Namaskar Dear Ones,
Most Yoga studios are heart centered businesses. Consider the way you relate to your students. The student / teacher relationship is based upon high standards, mutual trust, safety, and ethics.
However, the lease, utilities, insurance, taxes, and any other operating costs do not pay for themselves. Every Yoga studio must remain profitable to exist. If a studio or ashram has a wealthy benefactor there will never be financial problems.
In western societies, wealthy benefactors who support ashrams by making financial contributions are extremely rare. Every Yoga studio could use a charitable trust to help with operating costs, but let's get a reality check - student tuition fees pay for the bulk of our overhead costs.
Therefore, business ethics are a part of keeping a Yoga studio alive. You can paint the picture with any colors you like, but a business runs on profit, and charities do not run without contributions.
