You're not sounding silly at all!
My partner Liz has a successful practice and ds not have a studio of her own. While it means she has to lug around all the props she needs from location to location, we don't have to worry about that overhead.
How much she is charged for the space she teaches in varies with the arrangement. It helps that she is teaching chair yoga almost exclusively, because people like to support her efforts to take yoga to those that can't practice at a typical studio.
At the yoga studio where she is affiliated she has to pay a pretty significant cut to the studio. However, the storefront and advertising they do brings in students she'd never reach.
Her private students naturally don't charge for her to come to their home.
The holistic health care facility she works with charges just about enough to compensate for the electricity she's using because they support her cause and like the exposure. And the church she teaches at dsn't charge anything because it benefits their members.
One thing about operating on your own with a shstring budget, though, is that it ends up being a lot of work, and growing the business is slow. But if you don't want a strong association with any one studio and you don't have much capitol to invest, then it is something to consider.
