Hi Debbie,

I did send you a PM, but did not see your question about exiting class gracefully. That is a tough one! :) I always chat with my students if they have any yoga related questions and then start picking up like I am going to leave. Then I will simply say, "See you all next time- have a great week" and leave. If some one has not paid me, I will look around (playing dumb) and say to to that person, "You paid me, right?" as if I really thought they did. They will immediately say something like "Oh gosh, I forgot - here it is." I am sure your students do not mean to drag out the class and not pay you, but they are caught up in their own socializing. To some, this method may seem ridiculous, but I feel funny coming out and asking for money in a blunt way.

However, if this is causing you anxiety you could handle it like this, or have the students pay up front which some of mine do. They come in and lay the money in a certain spot each week. When you start a new class, I would suggest you start with that protocol and you will never have that problem again.

As for renting cheap space, I do not have an answer for that one - perhaps someone else will.

Have a great day!

Namaste,

Jeann
