Posts Tagged ‘Yoga on a budget’

I’ve been thinking (like everyone else) quite a bit about the state of the economy with everything that’s happening on Wall Street and prices of everyday commodities – from gas to bread – rising more and more. What I’ve been thinking is that while some items are luxuries (make life nice) and other necessities (make life possible) where should you draw the line to cut back? From experience I know that my gym membership at Equinox was not worth $150.00 out of my pocket – I’d personally rather put that money towards yoga. Others I’ve heard say they’ve cut back on both to find cheaper alternatives like the gym at their local Y or donation based yoga like Yoga for the People. Another yoga blog, Om Shanti, had a post Why is Yoga so Expensive back in February, “[Yoga is] about a lifestyle–a lifestyle of good health and wealth–that requires a person to have a considerable amount of money if he/she wants a taste of it.” The great thing about the post is that it generated a lot of comments from both sides of the coin.

In light of all of this talk about money and the cost of yoga I’ve decided to lower the cost of the Om La La Vinyasa Weekend Retreat we’re holding in November as the response I’m getting isn’t that people aren’t interested but rather that it’s too costly. I hear ya! So I’ve done what I can to cut back on costs without sacrificing anything major and passes the savings straight on to you. And not to worry, it still includes accommodation for 2 nights, 5 meals and 4 yoga classes. Hopefully now we’ll get some takers!!

Namaste!
