Some of the hot yoga studios in my area have a minimum of $7 for the pay what you can classes….so I think $7 or $8 would be reasonable!  I do think $5 is a little low, but if that is what you can afford then that is ok!  Just check to see if there is a minimum expected donation in case!

$5 is fine.  Part of the yoga philosophy is that yoga should be accessible to everyone… so, when a studio offers a “pay what you can” class, they genuninely don’t expect you to pay as much as a full price class.  The teachers are essentially offering this class as a form of community service.

You can donation what ever you can. The idea behind donation days is that its a chance for people to pay what they can and help out a local charity. You should never feel guilty about sticking to your budget. If there is one thing I have learned from yoga its to be ok with were you are today and if you can only give $5 today dont let anyone else “guilt” you into thinking otherwise. All the best with you practice!

$5 is fine. That’s what I pay (I pay a monthly fee and with the frequency I go, that’s what it works out to per class).
