why a sliding scale business?

A sliding scale business model is rare – but I choose to believe it’s still a wise build when engineered well.

In a sliding scale, either the business sets the criteria for the rate the client is charged, or the client chooses the rate they wish to pay.

I have chosen the latter option.

Since I am trusting you to self-select, I ask that you take responsibility for that choice. I don’t need any “advice” or criticism about the structure itself.

You can trust me that I’ve done the math correctly. 🙂

My Membership page hosts a pretty thorough explanation and provides multiple options for participating with Little Switch. I always tell interested parties to make sure to read it carefully before committing.

If the implications of the sliding scale is too stressful for you and you don’t want to apply for work scholarship, you can always pay the regular per-class fee.

I also gently remind anyone reading here that there are so many other yoga options out there. Little Switch won’t be for everyone!

Given you want to read on, here’s what you need to know:

Little Switch’s sliding scale lets you self-select your level, trusting that you’ve read through the material and made the choice right for you. Please do not reach out to criticize or “advise” me on the conditions therein. 

I will be regularly sharing the expenses and efforts of running Little Switch through email and social media. This is not only for my sake and for Little Switch’s sake, but to better inform the community I’ve seen too many wonderful projects fall apart due to the burn-out of the facilitator, who does not share the load.

Little Switch does have a corporate mentality. Little switch has a community mentality, and a collective set-up. That sounds well and good but it can be difficult for some people to get their head around. Some people always suspect some kind of egregious profit motive. That’s just not the case here. My mission is to provide a clean, reliable, electric yoga space and I am more transparent than most businesses in how I do this.

Please remember that creating this space and organizing this space takes a great deal of effort and considerable expertise. I am not in need of business advising at this time.

Thank you so much for your careful consideration and ALL forms of support you provide!
