Salty Dog Yoga offers a sliding scale tuition for yoga teacher training. The sliding scale is a tool that allows for a product or service to be obtained at multiple price points based on the circumstances of the purchaser.  For sliding scale to work, it relies on truthfulness and accountability.  We trust applicants to be honest.  There are limited opportunities in the sustainer and community rates.  

$2,800 Supporter Rate

This is the true cost of the training and if no sliding scale existed this would be the rate.  If you are able to pay for "wants" and spend little time worried about securing necessities in your life, you have economic privilege and power in our community. This price is for you.

$2,400 Sustainer Rate

If you are struggling to conquer debt or build savings or move away from paycheck to paycheck living but have access to steady income and are not spending most of your time thinking about meeting basic needs such as food, shelter, medical care, child care, etc., you belong here. If you, however, can ask others for financial support, such as family members, partners, or friends, please consider using those personal resources before you use the resources of the sliding scale and limit opportunities for others.

$1,500 Community Rate

This represents an honest acknowledgment by the teacher and practitioner that there are folks whose economic circumstances would prevent them from being a part of classes if there was not be a deliberate opportunity made for them to access services at a cost that is reflective of their economic realities. If you struggle to maintain access to needs such as health care, housing, food, child care, and are living paycheck to paycheck or are in significant debt, you belong here.

Sliding scale information has been adapted and shared from Alexis J. Cunningfork's website of Worts & Cunning.
