Thanks for your comments.

In my case, you are preaching to the choir. It gets a little more complicated with a vinyasa practice, but for those who are either (mostly) vinyasa yoga teachers or who are not yet part of this choir, and who may feel pangs of guilt not supporting "their local yoga teacher", I do have one example. [Many more, but I do not want to take up too much space here.]

There are certain community classes I might take. I might pay less for a self-sequenced community class near me—wherein YOU, the student, provide the moves with NO assistance from the teacher (who does her own practice ... this is NOT Mysore style ashtanga)

If I am not going to pay at least a minimum amount (I could tell by the teacher's grimace as she saw what I put in the pot just what that figure is ...), I DON'T BOTHER SHOWING UP.

I've a home practice. I am not taking food from anybody, because I can barely survive ... charity begins at home ... and I support yoga teachers, who—as I said before—PUBLISH, RECORD, and FILM; and if I could afford the streaming speed, maybe also charge for their streaming and downloads in the way that you do.

Yes! There are no yoga freeloaders here, just home yoga practitioners. The home practitioner is supporting a yoga teacher same as if they paid some downtown (New York City) not-yet-world-class teacher $25 USD for his class ...
