Work Exchange

Studio 34 was built, in part, by the community. Over the course of a year, numerous volunteers helped paint, clean, tear down walls, and build new ones. In return for their generous spirit, we offered free yoga classes.

Some things haven’t changed: we’re still operating on community power. In exchange for free classes, work-exchangers help us with everything from manning the front desk and cleaning up to website maintenance and computer repair. We love to barter, and it helps keep yoga and movement classes affordable for everyone.

In a wonderfully unexpected twist, it also fosters a sense of community. We’ve had many people share stories of the friendships they’ve developed through volunteering at the studio. And we are endlessly grateful: a big thank you to all our work exchangers, past, present, and future!
