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!

If you are interested in the Work Exchange Program, please fill out the work exchange application 1 month prior to the end of the current session (May 1, August 1 and December 1), and drop it off in person. Folks currently in the program are given first option to keep their shift. Selected applicants will be notified via email before the start of a session. Please resubmit once a year to keep our waitlist up-to-date.

Thank you for your interest!


Our Work Exchange Program runs in 3 sessions per year, with time off for holidays:

Work Exchangers commit to a 2- or 2.5-hour desk shift, and receive free unlimited classes for the duration of each session.
