LAYA was founded as a not-for-profit educational organization in 1995. We were the only place in the Brainerd Lakes Area to be offering yoga classes in those days. Yoga was not nearly as “mainstream” in the late 1990s as it is today, and we struggled to survive those first few years, with lots of help from our friends who found our classes to be worthwhile and beneficial.
One of the ways we survived that time was by offering LAYA Memberships. Memberships were paid by community donors to help us survive and begin to thrive as yoga started to build in popularity.
COVID-19 has left us with many challenges to overcome, including two mandated studio closings. To help us survive, we are asking our community to become Member Donors.
LAYA Membership Levels
$15 keeps us alive for about a day
$60 keeps us alive for about four days
$100 keeps us alive for about a week
$400 keeps us alive for about a month
Memberships are a donation to LAYA, and can be claimed on your state (but not federal) tax returns. (The reason for the state-not-federal situation is because LAYA is registered as a Minnesota non-profit, but does not have 501(c)(3) status.) We need about $400/month for rent, phone, web page, business software, manager and teacher dues, and a few other expenses.

To have the best experience, we recommend wearing comfortable clothing that is easy to move in. Be prepared to be barefoot (not required, but optimal). Bring your own mat if you have one; if not, we have plenty at the studio for you to use. Along with mats, we have many props, Props, PROPS!
