Taxes and Tadasana Don't Mix!

We're excited and pleased to announce that New York State has recently decided New York City yoga studios specifically will not be subject to sales tax (if a studio offers pilates or any other type of class, then all are subject to sales tax), on that grounds that "instruction in yoga is not an exercise activity because yoga generally includes within its teachings not simply physical exercise, but activities such as meditation, spiritual chanting, breathing techniques, and relaxation skills." 

We are so glad that so many studios were able to work together to do good! Thank you to all those at Yoga for New York and at participating studios for all your hard work.
