Good People doing Good Things

The sum of a person’s actions in this and previous states of existence is viewed as deciding their fate in future existences. Our Karmi Yoga program exists to provide a mutual exchange of services to individuals who want to be more involved with our yoga community and studio. The benefit for those individuals selected is unlimited vigorous and gentle yoga, discounts on some workshops, training, and retail, in exchange for service around our studio. Through customer service, organization, and maintaining the Inlet environment so that it is clean and inviting.

Inlet Yoga’s Work Exchange Family

You will find our Karma Yoga Program is about more than just unlimited yoga, it is about connection, gratitude, and being part of a larger family. Inlet’s Karma Yoga program is an enormously valued part of our community.


Our program is for those who are passionate about yoga, our community and want to be a part of the Inlet Team on a more involved level. Each Karmi selected will assist in creating the studio environment and experience with every student. The Inlet Karmi family strives to cultivate a culture of learning, appreciation, and community through customer interaction.
