Pole studio poll

No matter how many times I tell my students to bring yoga mats, half of them show up without them. It appears I have to provide yoga mats whether I like it or not. The only other choice is having students be in pain on the hard floors when we spend time doing floor warm ups and floorwork. It bothers me that I have to provide, maintain, clean and store yoga mats every day because I already have a full workload of running the business, cleaning the studio daily and teaching daily. Having one less things to worry about, like yoga mats, would really help. But it looks like some of the students have made the choice for me by ignoring my requests to bring them.

Should I be providing mats? Or should I let the girls suffer who ignore my request to bring them? Or should I sell them in the studio, forcing girls who ignore me to anty up an extra $25 or $30? I can have mats custom made with my logo for about $20 each. So I would need to sell them for $25 to $30 to make a profit.

Also, I used to provide free bottled water at pole parties in the last studio. But it involved a lot of lugging around heavy cases of water from the store to my studio, over and over again. I have now stopped that and included a note in the party confirmations that they need to bring water to stay hydrated. This request is being ignored as well and I'm hearing comments from the party goers like "I should have brought water." Would it be tacky to sell water for $1 per bottle in my studio?

Should I sell water for $1 per bottle?

It's tacky to sell water for so much, it's better not to sell it at all

Yes, $1 is a fair store price for water

Yoga mats

You told them in advance to bring mats, it's not your fault if they are suffering because they didn't bring them

Provide mats on loan, students just don't want to buy one and you don't want them to suffer
