This is an evolving list of organizations, studios, and practitioners (from yoga to reiki to massage and more) in Durham that offer either pay-what-you-can/donation-based classes, free classes, or sliding-scale services. Sliding-scale means that you as the client may choose from a range of prices or contribute based on what feels financially comfortable for you.
