We share Space!
To inquire about room availability please read the following details and fill out the google form at the bottom of the page. Please note that due to high volume of requests, we will only respond if your practice aligns with Six Degrees’ values.
*Update on 1st Feb 2017: We are reviewing the needs of our current renters and won’t be getting back to any new applicants for a couple months. If you still wish to apply you can read on and fill out the application form linked at the bottom of this page, or email us again in April 2017. Thank you for your understanding.*
Six Degrees is committed to making health care financially accessible. We want to support the growth of both emerging and established practitioners. We want to support people in our community by offering affordable & beautiful spaces to work in. Long term practitioners will benefit from being listed on our online Practitioner Gallery and on the practitioner board, as well as access to front desk support (greeting and referral), and the option to contribute articles to our monthly newsletter. These are additional channels which will help promote your practice and services.
We have 3 private treatment rooms, a movement studio and a community room to share.
We prioritize those who work with similar ethics and ideals in regards to having a non-judgmental and financially accessible practice.
Private Room Rental
We rent rooms on a half day (8am-3pm or 3pm-9pm) or full day (8am-9pm) basis. You start with a 3-month contract then if both parties feel it is a good fit we would sign for a year. Once you have signed up for a weekly half-day or full-day rental, you gain access to our hourly booking calendars and can book hourly to build your practice.
$50-80 / half day (6 hours) + HST
$100-150 / full day (12 hours) + HST
$15-20 / hour + HST*
*Hourly rental is only available to practitioners who have already committed to at least one half or full day per week.
We operate as a predominantly sliding scale business, so we ask practitioners to consider how much they can afford on the above scales. As a business we experience an overall rent increase each year in August, and so a 7% rental increase is applied to all contracts every year to match the increase in our rental cost.
Studio and Community Room Rental
Our bright, cheerful studio space is perfect for workshops and classes. This space is most suitable for yoga or movement classes and workshops, bodywork trainings or creative workshops and talks. Yoga props and some chairs are provided. The studio can accommodate 10 – 15 students depending on mat spacing, or 20-25 seated for talks.
We rent the studio to like-minded practitioners, facilitators of movement practices, mindfulness or meditation groups and a variety of aligned events. Each person who shares space with us first meets with the office manager or an owner to harmonize and ensure we are creating events/workshops/classes that are accessible for the communities we serve. For yoga practitioners, we ask that you speak to how your practice is grounded in an awareness of cultural appropriation in your application.
Rental rates are as follows:
Hourly rental (Studio only) $40-55/hr + HST
Hourly rental (Studio and Community room) $55-70/hr + HST
Community support rate* 60/40 split
*The community support rate is an option we have for practitioners just starting up their practices who are offering movement practices that the Six Degrees Community can directly benefit from. We hope to collaborate with people and groups to build our movement studio offerings and we recognize that the early days of promoting these practices can be financially hard. For this reason we offer the Community Support rate to anyone who is struggling to grow their practice. Please contact us directly to determine your need to access this rate.
To inquire about room availability please fill out this form and expect to hear back in 10 business days. For other enquiries, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We also share space for weddings or bigger events and fundraisers. Contact us for more info!
