Yoga Crowdfunder – can you help?
We’re feeling positive about the future and have some great initiatives in the pipeline that we want to share with you Yogarisers, but right now we need your help.
We’ve launched a Crowdfunder to enable us to diversify and evolve as a business. As a small business, after a year of Covid restrictions and being closed for the most-part, we now know that the ‘bricks and mortar’ studios alone are not enough to ensure our survival. With the uncertainty of everything Covid has brought with it, coupled with the reduced (socially distanced) studio numbers when we are able to reopen, we have to look at other ways to support the business.
As you know, community is at the heart of what we do, so we have tried our hardest throughout the pandemic to keep that studio spirit alive, with free NHS memberships and discounts, free IGTV sessions, and now we have 3 weekly Community Classes for only £3 which goes towards paying the Yogarise YTT Graduate teacher and profits to Project Yogi. We have also continued to split all takings for our regular classes 50:50 with our teachers so that we can continue to run an online schedule. Thanks to everyone who has supported the studio and our team online with Livestream memberships, gift vouchers and more recently signing up to our On Demand yoga channel – we couldn’t have got this far without you.
What’s the funding for?
We would like to launch a yoga product range including a fab, Yogarise cork mat (see prototype on the Crowdfund page) and also to invest in our On Demand library of videos. Find out more about it here.
How you can help
Please give our Pay It Forward page a read – we are welcoming varying levels of pledge. There are some goodies thrown in the mix as an incentive, but our main goal is to keep our doors (virtual and real) open.
If you’re not in a position to pledge financially, spreading the word is hugely appreciated – please give the page a share on your social channels, with colleagues, friends and yoga-lovers 🙂
Thanks for reading – together, we can do it! x
