Our yoga studio has been in a very compromising position since April this past year because of the loss of gas, and now we face imminent closure without your help.
This is a simple and honest appeal. We must raise $45,000 by immediately or face eviction.
If you can donate, please do. Every drop counts.
As you probably remember, in April, 2017, the city discovered serious landlord issues involving the gas lines in our building at 172 Allen Street. These landlord violations resulted in the gas in the studio to be shut off and the studio being shut down for almost a full month. This was a major revenue hit at a critical time moving into the leaner summer months. We completely refit the studio with electrical equipment replacing the useless gas equipment and worked tirelessly to reopen the studio for our practitioners, staff and teachers.
The cost of these repairs and the expense of the one month closure and put the studio in financial emergency.
With a sense of urgency we are searching for help. It is never easy to ask for money. If you are receiving this it is because we know that you understand the significance of this studio. We need to raise $45,000 immediately or face closure.
Please take a moment to consider this and watch the attached video. Please give if you can.
As you know, we have a beautiful studio. Our classes are instructed by incredibly trained and effective teachers and we have a global reputation as a destination in NYC for a memorable yoga experience. Our community is strong, diverse, loving. Our studio nurtures friendships, souls and bodies.
Please help us keep our doors open. Please donate.
