UP Yoga Teacher Fund

Support for UP Yoga Teachers

With the state of Maryland shutting down fitness gyms across the state, UP yoga in Silver Spring, MD has been forced to shut our doors due to the COVID-19 outbreak. We employ teachers that are considered 1099 contractors and will not be eligible for unemployment insurance from the Government. Since these wonderful souls will be struggling financially due to no fault of their own, we are asking our community and friends to help out where they can. We don't know how long this will last, but if we can put funds into each of their pockets that would go a long way in helping them. We know times are tough for all so we truly appreciate anything you can give.

If we raise at least $500, we hope to be considered to receive aid from GoFundMe's #SmallBusinessRelief initiative.
