We're raising vital funds to stay afloat, rebuild and recover from the impact of COVID-19.

New stretch target

Social responsibility has always been at the heart of yogahaven. We want to build a yogahaven meditation and movement app to help with physical and mental wellbeing.


We had made the decision not to do any crowdfunding for yogahaven, but then an announcement came from the Mayor of London offering a £5k  match fund for small and independent businesses! Huge, right? And a no-brainer for us to want to get involved.

How it works is simple, for every £1 you donate, the Mayor of London also gives us £1 up to a maximum of £5000. Thanks very much, Sadiq!

What will we use the money for?

Some of the funds raised will help us rebuild and recover from the impact of CV-19, it will help towards all the overheads that go along with having large commercial premises.

Also important to us is social responsibility, it has always been at the heart of yogahaven. Fundamentally, we always set out to be a kind, non-dogmatic and open minded community. Sometimes, challenging situations have a silver lining  and we feel that if there is one here it’s the opportunity to pause, reflect, and ensure that we think carefully about how we ‘rebuild’ as things return to normal ????.

With that in mind we’d like to spend our crowdfund on seeking the advice of a Sustainability Consultant, to set us on the right track to making sure our studios work in cohesion with hope for a greener  future.

Alongside this, we’ll also be developing our On Demand offering - we’ve loved being able to welcome students from all around the globe to our online classes and, we know that bricks and mortar studios have become less of a necessity in the business of sharing yoga (though, this doesn’t mean we aren’t looking forward to having students back under our roof for a sweaty class ????and a chat in reception - we’re longing for these days to return). On Demand classes will compliment our sustainable business model in reducing travel to the studios for those that are comfortable practicing at  home.

We hope that those who are in a comfortable position to do so might consider sending a donation. A share on social or forwarding our newsletter to your friends also does wonders!!

Oh, and there are also lots of rewards and goodies on offer as a thank you for your generosity, and in lieu of the hug we’d love to be able to give you. These include 1-2-1 yoga sessions with the two of us (Allie & Krystal YH Founders), free live stream access and goodie bags!

We ask project owners to honour their rewards wherever possible but please note that all pledges are donations and there is no guarantee that you will receive any rewards from the project owner. Please see our Terms of Use for more information regarding rewards for pledges.
