We have 23 regular yoga teachers who have suddenly stopped earning wages from public classes. We hope to raise money to support them.

by Retreat Yoga Studio in London, England, United Kingdom

The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of British small businesses, which is going to make it very challenging for businesses to survive. Together we can help.

Retreat Yoga Studio is a small business ran by Anais Alvarado. We opened our doors in March 2018, and have a team of dedicated, talented and professional yoga teachers who offer weekly classes to our loyal community of yogis. 

The studio had to temporarily close its doors on the 17th of March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite our aim to offer online classes, this closure will directly affect our teachers and the future of the business. 

We are reaching out to the local and global community through this campaign for support in raising funds to guarantee an 'emergency fee' for our regular teachers whilst we are unable to offer public classes.

Find out more about our regular teachers here: https://www.retreatyogastudio.co.uk/teachers

The goal:

We aim to raise £200 for each teacher. (£200 x 23= £4600)

As a business, we have daily expenses and bills that we need to prepare for at this time. We will not use any of the money raised through this campaign to cover the business expenses. However, as soon as your donations reach our bank account they will become tax-deductible, because we are a VAT registered business. So a 20% tax charge must be added to our goal.

£4600 + 20% (tax charge) = £5520

How you can help:

  • It might seem obvious but the best way to help is by pledging, any donations are welcome. 
  • Share the campaign with your friends, online and on social media.
  • If you offer any services or sell any goods that can be used as rewards in this campaign please get in touch via email: anais@retreatyogastudio.co.uk
  • Keep supporting yoga studios and teachers worldwide offering paid online classes. 
  • Let us know if you have any ideas or suggestions. 

Thank you! We really appreciate your support!

Lots of love from the Retreat Team
