To our YYOGA fam,
With our temporary closure announcement on March 16th, we know many of you are keen to know if we’re making reopening plans, which is understandable.
Firstly, it needs to be said that your kindness and support during this difficult time has not been lost on us. We see every email, like, comment and share, and if there’s any silver lining in all of this, it has to be the incredible way this community has come together to support one another. Even if that has been digitally.
Based on the information provided by government officials in the past two days, we will remain temporarily closed until further notice. Please know that we, more than anyone, are keen to reopen and welcome you back to our studios.
At this time, there is still a great deal of uncertainty and we are closely monitoring the situation as new information is arising daily. We’re hopeful that this will resolve more quickly, but nobody can be certain. As heartbreaking as this is, this is the reality we are currently facing. Your continued support has become more important than ever before. We love this community and are doing everything we can to protect it.
Even with this difficult reality, we wish more than anything to support our teachers and team -- who have been dramatically affected -- recoup the wages that EI can’t cover. Unfortunately we do not currently have the funds to fill in that gap. So we’ve come up with another solution -- asking you, our community, for help.
We’ve launched a 5 Class Pack sale (valid for when we reopen) where we will donate 100% of the proceeds as follows:
• 50% to our teaching staff
• 50% to our employees
You can purchase your 5 Class Pack here!
The other way you can support our teachers is by tuning into our live feeds on Instagram, Facebook and (coming soon) YouTube and also by subscribing to YYOGA at Home. We pay our teachers their full rates for these live classes so if you’re liking them, tune in and tell us and we’ll add more!
Additionally, 100% of subscription revenue generated will be put towards paying teachers in our next video shoot for YYOGA at Home -- which means more content for you and more income opportunities for them.
We are also offering a digital 30 Day Challenge on YYOGA at Home and offering a discounted annual subscription. Any income generated from that initiative will go straight into booking and paying teachers for additional filming with us this Spring. More details here.
On behalf of our teachers and team members - THANK YOU - for your support.
Our commitment to you is to keep the lines of communication open. And as this is a situation that changes so rapidly, we continue to assess daily. When we think reopening our studios is on the horizon, you’ll be among the first to know.
Until then - see you on YYOGA at Home and in our live streams for some virtual hugs and high fives.
We truly can’t wait to welcome you back to your mat in studio. We miss you!
