A Community Call to Action

Meredith HoltArticles

Dear Yoga Garden SF Family,

Thank you so much for showing up and supporting us during this time of uncertainty. It is our mission to offer high-quality yoga and movement classes always, and especially now. It has been just over one month since we closed our doors on March 15th. Since then, we have been committed to staying connected to you and the community while providing an income stream for teachers, staff, and the studio. Our goal is to remain open and survive this pandemic as a small business so that we can re-open our doors when it is safe to do so.

The livestream Zoom classes and teacher trainings have been a good option; however, we are running into a disappointing challenge. We were relying on a general communal integrity to sign-up and register through Mindbody or ClassPass. A recent audit of the first 3 weeks of classes show that in some cases more than 25% of the class is not registered. We are sensitive to and aware of the economic challenges right now which is why we are opening a partial membership scholarship for those who cannot afford classes otherwise. 


A Community Call To Action:

 

1. Support your local studio.

If at all possible, please keep your membership and continue to pay and register for classes. This will help support our teachers, staff, and the studio at large so that we can remain in business. We have lowered the drop-in price to $15 and the 10-Class Pass to $120.

2. Register for class.

Please register through Mindbody or ClassPass so that we can have an accurate count of who is taking classes.

3. Gift an Intro Membership.

Many of you have asked how to support us. Consider purchasing an Introductory Membership for friends and loved ones. This is one month of unlimited yoga classes for only $65. You can purchase Intro Membership gift cards here.

4. Follow yogagardensf on Instagram.

Social media sharing is of great value to us during this time. Please follow yogagardensf, tag us, and invite friends to your yoga classes.

5. Apply for a Partial Membership Scholarship.

If you cannot afford yoga classes at this time, please apply for a scholarship in the form below. Of  course we want you to keep practicing during this stressful time; however, we still need you to register and sign-up for classes.
