There are those amongst us in the yoga world who are suddenly, unexpectedly experiencing real financial hardship as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic. Most yoga teachers are freelancers and have no income whatsoever. While some are fortunate enough to be able to offer online classes for free, there are many who are now completely dependent on revenue from teaching online.
We have set up the Fierce Calm Yoga Teachers Relief Fund and our aim is to raise £10,000 to allow us to provide emergency relief grants to those amongst us who are unable to work yet continue to be committed to helping others maintain good health and mental wellbeing through this challenging time.
We will be offering donation based classes online, led by our ambassadors and friends, with all donations allocated to those who need it the most. Keep an eye on our Instagram feed for details.
We know that you will all have your own challenges and will no doubt be supporting friends and teachers locally. If you are able to help us, here’s what to do:
Share the fundraiser on your social media https://www.instagram.com/p/B99tTqMDW4C/?igshid=c87y5h7ztkvj
Donate a percentage from each of the classes you run to the Fierce Calm Teacher Relief Fund GoFundMe. Trust us, these small contributions will add up quickly! https://www.gofundme.com/f/fierce-calm-yoga-teachers-cooperative
Hold a donation based class and donate the proceeds to the Fierce Calm Teacher Relief Fund GoFundMe https://www.gofundme.com/f/fierce-calm-yoga-teachers-cooperative
Donate $£10 to the Fierce Calm Teacher Relief GoFundMe if you can! https://www.gofundme.com/f/fierce-calm-yoga-teachers-cooperative
Email three friends and ask them to donate to the Fierce Calm Teacher Relief Fund GoFundMe https://www.gofundme.com/f/fierce-calm-yoga-teachers-cooperative
Email at least ten yoga instructors you know and ask them to run 1 donation based class
We hope we will be able to do more over time. For now, this is a start. Perhaps this is the moment the Fierce Calm community was created for. You are not alone. We are all one and we will get through this as one.
