  • Funding Usage

    We are rapidly trying to build an online presence which reflects our studio's unique style. The online presence will help to retain our membership since we are forced to close our doors due to COVID-19. We must also fulfill payroll for those how have not been paid. Pay suppliers, rent and services owed and/or already performed. Sure up our heating and cooling infrastructure which has served us for almost 20 years, pay for in depth cleaning and disinfecting of the entire studio to remove the blight of COVID-19, paint, refurbish front desk and studio appearance to return to a safe refreshed and ready to perform staff, membership and studio. Put aside some of the funds for working capital and unexpected eventualities.

  • Business Plan

    The main plan now is to develop and online presence that reflects the uniqueness of our studio. The online presence will help to retain some membership now but will also created a significant boost in membership sales and retention as it will attract a much broader national and international client base. The funds would also help to sure up our infrastructure (heating/cooling, showers, front desk, painting, etc.) that has served us for the past 19 years to give the studio a renewed fresh and welcoming space to return to remove the blight of COVID-19. We are the very first hot yoga studio in all of Westchester County and we have been servicing the community and beyond for almost 20 years. The studio has always been a female and black owned small business created, built, operated and served thousands of people for almost 20 years out of the pocket of it's sole black female owner and it's very existence is now threatened due to complete loss of income and COVID-19.

  • Self Identified Competition

    Well, all fitness and yoga studios are now shut down but, in normal times competitors would be Sweat Central, YogaSpark, Rebel Yoga. We brought this type of business (Hot Yoga) to Westchester County. We still remain the premiere hot yoga studio while maintaining a warm family atmosphere which created a sanctuary to legions of longstanding loyal customers (many of them who have been members for the entire 19 years that our doors have been open). Our studio is the only wholly and solely owned black, female studio in our county and the only one has opened its doors, free of charge to the community during major crises such as 9/11, 2003 northeast blackout and Sandy, to name a few, not to mention coming creating and conducting fundraising classes for members of our specific community to help them through personal crises like cancer, hysterectomies, lossed jobs and deaths. Our study truly represents the best of what community service entity should be.
