Story

Our Yoga Community

In September 2019 Crystal Heart Yoga officially opened its doors in Corning, New York. We have been fortunate to watch our community grow together, the teaching staff expand, and our class offerings provide a much needed touchstone in many lives. 

Just 6 months after opening we must now temporarily shutter our beloved new studio in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic. We wish for us all to remain connected and remember what awaits us. To keep that dream a reality we have started this campaign, allowing you to back this small, local business--Support Crystal Heart Yoga in Style!  

What We Need & What You Get

We are in need of the funds to keep our business running while we are unable to use the studio space. Classes must stop for now, but our financial obligations and basic expenses do not.  This is a challenge! I must still cover insurances, taxes on the lease, the lease itself, minimal utilities, and the like. 

If you decide to purchase something from the campaign you will support the studio financially right away. You also help to create awareness for the studio when you post pictures of your studio-branded threads and wear them out in the world when we resume our normal activities. Tag us on Instagram with @crystal.heart.yoga!

Other Ways You Can Help

Consider sharing this campaign with anyone who likes shirts, yoga, and/or small businesses! Please let others know that they can support the studio by posting on social media or sending them a link. We thank you!

Consider using some of the upcoming pay-what-you-can YouTube videos!

You can also find weekly Live streaming classes on the Crystal Heart Yoga Facebook page, co-hosted with the Southeast Steuben County Library. These will be archived for you to use at any time, (*note, the first class is available on the library's Facebook page) and air at 10a Fridays until the library reopens.  We are also creating a YouTube channel for yoga classes to use from home. 

I built this studio as a tribute to the practice of yoga and all its seekers.  This small business was built of heart, time, sweat, sacrifice, and love. I am now only one of many who view our studio as an anchor--as a sanctuary.  We will work to keep it. We need help to ensure it remains a valued resource in Corning.
