A benefit to help rebuild fire-damaged East Yoga tonight

From the EV Grieve inbox...

Join the Rise of East Yoga!

East Yoga, our close-knit neighborhood sanctuary, suffered a debilitating fire on November 4th. Since then, the outpouring of support we’ve received has been inspirational, and we are forever grateful to everyone who has helped so far. But there is still much more to do. Here's how you can get involved in the remaking of our community:

Benefit for East Yoga @ Pouring Ribbons
Sunday, November 18th, 6 pm – Close
225 Avenue B (Second Floor)

We will hold a silent auction featuring everything from homemade scarves to Adirondack getaways. At least 10% of all food and drink sales will be donated to East Yoga's rebuilding efforts.

Note: There’s still plenty of room in the silent auction, so if you have a special skill, service, talent or product you’d like to donate, please contact us at with the subject line “Silent Auction Help.”

Fundraising Campaign
We need to meet our $10,000 goal by December 9th to cover expenses related to the fire. Click here to donate through our partners at Lucky Ant. Any amount helps, and we’re offering free classes to reward your generosity!

Attend Classes
We’re holding classes at various temporary locations, including Alphabet City Sanctuary. Check our schedule for the latest updates.

Donate Skills
We are in particular need of legal services and real estate assistance. If anyone skilled in these areas can offer advice/reduced rates, please contact us at with the subject line “Donating Skills.”

Did East Yoga have insurance? I assume you have to have some kind of insurance when you run a business, or is that not the case? If they do have it, any word on whether they will get money to rebuild or relocate?

They should team up with S'mac!

Great post, EV!

@anon 8:53: They do have insurance, but it won't cover things like payment to staff. They are committed to rebuilding the studio in some way, shape, or form...hopefully by early next year.
