Since every Bikram Yoga class is taught in exactly the same way,
you can immediately feel how your body changes from time to time.
Bikram Yoga Zurich urgently needs your help, because we are suffering from the late effects of Corona.
The two LockDowns 2020 and 2021 we have survived thanks to government support, a rent reduction,
a large grant from the owner Stefan Tanner and the support of some yogis.
Why do we need your help now?
Last winter we had massive restrictions because of the certificate requirement. During our busiest months, almost two third of our clientele stayed away from the studio because the majority of our yogis are rather critical of the Corona vaccination or were afraid of infection. We implemented 100% of the Corona protection measures for your personal protection. If such big restrictions with 3G and 2G+ were already imposed on us, we assumed that we could count on corresponding governmental help, as with the two lockdowns. Unfortunately, this was not the case. Since we were just able to cover our fixed costs during these high turnover winter months, we did not qualify for government support. After the lifting of the certificate obligation from February 17, 2022, all frozen abos continued to run again and accordingly we can hardly generate any revenue until now. Our generous abo extensions of up to 5 months for two thirds of our customers threaten our existence. The open invoices amount to approx. 90'000.- CHF and the Covid credit to be paid back amounts to 72'000.- CHF. Our biggest creditors have been patient during the two lockdowns and the duration of the certificate obligation. These payments are now being collected as our billers assume that our operation is back to normal. Unfortunately, this is not the case, as the big summer slump is now coming and without your help we will again lack the necessary liquidity.
In our 18-year history, more than 25,000 yogis have practiced with us, of which about 15,000 still receive this newsletter. At the moment we have about 1000 active yogis, many of whom had to extend their abos for 5 months. If all active yogis donate 100.- CHF each,
we will be there for you not only in the Fall but for many more years to come.
If you care that Bikram Yoga Zurich with its 18 years of experience is not disappearing, then help us please with a donation.
Only with your help and solidarity we can keep Bikram Yoga Zurich alive.
We thank you personally and in the name of our community for your valued support.
