Bread and Yoga needs your help to raise funds for the renovation of its new home in Inwood.

Bread and Yoga was founded in 2009 with the mission of serving Inwood, a vibrant community in Northern Manhattan. With a focus on health and creative expression as a path to wellness, Bread and Yoga offers yoga, cooking and nutrition classes, art classes, community events and a comprehensive after-school program. Bread and Yoga is a small business dedicated to nurturing the vitality of its community and bringing people together.

In January of 2012 our beloved space at the corner of 207th and Broadway suffered a devastating fire destroying the studio and all its contents. Since then we’ve operated out of a temporary space at Holy Trinity Church and have stayed up and running thanks in large part to the tremendous generosity of our supporters and friends.

After 18 months of looking for a new space we will soon be ready to move into our new home at 5000 Broadway.  This is a time of reconstruction, celebration and a declaration to the Inwood community that we are here to stay!

The funds raised in this campaign will help us create a new haven, a space where we can come together, share thoughts and take a personal stake in improving ourselves and our neighborhood. Small businesses like Bread and Yoga are the heart and soul of any community and your contribution will celebrate the idea that we're truly all in it together.


Currently we are undergoing a major renovation of our new home at 5000 Broadway. With your help, we will be able to make the space a beautiful and welcoming haven for our Bread and Yoga family.

Your contributions will help cover:

- Permits, planning, architectural and design expenses

- The gut demolition of what was formerly a partitioned office space including eliminating drop ceilings

- A full renovation creating four separate spaces for an art studio, yoga studio, kitchen and lobby/retail area

- Refinishing floors and ceilings and installing sustainable bamboo flooring for the yoga studio

- Furniture, storage, lighting fixtures, kitchen appliances

- Bathrooms and changing areas

- A brand new yoga wall!

In the spirit of sustainability, we will be incorporating reused and refinished original materials and second hand furnishings therefore keeping our construction as green as we possibly can.


In its first four years, Bread and Yoga became an essential part of the community and we are committed to providing services that otherwise would not exist in Inwood. Even so, we have lots more moving and shaking to do!  The goals that come with having a new home are limitless.

This is a great opportunity to invest in the quality of life and vitality of our community. Every contributor is an essential part of our Bread and Yoga family. Your contribution is a hands on way of helping us raise this barn and our gratitude is immeasurable!


You can get your hands dirty in many ways. If you cannot make a financial contribution at this time please support us by SPREADING THE WORD ABOUT OUR CAMPAIGN! Make noise, email your friends and family.  Share with them why this is important to you and why it's good for the Inwood community. The more folks who join us in the raising of this barn, the stronger our community gets. 

Indiegogo makes it super easy for you. Just use the share tools on this page to spread the word on all the social platforms as well as via your email database.
