The Cut – By Charlotte Cowles mytwocents@nymag.com

The Cut asked readers to share what they’re doing with their money — or lack thereof — in the midst of an unprecedented crisis. Amanda Gloria Valdes is a 38-year-old yoga instructor who spent eight years building her niche in New York’s competitive industry. In March, she was suddenly unemployed for the first time in her life, and found herself jockeying for clients online. She spoke with The Cut about what it’s like teaching from her parents’ living room in New Jersey, and why the yoga studio business model was never sustainable in the first place. 👇
