With these funds, I can attend a Yoga Teacher Training with a Specialized Certification in Yoga Therapy in San Francisco. It is my dream to build a yoga school from the ground up and work with the under-served community, including at-risk youth and veterans. I'm particularly interested in learning more about integrating yoga as treatment for Post-Traumatic-Stress Disorder among these groups.
Unlike talk therapy, yoga therapy addresses specific health problems by adapting poses and breathwork. Through yoga, I will help increase awareness of thoughts, triggers, feelings, and physical sensations using a holistic approach. Eventually, I would like to add in therapeutic cooking and other non-traditional methods to support our whole systems.
For those of you who know me personally, you know that I have always been responsible, practical and don't take great risks, especially when it comes to finances. Building a holistic practice and giving back to my community has always been a dream of mine. This time, instead of quelling that fire in favor of a safe and predictable career, I'm ready to take the leap and go after something I know will be fulfilling. My passion will fuel my success.
Please invest in me:and into the community! I need $55 from 119 people. This is your chance to be part of a down-home, grassroots local project that will grow into something magical. I can feel it! I humbly ask for your support so I can make this dream a reality. Let's do this together!
With love and respect,
