Here's Bruce's Inspiring Story! Help SEND Bruce to Yoga Teacher Training so he can inspire others. 

Yoga Mountain Studio is supportive of all students who are sincere in their yoga practice and want more yoga education but may not have the financial means to realize their dream.

This year, we want to extend our support to Bruce Clifton ~  His journey inspires us!  

In December of 2011, his life took a turn as he was seriously injured in a bicycle accident and suffered a traumatic brain injury.

Before being seriously injured, Bruce worked as an Occupational Therapist for 11 years in Acute Psychiatry at San Francisco General Hospital. He was an avid cyclist,  studied martial arts and also Eastern philosophy. Unfortunately,  he was not able to return to his job as an O.T.

A few years into his recovery he discovered yoga.  After trying out several yoga studios he chose Yoga Mountain as a place where he could have a consistent daily activity that was both engaging and therapeutic for his mind and body.   

For the past five years, he has been attending daily (and sometimes twice daily) yoga classes at Yoga Mountain. Bruce makes progress every day and continues to work on regaining his memory and general brain function through Yoga.  He has made more than progress in his healing, he has also made friends.  He feels a strong sense of belonging in the Yoga Mountain community.

He says his appreciation for Yoga has grown into a  deeper understanding of the self-care and growth that comes from a consistent and well-directed yoga practice. He praises the yoga teachers at Yoga Mountain and says they have provided clear direction and a safe space for him to regain his life.

The 200-hour Teacher Training Program is an opportunity for Bruce to go further on the path of yoga, and to continue his healing process.  Eventually, with his background in O.T.,  he wants to help others who have survived traumatic brain injury.

We salute Bruce's dedication to his practice and his sincerity as a yoga student. We feel he has so much to give.  As a yoga community, we offer our support to him on his incredible journey.

Yoga Mountain has offered $800 towards the cost of his training.  The remaining cost is $3,150. 

Donations of $10-$100+ are much appreciated. You can also donate at the front desk
at Yoga Mountain Studio, 31 Bolinas Ave. Fairfax, CA .  Or call: 415-459-9642

Let's send our beloved Bruce to Teacher Training!!! 

Namaste,  Yoga Mountain Studio staff and teachers.....
