Help Rachel achieve her dream

Rachel Bowden is a 42-year old mother of two "“ a wife, yoga teacher, writer and designer who juggles three jobs to help support her family. Rachel lives her life as she practices her yoga: with joy, love and compassion. It has been a longtime dream of hers to visit Bali, even more so since she began studying and teaching yoga. Family always comes first for Rachel, so the thought of ever being able to attend a yoga retreat has never been an option for her. Any "extra" income earned goes to the care and keeping of her children, providing them opportunities for growth and development.

We'd like to help raise the funds to send Rachel to the week-long yoga retreat we are hosting in Bali in August. A freelance health column writer, Rachel is also beginning her first book. This trip would be the perfect opportunity to get away and make some good progress on that front. We would love to help Rachel, and hope to do so with the help of her family and friends as well as ours. We would also like to give one of our beautiful Yoga Inspired Bracelets from Bali to everyone who donates $35 or more.

In Rachel's words:
"Yoga is much more than a physical discipline. It is a commitment to caring for the planet and all its inhabitants. I would love to have the opportunity to practice yoga in Bali and would cherish the opportunity to learn about the Balinese culture. My family is the most loving and supportive you could imagine - I am beyond blessed in this department - but could use a little help in the financial department to allow me to grow further in my yoga practice, and as a mother and writer. Thank you in advance for your help."
