Yoga Teacher Training

As a little girl I was plagued with serious depression and anxiety, which led to addiction. These illnesses cost me what should have been the most carefree years of my life. While the physical and mental scars I was left with will always be with me, they are also behind me. It wasn't until I stopped medicating and began meditating that I began to feel alive, inspired, and truly at peace with my past and excited about my future. Yoga, my instructors, family, and the many new people that have come into my life over the past few years have helped me overcome so much. The self-confidence I've gained has allowed me to love myself for the very first time in my life. As a result I now possess a strong desire to share the amazing gifts I've been given with hopes of changing the lives of others in ways that yoga has changed mine.
For this reason and so many more, I've come to realize that the right path for me is to become a yoga teacher. I'm going after my dream and in order to be successful I need to go all in and completely submerge myself within it. The best way for me to accomplish this is to step completely out of my comfort zone and do my training on my own in India where it all began. I'll be free from distraction which will allow me to make the most of my experience. It will put me on a great path of self-discovery and I feel the more I better myself, the better I'll be able to do my part in changing the world a little bit at a time.
As I'm sure you can imagine this type of training requires a large investment mentally, emotionally, and financially. While I've been working towards this goal for some time, progress is slow and I'm anxious to begin my journey. This strong desire to move forward in my life is what brings me to "Go Fund Me". Your contribution, whether big, small, or in the way of encouraging words will help me get to India and complete a month long intensive Yoga Teacher Training course. Upon completion I will be certified to teach yoga internationally.
Of the few places I considered doing my training; the deciding factor came from the fact that Mahatma Yoga Foundation is a non-profit organization. All proceeds go towards charities that provide food, clothing, medical assistance, and education for the poor and needy women, children, and elderly of India and around the world.

Please help me to accomplish my dream and allow me to encourage the growth of others and all of you who have and may wish to help me get there.
