After watching this video, I hope my vision is clear: Yoga is the BETTER part of me.
The Ezekiel Phillips yoga story is one that began during his time at Morehouse College to cope with the stress of finals. It's evolved into his favorite past time. Anyone that follows his daily muses on social media can attest to his daily commitment to "Namaste that thang" as Ezekiel likes to say. But for Phillips, it's larger than stretching. It's more than sharing such an intimate space with beautiful women, it's about battling mental health. Phillips famously discusses his mental health battles in his book, TRM. Internal conflict that led him to almost take his life during a flight from Austria back to the United States.
Now he is embarking upon a 12 week Namaste journey to become a yoga instructor. This GoFundMe campaign is the manifestation of W.E.B. Debois' instruction to the talented tenth. A charge which challenges those brothers and sisters blessed with the knowledge, wisdom, and courage to teach and uplift their fellow brothers and sisters to do so with a smile.
Phillips is preparing to walk in that light. By contributing to the initial investment for his training, you will help Ezekiel light a candle in the dark.
Press Play and then make your in-kind contribution of $1, $5, $25, $100, $250, $500 or more.
