Help me get trained to teach yoga!

I love yoga; practicing it, sharing it; incorporating it's philosophies into the various corners of my life. It has been my longtime dream to become a certified yoga teacher so that I might deepen my practice and learn the best and safest ways to share my practice with others.

The funds I am raising will go 100% this effort. The program I am interested in is based in India, in the Himalayas in May 2013 ( The cost of the program is about $2200. The flight to India around that time of year is about $1[phone redacted], so my fundraising goal is $3500 (with the minimum goal being $2200 for the course).

All I ask of you, my friends, is to chip in at any level you feel comfortable. Whether it's the price of a drink, a meal, a run to the grocery store, or more, any and all will help build this collective effort.

1) Check: For those who can send a check by mail, contact me via email and I will send you my address.
2) This website (GoFundMe): Note they do take a fee from each donation

A HUGE thanks to those who have already contributed and sent supportive words! It seriously warms my heart to receive this love and support! Thank you for being part of my journey :)
