Peace Out Yoga Teacher Training

Hello! My name is Chanel Tsang and I'm the host of Peace Out Podcast, a children's podcast of relaxation stories that are inspired by yoga and mindfulness meditation and promote social-emotional learning and self reflection for children ages 5 - 12 years. Each Peace Out episode is downloaded 10,000+ and listened to in  homes and schools around the world. 



ABOUT PEACE OUT PODCAST 
For two years, I have worked with the wonderful team at Bedtime FM to create, write, and narrate each Peace Out story. We have recorded two great seasons (36 episodes!) already and have begun our third season! 

>>>I'm so proud that Peace Out has been included on best podcast lists by Common Sense Media, School Library Journal, and Parents.com, to name a few!<<<

My goal is to keep our podcast free (and ad-free!) for all families and teachers to access for as long as we can. Listeners can listen free on our website  or any podcast app such as Apple Podcasts. Any donations we gratefully receive through our Patreon or PayPal are currently just enough to keep our production, website hosting, etc. fees covered so our producer no longer has to pay out of pocket (whew!).

Each Peace Out episode takes me about 4-6 hours to create including idea conception, research, writing, recording, and editing (this doesn't include the beautiful production work done by BedtimeFM!). 


WHY YOGA TEACHER TRAINING? WHY AM I ASKING FOR YOUR SUPPORT?
My other goal is to keep improving Peace Out through yoga teacher training.  I've been practicing yoga for about 13 years and am looking forward to deepening my practice and understanding of yoga. This will help when creating the breathing and gentle movements that are part of each story and add another layer of guidance and beneficial experience for our listeners. I believe the training will also help me in expanding Peace Out-- I'd love to make the podcast better and develop other resources for parents and educators.

Unfortunately, the family drop-in centre (where I've absolutely loved working in for years), was recently shut down and my job was unexpectedly eliminated this year. I'm so thankful that I was able to find part-time work soon after, but any savings I've made towards yoga teacher training must now be put towards my family's needs first, of course. 

With my now part-time hours and my children back to school, I feel that it's still an ideal time to complete the training so I decided to fundraise to do this, and I am hoping that any listeners of Peace Out who have enjoyed the podcast will be willing to support me here. 

I am committed to continue working on our podcast and putting in new episodes on my free time in between work and family time because I love it and feel passionately about it!

All funds raised will go directly to the yoga training and class fees, and if there is any extra funds, that will be put back into the podcast. (Please note that this is a personal fundraiser and while I have their blessing on this, it is not connected to BedtimeFM.)
