BlindGirlsSee Yoga dream

I'm Nysha Charlene!  I'm 24 years old, legally blind, open hearted and trying to share my journey with all who care.  I had dreams of becoming a dentist and chased the dream full heartedly.   But then my central vision began to diminish.  They call it Stargardt's disease (juvenile form of macular degeneration).  Now my life is totally different.  I'm slowly losing my central vision and quickly learning many of life's lessons.  Dental school is out of the question but now the options are limitless!  This experience has brought me great challeges but it has brought the smaller things in life closer to my heart.  You can learn so much about me at but if you just want to get to the point here it is:

The point:
I love practicing yoga; Read why (blog post from Blind Girls See 2014)!  Finding a new career has been a super challenge under these circumstances.  I would love to take a yoga teacher-traing course.  You can help me by donating any amount towards my Yoga Center of Minneapolis Teacher-training Certification! - I'm interested in the 230 hour class that begins on October 23 at Studio on 3rd in Rochester, MN.

Free yoga class with me!

I appreciate all of your support more than you may know.  When you donate, I will thank you by promising you a free yoga class with me as your instructor!  I would LOVE for you to be the people in my first class.  Contact me via Blind Girls See - Talk To Me immediately after your donation so that I can send you a free Blind Girls See yoga pass!  This will be my way of tracking who to send the pass to so please don't forget to send that email through the website if you want the yoga session with me!  Your support has helped me in this journey beyond measures!  

Give love, get love. 
If you need a miracle, be one for someone else.
See with your heart and soul.
