You may have seen/heard me on National and International TV/Radio Shows, Magazines, and Newspapers.
When my mom, Sahel Anvarinejad, had Stage 3 Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer, I was just 6 years old; that is when my yoga journey began.
When my mom completed her Chemotherapy treatments, she was in the worst shape of her life, both physically and emotionally. Besides losing all her hair, eyelashes, & eyebrows, her spirits were down, she couldn’t walk on her own, she was sad, worried, stressed, and scared.
She got into yoga by accident just after being cancer free for two weeks. In just a couple of months, I noticed a HUGE difference in my mom’s physical and emotional wellbeing. She could walk on her own again, she was happier, healthier, and so much more at peace with herself and her surroundings. My mom had become so much healthier in her mind and body, than even before she was diagnosed with Cancer!
I realized at that very moment, that I found my Dharma and that I wanted to share it. I decided to become a yoga teacher and help heal people the way I saw yoga help heal my mom. I really believe that the practice of yoga can benefit everybody, and this is my way to reach and teach as many people as possible.
Since then, my mom has earned 14 different specialty yoga teacher training certificates, and opened CARE4YOGA Kids Yoga Studio, in San Clemente, California.
I received my first yoga teacher training certificate at the age of 7 and I earned my 200 hour Vinyasa teacher training certificate at age 10. I now have a total of 7 different specialty yoga certificates at just 12 years old. I have been teaching donation based yoga classes at my mom’s yoga studio since becoming certified, and I give 100% of that money I make from those donation classes to helping kids who have cancer.
I have been hosted to teach and speak with my mom all over the world including teaching a class of approximately 400 people for Deepak Chopra, 500+ people for Yoga 4 a Cause in Las Vegas, different yoga studios, events, and workshops around the world, and much more.
I have so many amazing people supporting me, my classes, my cause, and my mission to spread the yoga lifestyle, and I am beyond grateful to each and every one of you!!
My dream is to expand what I am currently doing and continue to grow and teach people all over the world. I want to make a video platform with my mom, sharing our love, energy, passion, and knowledge with people about all that we have learned since this journey with Cancer and Yoga began.
The videos would be different yoga classes ranging from Kids yoga, Vinyasa yoga, Restorative yoga, and breathing and meditation exercises. In addition to our amazing yoga class series, we will be having delicious cooking classes, teaching our favorite meals, but veganized..... yuuuumm!!
This is going to be a very special, affordably priced subscription series that you can do in the comfort of your own home, and I look forward to being there with you (on the screen, that is lol).
I would really like to have this subscription series available to all of you by May of 2018, which means I need to start production as soon as possible!
The $45,000 that I will need to raise would be used for professional video production, editing, locations, publishing, videos, and streaming services. I am hoping that I can have the funds by March 1st.
Thank you so much for helping me with your donations!! I will forever be grateful. I look forward to continuing to plant the yoga seed to everyone that I can, so our world can become a better, happier, healthier place to live for generations to come!
Thank you so much and Namaste,
