Did you know that there are very few yoga teacher training scholarships out there? I didn't either, until I started looking to help fund my own. And that's where Kickstarter comes in, what an amazing resource!
So here's what I want to do:
1. The cost of the teacher training is $3,725, plus living expenses. $3,000 of the money raised will go towards a loan I've already taken out to pay for the training.
2. Raise $1,000 for a scholarship for somebody else for the future. I will donate the money to the Forrest Yoga Company and they will give out the scholarship to a lucky person or two.
3. The rest of the money, give or take a little, goes to Kickstarter and Amazon.com, that is, if the project is fully funded. Your credit card will not be charged if I don't make my goal.
You might be asking yourself, why is another yoga teacher needed in the world. And that is a great question. Here is what I think and feel...
-Slowing down, connecting with our bodies, and being willing to deal with what comes up will reduce our dependence on drugs and unhealthy relationships. Yoga facilitates these breakthroughs.
-I love yoga! Another person living their dream will benefit the whole.
-There are many communities out there that would highly benefit from yoga in terms of real health challenges. Yoga heals. I want to help provide that service. Check out this fascinating article for more information:

If only 200 people donate $25, I will reach my goal! Help me spread the word and thank you in advance!
