Tall Tales Yoga: Books, Audiobooks, and Kid's Yoga Program
We are here to provide a head start on health, wellness and self-awareness through the age-old traditions of yoga and storytelling.
Tall Tales Yoga was formed from our founder, Levi Andrew Noe's, three greatest passions: teaching, yoga, and storytelling. Nearly five years in the making, Tall Tales started as little more than a fanciful idea, but has become a viable program and business over time.
It's been a long journey for Levi. Over 8 years of teaching, a trip around the world, yoga certification in India, years of writing, years of perfecting the program, business classes, creating the e-books and audiobooks, building a platform for Tall Tales, etc. These are the things every entrepreneur or person trying to bring their visions to life goes through. But now, we feel we are finally at a crucial point in the growth of Tall Tales Yoga. This is the moment when all the years have added up to form the real business and vision that Levi has kept in his mind for so long.
Tall Tales Yoga is ready to scale and we just need a little boost to get there. Our largest expenses to date have been or will be: the building of our website, creating a marketing campaign, and publishing the first print of our Tall Tales Yoga Stories. In addition, we want to be able to provide our products and services to under-served, under-funded schools. Our goal of $5,500 is the minimum we need to kickstart our future plans. With your support we can continue to build the program through Denver and the surrounding areas, as well as putting our books, e-books and audiobooks into the hands of children, families and institutions everywhere.
As little or as much as you can give will take us one step closer to our goals, our vision, and our future impact on kids everywhere. But no great kindness goes unrewarded, so make sure and check out the rewards we offer.
Risks and challenges
Nothing worth doing comes without its risks and challenges. We have been moving for two years at a slow rate of growth in order to stay at a very self-sustaining place. We now know that the business is viable and that our program and products could potentially have a big market. This is the time where we start to push our limits a bit and see how far we can walk out into the unknown.
We risk the loss of thousands of dollars already invested, not to mention the thousands of hours put into this project over the years. We risk the loss of livelihood, of stability and security. But these are fears that must be faced and we don't face them unprepared. Part of the reason we have been purposefully growing slowly is so that we can these calculated leaps of faith into new growth. This is the first of such leaps.
Through a previous Kickstarter for the founder's first children's book, One Day as a Raven we learned the ins and outs of creating a book from scratch. Through the successful management and ownership of Tall Tales Yoga for two years we have learned the nitty gritty of being a small business. And through the years of teaching children and working with them directly to perfect the program and materials, we have learned through experience what works and what doesn't.
Fears are a fact of life, but we're actually not too worried on this one. If successfully funded, there is no doubt in our minds that all rewards will be delivered and Tall Tales Yoga will grow more strong and sustainable.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
