About this project

Floating Yoga & Wellness School is a community outreach program, online yoga video resource, yoga & adventure retreat for weeklong trips with friends, a wellness and nutrition workshop venue, and a 200 hour yoga teacher training school. We've spent the past few years teaching yoga at the studio but last year we made a huge life change and took our studio onto our sailboat and began to focus more on retreats, trainings, and online content (and literally float around).

We’ve taught thousands of students and love the interaction & presence of being live, in-person with our students. We’ve learned that people thrive when they’re breathing, moving, and when they can take a break from their lives – whether that break is 10 minutes long or 10 days long. We believe in adventure and getting back to nature, but we know that not everyone has the time or money to take a long retreat.

Community Outreach Program: We've been so fortunate to be able to travel around the world, experience, learn, and teach yoga in big cities and small towns. We're incredibly motivated to take what we've learned and share our knowledge and experiences with underdeveloped communities. We want to teach local adults how to teach nutrition, wellness, and yoga to kids in order to influence future generations.

We're ready to focus full-time on building our community outreach program, retreats, trainings, and creating even more amazing online video content. We're relocating to the Caribbean to do it, upgrading our boat so our Floating Yoga School can accommodate more people, getting better video & editing equipment so we can produce higher quality videos faster, and adding more teachers so we can offer more styles and knowledge. And that's where you can help. 

Your donation helps us spread the yoga love. While it'll take time to get a business established on Island-Time, with your help we can expand our in-person and online offerings at a quicker pace, keep our online content free and our in-person events affordable, and add even more community outreach programs. 

As part of our Kickstarter community, you get access to these amazing retreats, workshops, and trainings at heavily discounted rates. If you or anyone you know has ever dreamt about doing a yoga teacher training, or have thought about doing a fun yoga vacation retreat that doesn't involve traveling to India for a month, this a great opportunity to explore yoga in an exotic and relaxed environment.

Risks and challenges

We've got the yoga thing down, we know how to lead amazing trainings and retreats, we're building the production value of our videos every week, and we just need to get our staff down to the Caribbean to help launch the community outreach programs.

The challenging part is getting established properly in the US Virgin Islands, and navigating all the red tape.

Our retreats and teacher trainings will be scheduled every month starting July 2016. You'll be able to sign up anytime over the next 2 years - so you'll have lots of opportunities & options!
