Teaching Yoga to Heal

We all have goals. We all want to be able to achieve something significant in life. We all need help, sometimes. For me, this help has to be financial. I have been struggling in New York City for nearly four years, lost my job, found a new job, used up my savings to exist, moved twice and live as independently as I am able.

However, I need a second chance. 

Anyone who has read my blog knows that I am a writer and have been since I was 11 years old – technically! I started writing journals, detailing what now seems to be the most ridiculous day-to-day activities. But that matters not: I wrote. I am preparing to self-publish my first book of essays, not able to afford an agent or publicist.

And then this year, yoga became a major part of my life. As I explain here, I may not be on the same track as many of my friends and family – partner, kids, settled life, house, career – but I had the gift of time to put myself back together again. This was a long time coming, but I needed the time and the space away from work to realize it and change. It lead to a work/study position at my local studio and the understanding that I wanted to, eventually, become a yoga teacher myself to enable others to help themselves.

At this point in my life, doing this has become a fundamental part of who I am.

Not only to I want to assist people struggling with depression and anxiety, but I want to be able to offer yoga classes for older people, for office workers stuck and uncomfortable at their desks, and for runners – to remind them to realign and to strengthen their arms and core in order to remain injury free.

However, to make all of this a reality, I need help. I created my campaign on Indiegogo called “Be Whoever You Are: Teaching Yoga to Heal.” You can read about it here and I hope you strongly consider donating or at least sharing this link.

I hope for a chance to make my life the way I want it to be, and something as base as finances should not be such a factor, controlling everything. 

Thanks for your time, you support and your interest. I hope I can make this work.
