We’re now 26-days in to my 45-day Indiegogo campaign, as I raise the necessary funds for my upcoming Fall yoga teacher training certification. The response has been amazing; with $715 in contributions, I am now at 19% of my goal of $3800. A big thank you to all for your support!
It has been quite the balancing act, keeping up with promoting the campaign, while at the same time maintaining my existing practices and at-home duties! Most certainly, it will all be worth the effort, as I can already feel a sense of ease, knowing that I am entering the course with at least a portion of the financial obligations covered.
I’m also fortunate to have garnered the support of my clients and students, many who have gone out of their way to help spread the word. Sarah Jean Harrison, dedicated community activist and a university professor who teaches vital courses on poverty and homelessness, is one such person. When I told Sarah about my crowdfunding campaign, she requested an interview for her blog, “Peace Flag House”. Sarah presented me with several questions about what led me to my current practices, my approach to teaching and what the future holds for me. I hope that my responses have done her thought-provoking inquiries justice.
A Weekend Of Yoga & Music – June 21 & 22
If you live in our neighbourhood – heck, even if you don’t – we have a couple of fun events planned, to raise awareness of the campaign and to hopefully raise a few more dollars!
This will be the first time that we’ve brought the turntables outside for a gig since the charity events we held at our old space on Bloor St. West. It’s also been two summers since I’ve conducted free classes in the Humber Valley, so both of these events are quite special! Join us, have fun, meet your neighbours, celebrate life!
