CHECK OUT OUR FIRST VIDEO HERE!! Thank you for all of your support in making this possible! Would love to hear from you on which yoga topics to cover next!
With all of this heavy news in the media, my brain has really been thinking – what are the ways in which I can contribute, and what are the ways that I can help to heal humanity, and spread peace and relaxation while also keeping my small business afloat! I love to journal, and I’ve gone back through some of my thoughts and ideas. Something stuck out to me – and I’m really excited to share it with you all.
Yoga for the People – Is a concept where, I want to make accessible yoga more available to the community. Private Yoga, Yoga Videos, and Online Yoga Sessions. My target demographic is Adults and Children with Special needs & Marginalized populations.
Many people hear of yoga’s amazing & healing benefits, but few have access to the type of yoga that fits their needs. I have years of experience in working with Autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Elderly, Children, and those who are Non-Verbal, Blind, and have varying types of mobility based disabilities. My heart has always been led to teach those who needed that little extra bit of TLC and understanding. They deserve yoga too, and the average teacher or class doesn’t know how to effectively modify.
Yoga needs to be more available and practical for people’s individual needs. People with Autism, or those who are blind don’t need the flowy, confusing, metaphorical language. They need practical, fun, and clearly articulated instructions so that they can move and relax. Adults with Down Syndrome don’t need boring, serious language and dramatic forward folds, twists, and binds that take flexibility to the max – They need structured strength, balance, and fun to build up soft muscles safely. Those who are frail and elderly don’t need hot yoga and sweat that is going to drain them of all of their precious energy. They need gentle guided movements that are going to help their circulation and leave them feeling energized.
I see this need – and I want to provide for these people But I can’t do it alone! I need your help! I’ve invested a lot of personal time, energy and money into the basic resources I needed to put these videos and classes together, and now is the time for me to start filming. I am asking for donations to help fund my business and this project. Today, I’m going to start filming to release 15 Minute Yoga videos to the public, but I’d really like to do more. With your support of $10, 5, or even $1 I can focus more of my time and energy on this soul work.
Please consider Donating to support YOGA for the People to help me make free yoga & fitness resources and live classes tailored to marginalized populations more available. We’ve got the knowledge and the technology! We just need some angel wings 🙂 Even if you are not able to support monetarily, please share – or send this to someone you know who could benefit from accessible yoga.
