About this project



My journey of wellness, mental health and traveling can be found on my Crooked Flight and Pure Wander blogs, which has been popular over the years. But I'd like to focus in on yoga and giving back in the future with my platform.

I'd love to create a community of yogis who come from all different places and all look beautifully different. I don't want anyone to think they cannot be a part of the yoga community - wether they have a disability, are overweight or 'unhealthy', have a financial limitation, have more than one of these things or simply do not look like others in the studio. This is accessible for ALL. Who cares what everyone else is doing - yoga is about YOU.

Lots of people who look like me ask me about yoga and how they can start thier own practice, but I don't have any formal training yet besides a daily practice the last few years. I want to change that so I can give the best advice and support others to change thier lives for the better through yoga like I did.

Instead of going abroad to get certified to Indonesia, Thailand or India, I'd like to learn formally right in my own backyard. I've been so fortuneate to practice all over the world, but plan to intruct and learn on the south shore of Massachusetts. I've chosen Open Doors in Weymouth and the Upcoming 200hour Yoga Teacher Trainings starting this April (or the summer intensive).

Risks & Challenges



I'm nervous about a full-on training course. I've recently moved from living in London and am not familiar with the local scene or practice back here on the south shore. But I have no doubt I will finish out the training and be an ambassador to diverse yogis who practice here in Massachusetts.

    Hello - while adding a few more months to your project - It seems that i expired it 3 days early..... I know the user can request an extension but now im not sure if that is possible once the goal has expired.... we might have to look at this together! I will ask Tim (the real admin) for some help. Thank you, AC
