We are crowdfunding to raise $10,000 to cover the cost of our current Yoga Teacher Training: to support men who are currently incarcerated at Pennsylvania State Correctional Institute - Phoenix.
Our Trauma-Sensitive Yoga Teacher Trainings (YTT) offered in correctional facilities are so much more than just yoga trainings. They are transformational. YTT is also an opportunity to build a pathway for the participants to contribute to their communities, both on the inside and outside.
These funds will be used to cover the cost of the 25 men who are currently incarcerated in our third 200-hour Trauma-Sensitive YTT. Excitingly, past graduates are actually helping to teach this class! Our costs are approximately $400 for each individual to participate in our training; this compares to $2,000 to $3,000 in studios on the outside.
We're raising money on Start Some Good - an innovative crowdfunding platform that uses the all-or-nothing approach! So, that means your donation will get processed only when we meet our goal. Therefore, you know your support will have the greatest impact. Plus, there are some really cool rewards for you to check out!
