There are plenty of people and distractions on the internets clamoring for your valuable attention and, yes, sometimes help. (read: money). We’re gonna spare you the song and asana and get straight to it. We need your help! OK, we, I, need your support and generosity, and yes, money. Wait! Hear me out. The founder of YD (me!*) is a yogi (obvs) and is endeavoring to further grow through continued yoga education in a 300-hr teacher training program beginning this July. *deep inhale* There’s just one problem: it’s expensive ($3500+) and I can’t afford it! Unless…[insert shameless plug for $] help comes from forces greater than myself.
If you enjoy reading YD, want your news to come from a progressively yogi-educated source, if you have a $1, some change from your morning joe, a quarter you found under the couch cushions, (anything!) and want to show your support, it would be appreciated with the deepest and utmost sincerity!
And so even though it feels like I should have a cardboard sign and maybe pop a squat in front of the Starbucks on 57th St (not a half bad idea, if the dude with “need $$ for weed” didn’t already have the corner on lockdown), I’m going to go ahead and channel 90s trio TLC’s sensational debut single when I repeat their legendary words, “I ain’t 2 proud 2 beg!”
Besides, if the training happens *fingers crossed* I hereby pledge to:
- Blog about my 300hr training experience at least twice a month on YD.
- Continue to share the knowledge I gather through training.
- Send each and every person who donates a thank you gift of some sort either in the form of stickers, tees, other YD goods or hugs & kisses (to be determined).
PLEASE do not feel any obligation whatsoever. This is simply just a ‘put it out there see if it floats’ kind of thing. And hey, this guy did it!
Disclosure: Teacher training will be the 300-hr program at YogaWorks NYC, July-Dec 2010.
