I'm currently volunteering in the organzation UpRising Yoga to bring Yoga in Juvenile Hall and creating a program in Los Angeles County for CSEC (Commerically Sexually Exploited Children).
My mission is to use Yoga to heal the trauma in at-risk youth for them to take back their steering wheels for their bodies and emotion. Ultimately, to empower them to finding who they are to the world.
At this point, we're only teaching once a week. We are working on a contract with LA County Probation Department that will enable us get in there at least twice a week at more than one location.
The majority of the fund will go toward my traveling cost to different Yoga studios to lead the fundraising Yoga class for UpRising Yoga. As well as traveling to Los Angeles from Boulder to extend my assistance to the program.
I'm also planning to attend a workshop in Seattle that foucs on the Somatic Psychology of the trauma in these young adults' bodies. Since my background is in Psychology that will be a great compliment of that.
I’m here to present an opportunity for sponsorship by you to help me meet my goals. Any donation will be greatly appreciated from me and all the at-risk youth who's having an opportunies to take control of their own life again.
