Nicolette Goes to Yoga School
Organized by: Nicolette Dixon
Thanks for visiting my page #NicoletteGoesToYogaSchool! With your help, I will be a yoga teacher! Yoga has brought me joy and comfort for over fifteen years, and by training to teach it, I will share the benefits of a yoga practice with others.
In June, I’ll be going to Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, a retreat and education center in beautiful Western Massachusetts. After lots of thoughtful searching, I'm thrilled to have found a program aligned with my principles. Kripalu is, "dedicated to empowering people and communities to realize their full potential through the transformative wisdom and practice of yoga," and so am I!
I am devoted to using my skills for social justice. I'm partnering with community groups and service organizations focused on social change to offer free yoga classes. These groups include:
Girls for Gender Equity
I used to think yoga teacher training was out of reach for me financially, but I'm ready to ask for your support to overcome the challenge.This program requires living on site for up to one month. Kripalu has offered me a scholarship of nearly $2,000, but I'll need to cover additional costs for training and accommodations, living expenses, and travel.
I am so grateful to every person who has encouraged me and supported me along the way to this goal, and I continue to be flooded with awe at the generosity and love I am shown by people in my life. Thank you for reading, thank you for being part of my life, and thank you for any offering you can make towards this cause. I am so excited to begin this chapter of my life, and even more excited to share it with you!
