Yoga for Kids

I have been teaching yoga and working with a non-profit organization, Friends of Rosewood, at Rosewood Elementary for 2 years now, and although the outcome in signups have been positive, my ultimate goal is to provide yoga to those children that are in emotional stressful situations due to their home environment as well as children that are considered ADHD. There are, if not more, 40 students at our school that have continuous anger management issues, depression and stress. Many of these kids will be heading to Junior High school next year and without the proper tools to cope with their emotions now, they will eventually become a statistic of school dropout, crime and perhaps jail time. These children need a moment in their everyday lives to understand their emotion and the right tools to be able to cope with them, and to have a moment of reflection towards their actions. I believe that these kids are in a great need of yoga.

This year, I am asking for monetary assistance to help these children reach their highest potential. My goal is to raise $10,000 which will provide 56 classes for 40 kids for 6 months this comes out to $4.60 per class. Your donation may be used as a tax deduction. In addition, 15% of your donation goes directly to the school to provide programs that have been taken out of the curriculum due to the major budget cuts.

Please know that all contributions you make will positively impact the lives of these children. Thank you for your thoughtful consideration of my request.
