My situation recently became bit of a desperate one with corona virus pandemic.
I feel like this is the only time ill ever use a website like this. Ive never been a big fan of asking for help nor money, as a rule i don't do it.
However desperate time, desperate measures. I am stuck in India, close to Rishikesh where i have been participating in a Yoga teacher taining in March. With a lockdown i (and many others for that matter) have found myself stranded here without funds to get back home to Poland. My return tickets have been booked before hand, but with contiuosly changing rules of The Global Quarantine they have been postponed twice already, with no guarantee of it happening at the end of the month anyway.
Atmosphere of the place where me and 5 remaining students have been staying in is becoming more tense everyday. When yesterday there was a very tense moment of agression from a manager of this place and I. I feel like its not going to get easier with time, people who work here also worry about their families and want to get home as soon as possible. However they must stay for as long as we, the students are here. Arrising tention is understandable.
Another thing, India being one of the poorest countries struggle a lot with food supplies wich is expected to become a very serious issue sooner or later.
Theres a flight on 18th of April heading to Finland. However it's cost (€476.06) is beyond my budget and that it's only a begining of the Way Back Home journey.
From there im planning to fly to Amsterdam, and stay there for a while. waiting until borders of my home country are reopened again. Which also comes with its own expenses, however with a help of group of friends from there ill be able to quarantine myself and survive for some time.
I'm asking here for a lot, i know that. We all are in an extreme situation, that we couldnt expect and habe no one to blame for it. I wouldnt ask if it wasnt absolutely neccessary. If youre in a position to help, trust me it will be very much appreciated. Maybe after things go back to some version of normality and ill be able to find work again, ill be able to offer something back.
If you are into yoga, i am as of recently a certified Yoga Teacher. 🙏😁 I would be more than happy to offer free yoga classes once i'm back in europe!
