Karuna Yoga Teacher Training Fund

Update posted by Liz Kamugisha On Apr 25, 2017

With two weeks left in my fundraising, I'm determined not to lose momentum, to keep trying until the very end, after all, who knows what miracles can happen in the next few days. So, I've come up with yet another way you can help me reach my fundraising goal; a Yoga Top Sale ! Order one of these funky tops, (also available as Men's T-Shirts too) upgrade your yogi swag and help an inspiring yogi raise funds for a yoga teacher training.

I've already started getting orders for tops, and learning a lot along the way. When I had developed these designs for yoga tops, I had only one design (the one in the center) and yet I felt the need to offer some other alternatives with more common designs because I didn't feel like mine was...good enough.

Without telling anyone which design was mine, I started getting orders for tops, and to my surprise the most popular order has been the one with my own design on it ! The lesson in this has been really impactful, and has given me insight into my own inferiority complex and limiting beliefs. And I am grateful for it !

After all, when I started this fundraising campaign, I made the commitment to take on this yoga teacher training, and declared to myself and the universe to focus my yoga teaching on improving mental health and wellbeing to those around me, because I believe that's where the true healing starts.

It seems that God heard me, because every step of this fundraising journey has been full of lessons and insights into my own mind !

It's forced me to step out of my comfort zone, find the strength in my vulnerability, and when in doubt to return to where it all started, my yoga practice, which has always been a space for release, healing and inspiration.

I'm now wondering if I should just offer my original design in more colors, and print less of the other two supplementary designs ?! What do you think ?

If you would like to buy one, place an order with me via whatsapp +256703032869 now, as they are only on offer until the end of my fundraising campaign. International deliveries can also be organised.

With little under 2 months left, I am taking my fundraising effort to my Yoga mat, where it all began. What better way to support me in my dreams by joining me for a Yoga Class !?

Starting with this Thursday 6th April, I'll be taking over the Bodhi Heat Yoga Classes in Muyenga, Kampala, every Thursday, starting at 6.15 pm, for the month of April 2017.

I'll be teaching a slow-flow meditative class, (which is beginner friendly, especially if you are new to yoga) in the Afrikan Yoga style I love. Everyone is welcome, and I hope to see many familiar and new faces joining in.

The class fee is 15,000 ugx per person, however if you feel moved to, extra donations are welcome. I'll be set up in the small building behind the restaurant, (simply ask any of the Fuego staff where the yoga classes are held, for further directions).

In case you are in Kampala and interested in joining one (or all) of my classes this month, here is a Google Map Link for further directions: https://goo.gl/maps/PpSv5rn3JsR2

Special thanks to Denise Ferris for this opportunity to take over her classes for the month, as well as everyone who has donated, online and offline so far. Namaste !

Wholeheartedly yours,

Liz Kamugisha

As part of my fundraising effort, I’ve started to think creatively ! After all, Uganda is ranked the most entrepreneurial country in the world. I’ve been inspired to put on my entrepreneur thinking cap on and come up with some creative ( and budget friendly ) ways you can contribute to my Karuna Yoga Teacher Training fund !

With Women's day coming up on 8th March, I'll be creating Goddess Portraits, in a vibrant and funky caricature style, which you can gift to the special women in your lives (or gift yourselves)!

You can order one by sending me a whatsapp message on +256 703 032 869 along with a reference photo. I’ll be taking orders until 4th March, and deliver the framed portraits on 8th March. Each framed Goddess Portrait will cost 50,000 ugx / $ 15 usd . If you're not based in Kampala, Uganda and would still like to order one, I can send it to you through a courier service (with a small additional fee).

If you love the feel of a clean yoga mat, but struggle to keep yours clean, let me help you with that ! I will also be offering a Yoga Mat Wash service at some of Kampala's Yoga Studios / Classes, for 20,000 ugx per yoga mat.

To get your mat cleaned;

  1. Attend a yoga class at any one of the following Yoga Classes within Kampala;
  2. Leave your dirty mat with your yoga teacher, along with your name and contacts. I will collect them for cleaning on Friday evening, wash and return them on Sunday evening, and you can collect them at your next yoga class.

Thank you for your support, every shilling and dollar is a great help to reaching my funding goal !
