For as long as I can remember, I've been teaching: first as a youth counselor, then a high school teacher, a martial arts instructor, and now I am entering my 5th year as a yoga teacher. I'm a Yoga Alliance ERYT-200 certified instructor, and I've had the honor of leading and/or coaching almost a dozen teacher trainings. I've seen firsthand how Yoga has the power to transform people's lives.
My goal is to bring the healing and wellness-promoting benefits of yoga to as many people as possible. I've wanted to open a brick and mortar studio, but in LA this can cost over 200k just to open the doors. An online business, however, costs only a fraction of that amount to start and maintain. In order to survive, yoga and fitness instructors must teach a large number of classes: often we have to travel to and from numerous studios, gyms, and private client's homes. This can be costly and exhausting, and not always profitable.
As a graduate with a degree in educational technology, I've always believed that online learning is a great way to reach students who, for whatever reason, have difficulty getting into a classroom or studio. My goal is to make Laura Teaches Yoga an online Yoga academy that is accessible to everyone, everywhere.
Through this campaign I hope to cover the costs of bandwidth, server hosting and file storage, equipment, marketing and studio rental. In exchange for your generosity, you will get VIP access to classes, seminars and more!
