Dear yoga Soul,
My name is Tareq, a Syrian Yogi living in Lebanon.
Because of the war in my country, Syria, I’m not able to go back home, i have been away for more than 5 years, and I lost all what i had there; in addition to that, 3 years ago i lost my dream job which I had for 10 years. Living in a foreign country without the right for a permit to work, and not finding a job elsewhere because of the restrictions on my nationality, put me in depression.
Not to talk much, I found the light on a Yoga mat, so I got the Yoga teacher certification and started teaching for free. Its not allowed for me to work as a Yoga teacher here unless I am the owner of a business, so I am seeking the help of the Yoga community around the world to help me have a small Yoga studio where I can standup again and contribute to delivering the message of Yoga to all people. In return and as a sign of gratitude, I will be assigning free classes for Syrian refugees who cannot afford Yoga otherwise.
The amount I seek to raise covers the rent of a yoga centre/space for a year
Having been raised as a proud and humble human being, it is very hard for me to ask for help. I now got to a point where I realize that my turn has come to ask for help, until I can help back again.
Warm thanks and gratitude,
