Looking for Sponsored Yogis 2013-2014

As you may know, here at Alive in the Fire I have a group of Sponsored Yogis who I support in their yoga journey. It's been two years since I selected the original 8 yogis and I am excited to say I am now accepting applications for Sponsored Yogis 2013-2014!

This year I am hoping to select 3-4 local yogis (northern CA) as well as 3-4 yogis anywhere in the world.

Here are the details...
  • Anyone can apply! Beginners, advanced students, teachers... any style of yoga.
  • To qualify for the nor Cal group, you'll need to be somewhere within 200 miles of Sacramento.
  • Yogis who are selected for the group will receive free yoga gear and studio classes, the chance to write for Alive in the Fire, support and advice from me, and the chance to connect with a wonderful group of fellow yogis. For the local group, I hope to organize some in-person yoga activities and meetups, too!
  • Occasionally I may also ask the group to promote the blog to your local yoga community and I hope to get the sponsored yogis involved in recruiting stories for Real Men Do Yoga and the karma yoga series.
  • Once I'm certified to teach in early 2014, I hope to offer free classes (or one-on-one sessions) to the local yogi group. You guys get to be some of my guinea pigs and give me feedback on teaching, so we'll all be students of each other! :)
  • Applications are due by October 31, 2013 November 15th, 2013!

My goal as a blogger is to share joy with others, and the Sponsored Yogis program is one of my favorite ways to do that. Please apply only if you are interested in engaging in a creative and collaborative relationship; like on the mat, you'll get more out of the program if you put more into it!

To fill out an application, please send me an email at aliveinthefire at gmail dot com and I'll get you started! 
The process will be simple: I'll require you to write a short bio and a little bit on why you would be a great fit for the blog.

Hope to hear from you soon, beautiful readers! Namaste.
