We are raising money to grow a powerful yoga program in Haiti with Ayiti Yoga Outreach and train women to become Spiritually Fly ChangeMakers in their communities.

Faith Hunter and Lizandra Vidal are excited to present the first annual Spiritually Fly ChangeMakers Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) in Washington DC held at Embrace Yoga Studio, July 21-August 3, 2014.

Spiritually Fly ChangeMakers are more than yoga instructors. They are teachers who upon completion of this program will have the leadership skills necessary to make the world a strong, healthy, connected, and peaceful place. The training will be attended by over a dozen American and international students, including the three Haitian women we are sponsoring, with your help. 

We are raising money to pay for Mamay, Spinosa and Ildat's travel expenses, lodging & meals while in DC for the training, and also seed money for each to establish local yoga practices in their home communities - money that will allow them to put their yoga to work!

Haiti has been chosen as the first Spiritually Fly ChangeMakers International Focus Country.

India Pilgrimage


Back to the motherland! The home of yoga, mystics, mantras, sadhus, chanting, samaosas, Ayurveda and most of all devotion and love! Without a guide it’s easy to get lost in the craziness of modern India. To decipher the mystery Raghunath will be that guide to introduce you to spiritual India. Visiting like yogi’s- not tourists. We’re not going to park it at some hotel and do asanas. This is the real deal. Raghu will take you to the holy cities and villages that have been dear to the yogi’s and devotees since before recorded time. He will teach asana, and philosophy regularly and give reading assignments from books of ancient India so you can enter into the mood. More than tourism it will be a chance to learn and grow. We’ll learn meditation techniques, bathe in sacred rivers, and dine on authentic and excellent vegetarian food. Because he has spent a lot of time in India with sadhu’s and saints, We will meet up with other guides, friends, Vedic astrologers, palmists, & swami’s whom Raghunath knows of, or has known intimately for years. We’re going to deepen our understanding of yoga culture. With a proper guide India can be a portal to another time-an ancient spiritual culture. It still exists side by side with the modern. As you discover it you will consequently discover your self a little more and then your life will never be the same. Space is limited so we invite you join the adventure.
