Yogi Chocolate makes a difference : yoga during unemployment

Via on Feb 4, 2009

Today, I received this E-mail from Sara, founder of yogichocolate.com  I, and teachers from all over the world,  offer yoga for download on donation basis. It was such good news, I felt you would be happy to know about it, too.

“THANK YOU! Please read the thank you email below from one of your students. You make such a huge difference. Thank you for being an integral part of YogiChocolate.
We love you!

“hank you for an opportunity to purchase downloads on a donation basis.  I have been laid off from work since November, 2008.  Since times are very tough for me right now, I was glad to find your site and able to purchase downloads within my budget.  Yoga is keeping me centered and balanced during this difficult time.  Once I am back on my feet, I will definitely order from Yogichocolate in the future and I will donate more than what is offered.  So THANK YOU to all the teachers on this site who are willing to donate their wonderful and calming classes.
p.s.  In lieu of taking Kathyrn Budig’s workshop at Evolution Yoga this weekend (due to my financial situation), I will practice along with her on my recently purchased download … ahhhh!”

Yes, we made it through another downdog …



About Yesica Pineda

My name is Yésica Pineda-Moreno, though some people call me Yeye. I was born and raised in Mexico City. My mom and dad are wonderful people who raised me to believe that loving-kindness, peace of body, mind and soul ~ real happiness ~ are the only worthwhile goals in life, the rest is just history. At the age of 20, I was chosen a Mexican Musical Talent (Valores Juveniles = American Idol) between thousands of young people in the country. Such opportunity gave me the chance to travel to The United States and meet incredible famous people from whom I've learned plenty about the hard work involved in the public life and the challenges it represents to our spiritual growth. I recorded my solo album with 10 time’s Grammy winner engineer Rafa Sardina rafasardina.com, and the talented songwriter Rafa Esparza-Ruiz. You can find it in any digital store by searching "Yeye Organic Pop". When I thought there was nothing else to be achieved, I found Yoga, or Yoga found me. In 2000, I started training with Bryan Kest and educated myself in his school of Power Yoga, which eventually led me to the practice of Vipassana meditation with teacher S.N.Goenka dhamma.org, training which I consider my foundation. For more information about my Yoga Practice visit yogichocolate.com My current music project is called Planetary Moods ~ Pop Sanskrit and the exploration of different frequencies resonance. You can hear my music on on myspace Listen at our website Planetary Moods.
