Dream could be a reality with your help

Aspiring yoga instructor Jocelyn-Rochelle Stewart is going all out to raise money to see her fulfilling her dream of becoming a qualified yoga teacher and she’s asking this community to help her.

Rochelle practices Power Living Australia Yoga (P.L.A.Y.) and the only course on offer in this part of the world stretches over two separate week-long intensive training sessions, the first in Byron Bay, Australia in March followed by the second week in Wellington in April.

At very short notice funding promised by her father to meet the course costs is no longer available so rather than get down-hearted about this, Jocelyn-Rochelle has been busy selling raffle tickets with some fabulous prizes — it’s a way of helping herself to achieve her goal to bring back her experiences to this town she loves.

“My vision is to be able to teach yoga here in Raglan and while there are quite a few yoga groups operating, and the basic postures are the same, each one has its distinctions”, she says.

Her ‘yoga dream raffle’ has two draws. One prize is an awesome hamper donated by generous business owners from Raglan and surrounding districts. The other prize is six-months free yoga .

Power Living Yoga is designed for the western world and for those who want to get a sweat up with an ideal room temperature of between 30-33 degrees centigrade. Jocelyn is passionate about yoga, siting her own experiences in its transformative capacities.

“It settles and opens the mind and gives balance to life. It’s powerful for the body and wonderful for flexibility and with so many forms of yoga there is a type for every age group.”

By supporting Jocelyn-Rochelle with her ‘can-do’ attitude to help herself she will soon be back in this town with the requisite skills to teach her yoga to anyone who is interested. Watch this space!
The raffle closes Friday 8th March (tomorrow).

If you want to purchase a $2 raffle ticket from Jocelyn-Rochelle please pop into Glamour in Raglan’s main street where she works part-time.
