I am campaigning for a friend and Yoga Teacher, Glen Baez. This is to help fund his apprenticeship for an 800 hr Yoga certification. I beleive in this teacher and am grateful for your contribution in his continued studies. ANA


Glen Baez is from Washington Heights, New York. He was born into a loving Dominican family at Harlem Hospital,in 1987. At an early age he was encouraged by his father in the ways of music, philosophy and spirituality. Growing up in the Bronx he attended school with uninterested students, disappointed teachers, and difficult times. Glen was hungry for knowledge. Inspired by his parents work ethic, he continued to learn even in his challenged surroundings. Glen lost his father to lung cancer when he was 10. He was left to care for his hard-working mom and younger brother.

At 17, Glen found Yoga. To stay off the street, he quickly immersed himself into a daily yoga practice and self study through reading, attending classes via work-study at the yoga center by cleaning mats. The Yoga Center was a healing sanctuary for him. In 2012, Glen was awarded a scholarship to attend a 300 hr Jivamukti Yoga Teacher Training.

Glen is currently is 300 hr Jivamukti Certified and teaches yoga in Manhattan, including teenagers in the ghettos. Glen directs the kids enthusiasm to do good in their lives. He has a daily Ashtanga Yoga practice with Eddie Stern at the Temple on Broom Street and is Founder of 'Street Temple" a Yoga Practice for all people in the hood by donation only.

We appreciate your donation and loving support. It will go far around the hoods of New York City and to the youth of our future, as you can see here in the Video.

Thank you, Namaste.
