What excites me the most about Sanctuary Sweat is the marriage of faith and fitness. Most yoga studios promote to be spiritual but offer nothing to enrich the souls of their clients. Sanctuary Sweat will be bold about their faith with out being preachy. I have been working to collaborate with christian rappers and christian artist that are willing to provide permission to use their music to serve urban beats to minister to the hearts of the students who take class. The yoga will have 4 formats true for beginners in yoga & in faith, high intensity yoga where christian rap & faster pace movements merge, R&B christian slower music will marry with yoga using resistance bands & core focus training & lastly yin yoga that will stretch the body with longer pose holds and stretch the mind allowing worship music, christian meditation and stillness stretch their mind. Cost to create the app but I have faith that God will provide the start up cost as long as I seize opportunities like this.
Urban & non-religious communities will benefit most from this idea. Sanctuary Sweat’s intention is to nourish not just the body but also the soul. Sanctuary Sweat will teach millions to create a safe space within their own home. Saving anxiety of being late or paying a huge fee, yoga has the ability to reveal stress held inside the body and this app will teach people how to heal from the inside out from past pain, anxiety and depression, this is more then physical health but a mental health app.
What I Will Do With $5,000
Receiving this grant will be the catalyst to bring this idea from a mere dream but to reality. I will use the $5000 to fund the cost of production for my first sanctuary sweat series for the app, and the cost to pay the fees to trademark and protect this brand.
