A $1.5 million crowdfunding campaign for a new yoga studio has raised $1,000,000 for a young yoga teacher who will teach students in the future.
The company, Tim Dyson, is planning to open a studio in New York in the fall of 2019.
The studio, called Cosmic Kids, will feature a large, glass space that will accommodate up to 300 students.
Dyson is also working on a new class called “Cosmic Warriors,” which will offer a unique approach to yoga, the New York Times reports.
Dickson said the project is aimed at helping the students “find a deeper connection with their bodies and their universe.”
Dyson said he wanted to create an environment where students would feel more connected to the universe, and to feel more grounded in their own body.
He said he has a special interest in yoga because he has experienced it first-hand, and wants to share it with others.
Dinson’s website says he began yoga at age 13, and has been working in the field since 2014.
He teaches yoga in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and Washington, D.C. “I’ve worked with thousands of students, teachers, parents and friends and never once have I felt I was doing it wrong,” he told The New York Post.
“We are creating an environment that allows people to feel comfortable, safe, and joyful.”
Dickson has received praise from some yoga teachers and celebrities.
In January, he became the first yoga teacher in New Jersey to get a yoga teacher’s certificate.
