OK, so I know that this is a metaphor that’s more extended than your average Yoga Master, but it occurs to me that there are some similarities between yoga and fundraising, which I’ve been doing for a couple of decades longer.

Yoga seems to focus around achieving balance - not just in the body, but in the mind, and in life. As it happens, balance is equally important to fundraising. In particular, it’s important to get the balance right between researching potential fundraising sources, making the approaches/applications, and then account management.
