Joshua Bell-Altizer Grant

“…wake up and move forward consciously. Not doing everything perfectly, and not thinking you ever could. But doing things consciously and with intention. Intention is sacred, because energy follows thought.”

Joshua William Bell-Altizer 1987 – 2020

Joshua is remembered as a passionate human who loved intensely and cared deeply. His inner beauty and strength shone. His big smile, sense of humour, and giggle could illuminate a room.

In August 2019, he completed the Salt Spring Centre of Yoga’s 200 Hour Teacher Training. Later that year, he travelled India to study and volunteer at the orphanage Babaji founded, Sri Ram Ashram. He continued to develop his practice at 7 Chakras Yoga School in Rishikesh.

In January 2020, he started teaching yoga to men at the Comox Valley Recovery Centre where he himself had received treatment. He came full circle. His intention was to keep studying, traveling, writing, and teaching. His dream was to become a healer and share his gifts with others.

Sadly, Josh had an undiagnosed heart issue and died of a heart attack as he slept, at the age of 32. Although his dream was cut short, we are proud to keep it alive through opportunities for other aspiring teachers to explore their own yoga journey at the Salt Spring Centre of Yoga’s Teacher Training Programs.

We are grateful to his friends, teachers and donors for this generous gift.
