So, today while I’m away training with Baron in Colorado, I thought it would be a great opportunity to share with y’all a special project that is very near and dear to my heart: The Africa Yoga Project.
The Africa Yoga Project is a charity dedicated to training Kenyan yoga teachers to go out in the slums of Nairobi and teach power yoga to men, women and children. In an area where many are affected by HIV/AIDS and live on less than two dollars a day ,this empowering practice, quite simply, gives them something to live for. It brings unity, possibility, leadership and empowerment to people that need it most and might not normally have access to such a gift.
And……on October 2nd, my studio is hosting a very special two hour practice with a live skype-in from Francis (that’s him in the Facebook profile photo!), our yoga mentee, from Kenya! All proceeds from the event go straight to the Yoga Aid Challenge as we’re trying to raise enough money to train and hire four new Kenyan instructors that will further spread the love and make a huge difference in people’s lives.
So, if you live somewhere in Northern California…come out, play with us and help us support such an amazing cause! And if you don’t, I would really appreciate any donations that may be on your heart. Every little bit makes a difference and from watching the above video you know how many lives are impacted by this program! It’s truly amazing.
Thank you for being awesome!! You can make donations by clicking here or by clicking the super cool widget I’ve got goin’ on my sidebar right now.
