Educate, empower, elevate, and expand employment with youth in Africa using the transformational practice of yoga.
The teachings and practice of yoga, the original inspiration and foundation for the Africa Yoga Project organization, continue to be the primary vehicle for our work.
Yoga has empowered millions of people across the world by supporting physical, mental and emotional health, facilitating authentic personal expression, building supportive communities, and inspiring positive action to contribute to others. We are dedicated to delivering all that yoga has to offer to the diverse communities of East Africa, while at the same time providing opportunities for members of the global yoga community to participate and contribute.
