Creating the opportunity to share yoga

 

Niki is a strong supporter of the Africa Yoga Project, an initiative that aims to educate, empower, elevate and employ young people from Africa using the transformational practice of yoga. Since its launch in 2007, there are now over 6,000 people that participate in more than 300 community yoga classes weekly in 80 locations. More than 98 young people, trained as teachers by Baron Baptiste, are earning a living wage by teaching yoga to people who otherwise would not have the opportunity. As a result those involved have benefitted from an increase in physical, emotional and mental wellbeing while also building healthy and empowered communities.
