Yoga in Africa? Yes, Yoga!

Posted on April 3, 2012

Hey, My name is Billy and I am the Community Relations Coordinator for the Africa Yoga Project. Yoga in Africa? Yes, Yoga!  I have been practicing yoga for the last five years. I have taken up a consistent practice in the last two years and inside this time I have been able to work on myself – both on the mat and off. I have been removing layers of “stuff” that stop me from being my most powerful self.  Things like Pride, fear, failure, hatred, the list is endless, took away my balance on the mat. In my practice I have been able to work on getting my center. Once in a while they sneak in , which is how human I am, it is then very powerful for me to find the few minutes in a day when I can be  physically present to these challenges of life and work a way to find balance. That is, on my mat, being with my body at the time.ahhhhhh! Best feeling ever!

Through Africa Yoga Project and Baron Baptiste, I have been trained to teach and share this wonderful practice. Although our project actually takes place in Nairobi, Kenya, in environments that may be very different from where you are reading this, what we are experiencing is GLOBAL and relates to each and everyone. We created this blog to create a space where we can share and connect.  In addition to that, one major catalyst to our growth is feedback. Do you feel inspired? or may be not?  We want to hear from you. Feel free to comment  and connect on this space.


From Spain, I wish you the best, yoga is a blessing for all of us. I’ll follow you.

What you are doing is absolutely amazing. I´m inspired by every picture you post, every shared experienced, every comment.
I´m in Argentina, physically apart; but always with you all.
