Elizabeth Muthoni

My name is Elizabeth Muthoni. I was born on the 17th of September in 1988 as the firstborn of a family of three in the Mount Kenya region of Kenya. I have always welcomed interacting and socializing and enjoy bringing people together. I joined the Africa Yoga Project in 2013 after completing a 200 hour teacher training for which I was awarded a scholarship. The training was held in Nairobi during that April and was facilitated by an established American yoga instructor, Kiersten Mooney. In July of 2013, I received a certificate for a Level II teacher training in Malindi, Kenya which was lead by Baron Baptiste. Both trainings greatly impacted my life by increasing my self-esteem and allowing me to pursue my dream to help people in a powerful way while continuing to learn who I am supposed to be in life. After becoming a full AYP yoga instructor, I have attended various trainings for different types of yoga such as Ashtanga. I have also studied how to deliver yoga classes to specialized populations including able-bodied and special needs children, prenatal yoga, and yoga for those who have survived psychological traumas. These have improved my teaching and expanded my skills and techniques. My best moments are when I share my knowledge and skills with my community because I prove to myself that I am strong and can make an impact on the whole world. I am proud of being a yoga teacher and thankful for all whom have helped me reach this goal.
