Richard Kitoshi

I attended my first yoga teacher training in 2012 in Nairobi, Kenya. Under the tutelage of Sharon Moon of the Jois Foundation, I was trained in the style of Ashtanga yoga. In 2013, I attended the Africa Yoga Project (AYP) 200hr Teacher Training. Through this training, I was taught by Kiersten Mooney, Lisa Taylor, and AYP’s founder Paige Elenson. Within the same year, I attended the Level 2 Teacher Training, taught by Baron Baptiste in Malindi, Kenya.

I have also completed the Next Generation Yoga training, which emphasizes on children from 2-13 years old. This training was lead by Jodi Komitor, the author of the best-selling book, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Yoga with Kids. In 2014, I attended a four module-based Level 1 Kundalini Teacher Training, from which I successfully graduated in February of 2015.

At the start of my career within teaching yoga, I began by teaching at a rehabilitation centre for girls in Kirigiti, Kiambu, and Kenya. I also taught mothers living within the slum area of Huruma in Nairobi.

Nowadays, I can be found teaching at the Shine Center on weekday evenings or occasionally on Sunday afternoons. I have also extended my love for yoga by teaching privately in upcoming yoga studios, gyms, and residential areas. I look forward to one-day run my own yoga studio in the hopefully near future.

Africa Yoga Project Educates, Empowers, Elevates and Expands Employability with youth in Africa using the transformational practice of yoga. Our vision is to create opportunities for youth to step into their greatness and become self-sustaining leaders in their communities.
