Umoja means unity in Swahili. No matter where you come from, we are all one.
The concept of Umoja is that we are one unified human collective. We may have our own backgrounds, stories, likes and dislikes, but together we are one. Every yoga practice reminds us....we are one.

The concept of Umoja is that we are one unified human collective. We may have our own backgrounds, stories, likes and dislikes, but together we are one.
My name is Teresa, and I'm hosting a Seva Safari - a service trip - to Kenya in October 2020. The first time I went to Kenya, I had an amazing experience that I couldn't describe in words. Until I learned this concept of Umoja. Oneness. Unity.
I know yoga has the power to create Umoja. Once I am on the mat, I find a sense connection, calm and a healing that I can't find anywhere else.
The opportunity to see first-hand the good that AYP does for the African community was amazing; people come together from all over Africa and the rest of the world to share the practice, to learn and become self-sufficient in their lives. The experience was life changing, the feeling of community and the healing I saw was so deeply moving, now....
I'm going back, and I want you to come, too.
