Africa Yoga Project To Bring Fitness Fridays to the Solution Centre

Sawa World is always looking for ways to brighten lives and pass on meaningful solutions to local youth.  To that end we are proud to announce our latest partnership with the Africa Yoga Project (AYP) as a means to offer employment to youth instructors who have chosen yoga as their local solution to lift themselves out of poverty.  Starting July 1, Kampala’s new Solution Centre will launch Fitness Fridays when AYP-trained yoga instructors will give classes to enrich both body and soul.  Participants will have a chance to experience a moment of relaxation and serenity while moving their bodies.

The Africa Yoga Project aims to empower, educate, elevate and employ un- or underemployed youth from marginalized communities in East Africa through the practice of yoga.  With a yoga teacher training program and a mentorship program supporting local employment, the Africa Yoga Project has given hundreds of teachers and class participants a new start in community health and wellness.

Sawa World’s partnership with the Africa Yoga Project is yet another innovation that lends credence to the notion that solutions start from within.
