“I believe in contributing to the wellness of all beings across the world by using the transformative power of yoga”

 

Irene Auma is a Certified Baptiste Instructor and graduate of the first team of Africa Yoga Project. She has additional certifications in teaching kids yoga with Next Generation Yoga and Yoga for the Special  Child.  Irene believes in contributing to the wellness of all beings across the world by using the transformative power of yoga. She feels everybody should practise yoga because it heals many wounds and promotes unity, connection and being of service around the world. The Slums in Nairobi can be lacking of possibility potential.  By bringing yoga into the Slum communities, we have brought in new possibilities for many. The most important thing yoga has taught Irene is standing for the possibility of each of her students and serving her community. Irene believes doing yoga together in the community motivates her and she can not give up. Her motto is: “I stand on hope”.
