GBYF Project Spotlight: Africa Yoga Project

Here at Give Back Yoga, watching grant recipients’ projects blossom and grow is deeply inspiring. So we were thrilled to see a stunning photo essay by photographer Robert Sturman on MindBodyGreen.com that showcases the work being done by one of our early grantees, Africa Yoga Project.

Several years ago, we donated a gift of yoga clothing for use by AYP participants, including women and juvenile prisoners in the Nairobi area. At Lengata Women’s Prison (pictured), AYP nourishes the bodies and spirits of incarcerated women through yoga, art therapy and a meal. The children of prisoners are also served by AYP right on the premises.

Africa Yoga Project touches the lives of thousands of Kenyans in diverse communities. To meet more of them through Robert’s inspiring images, click here.
