Hello! My name is Alexandra Negulescu and I will be volunteering in a project with Africa Yoga Project (AYP) in Nairobi, Kenya April 16-27th, 2019. My goal is to raise $4000 by April 2019. Through this project, I will be assisting the annual 200-hour Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher Training held for over 50 young men and women from Africa. 100% of all the donations I raise will go towards the Africa Yoga Project (the cost of my personal trip is completely seperate).

A key element of the Africa Yoga Project program is the outreach yoga classes where the instructors both give back to the community and hone their skills as a yoga instructor. Africa Yoga Project teachers are reaching over 6000 people a week in the 300 free community classes.  AYP in over 80 locations throughout the informal settlements of Nairobi which includes schools, orphanages, deaf centers, special needs schools, prisons, and HIV/AIDs treatment centers. Each of the teachers is committed to sharing yoga with 5 outreach classes per week. They empower them to find the outreach classes themselves within their own communities which creates connection


It all started 3 years ago when I've decided to take a 200-hour teacher training to feed my curiosity about yoga. Yoga helped me win the battle over a serious depression. At the end of the teacher training I started to teach yoga to empower and help other people in the same way yoga helped me. After a couple of months I've met the owners of Power Yoga Romania who introduced me to their style of yoga, Baptiste Yoga. Fell in love with this style of yoga and went to my first Baptiste Yoga training, Level One: Journey into Power. The experience was so amazing and it made me realized how powerful I am. After this training made a firm decision on teaching this style of yoga and made the commitment to do this as a full time job. No more other distractions. Level Two: The Sannyasin's Journey followed naturally in the same year. I was eager to discover something new about myself and how I can make an impact in other people's lives. None of these trainings would have been possible without the help of other people. They become a reality, through fundraising and for the first time in my life I have felt the love and support of a true community. The time to give back has come for me and attending this program is about helping and empowering other people's lives.

I love practicing and teaching yoga. It has changed my life in so many positive ways and I need your help to empower other people's lives.
