White Gold Yoga, Whistler

DONATE HERE

My world changed when I met Catherine and Moses, two AYP teachers, at my level 2 teacher training with Baron Baptiste in May 2010. I came home and started fundraising for Africa Yoga Project after hearing their stories and what they are up to. I had no idea the journey I was about to embark on, I just knew I was a big YES! 
 
I created a regular fundraising initiative called the Yoga Jam Events in Whistler BC. They were immediately popular and well attended and I managed to raise about $12,000 before heading to Africa to see the funds at work.
I visited Africa Yoga Project in November 2011 with the intention to share all that I have to offer. As a graphic designer I recognized AYP's need for a global presence and I saw that one gap was professional photography. I got busy fundraising again to buy a ticket for a photographer I hugely admire, Robin O'Neill. She joined me in Nairobi and we got to work. Since then I have deepened my commitment to AYP and I work as their graphic designer, developing and designing their brand, designing their website, all print collateral, clothing design as well as social media posts. 
 
I plan to return to Africa to connect with this amazing family! I am so honoured to work with such vibrant, giving people. I continue to fundraise because I believe with all my heart that yoga is the way to peace. One breath at a time, we can help others.
Please participate in a Yoga Jam Event or donate to this campaign! Your support is felt like ripples on a great ocean of generosity.
 
Much love,
 
Erin
