Welcome to Trish Corley's Page!
What inspires me most about the Africa Yoga Project (AYP) is that everyone involved has a passion for life and for causing positive change in all people. In 2014, I attended my Baptiste level 2 training that was led by Paige Elenson (co-founder of AYP) and assisted by several of the AYP teachers. They taught me that we are all truly connected. Regardless of where I am from or where I am going, I am not alone in wanting love and joy in my life. When we work together and stand for each other, peace amongst everyone is possible.
Every story about the Africa Yoga Project inspires me and I am excited to create a new story with them. I will travel to Kenya in April 2017 to assist my teacher Paige, in leading the next AYP teacher training.
Your donation will support the growth and development of unemployed youth in Africa to become employable yoga teachers. In addition to fighting poverty, these teachers bring yoga to slums, orphanages, prisons, and a variety of places that benefit from the lessons that peace amongst all of us is possible.
With love and gratitude for your support,
Trish is a Baptiste certified yoga teacher currently based in Singapore. She has been teaching yoga since 2011.

She uses her knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics to create an environment for all students to feel safe and grounded AND free and open. Trish loves to use yoga to create community. There is an intention to connect herself and all of her students together through physical movement and breath in each of her classes and trainings. She encourages students to explore possibilities they are not even aware of on and off of the mat.
