ABOUT 2018 HHH Fall

Hugs. Handstands. Happiness. We can not think of three other words that describe walking into to the Africa Yoga Project Shine Center, our community based yoga center where hundreds of people practice yoga weekly in Nairobi, Kenya. We want to bring the contagious energy, enthusiasm and talents of AYP Teachers to communities across the US with our bi-annual tour. 

This tour spans a month during which 2-4 AYP yoga instructors from Africa travel across North America stopping for 3-4 days in each location hosted by individuals like YOU. They will teach yoga classes, share food, stories and explore your community with you! Want to host? Email
