Story

A few years ago i was contacted by Winston in Freetown who had just graduated as a yoga teacher, thanks to the Africa Yoga Project. He tracked me down and wanted to learn more about how to implement yoga therapeutically for young people, specifically those who had experienced trauma. Sierra Leone made a pledge in 2003 to find ways to remain in peace after years of traumatic war and sickness. Yoga is the way to reach that goal for many.

So, I was very excited to share my training with him and his colleagues..

We raised £600 in 2014 and we need another £3000 to cover costs such as hotel, meals, yoga mats and resources.
