Goals for 2015:
I am excited to teach yoga in four beautiful locations in Nairobi with the pop up team, I teach both children and adults.

Main influences as a teacher:
Baron Baptiste, Brandon and James Mooney.

Biggest challenge where you teach:
Hygiene issues in the hall we teach.

For me yoga has made me a better person because:
It has brought out the leader in me. It has also broadened my worldview, as I have been able to travel and see other countries.

The most interesting experience I have had practicing yoga:
The opportunity to travel especially to USA.

When people see me I want them to see:
A leader, a role model and a change maker.

Yoga makes me feel:
Loved, Accepted and United.

I believe sharing yoga to my community will:
help give them a better quality of life as well as clarity.

The most important thing yoga has done for me is:
It has made me feel young and given me a source of income as well as an opportunity to be a leader.

What is one thing you want the world to know about you?  
I am a simple, humble, social, friendly and coachable person.

“Everybody should practice yoga because you become courageous,  fit, healthy more confident and fearless to face challenges. Yoga can prevent diseases like malaria and fevers.

I can really see a change in my students. Since starting yoga they can concentrate, they are more physically fit, and they can see hope ahead despite the fact that they don’t have parents. When we all come together to practice yoga it inspires me because I feel like I belong somewhere and I also feel like I want to be part of this good community that spreads the word of peace.

My students have lots of challenges in life, like losing their parents, but they keep coming to yoga because they feel love from the society and also they feel that someone really cares about them.

Yoga empowers me to spread the word of peace and to urge people to stop tribalism. Yoga has generated in me a new sense of being myself. Instead of having the “I can’t” status, now I have the “I can” mentality and it is up to me to stand up and try. Yoga has inspired me to serve my community by reaching out to different tribes within Kenya and asking them to live together as one because we all need each other.

Yoga has given me the opportunity to see the world in a new way. Now I see the world that needs love and care. There are people seeking for hope everywhere and we can give it to them.”
