Township Yogi Project
The Township Yogi Project offers free yoga classes to people living in townships in South Africa. We set up grassroots yoga studios, or find venues in the heart of township communities, and with the help of volunteer yoga, we are able to provide free and regular yoga classes to those living in townships who need it most - including children and the elderly, HIV/Aids and TB sufferers, and those who are victims of crime, violence and unemployment. Another aim of the Township Yogi Project is to empower unemployed people in township communities, by training them to become qualified yoga teachers. As accredited yoga instructors, they then go back into their communities and teach yoga to those who need it most.
