Africa Yoga Project returns to Beaufort

in Arts by

Last September, Dancing Dogs Yoga hosted Yoga Aid for Africa Yoga Project in Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park. The event raised more than $14,000 that day for Africa Yoga Project.

Next week, two of the teachers who were helped during that fundraiser are coming to teach yoga in our studios. Walter Mugwe and Catherine Njeri are both certified baptiste yoga teachers. There will be a fundraiser in Beaufort on Thursday, October 3 from 6 to 9 p.m. and Friday, October 4 in Bluffton, 6 to 9 p.m.   Walter and Catherine will also be available for private lessons. The goal will be to raise substantial funds to respond to the September 21 attack in Kenya. The Africa Yoga Project will offer psychosocial services for those affected through their free yoga outreach classes. The group will also share an embodied experience of the mission of empowering change and hope through yoga.
