Nairobi, Kenya

Africa Yoga Project is excited to announce our “Look Forward, Give Back” Seva Safari. This 10-day journey to Kenya offers personal growth, opening the hearts and minds of participants while creating a sustainable impact on our local community in the process.

Yoga in Action

Whether you are a yoga teacher or complete beginner, here is an opportunity to experience yoga beyond the mat. The Africa Yoga Project empowers leaders in the community by training yoga teachers and providing community classes at the Shine Center. We will have the opportunity to take part in the classes, hear incredible stories firsthand from these local change-makers and visit their outreach projects.

Share Service

Something remarkable happens when we come together for the purpose of being of service to one another. Whether it’s sharing a smile or a conversation, building a school or painting a wall, planting a garden or cooking a meal, when our hearts and minds invest in service to others, we discover the gifts we have to give to this world. We invite you to rediscover your gifts through this unique journey of service in the heart of Kenya.

Share Connection

Connection is the unique quality that makes a Seva Safari experience one of a kind. The Africa Yoga Project has established an incredibly inspirational community of Kenyans and people from around the world. To be on a Seva Safari is to become a part of this amazing family. On this trip, you will connect with the Kenyan community, and create new friendships that will stay close to your heart forever.

Sustainable Travel

AYP supports conservation efforts in Africa to protect our wildlife, and will allow you to experience animals in the wild in a conscious way.

Who Should Attend This Seva Safari?

This experience is suitable for any level of yoga and/or travel experience. The only requirement is to show up with an open mind and heart, in the spirit of giving. It is recommended that those below 16 years of age travel with a parent or guardian.

Meet your host!

Mary Tilson has been an avid supporter of the Africa Yoga Project for the last 4 years. After her first in-person experience attending classes at the Shine Center, visiting the outreaches in the slums of Nairobi and working with a Maasai village in Amboseli, she was sure it was an experience she needed to share with others.

Mary is an International Yoga Teacher who has led retreats, teacher trainings and service projects throughout Southeast Asia, India and Central America. She is passionate about socially conscious travel and truly living yoga by encouraging retreat participants to find deeper connection to the self and the world around us.

It is Mary’s goal to make life-changing travel experiences accessible to everyone with a willingness to say “YES!” If you’re curious, and want to find out if this is right for you email: info@marytilsonyoga.com.
