Nairobi Kenya Africa Yoga

Margaret Njeri, 23, in her apartment in Kariobangi, Nairobi, breast-feeds her daughter Kinndli, named after her mentor. Margaret was an acrobat before starting the Africa Yoga Project program to become a yoga teacher in 2007. "It was not easy to earn a living with acrobatics," she recalls, "it was easy to injure yourself and the money was very little, so often, we were doing petty crimes." She believed that yoga was a religion, but when she finally tried it for the first time, she really liked it because it is both physical and has a strong meditation aspect to it.
