Township Yogi Project NPC
The Township Yogi Project offers free yoga classes to people living in townships in South Africa, including children and the elderly, HIV/Aids and TB sufferers, and those who are victims of crime, violence and unemployment. We set up grassroots yoga studios, or find venues in the heart of township communities, and with the help of volunteer yoga teachers, we provide free and regular yoga classes to those living in townships who need it most. Township Yogi Project also empowers 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 patients in Aids hospices, recovering Whoonga addicts in drug rehab centres, children in schools, and the youth on the streets.
