Michelle Newman became an ambassador to the Africa Yoga Project in June of 2013, along with Team Next Generation Yoga, when she embarked upon a trip of a lifetime to Nairobi, Kenya with 16 other yogis on a mission to bring the very first children's yoga training to AYP.
AYP is a non - profit organization that brings well - being to over 7,000 people per week in Kenya as well as provides yoga teaching jobs to hundreds of young people in Kenya.
While in Kenya, Team NGY raised over $100,000 for AYP, delivered a 6 - day kids yoga teacher training to over 60 AYP teachers and shared yoga with hundreds of children in schools, orphanages, women's prisons and in a Masai Village.
Donations to the AYP Children's Yoga Program goes toward covering the annual salary of AYP's Kids Yoga Coordinator. This is an ongoing program and is in need of continued support.
