April 8: Special Yoga Class to Benefit Rwandan Youth Village

Stories from the Mat: From Rwanda to Yoga

April is Genocide Awareness Month. Please join me this Sunday, April 8, 5:30pm at FloYo Coral Gables for a donation-based yoga class to benefit the Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village in Rwanda, a place dear to my heart and home to more than 500 orphaned teens.

I'll share my journey of how I started practicing yoga after living abroad for six years in the Czech Republic and Rwanda working in higher education and international development. I'll then guide you through a 60-minute vinyasa flow class (all levels) to Rwandan music. We'll end with a dialogue and Q+A. Refreshments will be provided thanks to the generous support of Raw Juce.


At the end of class, I'll be giving away handmade Rwandan gifts and a Lululemon Mat courtesy of Lululemon Brickell City Centre, MiamiLululemon was the first company I worked for after moving back to the USA!


Please bring cash or check donations made payable to the Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village. You can also donate online.


The studio is located at 1430 S. Dixie Hwy, Suite 116. Coral Gables, FL 33146, next to Madruga Bakery and Raw Juce.




MISSION: Their goal is to enable orphaned and vulnerable youth to realize their maximum potential by providing them with a safe and secure living environment, health care, education and necessary life skills. Education and service are used to model and create socially responsible citizens in Rwanda and around the world.
