Wanji is the brand manager for Africa Yoga Project. Before this, she was the studio manager for the AYP Shine Center, our community wellness and yoga center in Nairboi, Kenya, and Mentor Program Coordinator in Kenya connecting the mentees and mentors to create consistent and successful communication.
She has been with AYP since her first class in December of 2009. In that first class, she made up her mind that yoga was the thing she wanted to do in her life. In 2011, she attended Baron Baptiste’s leadership workshop and since then has been teaching in her community and is now teaching in the AYP Shine Center. Wanji is currently at Kenya Institute of Management getting a degree in Business Management. She has also received a certification in computer skills.
Wanji is leading change by demonstrating the importance of yoga to women with HIV/AIDS and encouraging former criminals to lead a more positive life. She believes when we come together to practice yoga it inspires us to share ideas and release all the stress in our lives.
