Urban Ashram for African Kundalini Yoga Association
Organized by: Shanti Khalsa
AKYTTSA, African Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training Foundation of Southern Africa, was formed in 2015 and is dedicated to spreading Yogi Bhajan’s teachings throughout marginalized communities in Southern Africa through a movement called Kundalini Africa Rising. Kundalini Africa Rising teaches free weekly yoga classes in Alexandra (Yoga4 Alex), Soweto (Yoga4Soweto), and the inner city of Johannesburg, areas which are identified as being historically disadvantaged due to apartheid. One of our goals is to purchase a building for an inner-city yoga center as there is no accessible Kundalini Yoga ashram as yet in Southern Africa. In order to further our goals of serving marginalized communities in Southern Africa, we need an ashram situated in the heart of the city which is easily accessed by those who do not have the means to travel. To reach the goals of Kundalini Africa Rising, we need funding, and so we are appealing to our worldwide community to assist us in realizing our dreams. All funds donated at CrowdRise will be transfered directly to AKYTTSA.
