Yoga Mangala Uganda

I am very happy that classes have now been underway for the last couple of months here in Kampala; Uganda with two new yoga spaces and a little growing community consisting of 19 children from the age of 8 up to teenagers and 8 adult practitioners.  I am extremely happy that almost all the children attending class are Ugandan and I am able to share this wonderful practice of yoga with them and impart health and knowledge for them to build on.  These kids are our future so it really brings a big smile to my heart to begin with them and see them really enjoying either the peace they gain after a long day at their studies as they lie in Savasana, or the fun they are having learning with patience and excitement such postures as handstand and the crow, tipping themselves upside down and showing their feet to the sky!
It is always a challenge to start somewhere new and find new people to share a practice with growing together, but I am determined to make a go of it here, I have been walking the miles giving out flyers, posting on social network sites, maybe I should start shouting from the rooftop, but I am ready to put my energy into bringing classical yoga here and sharing its benefits.  It seems my way of teaching and trust in the classical approach is a little different from what may have been experienced from a yogic point of view here in Africa, where the word power seems to crop up a lot!!! But with that I will find the power within to keep to a traditional approach, I have great faith in my Guru’s and all that I have learnt so far, but I would love to see a few adult Ugandans coming to see what this is all about, maybe the community class on the 7th of November will tempt some to the mat!
Let the adventure continue!!!
Please come across the miles to join me, or if you are here in Kampala then come across the jams to Butabika, breathe fresh air and join a group class at Gems Cambridge International School, times as below.
