One Mango Tree at Yoga Within
Yoga Within is a beautiful studio in Munyonyo, a community nestled on the shores of Lake Victoria in Kampala, Uganda. Kevin and Gavin, the studio owners and both teachers themselves, created a truly peaceful space and a thriving yoga community. I started teaching yoga classes at their studio upon moving to Kampala, and was thrilled when Kevin approached me about equipping their studio with yoga props. Yoga Within was the site of a month-long, 200-hour Yoga Alliance teacher training course in April. One Mango Tree provided bolsters, meditation cushions, large cushion covers and eye pillows to outfit the studio for their training and growing classes. The meditation cushions and eye pillows will be available for sale in the US in June, so stay tuned! They promise to sell out quickly.
If you find yourself in Kampala, please be sure to stop by the studio for a class. Sunday mornings are my favorite, followed by tea and treats and then an afternoon of reading and swimming at Speke Munyonyo, which is only a short walk down the road.
