Liquido for African Yoga Project
Liquido recently released a limited edition legging to benefit the education and wellness projects that Africa Yoga Project (AYP) supports throughout Africa. The African Sunrise legging was designed exclusively for AYP with 10% of all sales going towards continued support of their programs to spread joy and awareness domestically and abroad.
This bright and beautiful pattern legging is available in size small through x-large. This limited edition item can be purchased directly from our website for $85.00.
AYP’s core activities include: yoga practice, meditation, self-exploration through inquiry, performing arts as a vehicle for empowerment, health education (HIV/AIDS), relationship building, and community activism. All of their programs are designed to increase physical, emotional and mental wellbeing on the individual level while also building healthy and empowered communities.
AYP provides a scholarship-based, 200-hour teacher training course to residents aged 18-25 in slums and informal settlements around Kenya. The goal is to help these trained yoga teachers spread health throughout their communities while also providing them with a stable income. Through this program, AYP empowers over 250,000 Kenyans a year through the power of yoga. The 100+ AYP teachers see no boundaries of sharing this practice. They teach in prisons, schools, special needs centers, HIV/AIDS support groups, deaf schools and rural villages. More information can be found at www.africayogaproject.org.
These are just two examples of projects that Liquido is currently involved in to make an important mark on this world.
“The most rewarding part of what we do at Liquido is to see how empowered our customers are when they are wearing our product—to see women feel confident, self-assured and beautiful in our active wear lines is such an incredible feeling! Equally rewarding are the projects we’re involved in to give back. Humanitarian causes are such an important and valued component to our business and the lives that we can impact. If I can encourage others to do one thing it’s this: be the kind of person (or business) that leaves the world better then you found it.”
