Yoga With Kui

It was a great honor to photograph Kui Wanyoike, an International Yoga Teacher based in Nairobi, Kenya.

''It is a mistake to think that the goal of yoga is only to get strong and flexible. Yes, you will get a strong, flexible body if you practice yoga. But if you focus exclusively on this you will miss the real gift of yoga, which is, inner peace''  Kui explains.

To her, Yoga is not just a physical practice but a path she walk everyday and with a purpose to unite the mind, body, and spirit with yoga.

Here's what we shot at Fourteen Falls, Thika, Kenya;

From a Daily Nation feature WOMAN OF PASSION, Kui expressed her Kenyan Dream; ''She dreams of building her own studio where she can welcome different teachers to teach their own types of yoga. For now though, she is content teaching yoga to as many Kenyans as she can.''

Kui Wanyoike is running a yoga business 'YogawithKui' with regular classes running in Karen, Lavington, Runda, Kilimani and even in schools. You can follow her work on instagram @nairobiyogarebel
