Baron Baptiste has been an influence on the international and American yoga scene for over two decades. His message and the methodology of Baptiste Yoga™ have produced powerful results for hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. Focusing his energies toward fractured communities long plagued by ingrained patterns of poverty and violence, he’s taken empowerment methods into the most desperate regions of Kenya. In 2007, along with Paige Elenson, Baron helped found the non-profit Africa Yoga Project based in Nairobi, Kenya and dedicated to transforming the lives of impoverished youth through service and teaching the practices and techniques of Baptiste Yoga™. Over 4,000 students attend the Africa Yoga Project courses each week, free of charge, which are delivered by 60 Kenyan teachers who live and teach within the slums of Nairobi. The Africa Yoga Project teachers are trained directly by Baron. He’s authored four books which have been translated into more than twelve languages.
