Hi, I’m Wambui
I'm a Kenyan-American based in Portugal, passionate about making wellness through trauma-informed Ashtanga yoga, massage and meditation accessible. I work to create wellness spaces rooted in equity so that more people of the global majority can live well and thrive. I've had the privilege of studying Ashtanga Yoga in Mysore, India from 2009-1016 with R.Sharath Jois.
I'm deeply inspired by spiritual teachers and communities that seek ways to apply the insights from our various practices and teachings to situations of social, racial, political, environmental and economic suffering and injustice.
I would like to see wellness spaces talk more about social justice + collective change and social justice spaces learn to breathe deeply and practice sustainable self-care in the midst of dismantling systemic oppression. This is my definition of community care.
It's wonderful to have you here.
