35 going on 1

Looking back at the last 34 years, in so many ways I am just starting to understand some of this. I know I understand very little. There’s still so much to learn, so much wonder to explore. And as I blow out my metaphorical 35 candles today, I wonder to myself, how did I get so lucky?

I’ve long since given up on the fantasy of yearly significant resolutions, now I just try for small steps along then way. I do however vow to strengthen my resolve to stay fluid – too often I am too rigid, my secret ingredient in all my recipes for disaster 🤫.

My family, friends & more family I acquired along the way, I am truly grateful for your presence in my life. 2020 was a rollercoaster, I wish you all a merry holiday season and a serene 2021. Hope to see you on the mat for a little mindfulness practice. Everyday I’m grateful to be alive again. Yes, Again!

#Love for Humanity & Social Justice

MENTAL HEALTH ADVOCATE & YOGA INSTRUCTOR I'm Ney, from Tanzania, currently living and teaching Yoga in the DMV - Washington D.C. Metropolitan Area. I'm also the Co-founder & Chief Operations Officer of a nonprofit in Tanzania called Tap Elderly Women’s Wisdom for Youth - TEWWY. I started practicing Yoga to manage my debilitating anxiety; and it has since transcended to fuel my passion for Social Justice. TEWWY, a mental health stakeholder in TZ, facilitates psychosocial interventions by bridging the intergenerational gap through training elderly retired women in Interpersonal Counseling. The grandmotherly Wisdom&Wellness Counselors (WWCs) provide mental health services, support and resources to their underserved communities. The WWCs facilitate Wisdom&Wellness Circles, safe-spaces for people to share & care beyond what meets the eye as they build community. I teach Yoga as a radical tool in creating just and sustainable communities through the promotion of mental health & wellness. As we integrate the practice of Yoga in TEWWYs Mental Health Intervention Programs, we are building communities that are well equipped to adapt to change and cope with adversity. If you would like to be a part of our Wisdom&Wellness Community, let’s connect below.
