Greetings Glocal Citizens!
We’re getting mindful this week on the podcast. I'm with the Co-Director of Synergy Yoga in Nairobi, Salim Rollins. Salim is a White Plains, New York native that calls Nairobi, Kenya home.
Salim has maintained a dedicated hatha/vinyasa yoga practice since 2000 and was certified as an instructor through Yoga Alliance in 2007. He has studied under the mentorship of several master teachers including Jhon Tamayo (New York), Ullas Kumar (Kerala, India), and Sudhesh Chandra (Mysore, India). Through his company Soul Flow, Salim has organized numerous wellness retreats, workshops and festivals throughout Kenya. Additionally, Salim has conducted extensive research on yoga philosophy with scholars, yogis and saddhus throughout India. Salim is also a Contra-Mestre of the Afro-Brazilian martial art, Capoeira Angola. He runs a capoeira program for marginalized youth in Kibera slum, Kenya and Luanda, Angola.
