Yoga + Seva: Building a Generation of Educated and Empowered Women Across the Globe with Jordan Ashley of Souljourn Yoga

April 9, 2019

Happy #SeekTheJoy Tuesday! On the podcast this week is Jordan Ashley, Founder and Executive Director of Souljourn Yoga, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization inspired by seva, the Sanskrit word and yogic principle of selfless service.

Jordan is dedicated to raising global compassion and peace, and through Souljourn Yoga she hosts yoga retreats around the globe, including places like Nicaragua, Rwanda, and Cambodia just to name a few. By hosting these retreats, she donates a generous percentage of sales to local and international charities to help fund girls' education and women's empowerment in developing countries. 

In this week’s episode we chat all about . . . 

  • The inspiration behind Souljourn Yoga, its mission and impact, creating an experience of togetherness through the practice of yoga
  • Jordan shares why she’s dedicated to raising awareness for girl’s education and empowering women in developing countries.
  • Plus, we chat about redefining the practice of yoga and the role yoga has played in Jordan’s healing and spiritual journey.
  • Seva - what it is, and how we can incorporate it into our lives.
  • Joy in her life, and so much more!
