HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- A Valley man is taking his love of yoga to Africa to participate in a project in Kenya.
Harrisonburg yoga instructor Taylor Evans believes it will help young people find peace in communities where that may be tough.
The Africa Yoga Project teaches young people how to better themselves through the practice of yoga.
The project hopes to create opportunities for youth to learn to become self-sustaining leaders in their communities.
"I got to know the program and really get to see the impact and the change, and just the hope that comes with being empowered with your own self. So I'm just thrilled to do anything that I can to help out," said Evans.
Evans said he is trying to raise $10,000 for the project.
