While embracing New York City’s fast-paced yoga culture, Jordan Ashley (MA Human Rights and PhD candidate) recognised a need for a more service-based practice; a need for experiences which give perspective to the self through selflessness. Drawing on her experience travelling and teaching yoga, she created Souljourn Yoga Foundation, a US 501(c)3 non-profit that creates transformational yoga retreats and teacher training programs to raise awareness and funds for young women’s education around the world. Jordan’s work has been featured by Forbes, the LA Times, Marie Claire UK, and more.
