Origin of Sola Yoga

After the kidnapping and assassination of her colleagues Amandine Roche, writer and UN Peace Keeper was evacuated from Afghanistan. She recovered and found her inner peace in India where she took up yoga and meditation, living in close quarters with spiritual masters who teach the essence of non-violence. While she focused on her own self healing, she realized that the practice of non violence was not only the best way for her to achieve a happy and harmonious life, but it was also the only way for Afghanistan and the whole world. She returned to Kabul to create the Amanuddin Foundation in order to promote the culture of peace and non violence, and to develop in Afghanistan yoga and meditation, which are the tools of non-violence.

In 2011, at a Non-Violence Summit held in US, she met Cameron Alborzian, a spiritual healer and yoga and meditation teacher from Persian origin. Together, they created Sola-Yoga (Peace-Union) to bring well-being programes such as yoga and meditation in Afghanistan.
