Zawadi Nyong’o the elder sister to Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o has set the internet ablaze with a series of stunning Yoga snaps.

Zawadi, a vocal gender activist, author, and proud Yogi is on a deep self-care journey that includes practising Yoga. She says 2018 is her year of fulfillment.

“2017 was my year of FREEDOM. 2018 is my year of FULFILLMENT – #365DayzOfFULFILLMENT. I have no idea what that will look like for me, but I’m excited about the possibilities,” wrote Zawadi on Instagram.

The daughter of Kisumu County Governor, Anyang Nyong’o, went on to reveal that January has already been “a really emotionally intense month.”

“16 days into January, I can definitely say that this has been a really emotionally intense month. But despite the challenges, every day I try to take a pause, meditate on, and appreciate the fulfilling moments and experiences I am being blessed with.”

According to Zawadi, one of her New Year commitments was to reconnect with her Yoga practice, and decided to do the “TRUE 30 Day Yoga Journey.”

“I renewed my commitment to myself this morning, got on my mat, and within minutes of practicing, I could feel the impact. Every single time I show up for myself in my Self-Care journey, it has a positive impact on other parts of my life. My lesson for today: it’s not about achieving perfection. It’s about being present to the magic in every step of the journey. There is perfection in imperfection,” she wrote.

For the Yoga challenge, the black beauty stripped down to her birthday suit, saying: “The more I accept, embrace, and validate myself, the less I need others to. Yes, that’s easier said than done, especially in this current world we live in where we are constantly comparing ourselves with others. It takes work, commitment, patience, and lots of compassion. “

(2/3) #30DayzOfCOMPLETION – At the beginning of this year, I made a commitment to myself to reconnect with my yoga practice, and decided to do the “TRUE 30 Day Yoga Journey” with @adrienelouise. It’s day 16 and I’ve only gotten to day 5 of the program because life. Sigh. But instead of beating myself up for slacking, I renewed my commitment to myself this morning, got on my mat, and within minutes of practicing, I could feel the impact. Every single time I show up for myself in my Self-Care journey, it has a positive impact on other parts of my life. My lesson for today: it’s not about achieving perfection. It’s about being present to the magic in every step of the journey. There is perfection in imperfection. 🙏🏾 ______________________________ TRANSFORMATION: “You are undergoing an intense transformation at this time. The old is destroyed as new and dynamic ways of being are struggling to take form. Trust and be patient.” @ZeroByZawadi card reading from @susanwoldman’s deck of contemplation cards. . . . . . . #365DayzOfFULFILLMENT #ZeroByZawadi #2018VesselOfPower #SelfCare #ElevateYourShape #YogaChallenge
