Paige was born into a Jewish entrepreneurial family in New York. While still in high school, Paige convinced her parents to let her study in Israel for a year, where she began to develop a deep relationship with her spirituality. Paige went on the study Jewish history at the American University and became interested in yoga after meeting teacher Baron Baptiste. In 2006, while on a safari vacation in Kenya, Paige met a troupe of young acrobats who invited her to teach yoga in Kibera, a Nairobi slum area. Her visit to Kibera was marred by post-election violence that erupted in Kenya at that time. While shocking and scary, the conflict showed Paige how yoga provides tools for psycho-social health. The initial two week trip became several trips during which Paige carried out repeated trainings. She caught the attention of staff members at the U.N., who invited her to teach at their offices. The disparity was glaring. On the one hand, she was working with young people in Kibera who barely had enough to eat, while on the other hand, she was earning an income conducting yoga at the U.N. Paige realized that yoga could serve as a catalyst for the young people of Kibera. In 2009, she and Baron Baptiste founded the Africa Yoga Project, which equips thousands of unemployed youth in Africa with the tools to develop as professionals and leaders, and to create economic opportunities by tapping into the global wellness industry. By engaging youth in the development of the yoga market, Paige has created a model that incorporates self-discovery to unlock participants’ innate capacity to transform themselves.
