Frequently Asked Questions
What is Kamili Yoga™?
Created under Soul Liberation Wellness, Kamili Yoga™ is a modern and holistic Afrocentric system of Yoga. From the Swahili word for “complete” and the Sanskrit word for “union,” Kamili Yoga™ is born from the need for more systems of Yoga that specifically center the African Diaspora. This is done through simple yet significant methods like incorporating East African Swahili terms and West African Adinkra symbols, upholding community through African philosophies, learning about historical Pan-African ancestors, and honoring sacredness with alter work. Expansive space is also held to address social issues that impact Black lives and find healthy, practical ways to practice Self care in the face of global systemic and racial oppression.
This online education platform is for aspiring practitioners to study the tenets of Kamili Yoga™ and master how to make the system a part of their everyday life. Lessons include in-depth teachings on each pillar of union, thorough guidance on the Mazoezi Kamili, detailed instruction on accessible Yoga poses, exploration of African Diaspora history and culture, and more.
If I am not Black, can I still join the Kamili Yoga™ Learning Collective?
Yes. Kamili Yoga™ does not exclude anyone based on ethnic background. However, do recognize that this system specifically centers and serves Black descendants of the African Diaspora, and the material speaks directly to that audience. If you respect this and understand the need for more culturally diverse systems of Yoga, more Yoga systems that de-center Whiteness, and more Yoga systems that recognize the beautiful depths of Black and African being, then you are welcome to join!
Is Kamili Yoga™ LGBTQ-inclusive and affirming?
Yes! Throughout history, Black queer folx have been a cornerstone in social movements, and despite homophobia from their own people, continue to support and uplift their communities. Kamili Yoga™ honors the contributions of LGBTQIA+ Blacks and Africans to the struggles of liberation, from Civil Rights organizer Bayard Rustin to Marsha P. Johnson of the Stonewall riots to co-founders of #BlackLivesMatter, Alicia Garza and Patrisse Cullors.
Do you offer Yoga teacher certifications for Kamili Yoga™?
A Yoga teacher certification program is in development and will be offered in 2021. However, certificates for Continuing Education Units (CEUs) credentialed through Yoga Alliance, are offered for some lessons and courses upon successful completion. The credentialing accreditation is through Yoga Alliance.
