Let Kemetic Yogi Customize A Retreat For & Your Family/Friends Today!
It has been six years since I resigned from my position as an elementary school teacher in Atlanta, Georgia to begin my Yogic journey and form the Naga Yoga Legacy. After returning from my training with Master Teacher Yirser Ra Hotep the summer of 2012, I made the decision to transform my home into the Healing Earth Temple and my life was never the same again! I spent two years in Seva at my Healing Earth Temple in Atlanta, Georgia, where I served my community in every capacity. I hosted Yoga teacher trainings, women's healing retreats, community wellness events and gave free Yoga workshops every week. It was like a non-stop train of amazing experiences & lessons that has shaped my life in so many positive and uplifting ways! During those two years, the experiences with the souls that I encountered would show me so much about who I am and where I need to grow. It was an amazing time that I wouldn't change for the world! Since then, I have had an amazing time expanding my network across four continents and over ten countries around the world! It has opened my eyes to the amazing possibilities that life has to offer when I fully step into my life purpose without fear!
I trust that you all will find THE KEMETIC YOGI ZONE to be a place that will assist you in finding your path to wellness. It is also a place where you can begin, continue and also advance your wellness journey. It is my belief that our own life is our most important wellness journey. For that reason, I have committed this space to providing exciting, interactive and meaningful wellness experiences that you all can incorporate in your own journey of transformation. It is my desire to share with you all that has been shared with me, divine love and guidance. Along with my wonderful team of beautiful souls, I have created a plethora of wellness services & activities, retreat & workshops, in addition to a socially responsible Naga Shop for you to heal, restore and manifest your true divinity. Enjoy your stay in the Kemetic Yogi Zone. Namashe
"The Back To Nature Movement is about taking this ancient healing technology that we call Yoga and practicing it in the highest frequency element available: NATURE. We use the frequencies of the sun to heal and illuminate our energy bodies. The bare earth beneath our feet connects us to the core energy of the earth, grounding us in our purpose and true essence. There is no higher spiritual practice than coming to nature as you were delivered from your mother’s womb. We are connecting back to the source which is the Great Mother of us ALL and we are doing it as a community, a village, a tribe."
The Roots, Culture & Spirituality Movement is geared towards connecting Diasporan Africans back to Africa spiritually, culturally and economically, however it is not just limited to Diasporan Africans. The Roots & Culture Yoga Retreats are open to all who desire personal healing, while also contributing to rebuilding Africa by providing jobs & creating valuable connections. Worldwide, there are nearly 170 million Africans in the Diaspora. Of that number, some 40 million reside in North America and almost 4 million in Europe. Diasporans can help open markets for new tourist destinations throughout Africa.

The Roots & Culture Yoga Retreat is for socially conscious travelers looking for a culturally satisfying 10 day experience that focuses on holistic wellness, gaining a deeper knowledge of local African culture and being of service to the local community. The retreat involve 2-3 days of volunteering in the communities to which we travel. The retreat provides jobs for over 20 local people, in addition to over 10 businesses ranging from transportation, cultural artists, hospitality and service workers from Accra, Cape Coast, all the way to Cape Three Points on the southern most tip of Ghana.
Participants can expect to have a true African Yoga experience infused with some of the richest aspects of Ghanaian culture ranging from Cultural Festivals, Traditional dance, African drumming, Batik art (a traditional African art form that dates back centuries), as well as having access to natural hair care, traditional clothing made by local tailors and so much more!
The retreat will begin in the capitol city, Accra. By day two participants will arrive in Cape Coast, where they will spend three days enjoying the Fetu-Afahye Festival, meeting chiefs, mingling with the locals and soaking up Cape Coast culture. As with every other festival in Ghana, there is a great history behind the celebration of the Fetu-Afahye Festival. According to tradition, a plague once ravaged the Oguaa community – Cape Coast was founded as a fishing community by a man, Oguaa who gave his name to the place. Such was the devastating effect of the plague that the people called on their gods before the plague stopped and the land was cleansed. The word fetu is a contraction of ‘efin tu’ in the local dialect which means clearing the dirt. Oguaa Fetu Afahye festival is therefore a commemoration of that purification which saved the land from the plague and a show of gratitude to the 77 gods of the Oguaa Traditional Area.
Also, forever haunted by the ghosts of the past, the Cape Coast is one of the most culturally significant spots in Africa. This former European colonial capital, named Cabo Corso by the Portuguese, was once the largest slave-trading centre in West Africa. Coveted by its European colonizers for its abundance of gold by, Cape Coast is also known for being the last stop for Africans who were taken into slavery by European colonizers to the Americas. For this reason, this experience is much more than a Yoga Retreat. It is an opportunity to bring a spirit of healing and reconciliation to the place where Africans were forced to leave their homeland for a new and unknown world. By day five participants will be headed to Cape Three Points, the southern most tip of the country. The village of Cape Three Points is the southernmost community in Ghana, and its beach is one of the most beautiful along Ghana’s West Coast. Surrounded by Ghana’s only coastal rainforest reserve and many rolling hills, the village also has a few secondary attractions, such as relaxation, beach and sea activities, hiking, and exploration of its cultural present and past. I welcome you all to join me for this life changing experience in Cape Three Points & Cape Coast Ghana.
Most importantly, the Roots & Culture Retreat was created with the intention to make this transformational international travel experience affordable and accessible for individuals & families. For that reason, all children that are 12 years old and under (accompanied by a paying adult) will attend for free!!!
PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS A TWO CHILD LIMIT PER EACH PAYING ADULT.

Have you felt drawn to a higher calling, deeper understanding of the world around us and are curious about ancient mysteries or sacred African traditions? Well that is exactly what you are going to meet on the Heru Winter Solstice Retreat! I am so honored to have been invited to join the Heru Winter Solstice Retreat as a guest host by my Bro. Tony Khepera Heru & Sistar Sarah Wesley of the Return To Kemet Tribe. Return to Kemet is a tribe for those on their healing journey ready to reawaken and step into their divinity. Through wellness, yoga, spiritual experiential journeys focused on African spirituality and ancient wisdom, it is their goal to provide tools and knowledge for the purpose of awakening. By unlocking the potential within our mental, emotional and spiritual lives, we fully show up for ourselves and confidently stand in our power - to renew, remember and reawaken who we are. During the Heru Winter Solstice Retreat, we will be exploring the sacred land of Kemet while unlocking perceived barriers, breaking through the limitations we place on ourselves and discovering more about our true nature.
Winter Solstice is a time of renewal and rebirth and on the 21st of December, Karnak Temple in Luxor aligns with the sun and illuminates the temple - one of the most important events of the Egyptian calendar. This journey is organized around the earth, moon and the cosmos for an opportunity to surrender, reconnect and release in the ancient African land of Kemet including:
The journey awaits.
DASHOUR, EGYPT (Cairo)
The first half of your retreat will take place at Ardi Sanctuary. Tucked within an expanse of palm tree groves and fields in Dashur lies a secluded and quiet haven aptly named Ardi. An environmentally friendly venture, each feature of Ardi is chosen to be sustainable in terms of the architecture, running costs, and the food prepared on premises. Not a single palm tree was removed to accommodate building the structure, all the plants are chosen based on their minimal need of water, including the lack of grass, and all the food is prepared on-site using traditional methods, made with organic and seasonal produce.
Tucked away between the banana fields and sugar cane, Embrace hotel is a beautiful new retreat space with towering views of Luxor. Embrace is located on the tranquil and calming side of the Nile - the West Bank. The statues of Memnon are just a short walk away. The name is indicative of the feeling the hotel promotes of a warm and welcoming embrace leaving you rested and revived.
