Training Program Outline
The full Kamili Yoga™ Community Leader program consists of 12 modules and will take a minimum of one year to complete. A module is released every 30 days (approximately once a month) and must be done in specific order. Each module includes multiple units of in-depth lectures, accountability and growth assignments, and graded review quizzes. Toward the end of training, students will have practicum work that prepares them for teaching Kamili Yoga™ in their communities by putting their studies and knowledge into action!
Students in the Kamili Yoga™ Community Leader certification program will be required to attend at least two live Kamili Collective offerings each month. If the regularly scheduled offerings do not align with a student's availability or time zone, additional offerings will be set up to accommodate.

The Kamili Affirmation
My body bears strength, solid and firm
I am earth
My heart burns pure, a passionate flame
I am fire
My mind flows freely, calm and clear
I am water
My spirit breathes gently, a sacred breath
I am air
My being is empty of ego, yet encompasses all
I am space
My soul is a reflection of all existence
I am life
And I am complete

Frequently Asked Questions
The Kamili Collective is a safe(r) space that exclusively serves those of Black identity and of Pan-African cultural communities. It is a space to honor the specific experiences that Black people around the world have in societies riddled with anti-Blackness and oppressive systems of institutionalized racism. It is a space for both learning AND healing, and that healing would be undermined by the presence of non-Black folks.
If you are offended by this being a Black-centered healing space, you are encouraged to investigate the true source of that angst and work on putting that energy toward creating a world where spaces such as these are no longer necessary.
