About the Collective
This virtual platform is for students to engage in interactive and self-paced study of the core tenets of Kamili Yoga™ and Pan-African knowledge. Dedicated students of the Kamili Collective will work toward becoming certified as Kamili Yoga™ Community Leaders so that they can use their experience of the system to teach its practice and benefits to their local communities.
Membership to the Kamili Collective is not about being in a temporary "yoga teacher training" program where once you complete it you're on your own. The Kamili Collective is a lifelong community of like-minded and like-hearted Black yogis who continuously encourage, support, and hold space for each other on their holistic wellness journey.
Eternity's Teaching Philosophy
Many wellness instructors and Yoga spaces, both physically and virtually, present an air of false perfection and enforce constant "love and light" positivity. Many of their lessons are surface and shallow, minimizing Yoga to mere exercise and teaching only the trendy basics of wellness. This does a disservice to students who want more in their lessons.
As I teacher, I am different because I do more than instruct . . . I educate. I delve deeper and challenge my students to go beyond the superficial. I am different because I teach Yoga and wellness in a way that is socially conscious, trauma-informed, and honors the cultural fullness of the practices. I am different because I believe that we need to make space for being imperfect people in an imperfect society, that we need to acknowledge the shadows within us as well as the light, and that we need to learn how to be comfortable with discomfort.
But most importantly, I am different simply because I am me. I give my students my most genuine Self. I make space to be all of who I am so that I can hold space for all of who you are. That difference is how I can help you grow into who you want to be.

About the Training
The Kamili Yoga™ Community Leader training is an online intensive program that combines both self-paced study and interactive group guidance to teach inner mastery of Kamili Yoga™. Centered on and exclusively serving people of Black identity and indigenous African ancestry, the Afrocentric curriculum goes into detail on the structure and practice of the Kamili Yoga™ system. In addition, students will explore the historical and cultural foundations of Yoga, universal principles and various forms of African spirituality, techniques for meditation, breathwork, and poses, incorporating Yoga into Black liberation, and much more!
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!

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.
And just to be clear, Kamili Yoga™ is founded by a Black queer being!
But more important than Yoga poses is Yoga philosophy. Physical motion is just a small piece of Kamili Yoga™, and there is much more to learn on this journey of wellness and union. As a Kamili Yoga™ student, you will learn how to nurture not just the body, but also the heart, mind, and spirit.
For lifetime membership payment plans, once you make your selection, you are locked in to that plan until it is completed, so please choose wisely!
