Peace and blessings to everyone. My name is Qawaq Aaliyah and I am honoured to be here in this position today where I can now teach and share with others the knowledge of Kemetic yoga, which far exceeds being just a physical practice. This is fundamentally a tool for self liberation, its a science, philosophy and understanding of life and all that is.
My passion is Holistic Health & Wellbeing and I have personally overcome Crohn's Disease (including two bowel removal surgeries and a temporary ileostomy bag for 5 months), PCOS, Endometriosis, Anxiety and Depression, using a holistic approach and lifestyle reconstruction. I am a Certified Regenerative Detoxification Specialist, Rising Holistic Health Coach, Massage Therapist and Health Enhancement Educator.
My dream is to develop a Holistic healing centre in Africa living off the land, growing fruit trees, veggies, herbs and living in nature.
I became certified as a Kemetic Yoga teacher last year in October but found out that Yirser Ra Hotep was coming almost a year prior and saved up to make sure I'd be there, I was NOT about to miss this!! I just knew this was the spark that was missing from my life and really wanted to be part of the first group of certified teachers in Australia.
Growing up in Australia as a biracial child, estranged from my Nigerian father and African roots, I have always craved to know more about my ancestry, its culture and traditions, prior to the monotheistic religious influence. I have always loved yoga and have practised for 10 years and to discover that the Yoruba tribe which is my descendancy, also have their own yoga and meditative practices known as Riro, was a pleasant discovery and it all made sense why I love the things I love.
I want to share Kemetic Yoga so that I too can pass on the spark that will reconnect people with their true essence and be part of the revolution that reminds the world to acknowledge Africa for everything it has bestowed upon this world.
