Eritrea's president and Ethiopia's Prime Minister embrace after years of war between the two countries, a sign that wounds are healing. Citizens of both nations will be able to travel freely through borders, as well as the transport of cargo and goods. Coptic Yogi celebrates this union.

A website that answers how yoga could reach people of all economic status, ethnicity and age is @ www.africayogaproject.org, based in Kenya. It is an eye opening experience to visit their site because they've discovered a way to make yoga an employable means to create 
wealth through health, carving a space in health industries. From their website they state, " More than 200 young people, trained as teachers, are earning a living wage by teaching yoga to people who otherwise would not have the opportunity. " This is the template that should be copied in countries around the world!
Our Yogi of the month for the month of July: The Yogi Extraordinaire: Katie Young! She says, "Yoga, it's been such a blessing!" Congratulations Katie!

Yoga in Ancient Egypt
Africa has always kept a special place in my heart. Writing "Yoga in Ancient Egypt," was a labor of love. You can find my work on Kindle and Amazon. Here's a short promo summarizing what to expect when reading  my research comparing Egyptian and Indian artifacts, writings and mythology. Selecting the 18th Dynasty, as my focus, I compare the Upanishads with the Book of the Coming Forth by Day. Enjoy!

Our Mission Statement:

Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy- meditate on such things.
