About This Event
Do you need a moment to refresh and connect with your deeper, spiritual self? Have you felt drawn to a higher calling or deeper understanding of the world? During this retreat, we are exploring the high wisdom of ancient Egypt while engaging our physical bodies in the practice of smai tawi - commonly known as Kemetic Yoga. Throughout this retreat we will provide you with useful tools and practices of this ancient yogic system, learn Kemetic (ancient Egyptian) breathing techniques and Kemetic philosophy while exploring the beautiful land of Egypt. We will stay at the most gorgeous locations in both Dahshur (just outside of Cairo) and Luxor, tucked away under the palm trees for the ultimate relaxation.
This is an experience to dive into our deepest selves, uncover hidden truths within us and unlock the unconditional love of self that we deserve. As the ancient practice of Smai Tawi intends - this is a journey towards self-mastery and discovery.
We are also happy to announce that we will be joined by Wellness Coach, Vegan & Living Foods Chef, Kemetic Reiki Master and International Kemetic Yoga Instructor, Kamean Daniels popularly known as @KemeticYogi. He will guide us through a Living Foods Workshop where you will have the chance to learn new recipes, ways of preparing vegan foods and learn about why a vegan lifestyle is so beneficial (and popular) among wellness, health and nutrition enthusiasts.
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.
This is a decision to invest in YOU.
The journey awaits.

Venue HighlightsABOUT OUR GUEST HOST
The journey to becoming “Kemetic Yogi” began eight years ago (2011) in Atlanta, Georgia where Bro. Kamean settled after moving from his hometown in New York City. An avid yoga practitioner and student of Kemetic Sciences, he decided to pursue his 200hr Kemetic Yoga Teacher certification with master teacher Yirser Ra Hotep of the YogaSkills School of Kemetic Yoga in New York City during his summer vacation. That same year while mastering his newly learned yoga skills; he also received his level one and two Ra Sekhi (Kemetic Reiki) attunements from Sis. Sat Ra SisaDaye of the Yoni Steam Institute followed by his master attunement from Rekhit Kajara Nia Yaa Nebthet of the Ra Sekhi Arts Temple. After his second year of teaching and being an active member of the Atlanta cultural community, he resigned from his position as an elementary school teacher at the public charter school and went to Jamaica in the summer of 2012 to study further with master teacher Yirser Ra Hotep of the YogaSkills School of Kemetic Yoga. Following his training with Yirser Ra Hotep in Jamaica, he returned back to Atlanta where he transformed his home into the Healing Earth Temple. He spent two years in Seva at the Healing Earth Temple in Atlanta, Georgia, where he served his community in every capacity. He hosted Yoga teacher trainings, women's healing retreats, community based wellness events and he taught free Yoga classes every week on Sundays. It was like a non-stop train of amazing experiences & lessons that determined the course of his healing journey. He decided to leave Atlanta in 2013 and took his healing practice on the road as “The Mobile Mystic.” As the Mobile Mystic, Kemetic Yogi traveled around the United States organizing wellness events, doing healthy food prep demonstrations, hosting yoga workshops, volunteering with youth organizations and more! Bro. Kamean (Kemetic Yogi) transformed his mobile movement into Kemetic Yogi LLC and organized his first “Roots & Culture Yoga Retreat” in Ghana in 2014. In the past six years, he has organized ten Roots and Culture Yoga Retreats in Ghana, which has since welcomed more the two hundred Africans in the Diaspora back home to the African continent! In addition, as part of his ‘Back To Nature” movement, he has hosted five naturist based Yoga retreats throughout the Caribbean and South America (Puerto Rico, Costa Rica & Brazil). His future projects include the Naga Yoga School Of Kemetic Science and The Neo Afrikan Arts Collective, both based in Ghana, West Africa.
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.
