Soul Liberation Wellness is an initiative to serve Black folks and BlaQue (Black+Queer) folx, two highly marginalized communities, in the areas of inner and outer wellness. The vision of Eternity Philops, Soul Liberation Wellness delves deeper into the Self and explores the connection between mind, body, heart, and spirit through the lens of Black identity and culture.

Provides a shame-free and gentle safe(r) space – Affirms all Black bodies and identities – Is inclusive of LGB, trans, gender non-conforming, and non-binary queer folx of color – Offers Yoga teachings beyond the body – Explores various methods for holistic healing and sacred Self care – Empowers students on their journeys to inner growth and transformation
. . . then Soul Liberation Wellness is made for you!

As a conscious and free Black queer being, my journey into Yoga and holistic wellness is nothing short of kismet. What began as an experience of curiosity has evolved into a life path and passion for helping others to achieve heightened and healthy connections with Self.
Kamili Yoga™ is my modern and holistic Afrocentric system of Yoga. From the Swahili word for “complete” and the Sanskrit word for “union,” Kamili Yoga™ is born from the need for more systems of Yoga that specifically center the traditions and histories of the African Diaspora. Kamili Yoga™ is rooted in many Pan-African cultures, from the African ancestors spread across the continental Motherland to the Black descendants dispersed throughout the world.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our world in ways we would have never imagined. A major impact has been on Yoga teachers transitioning their classes from physical studios to virtual spaces. Soul Liberation offerings are now primarily online, with limited in-person classes taking place in local parks. To see upcoming events, check out the Soul Liberation Eventbrite page!
Soothing Sound Meditation
Sound is more than just what we hear. It is energy itself. I love to hold space for students to relax their body and soul with the gentle healing vibrations of calming acoustics. We begin with deep breathing exercises to bring the mind to stillness, and ease into a soothing, thought-clearing meditation to the heavenly tones of the Hapi steel drum and Himalayan singing bowls.
Sound meditation is available with private lessons and group classes. Recordings are also published on the Soul Liberation Wellness YouTube Channel.
My Patreon account supports the Soul Liberation Wellness YouTube Channel, which provides free beginner Yoga lessons and meditations. Patrons can make suggestions and requests for future lessons, and get early access to content. Support levels are affordable at just $5, $10, or $25 a month.
