Afrikan Yoga is making its way back into the psyche of the planet, especially the Africans of the Diaspora and is now becoming recognized as a yogic practice globally. There are various questions being asked like ‘What is Afrikan Yoga?’, ‘Is there yoga from Africa’? and ‘What makes Afrikan Yoga African’? I find these interesting questions as they are mainly asked by those who have never experienced Afrikan Yoga. The questions arise from those who struggle with the idea and fact that a yogic practice and philosophy has been in Africa for thousands of years. The latest news is that the ancient Smai Yogic practices and ideas were and still are rooted in the Nile Valley and other parts of Africa.
