The Return of the Ankh
A symbol glyph, word and sound/tone was carried by the ancient Tamarean – Kemite and African masters of the Nile Valley and used as a talisman for protection and life today. The Ankh has phonetic value, meaning Everlasting Life or Key to Eternal Life. It is a symbol of all life, the universe, all life meaning both human and divine. The Ancient African Egyptians – Tamareans knew the human body to be connected with generation and with the maintenance of life.

On a Sunday morning I sat in front of my Luganda teacher, my brain swelling and throbbing, my tongue loosening and stretching and my intone-ation of the vernacular expanding as I began the task of grasping the language of the Buganda people of Uganda. During a 2hr session of mind expansion the question of why the K in Afrika began resounding. I have noticed a resistance to the use of the K from a few corners even Afrikan people themselves.
I even asked my language teacher is there a use of the C in Luganda and he replied very few words no more than 10. The answer had confirmed my own research with the minimum use of the C compared to K in Afrikan languages.
Afrikan Yoga is assisting 15 young people in Uganda who cannot afford teacher training and who can make a difference in their communities through learning Afrikan Yoga and becoming teachers. The training is being provided for free and we are fundraising to cover the costs of hiring studios to teach in, administration, course supplies, certificates, refreshments, travel and accommodation. We are passionate about training Africans who live on the continent to teach Afrikan Yoga and we know that this will empower them to have healthier lifestyles and steady livelihoods while effecting positive changes in their communities.
