About the event
Sema Tawi African Yoga Soundbath by Master Ah Ra. Featuring Nathan Meola as a medicine storyteller and master of ceremonies.
Ancient Africans scribed texts in Medu NTR (hieroglyphics) more than 10 000 years of Sema Tawi philosophies are carved in the ancient temples, pyramids, palaces, books & papyrus documents of ancient northern and eastern Nile Valley of Africa.
Sema Tawi - African Yoga by Roots Yoga Life is an ancient African science, evolving human experience, a journey of free flowing body movements with intention. Encapsulated in a cosmic dance involving the principles of Neter/Nature.
The journey commences with an introduction to the system of Sema Tawi, its history and cosmology that is shared by Master Ah Ra. Moving onwards to breathwork and story-infused free flowing movements. A freedom of trance state emerges from the practice revealing a freedom of breath following onto geometrically aligned Sema Tawi yogic sequences.
Completion is the relaxation of Sahu pose and Hekau - the collective chant of Medu Neter language - akin to Mantra chanting, yet unique to African systems as vibrational tuning.
Enter the temple rich with philosophy and transmission. Sema Tawi is a deepening transmission of cosmology, yogic practice, infused with Hekau & Hesi (mantra & song).
This workshop is an immersive designed to set intentions and utilize the ancient systems of breath work and sacred movement.
