Redefining African Wellness in the Face of a Pandemic
1 – THE FOUNDATION
There aren’t enough safe spaces for African bodies to heal so we are creating them for ourselves and each other. It’s true, we live in a world that boxes everything, according to skin color, religion, region, social class and many conforming structures we use to separate our Oneness.
When it comes to wellness, the conversation is not about who needs it the most but who can have access to it. On wellness tools and wellness spaces, it is not about exclusivity or belonging, but about inclusivity and representation. The Pandemic also teaches us that it is not about who you are or where you currently live. We are all experiencing this life changing reality together.
Olerato Yoga and Wellness is a Wellness Movement Redefining African Wellness in the face of the pandemic. Through wellness tools like Yoga, Meditation, Wellness Coaching and Mental Health Education, Our work aims to Heal African bodies, Support African Wellness and to inspire a new way of thinking when it comes to Mental Health and Holistic Wellness.

My name is Lerato Malatjie and I am the Founder of Olerato Yoga And Wellness. A Wellness Movement Redefining African Wellness in the face of the pandemic.
I am a certified Hatha Yoga Teacher, Wellness Life Coach, Spiritual Seeker, Professional Model and Wellness Entrepreneur. Learn more about me
My journey on the mat began during one of the most difficult times in my young adult life. I began my practice of yoga and meditation as a way to cope with personal trauma and depression.
Through mindfulness, commitment to self-love and personal reflection, I was able to learn the tools to transcend emotional trauma, release past hurt and fears, and to discover my personal power.
As the Founder of Olerato Yoga and Wellness, I advocate passionately for Mental Health, Self-Love and Wellness Education in African communities. The Key to African Excellence is African Wellness. I believe this can be achieved through representation, accessibility, and inclusivity in wellness spaces.
