Soul Yoga Fest  is the annual  Yoga festival which was created by Master Kemetic Yoga Instructor Yirser Ra Hotep-Lawrence to introduce Yoga, especially Kemetic Yoga from the cultural perspective of Africa, to communities that otherwise would not know of Yoga, not have access to it, nor know of its African and Kemetic (ancient Egyptian) roots. Soul Yoga Fests are held in Chicago, Atlanta, Paris, South Africa and Jamaica.

The 2017 Soul Yoga Fest Chicago will be held at Fuller Park and sponsored by YogaSkills School of Kemetic Yoga in partnership with the Chicago Park District at Fuller Park included an Awards Dinner on Friday, August 18 & all-day yoga classes on Saturday August 19, 2017.
