DENISE YEMAYA ADÉDOJA FAIRLEY
educator | spiritual doula | wellness guide | iyalosha
Born in Queens, NY to Jamaican parents.
Raised in the South - Greensboro, NC.
Rebirthed and bred in Washington, DC.
I am a lover of all things Black..our people. our history. our liberation.
As a former high school math teacher with almost 20 years of classroom experience, I found that what I enjoyed the most about teaching is being able to support and walk alongside others through their process of self-discovery and problem solving. I founded Akoma Wellness where I serve as a spiritual life coach, doula and guide to those who seek to explore the "missing" variables in their lives and are ready to undergo a process of rebirth.
I am a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 200) and have received certifications and training in Life Coaching, Reiki (Level 1&2), Tarot Advising, Meditation, Sound Healing, Trauma Awareness, Yoni Breathing and the AromaTouch Technique. In September 2019, I was initiated as a Priestess of Yemaya in the Lucumi (Orisha) tradition in Havana, Cuba and received the name, Yemaya Adédoja.
My intention is to create sacred spaces to support individuals with re-membering who they are and embodying the power that comes with being connected to the heart. My prayer is that we be whole. be love. be free.
