The "Boomer/Senior" Yoga trend is quite popular, and is a favorite of Queen Mother's to teach.
"I found the experience to be very enlightening and rejuvenating. I walked away feeling evolved."
- Doshon Farad, multimedia journalist
"Your yoga classes gave me back my life and rejuvenated my Spirit in a spiritually positive way, while keeping me in harmony with others. Tuau (many thanks), Queen Mother Imakhu, for the blessing."
- Mut Bakh Auset En Hetep of Newark, NJ
"Thank you so much for what you bring! The girls and women truly enjoyed your teaching style. Relaxing, yet challenging and educational."

"Shenu" means "Protective, harmonious Circle (or oval)" in the Khametic (Ancient Egyptian) language.
The Shenu yoga system addresses people at all stages of life. Shenu Yoga encourages a gentle, yet challenging approach to yoga. Through her years of personal practice, Queen Mother Imakhu (a.k.a. Pastor Elaine Lloyd-Nazario) has come to understand what listening to the body truly means. The body changes as it ages. Also, there are beginners who are highly intimidated by the challenging poses yoga classes tend to offer. Yoga classes should be accommodating to disabled populations too. Lastly, Queen Mother has come to see from personal experience, and from the general observations of lifelong yoga practitioners, some of the trickier poses are no longer relevant, or can even be detrimental to the body. As a teaching yogini, Queen Mother has listened to her body, her peers, and her students.
Shenu Yoga offers the options of
(1) Gentle Traditional Yoga that starts from the chair, the moves to the mat.
(2) Gentle Chair Yoga for Boomer, Senior and Disabled populations, which uses the chair as support.

What Shenu Gentle Yoga/Khametic Yoga DOES NOT DO:
~ DOES NOT teach or explore tantra. Shenu Yoga's focus is on character building,
spirituality, and goal achievement. We are not interested in, nor preoccupied with,
the use and abuse of sexual energy. The pure Life Force energy that flows within and
throughout the all of existence should be used to bring our lives into harmony with,
and respect of, one another. While sex is a part of life, preoccupation with sex is not
in Ma'at (harmonious balance and order).
~ Does not guarantee the same results for everyone. We are all different. We all respond to yoga differently.
~ Does not discourage students from seeing a physician or mental health expert. This is not a substitute for your general or specialized health care. Shenu Yoga does provide a substantial supplement to and support for your overall wellness program.
~ Does not compete with other yoga programs. We focus on doing what we do with integrity, high quality, and sincerity.
~ Shenu Yoga does not set aims on teaching students acrobatics. Shenu Yoga encourages meaningful, achievable, yet challenging movement.
