Originally from Cameroon, Central Africa, Jacky Yenga grew up in Paris and now lives in Vancouver, BC. Her foundation for life was rooted in togetherness and collaboration, respect for nature, the elders and the ancestors. She experienced the trauma of disconnection when she was sent to the West to “live a better life”, and she faced a crisis in her understanding of what success in life was.
Reconciling the essence of both the western and African worlds and keeping the best of each has been her journey, commitment and contribution ever since. Now she is an inspiring speaker and an enthusiastic ambassador for the wisdom of Africa, which she shares around the world in various forms such as songs, dances and music, bringing the experience of The Spirit of the Village to her audience.
She is committed to helping you access joy through movement, rhythm and connection, and break the habit of living disconnected.
