BlacktopiaWhy inspired you to start a business like Kemetic Fitness and Wellness, and how long have you been in business?
Basu Lauren: I was going through a difficult time in my life and was looking for an outlet for better. I came across yoga and it helped me so much that I decided to pursue being teacher. I have always loved to help others and wanted to be a teacher anyway.  I became certified to teach yoga and then everything else just came.  This was 2016.


Blacktopia:  What were some of the obstacles and challenges you faced starting 
this type of business? 
Basu Lauren:   Some of the challenges I faced were lack of confidence, doubt, fear. Getting people to see the value in their well-being. 

Blacktopia You also offer vibrational sound therapy as a service.  How does it work for the client?  What types of people would you recommend this type of 
treatment to?
Basu Lauren:   My favorite service to offer!  I place copper vibrational sound bowls on various parts of the body to activate the parasympathetic nervous system (relaxation response).  This treatment is for everybody!  Many clients report that the receive pain and stress relief. 

BlacktopiaYou also provide detox therapy, how do you do it?  Is there a drink that 
you provide for your clients?  What exactly is the process?
Basu Lauren:   No drinks are provided as of yet, BUT the detox is a 21-day plan that I create based on client's needs. includes intake, daily recipes, on going support, herbal remedy suggestions, movement recommendations, spiritual/metaphysical recommendations.  

Blacktopia:  What products do you provide and how can they get them? 
Basu Lauren:  I offer herbal pads, smudge sticks, high-vibrational adornments such as waist-beads, copper jewelry, foot-beads, necklaces! As of now, they can be ordered by contacting 912.349.9755.  they will soon be available for purchase on website

Blacktopia What are some of your best selling products?
Basu Lauren:   The waist beads!! Many of my customers have such great reviews of how much they love them and can feel the love/vibes.  they are more than a fashion statement, they are a purpose statement. 

Blacktopia:  What services do you provide and offer for those seeking your services but are not in your area?  How do you provide those services for them?
I can offer yoga, vibrational sound therapy, reiki through distance services.  This can be provided through a video platform. 

Blacktopia:  What is the black community's relationship with health from your opinion?
Basu Lauren:  I feel the community is slowly coming around to wanting to change their health.  We have to work on our priorities. 

Blacktopia: If you could change anything in the world with a snap of a finger, 
what would it be? 
 Basu Lauren:  That we will come together as a collective as other ethnic groups do. 

Blacktopia:  Outside of Kemetic Fitness and Wellness, what are some of the things you enjoy doing in your spare time?
