About Chocolako

Meet Chocolako, a remarkable Nigerian-American yoga teacher known for embodying principles of oneness and legendary love. With her playful and strong approach, she guides students to delve into their inner energy, unlocking a powerful force to conquer fears and doubts.

Chocolako has been practicing yoga since 2005 and sharing her meditative movement expertise since 2010 worldwide through classes, workshops, trainings, and retreats.

With over 1000 hours of yoga teacher training and a wide array of perspectives, she integrates ancient, ancestral, and modern techniques into her teachings.

Her profound understanding of the impermanence of each moment was crystallized by the untimely passing of her best friend’s mother, deepening her reverence for the sacredness of every breath. As such this led Chocolako to emphasis the importance of breath and heartbeats, which she connects with during yoga and mediation.

At the core of Chocolako’s philosophy lies “Innergy” – a term she coined to represent the delicate power between formless and form beneath the lining of our skin. By embracing Innergy, seekers can cultivate ease, stability, and coherence in their lives.

When not teaching, Chocolako explores the world, absorbing fresh insights and inspiration to share with her students. Whether immersing herself in the teachings of spiritual leaders in Peru, meditating alongside elders in Sri Lanka, or strolling through nature’s embrace, she remains open to new ways of understanding the universe, all the while aiding others on their transformative journeys.

Currently, Chocolako serves as a resident yoga teacher and trainer at The Yoga Barn in Ubud, Bali. Here, she leads weekly classes, workshops, and unique offerings like Cacao Circles with African Dance, and the transformative Womb Wisdom Wellbeing 200-hour Yoga Innergy Teacher Training program.

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”

“I was introduced to Chocolako during the height of the pandemic through her weekly meditation on Instagram Live. Her meditations were a Godsend and helped me find my breath at a time when anxiety and depression were at an all-time high. She not only provided me with 30-60 minutes of calm but she also provided me with tools that I could incorporate into my everyday meditation practice.

After attending her virtual meditations for a few months, I knew I had to attend her Yoga retreat in Tulum, Mexico. The Yoga Innergy retreat was life-changing for me. I learned so much about myself through the workshops and activities. It was during the retreat that I received the direction and the courage to make a bold life decision.

Chocolako continues to share her bright light with everyone she meets. Months after the retreat, she continues to check on me and provide guidance, support and direction as I embark on my own yoga teacher journey. I’m grateful that our paths crossed and would highly recommend her classes, retreats, and yoga teacher training.”

“Classes with Choc are always an amazing experience. She connects with all the class participants, and you will always feel like part of a family in her class. She is very personable and no one feels left out. She’s one of the best instructors I’ve had!!”
