Based on the mythology and hieroglyphics of ancient Kemet (now known as Egypt), Kemetic Yoga emphasizes controlled deep breathing and geometrically progressive postures to enhance Self-development and inner healing. Grounded in the YogaSkills School of Kemetic Yoga system, this workshop explores Kemetic principles, practices, and poses as a way to renew mind, body, and soul. Students will acquire a beginner’s foundation in Kemetic Yoga and, through forging a deeper understanding of Self, will be able to independently create their own personal Kemetic Yoga practice.
