Commonly Asked Questions

 

What is Egyptian Yoga?

I believe Yirser Ra Hotep answers this question best by stating,  Kemetic Yoga emerges from one of the oldest known civilizations in ancient Egypt, also known as Kemet, in Northeastern Africa. Not many people are aware of the fact that the Ancient Egyptians practiced Yogic Exercises and Meditation thousands of years ago.  

The modern version of this ancient system was developed from primary research conducted in the 1970′s by Dr. Asar Hapi and Master Yirser Ra Hotep (Elvrid Lawrence), who studied, translated, and interpreted the hieroglyphic texts and images of Yoga postures that appeared on  Kemetic temple walls.

This healing, regenerative system of Yoga is characterized by a series of geometrically progressive postures that encourage proper spinal column alignment, corrects defects in the skeletal muscular system to relieve stress, and increase circulation to the body’s vital systems, allowing internal life force energy to flow more efficiently and abundantly throughout the body.
