What is Kemetic Yoga?
Kemetic Yoga is found on the writing of the temple walls in Ancient Egypt. This writing commonly known as hieroglyphs, is referred to as “MDR NTR” (Me-du Ne-ter) which translates to the words of God. These instructions and postures are a fundamental aspect of ancient Egyptian spiritual science, which is identical across Africa, and serves as a way to connect with the spirits of our ancestors through meditation, prayer and ritual.
Kemetic Yoga places much emphasis on breath aligned with movement, your autonomic nervous system is activated which places your mind and body into a flow state. In this state your brain emits more alpha waves. Alpha waves as opposed to beta waves are associated with deep states of relaxation, concentration and mental balance.
What it means
In this first session we will focus on breath, the foundation of yoga and life. We will practice the 4 rules of breathing in Kemetic Yoga. Air is associated with cleansing power and is associated with the Spring season and its corresponding direction is East.
Air disperses and integrates spiritual understanding of love, compassion, and connection to everything you encounter.
This session was filmed along the central Toronto waterfront at the Westin Harbour Castle, Toronto as a way to showcase locations in the city that offer a connection to healing energy. The view of the water offers serenity and showcases a literal and figurative bridge that links neighbourhoods of people together.
