Earthseeds: Space of the Living

Kemetic Yoga On The Toronto Waterfront

INFO

What the series is all about

These sessions are filmed along the central Toronto waterfront at the Westin Harbour Castle 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. The goal of the Earthseeds Kemetic Yoga Series is to help you carve out spaces of respite so that you may pause, clear out the noise that is causing a buildup of weariness, fatigue or annoyance in your body, and restore your mental calm.

The Kemetic Yoga series features 5 sessions meant to inspire mindfulness and reflection during a time of mental upheaval and uncertainty. Along with encouraging a state of calm and a way to connect to our bodies and the environment around us, this series will also include introspective journaling activities and giveaways for participants!

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.
