Adjustments and Going Beyond Your Limits

The YogaSkills Method™ encompasses

  • Kemetic (ancient Egyptian) philosophy and spiritual science

  • Pre-Aryan (Non-Hindu) Indian Yogic concepts

  • Movements and postures that are uniquely Kemetic

The YogaSkills Method involves movements and postures that flow. This means that the body flows from one pose into the next. It incorporates the Kemetic ,or ancient Egyptian, principle of geometric progression. We flow geometrically, meaning from a simple pose into increasingly complex poses. The flow of the movements is based upon an understanding of anatomy, physiology, the bio-energetic body and the flow of internal energy.
The practice of Yoga develops skills that are transferable and applicable to all other aspects of your life. By learning to control your breathing in order to perform the movements and postures, you develop the following skills:

  • Self Control

  • Patience

  • Concentration

  • Intuition

  • Self Reliance

  • Prosperity

  • Faith

  • Insight

  • Stress Management

  • Wellness
