"I used to think that yoga was only for Indian men meditating wearing white diapers" laughs Yirser Ra Hotep. But Hotep soon realized that yoga was for everyone, "I would travel to a village in Ghana where no one has ever heard of the word yoga. I'd see little African kids getting into the exact same positions." The more he researched, the more he realized that there was more to yoga than what we thought.

The Yoga Skills Method on Kemetic Yoga is powerful way to learn the cultural history backed up with anatomy and psychology. I now fuse my Hindu-based foundation with Kemetic Yoga for deeper meaning within the soulful movement in yoga.
