Of Course! Yoga, originally referred to as Smai or Smai Tawi in the ancient African civilization of Kemet (which originated in Africa and spread to Asia, the Americas, and the rest of the world over 6,000 years ago), is a word that points to many different practices, always boiling down to one idea: “unity.”
Smai Tawi or Kemetic Yoga is a vehicle you can use to align your body and energies with the cosmic geometry. It is a tool that helps you sink into yourself as well as practically and experientially discover what must change or be reduced to live at an optimal level.
Kemetic Yoga is commonly known as Ancient Egyptian yoga. It is the root of all styles of yoga known of in modern times: Kundalini yoga, Hatha Yoga, Iyengar Yoga, Yin Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Bikram Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Restorative Yoga, etc.-- and even other modalities like Reiki and Pranic healing.
Used properly, Kemetic Yoga activates all major muscle and joint groups within the body and stimulates the parasympathetic autonomic nervous system (to hush the stress fight or flight response and begin the natural process of digestion and healing within the body). The focus is on the breath as well as the flow of BA and KA (life force energies) for self-healing and healing others.
There are poses and postures within Kemetic Yoga that set it apart and activate different reflexology points and energy meridians within the body. We practice Kemetic Yoga through the YogaSkills method which is meditative, slow, restorative, uses a fluid flow of movement, geometric progression, and rule of four breathing.
Coincidentally, Kemetic Yoga is also a form of resistance strength training. We may also use a whole body vibration machine to heighten the healing effects for quicker physical progress. You can learn Kemetic Yoga online with Tenci of Ufulu Child herself on the Yoga Green Book platform (12-month membership included FREE).
