hethat emerged from one of the oldest known civilizations, ancient Egypt, originally called Kemet. Matching the evolution of yoga in India, Kemetic yoga is the practice of physical movements combined with controlled deep breathing and meditation. It is used to heal and regenerate the human body by using a series of postures that are similar to geometric shapes, which helps align the spinal column and correct the muscular system. Also, it helps in relieving stress and improving the blood circulation and oxygen supply in the human body. It was first discovered and developed by Dr.Asar Hapi and master Yirser Ra Hotep (Elvrid Lawrence) of chicago in the 1970s. It was developed by studying, translating and interpreting the commonly called hieroglyphic texts of Kemet, ancient Egypt, and the images of yogic postures that are clearly pictured on the walls of the Kemetic temples. It is, both, philosophy and a practice based upon the Kemetic system of self-development that fueled the creation of the Kemetic civilization that generated western science, philosophy and religion.
