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. It incorporates the Rule of Four breathing technique and the Kemetic principle of geometric progression. We flow from one pose into the next geometrically – meaning from a simple pose into increasingly complex poses. The flow of movements is based upon an understanding of anatomy, physiology, the bio-energetic body and the flow of internal energy.

The YogaSkills Method™(YSM) focuses on 12 Core Principals:
  1. History and Philosophy of Kemetic Yoga
  2. The Science of Yoga as a system of self-development and self-mastery
  3. The proper performance of Kemetic Yoga movements and postures
  4. The principles and techniques of the YogaSkills Method™ (YSM) as developed by Y.R. Hotep
  5. Kemetic Meditation and Breath Control
  6. Teaching strategies and techniques
  7. Teaching Special Populations: Children, Seniors, etc.
  8. Physical Anatomy
  9. Spiritual Anatomy
  10. Nutrition
  11. Stress Management
  12. Principles of Yoga Business


The practice of Yoga develops skills that are transferable and applicable to all other aspects of 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
