The YogaSkills Method™ encompasses

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.
