KEMETIC YOGA STUDIO & WELLNESS CENTER
Welcome to YogaSkills Atlanta. YogaSkills is a method of yoga practice created by Yirser Ra Hotep (Elvrid Lawrence) that emphasizes creating healthful and healing conditions in our body, mind and bio-electric energy systems as opposed to extreme gymnastic and contortionist postures that often cause injury, and result in useless competitive mindsets that plague the commercial Yoga industry today.
The YogaSkills Method is based on Kemetic Yoga™, the modern version of an ancient system originating from Kemet - the original name of the land now called Egypt. Kemetic Yoga was developed from primary research conducted by Dr. Asar Hapi and Yirser Ra Hotep (Elvrid Lawrence) of Chicago during the 1970s.
The YogaSkills Method is a healing and regenerative yoga system that is characterized by a series of geometrically progressive postures that creates alignment of the spinal column and corrects defects in the skeletal-muscular system in order to relieve stress, increase blood circulation, nutrients and oxygen supply to vital body systems. It also allows cerebrospinal fluid to flow more efficiently and abundantly throughout the entire body and enhances our internal life force energy. Through utilizing YogaSkills, practitioners develop specialized yoga skills that can be applied in many lifetime events.
