Heru-Em-Akhet (Kemetic Sphinx)
A Kemetic Movement Tutorial
This lesson is a tutorial on the Kemetic Sphinx pose, Heru-Em-Akhet. The Sphinx statue sits guard at the Pyramids of Giza, the burial ground of ancient Egyptian pharaohs. This position differs greatly from the Sphinx position in Westernized Yoga, and more clearly represents its namesake.
Kemetic Yoga™ is a healing and regenerative ancient Egyptian system of Yoga enlightenment based upon the practices of physical movements combined with controlled deep breathing and meditation. Characterized by a series of geometrically progressive postures, the modern version of this ancient system was developed from primary research conducted by Dr. Asar Hapi and Master Yirser Ra Hotep (Elvrid Lawrence) of Chicago during the 1970s.
