#42DaysOfMaat: Day 39
Law: “I am humble”
Pose: Scorpion

To be humble is not to be passive, it is a quality that is a reflection of balance in oneself. Humble does not mean invincible, but so strong that muscle need not be shown.

Begin in same position as when you enter Maat Headstand, except bound your hands together to create a wall in front of the head on the floor (Do NOT rest your head on your hands). After walking the feet in, inhale and lift the knees up and in to the chest. Exhale as you extend the legs straight up. Inhale as you place the palms flat to the mat and push the hips forward, then exhale as you arch the back, bend the knees in more, and release the toes downward. Inhale as you press the forearms down to the mat and lift the head and neck up to look straight ahead, then exhale relaxing into the position. Inhale, then turn your head to the left as you exhale, inhale it back to center, then exhale as you turn head over your right shoulder. To come out of the position, inhale head back to center then exhale head down to the mat. Place bound hands back in front of the head, then inhale the legs straight up, exhale as you bring the knees back in to the chest. Inhale, then exhale the toes down to the mat, inhale up high on the toes, then exhale as you bend the knees, release them down to the mat, and rest in Child Pose or Heruamkhet

Can’t WAIT to work the handstand in, thank you @memphisyogi for showing how I may practice against the wall :D Check out what @justingnelson has for us tomorrow and join in!

Law: “I hold purity in high esteem”
Pose: Edjo (Cobra)

No dilution or embellishment necessary. Cherish what is still pure.

Lay flat on the mat on your front with the chin resting on the back of the palms. Bring each flat palm to the mat underneath the the shoulders. Prepare to transfer the weight of your body in the heels of the hands then inhale as you straighten the elbows, raising the upper body up off the mat.

#42DaysOfMaat: Day 32
Law: “I am accepting”
Pose: Tawi Part II

Acceptance does not mean “liking”. You don’t have to like everything about yourself to accept You.

Practice Tawi Part I completely before beginning Part II. Bring your right hand along the mat to beside your right knee as you inhale, then twist at the waist to your left, bringing the left hand toward the left foot as you exhale. Inhale and raise the left left up, clasp the outside of the foot with your hand, then exhale as you pull the foot down and in toward your hip. Inhale, then exhale as you turn your head over your right shoulder. Inhale the head back over center, then exhale as you turn your head over the left shoulder. Inhale and bring the head back to center, exhale as you release the left foot down. Twist the upper body back to facing front with both hands on the mat underneath you, then inhale the left knee bent up to meet the right, return both feet to up on the toes in Sesh II. Repeat Tawi Parts I & II consecutively on the other side.

One year of Kemetic Yoga! Spider Pose::
The first image is at my first Kemetic Yoga Workshop with Kamean Daniels at the Healing Earth Temple. The second image is taken after exactly one year of practice at Firehawk Yoga Studio.
I still have a ton of practice ahead of me before I reach my goal, which is why I love Kemetic Yoga. With the YogaSkills Method, consisting mainly of the Rule of Four Breathing and Geometric Progression, I have achieved postures and a state of well-being I never imagined possible. I’m constantly inspired by the opportunity to learn more and continue sharing this authentic system to restore vitality and health within our people and community.

#42DaysOfMaat: Day 29
Law: “I am kind”
Pose: Khepera II

Kindness in thought and action is living with true purpose.

Begin square on hands and knees, knees aligned with the hips. Spread the toes out a little further, close to edge of your mat. Inhale and then exhale the seat bones down to sit in between the heels and place your palms on your thighs. Inhale raising the arms out in front of you, wrapping one arm around the other then binding palms, then exhale as you relax the upper body down to flat on the floor, keeping your gaze on your hands as you descend. Inhale as you raise both arms up toward the ceiling, then exhale as you release them over the head and relax them on the floor. Reverse yourself out of the position along with Rule of Four Breathing.

#42DaysOfMaat: Day 41
Law: “I advance through my own abilities”
Pose: The Split

Our progress is our own. Take OWNership of yours that is a result of dedicated practice.

This is a practice into the Split utilizing Rule of Four Breathing and Geometric Progression of the YogaSkills Method™
Practice Teken Lunge 3 times before beginning the Split from the Lunge pose. Plant your hands directly beneath your shoulders. Inhale releasing the left foot out in front of you and exhale as you flex that foot, straighten the knee, and release the hips downward. As you inhale, bring the hands back to underneath the shoulders and raise up on the toes of the right foot, rock back on the toes to elongate the right quads, and then exhale as you release the knee and instep back down, slightly further back on the mat. Check the back foot to make sure it remains in alignment with the right hip as you inch it back. Repeat until you have desired placement without overextending, and along with the breath. To come out of the pose, bring the hands up to the outsides of the knees, then inhale as you raise and bend the left knee, placing the foot between the hands, then exhale sinking back down into the Lunge pose.

#42DaysOfMaat: Day 40
Law: “I achieve with integrity”
Pose: Asar Hapi

Practice with strong moral principles and honesty toward Self.

Work in progress… This pose is named after Dr. Asar Hapi, one of the two Masters and main contributors of research to Kemetic Yoga that began in the 1970’s. Begin as you did in Cobra Pose, laying on your front. Roll over onto your left side, propping your head up with your left hand and slightly bend your knees, resting the right knee on the left. Grab your right foot with your right hand, and as you inhale lift the bent right leg up, then exhale it in toward the top of your head. [Advanced: Inhale as you bend the left knee more and raise the left foot up to touch the right leg, exhale the left palm and forearm down to the mat.] To come out of the pose, flow with Rule of Four Breathing as you reverse the order of steps you took getting into the pose.

#42DaysOfMaat: Day 38
Law: “I praise the Goddess and the God”
Pose: Maat Ka

Know and praise the God & Goddess within you!

Inhale both arms up around the sides of the body to above the head then exhale palms together. Inhale as you stretch up through the sides and look up in between the palms, then exhale as you release the head and neck back behind you.

#42DaysOfMaat: Day 37
Law: “I speak with good intent”
Pose: Maat Headstand

Communication may be disrupted or not as smooth as we’d like when we stray from our intention in speech. Our delivery is the control we have over our good intentions shining through.

Begin in Sesh II. Inhale then exhale as you place the head down on the mat in front of the knees, then place straight arms down comfortably beside you with the backside of the hand on the mat. Inhale as you straighten the knees, rising up high on the toes, then walk the feet in as you exhale. Inhale as you bend both knees in to the chest and feet off the floor, then exhale raising the legs straight up to the ceiling. Reverse yourself out of the pose along with slow and deep Rule of Four Breathing.

#42DaysOfMaat: Day 36
Law: “I keep the waters pure”
Pose: Peacock

Water is a force of Nature within and outside of us. With pure intentions, it can wash cleanse, replenish and protect the soul.

Begin square on hands and knees, knees aligned with the hips. Spread the toes out a little further, close to edge of your mat. Inhale and then exhale the seat bones down to sit in between the heels and place your palms on your thighs. Place your hands flat on the mat as far behind your seat bones with your wrists turned so fingers face behind you, then place the forehead on the mat. Inhale as you extend your left leg straight back and then exhale the other leg straight back, both feet on the insteps. Inhale as you raise the head, then exhale as you lift the feet together off the ground to parallel to the floor. Inhale deeply, then raise the heels up toward the ceiling while allowing the forehead to touch the floor as you exhale. To come out of the pose, inhale the head back up, lowering the legs, then exhale releasing the toes to the floor, then inhale as you bend the left knee, then the right, returning to sitting between the heels as you exhale.
