According to Muata Ashby (2005), "Yoga is any process which helps one to achieve liberation or freedom from the bondage of human existence. So whenever you engage in any activity with the goal of promoting the discovery of your true self, be it studying the wisdom teachings, practicing them in your daily life, practicing exercises to keep the mind and body healthy for meditation, rituals to lead the mind toward the divine or meditation on the divine, you are practicing yoga".
Kemetic or Kemet is originally known as "black land" or "land of the blacks". Kemet is the land of what is present day Egypt. So the connection with Kemetic Yoga can be looked at (or understood) as Egyptian Yoga and as many connections as you can make with the definition of each word.

This pledge means lot to me, not just because it was part of my certification process, but because it puts into words how I feel about myself and others. You are divine, therefore I am divine. I am serious about Kemetic Yoga and I'm committed to sharing it with those who are open to embracing it as a practice or as a way of life. I forever want my life to reflect the divine energy test connects with us all.
