These are comparable with the Noble Eightfold Path of Buddhist Dharma, the teachings of Amennakht, Ptah Hotep, Kagemini, Tehuti/ Hermes Trismegistus and Seti I as found in the Tomb of Seti I (1350 B.C.E) predating the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (200 B.C.E).
The yoga sutras yama, niyama, asana, pranayama, pratyahara, dhyana and samadhi are integral within the teachings of Seti I and so are established within the disciplines of PIMAY.
An emphasis of co-ordinating movement, dance and awareness of muscles, internal organs and emotional effects of movements are emphasized in PIMAY. They are said to release emotional blockages, increase vitality, improve circulation, libido, coordination and balance, ensuring a strong foundation for meditational poses.
Unlike the Western and Indian approaches, where students are fixated to static movements of the body and suppressed emotions, a PIMAY – class is verbal and lively with precise instructions and corrections to movements and postures. A typical class encourages freedom of movement in the hips, torso, arms and legs.
PIMAY system has 9 main disciplines:
1. Smai – science of the breath
2. Proper exercise
6. Steadying of the mind or meditation
7. Hika Mantra
