EMYoga is a synthesis of yoga and Energy Medicine. The power of this style of yoga is that it greatly increases the benefits of a regular yoga practice without increasing the time devoted to it. Incorporating simple techniques into an existing practice, or doing these simple techniques on their own, helps to balance the nine energy systems of the body. When in balance, these energy systems help to keep you strong, vital, healthy and focused. They work on your immune system, endocrine system and lymphatic systems especially. Additionally we work with focus on breath for releasing pain and stuck energy as well as learning techniques to change your habit fields, helping to foster the ability to implement new, positive habits for overall health and well being.

Learn Simple Techniques to:
Boost your vitality and stamina
Strengthen your immune system
Keep yourself young
Change your habit patterns
Increase flexibility and focus
Strengthen deep core muscles
Balance your endocrine system
Release stuck patterns and pain

Learn techniques to help: the immune system, the endocrine system, helping the body to heal faster, increase your core strength in a dynamic way, change patterns and habits. Learn how to pattern and move energy in the context of a yoga class.

You do not have to have prior yoga experience to take this class. This class is suitable for beginners through teachers of yoga.

The goal of EMYoga is to balance the body. A strong yoga practice, woven through with the 9 energy systems, speaks to the body in its own language. These techniques are easy to learn and master and they empower your current yoga practice while awakening dormant energies and helping the body to heal and thrive. You’ll learn ancient lost techniques and new powerful tools to boost the power of your practice.
