Energy Medicine Yoga with Lauren Walker

What is it that makes yoga practitioners feel so good after a session—more so than after other kinds of exercise or stretching? “Yoga was created to directly stimulate and move us at the energetic level,” teaches Lauren Walker. Yet it can take an hour or more to gain the subtle benefits of yoga practice, and many of us don’t have the luxury of being able to devote that much time to a regular daily routine. That’s why Walker created Energy Medicine Yoga—a breakthrough book, and now into a workshop that combines yoga with the most effective practices of energy medicine to vastly increase the benefits of your practice.
Lauren Walker has adapted the renowned energy medicine techniques pioneered by her own teacher, Donna Eden, so they integrate seamlessly into the movements and postures of yoga practice. “These tools are simple, easy to learn, and fit right in with what any yoga practitioner is already doing,” Walker explains. “They’ll allow you to work smarter, not harder—so you can have a healthy body full of energy, zest, and joy for what life has to offer.”
Energy Medicine Yoga teaches how to balance and heal the 9 major energy systems of the body. Lauren Walker brings her teachings to Health Yoga Life for a special Energy Medicine workshop. Experience your own inner
magic and re-inspire your life both on and off the mat!

Yoga Assisting & Alignment Workshop

handandheartSimilar to your yoga practice, assisting is about presence, possibility, connection and action. It is not about forcing the perfect pose. It is about guidance and insight allowing the right pose to emerge for every body. Join us for the Yoga Assisting and Alignment (YAA) Intensive where you will learn about healthy alignment, key aspects of assisting, and how to assist in a direct, effective and safe manner. Completion of the YAA intensive is required for anyone interested in becoming a yoga classroom assistant.

In this very interactive hands-on workshop, we will explore different approaches for assisting and how to physically and energetically work with others. Come prepared to work on your mat and with the other participants. We will review alignment and how to correct an asansa without taking away from a student’s self-exploration of the pose. The intensive will also build a community of peers that will support your growth and learning.

This program is designed for students and teachers of all levels of experience. The YAA Intensive is suitable for:
◊ Anyone who loves the practice and wants to learn more
◊ Those seeking to understand proper alignment of yoga poses
◊ Teachers who would like to bring safe and effective assisting into their classrooms
◊ Those interested in working with others in the yoga classroom as an assistant
◊ Anyone who might want to explore teaching
◊ Students who would like to engage with their yoga community

Join us for a weekend full of practical and informative tips and techniques that you will be able to take back to your mat or to your class immediately! It will not only rev-up your practice it will open you up to more possibilities of engaging with yoga in your life!

Saturday May 31st from 12:30pm-4:00pm
& Sunday June 1st from 12:30pm-4:00pm
$199 for both days.
