Energy Flow Yoga & Meditation
Energy Flow Yoga & Meditation is a new kind of yoga that everyone can do and anyone can benefit from.
Guided by Coach Eric, the practice focuses on breathwork and internal energy flows. You'll use a Yoga Meditation Bench to develop the strength & flexibility required to sit comfortably for meditation, anywhere.
You'll learn the techniques of energy-flow meditation--a practice that leads to a joyful connection with something far greater than yourself--an experience that can only be described as "enlightenment".
Wear easy on/off shoes and loose, comfortable clothing, but don't expect to sweat. Bring a meditation cushion and/or yoga block, if you have them. (A yoga mat is not required. Class size is limited, so register early!)
About Energy Flow Meditation
Energy Flow Meditation combines the Asian tradition of chi (internal energy) with the traditions of pranayama (breathwork) and chakras (energy centers) from India. Practiced regularly, it produces a substantial, recognizable flow of internal energy.
The practice is known for its stress relief, calming effect, positive outlook, and happier life. It helps you connect to Universal Mind, Universal Love, and Universal Energy. You experience yourself as an energy being, and become inwardly connected to the greater energy that pervades the Universe.
It helps you easily rise above life’s little upsets, let go of frustration, and know your purpose on this earth. You gain a clear sense of direction, and have solutions appear as if by magic to your mind and in your life.
About the Class
This workshop series leaves you with an advanced practice you can do, and will want to do. Each class lasts an hour. The first half of the workshop focuses on breathwork, posture, and enhancing your sitting position. The second half on internal energy activations and applications. (You won’t be contorting yourself into weird positions, either. This is a practice anyone can do!)
We go into the history of the practices, how to perform them, and the science that explains why they have such a profound impact on your life, so you have an in-depth understanding of how it works and why we do it. (Once your brain is convinced--and you have experienced results--it's no longer something you have to take on faith!)
The good news is that you don’t have to sit on the floor (unless you want to). Instead, we'll use a Yoga Meditation Bench to achieve a comfortable meditation posture right from the outset. As we progress, you'll learn how to use the bench to become comfortable on the floor. So unlike a chair, you won't be limited forever.
About Your Practice
Not everyone has a Yoga Meditation Bench at home, of course. But consistent, regular practice is key to deriving the benefits of meditation, and to establishing your own internal connection to the vast ocean energy that pervades the universe.
Not to worry! There are alternatives you can use at home--alternatives many students have used to their advantage. Or you can make a simple version of your own. (All will be discussed in the first class.)
After that, it's all about developing a habit of regular, consistent practice. Even 2 minutes at a time, day after day, has a profound effect, in time. So the first session will help you identify "meditation triggers" that work for you in your daily life.
