About the Workshops

The Subtle Energy Yoga workshops are designed to help you develop a meditative yoga practice. They are currently given at the Unity Spiritual Center in Palo Alto, CA.

Wear loose, comfortable clothing. Accessories will be provided, but bring a water bottle, your favorite meditation cushion, and a yoga block, if you have them.

  • Energy Flow Yoga & Meditation (weekly classes)
    Experience the amazing benefits of Energy Flow Meditation — the perfect practice for a busy mind. Ignited by an easy, seated form of yoga, Energy Flow Meditation is a powerful, positive, and ultimately practical breath-based meditation technique that can make a huge difference in your life.
    Guided by Meditation Coach Eric, you learn the energy flow breath and develop the posture needed for prolonged meditation. Then you add internal energy activations to create a connection with something far greater than yourself — an experience characterized by inner calm and boundless joy that can quite accurately be called enlightenment (not to be confused with "perfection" :_).

    You won't be on the floor (unless you want to), and you won't twist yourself into weird positions. 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.

  • Energy Flow Yoga & Meditation (Teacher's Workshop)
    This 8-session workshop is intended for teachers, and anyone who wants to deepen their energy-flow meditation practice. In these sessions, we go into the history of the practices, the science behind them, and why they have such a profound impact on your life.

  • Bench Yoga
    A yoga session that focuses on using a Yoga Meditation Bench to develop a meditation practice of your own. Activities include asanas for sitting flexibility, exercises for sitting strength, plus general strengthening techniques and standard yoga asanas, all done with a bench.

    Like Chair Yoga, the practices make yoga into something anyone can do. Unlike Chair Yoga, however, you aren't forever limited to a chair for sitting. Instead, you acquire the tools you need to eventually sit on the floor or out in nature, and even grow into Lotus Pose.

    Because the practices have a way of stimulating energy flows, meditation periods are built in so you can revel in those flows. And you are encouraged to take a break whenever you feel moved to do so--by sitting, meditating, and deeply experiencing the internal flow of energy.

  • Subtle Energy Mantra
    Explore the effect of sound on our subtle energy systems. Combine subtle energy breathing techniques with new ways of doing mantras, mindfully focusing attention on the attendant energy flows.
