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 Workshop
    Experience the amazing benefits of Energy Flow Meditation — the perfect practice for a busy mind. Ignited by an easy, bench-based form of yoga anyone can do, Energy Flow Meditation is a powerful, positive, and ultimately practical breath-based meditation technique that can make a huge difference in your life.

    In this practice, breathwork and internal energy activations combine 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" :_).

    This 8-session workshop is intended for teachers and anyone who wants a deep dive into an energy-flow meditation practice (aka Kriya Yoga). Starting from basics, we develop an advanced practice, go into the history of the techniques, the science behind them, and why they can have such a profound impact on your life.

  • Weight Loss, Health, and Fitness
    Based on the book, The "Secret Science" of Weight Loss, this 8-week program adds energy-flow isometrics to activate every muscle in the body, large small, with no muscle soreness. You learn what to eat, what to avoid, and how to customize tailor a program that works for you.

  • 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.
