Portland welcomes Lauren Walker, the creator of Energy Medicine Yoga to teach us how to offer something special to our students. The moment I began reading Lauren's book "Energy Medicine Yoga," I knew I needed to learn this and share it with others. And I love what Cyndi Dale had to say about her book. "There are ages of wisdom within these two covers. A deep and transformational marriage of the magic of energy and the power of yoga."
Come share in 4 days of practicing and learning this beaultiful union of energy and yoga. We are all in for a treat!

What is Energy Medicine 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.
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.
Teaching Style: Lauren created Energy Medicine Yoga, which is her signature style and complements any kind of practice you do. Using simple to learn techniques based on ancient practices and wisdom, the student can increase the efficacy of their practice while actually diminishing the time practiced. Energy Medicine Yoga is a powerful practice for decreasing anxiety and stress, increasing energy, core strength, and well being. It can also be pivotal in healing longstanding physical and emotional issues. It is easy to learn, fun, intuitive and empowering.
