Taught by Rashmi Dave
Would you like to be joyful and energetic? Would you like to have energy at your fingertips, whenever you need it? Learn the secret to energy and will power in the set of 39 tension exercises which are called Energization Exercises. Though normally taught as part of yoga or meditation, we are offering these life transforming exercises for the first time on their own! The Energization Exercises are the basis for several other health and exercise systems that have evolved since Yogananda first taught them decades ago. In this four-week series you will learn:

  •  How and why tension stimulates the flow of life force in the body·
  •  How to use tension to release tension!
  • How energy enters the physical body and can be called upon at will
  • How to stimulate blood flow in the body and brain
  • Balancing the different life currents of metabolizing, crystallizing, assimilating, eliminating and circulating
  •  What energy feels like in the body
  •  How to overcome fatigue at will
  • How to cauterize a cold from “getting you”
  •  Why gym exercises differ from the energization exercises
  • A new form of exercise for a new age

Our text will be a DVD and a poster of the exercises. Presented by Ananda yoga and meditation teacher, Rashmi Dave with assistance from Dakshina Agee, meditation teacher.
