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.

Overview of Level 2 Training:
Level 2 brings your knowledge and understanding of EMYoga to a deeper level. You’ll gain another layer of understanding of some of the concepts and techniques you’re already familiar with. You’ll also learn new content and ways to bring this into current classes and practice. Once again, you’ll get a chance to focus on clearing your own personal stuff, continuing the theme of self-work and transformation, so that you have a clearer level of awareness from which to teach.
