 Yoga addresses imbalances within the body in order to increase energy.  Classes aim to develop students’ insight into their imbalances: mis-alignments, injuries & restrictions, as well as how to correct them through postures, resistance & feedback.   

This yoga was developed by the late Roger Eischens, a long-time disciple of BKS Iyengar, and is based on principles of transformation in high energy physics.
