Energy Shift Yoga & Wellness is dedicated to teaching simple but effective techniques which results in a relaxed state of mind and body. Energy Shift Yoga is a blend of the most effective yoga techniques, postures and movements from Kundalini, Hatha, Tibetan, and Shamanic Yoga. Through the practice of all these yoga techniques one achieves a healthier; mind, body, breath, and energy field. Energy Shift Yoga is a gentle form of yoga that is appropriate for beginners, people that are new to yoga, and anyone who would like to learn simple but effective techniques to release stress energy.
Our teaching approach is "focus on breath", being aware of the breath and allowing the breath to guides us through our movements and postures. Allowing the breath to resonate within us and expand outward to every point within us. As we focus on the union of breath and movement we begin to release stress form our body and relax. Becoming more centered, focus, relaxed, and happy.

Awakening & Exercising your YOGA BODY
It does not matter what size or shape you are in, the fact is we all have a Yoga Body. Awaken your YOGA BODY.
We take time to exercise our physical body when we go to the gym. We exercise our mental body in school or by learning new things. We take time to exercise our financial body by going to work every day. When we exercise any aspect of our body or life we bring more of that which we focus on and practice or exercise, into our life. If you want more money work more, if you want more muscles go to the gym more, and if you want to learn or know more go to school or read more. Therefore if you would like better health, happiness, and peace of mind exercise your YOGA BODY.
When your YOGA BODY has awakened you feel healthy, happy, energized, peaceful and at ease. The mind feels centered, minimal to no internal mental chatter, your emotional body is calm and you feel a sense of peace and lightness all around.
The idea behind exercising your Yoga Body is different from what you may normally consider exercising such as in a gym environment. In a gym setting we workout to lose weight or gain muscle mass, our intention is very specific. The workouts in a gym environment are tough, extraneous, and challenging. You push yourself to the limits and sometimes that’s to much, and you find yourself exhausted, and physically overly stressed.
When you exercise your Yoga Body your intention is different then from going to the gym. It is a mind, body, energy and feelings approach. The Yoga Body is made up of, and is the unity or integration of, the physical body, emotional body, mental body, and the energy body. Therefore in a yoga studio environment we exercise and unify all of these aspects of our physical body.
Exercising your Yoga Body stimulates all aspects of the physical body just enough so that the body will respond in a health promoting fashion, activating your immune system, stimulating your metabolism, energizing your heart, etc... For example when we focus on a deep yogic breath, our blood fills with more oxygen, and we release more toxins through our full exhalations. As this happens our blood becomes more alkaline. When our blood becomes alkaline our cells are happy, healthy, and the body rebuilds and repairs itself. So with this simple yogic exercise we feel better, we don’t worry about health issues, and your YOGA BODY awakens.
Creating A Healthy Yoga Habit In 21 Days
One of the biggest challenges of starting something new is continuing it. Therefore the key to continuing a healthy practice such as yoga is getting into the habit of doing yoga. So to help students introduce yoga into there busy life, and develop the healthy habit of doing yoga, we offer unlimited weekely and monthly classes rates. This allows you to come to our yoga studio as often as desired and attend any and all the classes that we offer each day that we are open. The more you attend and practice the quicker your habit for doing yoga will form.
We form good & bad habits all the time some consciously but many unconsciously. Science has discovered that it takes about 21 days to form a habit, good or bad. Good habits take time and effort to cultivate, at least 21 days of constant practice and focus. Our unlimited membership rates will help you meet that 21 day yoga habit forming challenge.
Ideally the best way to meet this yoga habit forming challenge is to attend a yoga class everyday, however this might not be currently possible. So as an alternative, for the next 21 days attend as many yoga class as you can, 2, 3, or 4+ times per week, and on the days that you can not attend, set aside some time 5, 10 or 15 minutes, to focus on your yoga body. Use the yogic breath, visualize & feel your yoga body. This way you maintain a constant yoga awareness for the next 21 days.
Setting Your Goal to Create a Yoga Habit of Wellness
The next biggest challenges of starting something new is finding the time and space to create a habit. We have our yoga studio space available so only time is required. We are all very busy everyday and have many responsibilities and habits throughout our day. Starting something new is all about creating the space and time within your busy schedule. Setting a goal to introduce yoga into your life is a good start. Set your goals and always keep your goals in mind, your goal: for the next 21 days, practice as much yoga as possible, to create the habit and successfully introduce yoga into your life. Prioritize your time if something is important enough set some time aside. We offer many classes throughout the day and week, so finding a time to practice yoga is easier.
A yoga practice is an investment in your future health and quality of life. Your yoga practice is your health insurance. It insures a healthy future. Stress energy and negative thinking is what holds us back, as we release this stress energy, we gain more energy for other aspects of our life. The more you practice yoga the easier it becomes. Practicing yoga will produce more energy, happiness and healthiness in your life. Once we get started it becomes easier each time then soon it becomes a good habit, you can feel and experience the difference in wellness and health. We look forward to seeing you, and witnessing your transformation.
