Boost Your Well-being with Energy Awareness Workshops
How is your energy today? Have you noticed?

Often we are asked “How do you feel?” But “how is your energy today?!” — not so much! Yet, our feeling state is directly linked to our energetic state.

Quite possibly, you don’t think much about your energy. On the other hand, most of us notice when we feel exhausted, drained or depleted. And some are aware of their nervous energy, or even anxiety, from time to time. Developing energy awareness helps us to get more in touch with our own being-ness. And with simple tools, we can transform our inner energies to support every aspect of life.

The ancients were highly aware of the subtle life force energy. Depending on the tradition, it is known by many names, including prana, chi or qi. 

No matter what you call it, tapping into and working with your energy doesn’t have to be complicated! Simple techniques are empowering. To that end, CSA Practitioner Sandra Russi is offering three Energy Awareness workshops this summer. 

Whether you join 1, 2 or all 3 workshops, learning to work with your own energies can be life changing! Check out the workshop descriptions below and learn to enhance your well-being physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically and spiritually. Register for individual workshops or click here to register for all three at a discount

Energy Workshop #1: Saturday, July 20, 10:00 – 11:30 a.m.

Workshop # 1 focuses on learning about and practicing the Energization Exercises (EE). Paramhansa Yogananda brought the EE to the United States about 100 years ago. Not only do they help lift your energy, they also develop focus and concentration, and have numerous benefits, including for the nervous system. 

EE practice brings many benefits. Here is a partial list:

  • Vibrant good health and wellbeing
  • High and consistent energy levels (without jitteriness!)
  • Release physical, mental, and emotional tension trapped in the body
  • Recharge the body batteries instantly
  • Develop focus and concentration with ease
  • Absence or decrease of negative moods
  • Increase ability to overcome unwanted habits or attitudes
  • Greater depth and focus in meditation
  • Facilitate stillness of mind and openness of heart
  • Deeper connection and awareness of harmony with the universe, your higher Self, and the Divine Presence within.

Register for Workshop #1

Energy Workshop #2: Saturday, July 27, 10:00 – 11:30 a.m.

Workshop # 2 focuses on learning and practicing simple Energy Medicine (EM) techniques that anyone can do. Learn:

  • a simple 5-minute daily EM routine for overall health & wellness
  • EM to boost immune system health
  • EM to balance and harmonize your 9 energy systems
  • EM for supporting the hormones
  • EM techniques to help alleviate anxiety and return to a calm, focused state
Energy Workshop #3: Saturday, August 3, 10:00 – 11:30 a.m.
Workshop # 3 focuses on experiencing your energy through the practice of yoga nidra. Yoga nidra is completely effortless! There is no physical movement. Yet, it is so effective! You simply lie down in a comfortable position, supported with props, and listen. There are so many benefits to this deeply relaxing experience. Check out this partial list:
  • reduces stresses
  • lessens anxiety and PTSD
  • improves sleep quality and combats insomnia
  • enhances cognitive function
  • activates the parasympathetic nervous system (which is responsible for healing)
  • improves self-awareness
  • enhances awareness of Presence itself
