A Special 2-Hour Workshop on The Energization Exercises

Recorded December 09, 2021

 

About the Workshop

Paramhansa Yogananda called the Energization Exercises his unique contribution to the science of yoga.

This workshop is for those who have learned the Energization Exercises already, such as Kriya Yogis and students on Ananda’s Path of Kriya Yoga. In this webinar we will:

  • Revisit the key principles that govern the Energization Exercises and the numerous benefits that come from their regular practice
  • Go over common mistakes that even long-time practitioners can make and how to avoid them
  • Review all the Energization Exercises in detail

Participant Testimonials:

“I’m fairly experienced with this practice and was looking for a better understanding of a few movements. I got that and way more. It’s a detailed masterclass that went beyond my expectation and showed me where I need to improve.” — Coleen C., California

“This workshop was SUPERB and not to be missed. No matter what your level of experience with the Energization Exercises, you will find inspiration and lots of practical guidance. Sagar is a dynamic, joyful and charming teacher and he does a fantastic job of covering both the basics and the nuances of the techniques.

If you are a long-time, regular energizer, you will appreciate the discussion of the finer points and everyone can learn from his excellent guidance of the basic techniques applied to each exercise in a concise, logical way. Although there is plenty of instruction of the physical techniques, the class is filled with inspiration, guidance and reminders about the highest purpose of the practice.

I have been Energizing (and teaching Energization) for years and I have read and watched a lot of material about the EEs, so I feel well-qualified in saying that this was the best presentation I have seen.” — Nancy C., Seattle

Quotes on the Energization Exercises

Paramhansa Yogananda (Autobiography of a Yogi):

“Realizing that man’s body is like an electric battery, I reasoned that it could be recharged with energy through the direct agency of the human will. . . I therefore taught the Ranchi students my simple “Yogoda” techniques by which the life force, centred in man’s medulla oblongata, can be consciously and instantly recharged from the unlimited supply of cosmic energy.

Paramhansa Yogananda (How to Have Courage, Calmness and Confidence):

Learn the method of controlling energy. Your body is like a little bubble of energy in the cosmic sea of energy. You can contact cosmic energy and bring that energy into your body through the Energization Exercises.

Swami Kriyananda (Awaken to Supersconsciousness):

Two things are important for bringing the energy under control: awareness, and will power. The greater the will, the greater the flow of that energy. And the greater the awareness of that energy, the easier it will be for us to redirect it toward the Spiritual Eye.

Paramhansa Yogananda created a unique system, which he called “energization exercises,” to help people in attaining this energy-control. His system helps to direct energy to the body and, afterward, to withdraw it again from the body in meditation. These exercises give awareness of the energy, and, by means of that awareness, the ability to manipulate its flow in the body at will.

By practicing these exercises daily, you’ll develop exceptional ability to heal your body, and even to achieve success in your outward undertakings. You’ll find it possible to attract desired opportunities, and to draw inspiration at will.

I’ve experienced the effectiveness of these exercises many times, in little ways and in great.

    This is a very important class for those of us on the path. As Sagar mentioned so beautifully through analogy, The need for support is a very real thing. Though true we need proper balance with this. That is to say that if we think another is going to do it for us, thats missing the mark, if we think we are going to do it alone that to is off track. We need the support of the teachings ,the teachers, each other and at the same time we need to apply our own effort. This class is one of those supports that if applied is of tremendous benefit to us. Thank you Sagar for an insightful class.

    Dear Sagar, thank you for this enjoyable and helpful review of the Energization Exercises.
    It was great to become more aware of the subtle nuances of these wonderful practices, which we tend to overlook in our daily practice. Therefore, I do highly recommend reviewing them from time to time yo get the most out of them.
    Blessings to you all,
    Chris

    I’ve been doing Energization for years– on and off – and hadn’t realized how sloppy my practice had become. I particularly needed to be reminded of the importance of releasing and relaxing fully after the contractions. I’d been hurrying through them. I also appreciated being reminded of how they benefit so many systems and how important it is to do them often, daily if possible. Thank you for this refresher!

    This is a Masterclass that I will watch many times, it is so important!! … Sagar and Jitendra bring the energisation exercises alive with a deeper understanding and as always with Sagar, a great sense of joy and humour. . There are many tweaks that will not only refine my practice but correct it! I honestly thought I was pretty accurate with my EE – but there were many little areas – for example, the very first exercise I was doing incorrectly by tensing the whole body in a wave which I now know how to do correctly instead…. Sagar’s easy explanations and demonstrations, at an excellent pace, bring a new understanding, inspiration and joy to my practice. THANK YOU!!!!

    Thanks, Sagar and Jitendra, for carrying this amazing work! Very well structured class on energization. Concentration and attention to this particular technique helps a lot. When we feel we already know we loose much on the way. Thanks for keeping the teachings in a humble manner. Namaste, my friends.

    Wow! I´m so glad I signed up for this workshop. I have been doing the EE for quite a while and it was extremely beneficial to watch the proper movements so I could correct the exercises accordingly. This was so detailed and explained so well. Thank you Sagar and Jitendra. I will be watching the video over and over again.

    Sagar and Jitendre thank you so much for this in-depth review. Although I initially I learned these at the beginning of 2021 during my meditation course and have been so grateful for the added benefits to my life experience, I was further gratified to discover that a few tweaks were absolutely necessary. Thank you for the wonderful, very thorough teachings you provide for the betterment of all. With appreciation, Elisabeth Reichenbach

    Thankyou to the dynamic duo of Sagar and Jitendra. Massively important to me was the realization that the exercises were about attuning to the Master in addition to the other benefits. I hadn’t fully understood this at all and it’s made a difference. So for that alone I’m grateful. I’ll be re watching over time.

    Thank you, Sagar! Your review of the Energization Exercises was most excellent! You demonstrated each exercise in an easily followed manner and also included helpful tips on how to avoid common mistakes.

    I have been doing EE’s for about 3 1/2yrs daily and was pleasantly surprised to find that this class helped me refine them and correct some of my errors!
    Jitendra and Sagar made a dynamic duo and their fun-loving easygoing manner made the class enjoyable and informative!
    Definitely recommend for every level of seeker!

    Namaste,
    This review tonight was excellent. As I have mentioned, these Energizations have brought physical healing for me. I often do them independently when I’m feeling the need to work in a tight area. I observed how you go from tense to relax with a slight hand release. It’s a good reminder to release at that moment, but not actually a movement of itself, it just gives the transition from one to the other. As a former Hatha instructor, I understand these exercises from that prior training. What Master has done in developing these to be done in this sequence is Brillance! They maximize the entire body, & nervous system and prepare it for meditation.
    Thank all of you who have made these classes so welcoming, sharing the connection of oneness which has no distance when it’s in our hearts.
    Blessings, Carol

    Showing and explaining the Energization exercises improved some of the exercises I have been doing until now. During the last exercise I missed the looking at the point between the eyebrows. However, all together I enjoyed the clear explanations very much!

    This class fills a great need, which is adequate time to review the nuances of all 39 Energization Exercises. Most of us learned to energize during our first classes or sadhanas with Ananda. Adequate, but it’s easy to make the same mistakes your instructor makes.
    I can say that after 15+ years of energizing, I definitely was able to refine my practice. Thank you, Sagar!

    Just what I needed! Sagar’s demonstrations and explanations of the Energization Exercises refreshed the mind and body. Feeling the tension in the proper proportion per exercise kept me focused. I’m able to feel the difference in the body part in relaxation. The workshop also showed me the correct form so I can correct some errors that crept into my practice. Thank you for a wonderful workshop. I’m sure to refer to this video again and again. Namaste.

    A wonderful review of the Energization Exercises. I’m fairly experienced with this practice and was looking for a better understanding of a few movements. I got that and way more. It’s a detailed masterclass that went beyond my expectation and showed me where I need to improve. I will watch it over and over again to continue progressing and get more attuned with the core principles behind the exercises. Sagar delivered the class with enthusiasm, humor and grace. A big thank you as well for giving us lifetime access.

  20. 5 out of 5

    The exercises are explained in a simple way with specific details on what should be the emphasis for each exercise. Delivered with fantastic enthusiasm, it is a definite watch for anyone trying to get better with the Energization exercises.

    The workshop on “Refining your Energizing Exercises” was beyond my expectations. I thought I knew and was doing the exercises perfectly.

    The movements, breathing and the tensing were clearly demonstrated by Bramachari Sagar. I felt the difference while doing the exercises during the workshop.

    Bramachari Sagar has demonstrated his humility, charismatic and simplicity personality in explaining all the moves with patience and clarity.

    I would recommend any one no matter how long they have been doing the exercises to do this workshop.

    Thank you.

    Thank you Sagar and Jitendra for a wonderful and tremendously helpful review of the Energization Exercises.
    It was great to be reminded of the subtle nuances of these wonderful practices, which we tend to overlook in our daily practice. Therefore, I would highly recommend reviewing them from time to time either in person or virtually. It was especially great to practice them together in real time. Thanks for this wonderful opportunity !

    Very helpful, in-depth explanation of proper way to do energization exercises with emphasis on posture, tension, breathing and benefits.

    This class/workshop was SUPERB and not to be missed. No matter what your level of experience with the Energization Exercises, you will find inspiration and lots of practical guidance. Sagar is a dynamic, joyful and charming teacher and he does a fantastic job of covering both the basics and the nuances of the techniques. If you are a long-time, regular energizer, you will appreciate the discussion of the finer points and everyone can learn from his excellent guidance of the basic techniques applied to each exercise in a concise, logical way.
