What Is Energy Medicine Yoga?
Walker marries Tantra Yoga, as learned from her teacher Rod Stryker, with Eden Energy Medicine, developed by Energy Medicine author Donna Eden. Eden’s practice taps into the nadis, the chakras, the meridians of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and other ancient body maps. Walker says her practice, Energy Medicine Yoga, can help remedy everything from the doldrums to full-blown disease. When you learn to shift the way energy flows in your body, there’s the potential to boost stamina, balance your immune system, and recover from emotional trauma, she says.
Walker’s practice incorporates “taps,” “handholds,” and other energy techniques right into a yoga sequence. Sound newfangled? The practices are ancient, actually—and as primitive as beating your chest, like Tarzan.
