Quantum Spirituality with Sara Troy and her guest Lauren Walker, on air from May 10th
|Lauren has been named one of the top 100 most influential yoga teachers in America.|
Her new book outlines Walker’s system to help anyone who feels overwhelmed or anxious, as well as those struggling to recover from an intensely traumatic experience.
In Lauren Walker’s THE ENERGY TO HEAL: Find Lasting Freedom from Stress and Trauma Through Energy Medicine Yoga (Llewellyn; May 2022), Walker offers a crash course in her unique combination of energy work and yoga: Energy Medicine Yoga (EMYoga). Grounded in science and ancient healing practices, EMYoga provides tools to help us in the face of anxiety. Walker provides simple, step-by-step practices and gentle tools anyone can use to make EMYoga work for them. Whether in the midst of a crisis, on the brink of a meltdown, or just grappling with the stress of day-to-day life, EMYoga can help anyone alleviate stress and reclaim the joy in life.
In down-to-earth language, THE ENERGY TO HEAL explains what energy and Energy Medicine Yoga are, and why EMYoga is so effective. This approach to restoring emotional balance draws on two powers everyone has: energy and the mind. With knowledge and compassion, Walker discusses why energy is not only the best medicine but also essential for healing from stress and trauma.

Along with basic yoga poses and simple practices like deep breathing, THE ENERGY TO HEAL teaches how to use a unique tool: the 5E Star. Based on Chinese medicine’s Five Element Theory, the 5E Star sheds light on the five main difficult emotional responses we have for any event—fear, anger, anxiety, worry, and grief—and acts like a compass for calming whichever powerful emotion we’re feeling.
As Walker emphasizes, “life isn’t a one-and-done thing,” and likewise EMYoga is not a “one-and-done practice.” EMYoga is replicable and accessible, regardless of age or physical abilities, and even for yoga first-timers. Through her guide, these practices can readily become incorporated into daily life.
Lauren Walker has been teaching yoga and meditation since 1997 and created Energy Medicine Yoga while teaching at Norwich University, the oldest private military college in the country. She now teaches EMYoga across the US and internationally. She is frequently quoted and cited as an expert in Yoga Journal, Mantra Magazine, and Yoga Digest, and a feature article about her yoga work was published in The New York Times. Her two previous books, The Energy Medicine Yoga Prescription (2017) and Energy Medicine Yoga: Amplify the Healing Power of Your Yoga Practice (2014), both won the Nautilus Silver Award for Best Mind/Body publication. In 2016, she was named one of the top 100 most influential yoga teachers in America.
