Eischens Yoga

  • Can you move throughout your day without neck, shoulder and back pain?
  • Can you tie your shoes easily without struggling to reach your laces?
  • Can you lift grocery bags without worry of pulling a muscle?
  • Can you play your favorite sports or activities without fear of aches or pains?

IF you answered NO to any, then Eischens Yoga is for you!!

FACT: Aches and pain come from imbalances in our body and mind. Each ache / pain is in need of balancing that which is not balanced….that which is weak, that which lacks full range and stability. Eischens Yoga uniquely engages active alignment ….thus bringing strength to that which was weak, brings full range of motion from lack of motion and stability from instability.

What is the difference between static stretching and active alignment?

FACT: NO animal on the planet does static stretching…so why do so many humans do it? It’s un-natural, our body fights it and it does not lead to balance in the body. Active Alignment, on the other hand, is natural, our body loves it, and it does lead to a balanced body!! And everyone, regardless of your flexibility or fitness level can do Eischens Yoga Active Alignment!!

Eischens Yoga strengthens weak links through verbal and visual cues as well as hands on partner feedback

Active Alignment cannot be achieved by the static stretching done by most people. Let me repeat this again…ONLY humans do static stretching!! No other species on the planet does…all others do active alignment movements periodically throughout the day!

Named after the late Roger Eischens who founded this very unique and powerful style of yoga. Roger studied under B.K.S. Iyengar for 13 years in Puna India and blended those amazing techniques with his Masters Studies and experiences of the huge benefit of People helping People. He used this style called it High Energy Yoga (now named Eischens Yoga in memory and honor of Roger)  to address muscle imbalances that caused injuries. By recieving partner feedback we make greater gains to each and all poses (30% greater than by oneself studies have shown) stimulating muscle groups that are not working, Eischens Yoga releases tight muscles that are working too hard. The power of this practice is amazing.

“In my 37 years of training athletes and celebrities nothing comes close to healing aches and pains of the body like Eischens Yoga. In 1997 I moved back to Madison WI from Los Angeles. I was a physical mess. I had devastating knee and back pain that completely crushed my ability to run, jump or do any dynamic movements. I thought it was my life’s design to not be able to move freely again despite doing all types of therapies including chiropractic, physical therapy, soft tissue and more.

Fortunately, I met Roger Eischens. Roger taught me his secret techniques to healing and re-balancing the body. What I learned blew my mind! I was an NBA Strength Coach and a Head Instructor for the National Academy of Sports Medicine and I thought I knew my stuff. I could not fix myself despite my years of training. I worked with Roger doing his brand of yoga for only two minutes and I was 80% better!  I was able to walk, run, jump again immediately with very little pain. This convinced me to jump in with both feet as I realized this is the most effective system for healing broken bodies. This is the ONLY alignment training we teach at the Monkey Bar Gym and we use EY as the foundation of all our movement training as well. Eischens Yoga was so powerful to me that i asked Roger would it be okay to blend EY with body-weight and other movements to create a more powerful foundation for all movements? Roger loved the idea and the Monkey Bar Gym was born!”
