about yogi e
Eric Walrabenstein (a.k.a. Yogi E) is the founder and director of Yoga Pura in Phoenix, Arizona. He has been a dedicated student of yoga and various Eastern philosophies for many years. E's classes cut straight to the root of all human suffering; namely our case of mistaken identity. Fiercely committed to yoga in its original context of enlightenment, E's classes can be at once mesmerizingly interesting and maddeningly challenging.
Making ancient and esoteric truths relevant for daily living is at the core of what makes E's classes especially potent. His penetrating knowledge of ancient philosophies combines with his over 20 years of teaching and mentoring others to yield life changing potential. E skillfully wields the many techniques of yoga to effectively lead students to the perception of their true Selves—and the experience of freedom. He spends much of his time training new and experienced teachers to be able to do the same.
In addition to directing Yoga Pura, E is the architect of the Yoga Pura Advanced Studies and Teacher Training program, the designer of Yoga Pura's Enlightenment Camps, and the co-director of the Amrit Yoga Institute's teacher training programs. He is actively involved in making yoga more accessible to the masses while preserving its original integrity. E is currently at work on a book about the yoga of unreasonable happiness. He teaches yoga and trains yoga teachers from around the world.
