Electric Soul Yoga
After completing his first yoga class in 1998, Eric Paskel—founder of Electric Soul Yoga—couldn't help but notice that the rigid hierarchy of poses, adherence to "right" and "wrong" postures, and overblown, flowery language can be hard to relate to. Something was missing, and after a few years of yoga instruction and the opening of two studios, it became clear. Yoga's value lies beyond its physical aspects; it's about our lives and unity with the world we find ourselves in.
So, in July, 2000, Eric created Yoga Rocks, a system of yoga without hierarchy or expectations, but with music. The progressive approach and relatable, exciting method proved wildly popular. As his responsibility to his community grew, Eric met Vedanta guru Swami Parthasarathy in India and his relationship with yoga, himself, and the world were forever changed. Eric pivoted again and formed Electric Soul Yoga.
Like each student, Electric Soul Yoga is an ever-evolving entity. New classes and refreshing twists on his tried-and-true, musically-infused heated yoga classes help keep his yoga fun, engaging, and most importantly, meaningful.
