Devotee Practicing Energization Exercise The Energization Exercises are a set of 39 exercises which can instantly recharge the human body with an unlimited supply of cosmic energy. Our will power is the switch. The greater the will, the greater the flow of energy, said Yogananda.

Principles of Energization Exercises:

  • The greater the will, the greater the flow of energy.
  • Tense with will, relax and feel.
