My name is Eric Faqir,
I have been teaching yoga and
martial arts for 30 years in the United States and overseas. My unique
mind-body training methods have been featured on the front page of The Wall
Street Journal and on the CBS Evening News.
I have taught workshops, group
classes and teacher training programs at national fitness organizations and

Classically trained in yoga systems
from India and China and in various forms of Chinese martial arts and trigger point therapy, I studied overseas for more than
seven years where I attended leading schools and trained with masters in India,

While living abroad, I completed intensive
training programs involving various forms of yoga, including Ashtanga, Qi Gong
