Pranayama workshops

In the yogic tradition, the breath is the outward manifestation of prana, or vital energy. Gaining control of the breath by practising breathing exercises - pranayama - increases the flow of prana through the body which recharges body and mind.    

 

Each workshop will consist of 10 minutes theory, 30 minutes asanas with individual corrections, 10 minutes deep relaxation, 40 minutes pranayama (Kapalabhati, Anuloma Viloma, and minor pranayamas like Sitali, Sitkari and Brahmari).

 Vegetarian Cooking Workshops

The yogic tradition advocates a vegetarian diet. Predominantly plant-based, this diet ensures that your food gets its energy directly from the sun, the source of all life. Pure ingredients produce energy for our body as well as for our thought processes.  By following a well balanced vegetarian diet, the benefits of the Yoga exercises will increase.

 

The workshop will start with a theoretical explanation of the yogic diet followed by a practical workshop featuring a vegetarian cooking demonstration. Included are detailed cooking instructions and much joy in the preparation and consumption of the vegetarian dishes.
