Headstand workshop

Thursday November 24 at 7pm
Saturday January 21 at 2pm

The headstand (sirshasana in Sanskrit) is also called the king of asanas as the posture has so many benefits for your body and mind. By reversing the normal effects of gravity, it rests the heart, aids circulation and relieves pressure on the lower back. A regular headstand practice helps to prevent back problems and improves memory and concentration. Inverting the body also deepens the breath, bringing a fresh supply of oxygen-rich blood to the brain.


Mastering the headstand requires no great strength. It is largely a matter of conquering fear and believing you can do it. The key to balance is the tripod formed by elbows and hands.


"Sirshasana (headstand) invigorates, energises, and vivifies. It is a true blessing and a nectar. You will find real pleasure and exhilaration of spirit in this asana".

 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.
