Join us on the morning of Saturday July 21 as we delve into an invigorating yoga class, and then share some ayurvedic refreshments and settle in with a spicy chai to talk about building immunity not just for protection from illness but also improving how you look and feel.
In this practical afternoon of yoga & ayurveda we will share the importance of and the benefits you will experience when your digestive fire (agni) is operating at its optimum.
At this session, we will cover:
A yoga class designed to bring balance and strengthen your agni (digestive fire)
The reasons we need to nurture our agni
The role it plays in wellbeing, vitality, immunity & more
Realistic tips & techniques on how you can support your agni on a daily basis
We are now offering Sunset Yoga classes at our Rooftop Shala every Tuesday and Thursday evening, 6pm - 7.15pm. Open to beginners and lower-intermediate level upward with a Hatha Vinyasa focus on stretching, strengthening and grounding.
The focus for next week will be the mid and lower back, hips, hamstrings and the classic surya namaskar (sun salute) practice
The day’s class will be themed according to the Ayurvedic daily rhythms, and can be beneficial in managing sleep, mood and tension within the body and mind. Each week, we will also deepen our practice of breath work and meditation, with continuous practice leading to significant shifts in wellbeing.
Winter is a cold, heavy, wet and windy time of year that naturally increases the water or ‘kapha’ element within us. This leads to ailments such as colds, heavy and blocked heads and noses, phlegm, mucus and fatigue. It is naturally a time to withdraw, reserve energy, stay cosy and toasty warm.
To prepare for it, keep illness at bay and feel your best, Ayurveda recommends a cleanse in between seasons (ritu sandi) followed by a change in diet, routines, and specific yoga and breathing techniques.
A traditional practice that is challenging and balancing all at the same time. Systematically develop your strength, flexibility, fitness, balance, concentration and build mental fortitude. With a regular practice you will experience the far reaching effect on all bodily functions, including better digestion, stronger immune system, balanced nervous system and equilibrium in the mind and emotions.
Leave your city life behind and rejuvenate on our long weekend yoga immersion retreat! This is a convenient way to recharge your batteries, soak up some pristine natural countryside, practice your yoga, eat nourishing vegetarian meals and enjoy the company of new friends.
