This year deepen your yoga practice with 3 separate practical yoga immersions with specific sequences and poses that will offer balance to your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual being.
These immersions will be hosted by 2 of our Ayurvedic Practitioners and AyurYoga specialists – Nishita Shah & Dave Yoss. In each of these live and recorded sessions you will be introduced to yoga from an Ayurvedic perspective, as a practice that can offer great benefits to our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual selves. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions with Vasant Lad, Ayurvedic visionary, and gain an understanding to the more subtle side of these asana.
These sessions will also offer you the opportunity to develop a daily yoga routine in community with others while being educated, guided, and supported by Nishita and Dave.
Come to a deeper understanding of what your daily yoga routine can offer you by diving into each of these immersions
THREE IMMERSIONS: YOGA TO UNLOCK THE SUN, MOON AND YOUR DOSHA
HARNESSING THE SUN: MORNING SALUTATION YOGA IMMERSION
Surya Namaskar is probably the most widespread and well-known yogic practice in the world. Moving through this sequence on a daily basis can offer great benefits for our physical and emotional wellness while lending support to us in our wider yoga practice and daily life.
The focus of this immersion is to come into a deeper understanding of this sequence – building stamina and strength in the asana themselves while growing comfortable practicing Surya Namaskar as a regular routine.
CHANNELING THE MOON: EVENING SALUTATION YOGA IMMERSION
The lesser known of the salutation flows, the Chandra (Moon) Namaskar (Salutation) is designed to bring us into harmony with this heavenly body that watches over all beings on this planet as we rest and fall into the subtle realm of dreams.
From the Ayurvedic perspective, we will look at Chandra Namaskar in relation to harmony of self and how this sequence can help to balance ourselves – shifting our emotional and mental states so we can get the most from our night of rest.
BALANCED BEING: DOSHA FOCUSED YOGA IMMERSION
This immersion will give you deep insight into what makes-up a balanced practice – working through sequences and poses while identifying the effects they have on the different mind-body types (doshas). As we come to understand our own mind-body type or constitution and identify our imbalances, we will learn how our yoga practice can support us in establishing our balance again – helping to heal us and live the best version of ourselves!
