Iyengar Yoga and Ayurveda with Diego Baldi

June 16 @ 4:00 pm - June 18 @ 12:00 pm

Each of the Yoga Workshops will take an experiential approach for the practitioner to understand the qualities of Elements that form the Doshas, the function of the Doshas in the balance of the bodily systems.

These practical workshop’s will relate specifically to understanding the Doshas and their place in the body. The asana sequence will specifically work on stimulating and balancing the particular Doshas in the body.

Friday 16th June | 4-7pm Restorative Inversions and Pranayama |

Understand the essential use of Yoga props to find a still and subtle understanding of the classic asanas. Learn intelligent sequencing in your restorative practice to bring about a profound change to the inner workings of your practice.

In the practice we will explore standing forward bends to prepare for the main focus of restorative inversions and pranayama. With the full support of various props one can easily sustain long holds in theses asanas. Feel the therapeutic effect of the restorative practice on both the physical and subtle systems of the body, including the glandular and nervous systems.

Understanding the Doshas will give us a practical means to find our balance and to live in harmony with Nature.
