The Superpowers of a plantbased Yoga Practice

Sat 22nd Sep 2018

Teacher: Stewart Gilchrist It's no coincidence that Yoga & Veganism have seen a big surge in recent years, for they both offer practitioners the chance to: A) retain / reclaim some control over their bodies, minds, and thus lives, and B) affirm positive choices on a regular / daily basis. So combining the two can be super-powerful. The quintessential Yogic diet is seen as vegetarian - probably because of India's vegetarian tradition. And yet we're now discovering that a fully plant-based diet can be optimal on many levels - not least for ourselves, in terms of physical fitness, health, and wellbeing (physical, mental & spiritual). But also in terms of 'treading lightly' on this planet; safeguarding animals and wildlife, conserving resources, and protecting the environment. Facebook event page

Teacher: Stewart Gilchrist

Back to Basics workshop is for all levels. This workshop brings the yogini back to basics which we should all do so that the foundations of our practice are always strong and stable.

If vinyasa hatha yoga is like climbing a ladder then the first rungs are surya namaskar A and B and all their components. Then one starts the climb up and up one step at a time!! However, modern postural yogis are in a hurry to climb up and in doing so miss out steps or even fall!! It is therefore imperative to make sure that one progresses gradually and correctly.
