30 Jan '11, 12am
Apr 16-17 Yoga Under the Stars by Dev Kapil & Ayurvedic Foods Workshop
This special session will be conducted by yoga master Dev Kapil, who began his yogic journey at the age of three. It will begin with the Sun Salutation to warm up and energise the body and then gradually flow into the Moon Salutation, traditionally practiced at the end of the day to bring relaxation. The sequences of movements – or asanas – which make up these salutations represent a way inward, towards wisdom, creativity and inherent intelligence. Following the yoga session will be a talk and demonstration on Ayurvedic food. Founded in India more than 5,000 years ago, Ayurveda, which emphasises good health through diet, herbs and a balanced lifestyle, is believed to be one of the oldest healing sciences in the world. At this session, participants will be introduced to Ayurvedic food concepts, while getting to sample foods prepared in accordance to Ayurvedic principles.
