Healthy Living & Yoga - An Education in Diet & Lifestyle Choices
September 17 - 24, 2011
With Claudia Jones
About the Retreat
The Healthy Living & Yoga retreat shows you how you can transform your health and wellbeing through the foods you eat, the products you use and the lifestyle choices you make.
During this week we will explore the impact of our choices not just on ourselves but on the environment too.
We will explore the food and nutrition choices we make, the products we use, their impact on our health and the healthy alternatives available.
To live yoga is to make appropriate choices that do not harm ourselves or others; through the week we will consider the Yamas and Niyamas, the foundations of Yoga practice and how we can apply these principles to our day to day lives to improve our health and well being.
Mornings will incorporate yoga asana, pranayama and meditation practices.
Afternoons will offer inspirational talks on healthy diet and lifestyle, yoga philosophy, Q&A and restorative yoga asana and breathwork.
Yoga classes include:
- Guided asana practice.
- Ashtanga Yoga Mysore style will be available for those with an established self-practice
- Restorative yoga
- Breathwork, pranayama and meditation
