About the Retreat
Practice leads to experience and that experience leads back to practice. In this retreat we will practice asanas, pranayama and meditational techniques with complete mindfulness based on the definition and techniques outlined thousands of years ago in authoritative yogic texts. We will also discuss the origins and the chronology of yogic practices and how they apply to our everyday life, in addition to practical ayurveda.
About the Teacher
Sudhir Tiwari was brought up in a yogic environment in Lonavla, India. Sudhir grew up around the influence of masters at one of the oldest yoga institutes known as Kaivalyadhama. He has learnt Yoga and Ayurveda from his teacher Swami Digambarji and his Father Shri Om Prakash Tiwari, receiving an advanced diploma from Kaivalyadhama Yoga Institute in (1981).
A rare and authentic yoga practice that was specialized there was the art of yoga breathing known as Pranayama. This uses about 10 different breathing techniques that requires guidiance from an experienced teacher. This allows students and teachers to achieve a spiritual well being and a therapeutic effect for health. It is the most calming practice of yoga and has been studied to show to relieve anxiety, blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes by the Kaivalyadhama Institute. This has been researched by Dean Ornish and other Institutes affiliated to the government of India.
