Enjoying the beautiful change of seasons without that regular cold
and runny nose that we tend to catch every autumn and spring.
Wouldn’t that be great?

What is immunity and how is it formed from the Ayurveda perspective? How can you support it by working on all levels – from the cycles of your daily activities, hygiene, the quality of the food you eat to the thoughts you think?

In the lecture we will explore simple and practical daily steps how to enhance your vitality and resistance to diseases:

@ The optimum daily rhythm of waking up, exercising and sleeping
@ The invisible but potent power of food that is not discussed in the West; the basic principles of an immunity nourishing meal
@ The functions of the physical and subtle channels in the body; why it’s important to keep them clean
@ Yoga asanas and breathing for vibrant health
@ Simple recipes with easily available kitchen herbs to support the immunity every day

COSTS: 20 euro. 17,50 euro for members of Léyoga. A cup of tea and a printed reader is included.

IT’S COMING! The second workshop of THAI MASSAGE is on its way. One-hour long rejuvenating sequence of more than 30 techniques of this unique form of massage is what you will learn during this workshop. Taking time for yourself. Connecting with your breath. Enjoying your body in movement.

THAI MASSAGE WORKSHOP
Sunday, 8 March, 2020

Thai massage or “yoga for lazy people” is a form of healing. It is a harmonious flow of movements and touch synchronized with your breath and the breath of your partner. A moving meditation.

This form of massage is an ancient healing system and a highly relaxing experience; it opens the blocked energy channels and renews the energy flow in the body. When energy flows freely again, headaches, anxiety, joint and muscle strain and pain decrease, your sleep is deeper and the mind calmer. After Thai massage, higher energy levels are experienced by both, the giver and receiver. During the massage fingers, palms, elbows, feet and the body biomechanics are used.

I have included a few new techniques for those lovely people who are returning for more.

The early bird rate is just round the corner. See you on 8 March!

Costs

The full day workshop is 75 euros per person or 135 euros per couple including printed materials, tea and small snacks.
Special early bird rate of 60 euros for all subscriptions before 1 February!

For this training we will work in pairs. If you join alone you will be paired up with a buddy before the training.

THAI MASSAGE, originally coming from the wisdom of the Buddhist monks, just like Ayurveda, has its roots in India. Once in a while I offer Thai massage workshops that beautifully complement Ayurveda treatments that are the main focus of my practice.

Thai massage is an ancient healing system and a highly relaxing experience. It opens the blocked energy channels and renews the energy flow in the body.

After Thai massage, higher energy levels are experienced by both, the giver and receiver. During the massage fingers, palms, elbows, feet and the body biomechanics are used. The leading principle of the workshop is safety. No dangerous postures will be practiced.

In this workshop you will learn more than 40 different techniques. It is enough to perform a full-body 1- hour long safe and deeply relaxing Thai massage session at home on your partner/family member.

AUTUMN. It’s a time of coming back to oneself, reaping the harvest and offering it to others and yourself. Collecting, recollecting and reflecting. All that is possible in peace, when the gentle voice of the heart becomes heard.

The combination of the DHARA MASSAGE and HEART BATHING (Heart Dhara) with rose etherical oil that I offer this autumn will help your mind to calm down and collect yourself for a new active period.

I will start with the one hour long full body massage. It will give you the sensation of wholeness increasing your awareness of your physical body.

The massage is followed by Heart Bathing. It lasts around 20 minutes and lets your mind and sensations totally blend with your heart – the rhythm of pouring warm milk on your heart area, the soothing aroma of rose etherical oil, soft music and not needing to do anything brings a sense of total calm and oneness with your mind and body. Peace. The time to let your heart speak.

I offer the combination of these two treatments for a special autumn price with 15% discount for € 68,-.
