Our body is our sacred temple and should be honored and respected. Each body is different and has unique needs. When we're able to listen to our body it leads to the experience of being free of pain. When we learn to be sensitive to our body, yoga results in relaxation, elevated energy and joy.

Chinnamasta Stiles will share practices based upon the book “Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy” by Mukunda Stiles.
Ayurveda is a traditional art and science of healing and longevity. It encourages you to connect to the Source of Vitality within yourself. Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy is based upon the teachings of Krishnamacharya, the Grandfather of Yoga. Beautiful healing vinyasas for all doshas and specific pranayamas lead to experiencing vitality, joy and peace. Yoga focuses on rendering the mind peaceful and preparing it to receive the hidden wisdom teachings in the cave of the heart. When the teachings of Ayurveda and Yoga fall upon an open heart they transform into Wisdom and heal body, mind and heart. Ayurveda and Yoga melting into One are the best food for body, mind and soul. This will help you to thrive and lead a fulfilling, happy and healthy life.
Who: Open to all
Workshop fee: $225 (early bird) $250 (regular)
