Ever wondered what your Ayurvedic body type (Dosha) is and how identifying it can help you live a happier and healthier life? Find out at this Yoga and Ayurvedic Cooking Workshop to be taught by Dr Khushdil Chokshi.
Practitioners of all levels and traditions are invited to Ashtanga Master Nicky Knoff’s workshops in October.
Nicky’s knowledge is distilled over 40 years of intense study and represents a bridge between Iyengar and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga – intelligent, anatomical alignment combined with linking internal energetic principles.
Nicky’s teaching focuses on showing students how to look, listen and feel by honouring their ‘inner wisdom’.
The ancient practice of Ayurveda is typically translated as the ‘science of life ‘ or ‘knowledge’ and was once inseparable from yoga asana practice. Authentic Indian yoga masters were commonly also ayurvedic practitioners and l have a vivid memory of Pattabhi Jois sitting down with me on the sweat soaked floor of the old Shala in Mysore, prescribing an ayurvedic oil for my troubled right knee.
The smell of that concoction of herbs was so unique that just the thought of it takes me back to those special times and it was on one of those trips that I first met Kumar. He still resides a few doors down from the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute in Mysore to this day, and we are so pleased he will be giving a workshop on Ayurveda at our Shala this weekend.
