THE LECTURES

1. Meditation
A path towards stress free life
Practising asanas give us an immediate feeling of physical well-being, meditation on the other hand is seen as a more daunting discipline, because it requires to find the stillness within us.
Symptoms of stress can be clearly diagnosed, yet there does not seem to be a widely accepted medical solution for them. There are, however, various ways of trying to deal with stress. Learning how to slow our busy mind down through the art of relaxation is one effective way. The health benefits of meditation reside in its power to train our mind and restore physical balance and inner peace. Improved immune system, greater ability to calm down at will, feeling more present and focused are few of the many acknowledged benefits of meditation.
This lecture introduces you to some practical methods to help you unwind and reduce the effects of stress and day-today tensions.
‘Stretch’ your stress away with asanas, ‘breathe’ your stress away with pranayama…and ‘relax’ your stress away with meditation!

2. Yoga and Chakras
What are ‘Chakras’ and how to awaken them through the practice of specific Yoga asanas.
The word ‘Chakra ‘comes from the Indian Sanskrit word that translates as ‘wheel’ – a reference to the principle vortices spinning like wheels aligned with the spine.
There are 7 well known Chakras coming from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. Each Chakra or energy centre plays a role both at the physical and emotional level. Should one of them be blocked and the whole body/mind balance can be put in turmoil.
Knowing how the Chakras can affect your physical and emotional well-being and learning how to release any blocked energy can help harmonize your whole being.
This lecture introduces you to the 7 main Chakras and their functions whilst exploring how specific Yoga Asanas work to ensure that the radiant energies flow freely through your body.

3. Yoga and Ayurveda
Matching asanas to your Ayurvedic constitution:
Most of us tend to think of Ayurveda as a way of nurturing our body and mind through the use of diet and massage. Whilst those methods are indeed most important they can greatly benefit physical and emotional health when combined with appropriate Yoga asanas (postures); With the understanding that everyone has an unique physio-psychological constitution and that one asana might not suit all, this lecture introduces you to the concept of Vatta; Pitta and Kapha and gets you to explore your own Ayurvedic constitution to find out which asana suits you best.

4. Wine Tasting
Introduction to the principles of wine tasting, and food and wine pairing

Who said that Yoga and Wine were incompatible subjects of interest? Certainly not me!
My passion for anything related to the world of wine has always remained genuine since I joined the Bordeaux wine trade over a decade ago. I have now been working for a number of years for a respected Wine Merchant in London. Whilst enjoying a rewarding career as a wine buyer, my thirst for knowledge led me to enrol in the Master of Wines programme –considered by the trade as the highest wine qualification- I am also a certified wine educator.
My enthusiasm for the subject should make anyone want to reach for a glass and enjoy the genius in it… with moderation of course!
This lecture introduces you to the principle of wine tasting through a fun blind tasting experience where you learn what to expect from some well-known grape varieties. Invaluable information will be shared on the subject of food and wine pairing. A lecture to leave you with solid knowledge and confidence for when you next buy from a shop and/or order in a restaurant.
