Indian Satsang – A Celebration of Light
Saturday 8th October 2016. 6:15pm – 9:30pm
Following the ‘peaceful’, ‘fun’ and ‘informative’ Indian Summer Satsang in June 2016, Renewed You Yoga and Solace are proud to host a second Indian Satsang in Southport on Saturday 8th October 2016. Join us for a 75 minute Akhanda Hatha yoga class and a traditional Indian Vegetarian Thali for supper with Satsang to celebrate the Festival of Light.
A healthy lifestyle comes from more than just physical exercise but from a healthy and balanced diet. Liz was taught by her Guru, Yogrishi Vishvketu, that Yoga begins in the kitchen! Yoga is a science and a way of living your life – to find balance and peace in your body, mind and soul. Join us for a traditional Hatha yoga class as taught in the foothills of the Himalayas followed by a healthy, nutritious and simply delicious vegetarian Indian Thali.
Our Indian Satsang will begin at 6:15pm on Saturday 8th October 2016 with Registration. Yoga will commence at 6:30pm until 7:45pm. Dinner will be served at 8pm until 9:30pm.
Yoga is inclusive. This class is suitable for all levels, all ages, men and women, and all body types. Those new to yoga and those who wish to deepen their practice are welcome. This will be a small intimate class of up to 10 people only.
Traditional yoga focuses on balancing asanas (the physical postures), pranayama (breathing practices), mantra, meditation, and discussion of yogic philosophy and lifestyle. All equipment will be provided. Please wear comfortable loose clothing. Light colours are encouraged.
Further details of Liz’s Yoga classes can be found here.
Indian Seasonal Supper
A Thali is a traditional Indian meal made up of a selection of dishes. All food is vegetarian and will include two lightly spiced seasonal vegetarian curries, dhall, chapatti/paratha and rice. Supper will be accompanied with a lassi (traditional yogurt drink) and an optional glass of prosecco. Indian tea and sweet treats to end.
If you have any allergies or intolerances, then please discuss this with us before booking your place. Vegan options can be easily provided.
Satsang is a tradition in India where students sit together with a teacher to discuss yogic philosophy and lifestyle. This is an opportunity to learn more about food, yoga, the transformative and symbolic power of fire and the Festival of Light, and share views and experiences. You will have the opportunity to submit questions for dinner table discussion before the event!
This event is £45 with a £25 deposit required to secure your place. Deposits can be paid via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Liz for alternative methods of payment.
Only 10 spaces are available.
Mayuri will again be opening her beautiful home near Hesketh Park to host this event. Details will be provided upon booking your place.
It is our pleasure to host this event and share this experience with our guests. We were simply delighted to hear that our previous guests enjoyed themselves back in June 2016 and we look forward to offering you the same loving, relaxing and stimulating experience!
