Workshop “2 week Detox Challenge”
“Interesting to note how the patterning of the mind really changes along with the detox process. It is bringing me much clarity”
Emotional, mental and physical stress, environmental pollution, inappropriate food (including nicotine, alcohol and coffee) and just plain rushing around – all take their toll on our body’s metabolism. Improper diet, stress, overeating, sedentary lifestyle, illness, and poor health habits typically cause toxicity overload in general. When we can’t completely digest our food, experiences, and emotions, toxic residue gets stored in our bodily tissue, creating imbalances, ultimately leading to disease.
Detoxification is one of the body’s most basic automatic functions of eliminating and neutralizing toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph and epidermis.
During the course of the 2 week at-home Ayurvedic detox program, you will be introduced with a cooking demo as well as a list of recommended diet, herbs, oils, lifestyle alternatives to implement into your everyday life.
If you currently experience symptoms such as unexplained fatigue, sluggish elimination, irritated skin, allergies or low-grade infections; bags under the eyes; a distended stomach even if the rest of your body is thin; menstrual difficulties; or mental confusion, you will notice tremendous benefit from detoxification.
The intention for 2 Week Detox Challenge is to motivate you to undertake full detox @ home and stay on track in a friendly, supportive and caring environment, alongside like-minded individuals. It provides a platform to share your own unique experiences whereby both first-timers and repeat participants can receive encouragement and motivation with all that the challenge has to offer.

Workshop “Ayurveda and Yoga”
Both Yoga and Ayurveda are deeply rooted in ancient Vedic tradition. Ayurveda is a science for healing the body and mind. In the same way, Yoga also requires a well-functioning body and mind for self-realization. Both are far from typical physical exercise or body healing systems, both holistic, for body, mind and soul; both work from physical health and well-being to mental, emotional and higher consciousness for spiritual well-being and self-realization.
In Yoga you start with physical postures and ethical disciplines of eight limbs of yoga, breath control, affirmations, visualizations, prayers and mantras; and meditation. Ayurveda is considered most holistic health system in the world and covers all aspects of health and well-being. This includes physical, mental, emotional and Spiritual well-being using diet, exercise, lifestyle, yoga, meditation, pranayama and healing colours and sounds.
Whether used for improving physical health or self-realization purposes, both are often regarded as incredibly well developed and complimentary sciences. Those interested in one would often find themselves benefiting from the knowledge gained when used in combination.
In this one day workshop, learn how the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda can support you in advancing your yoga practices for both yourself as well as your students.
Workshop “Wellness with Ayurveda”
Growing into your future with health and grace and beauty doesn’t have to take all your time. It rather requires a dedication to caring for yourself as if you were rare and precious, which you are…
Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. “…a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” – The World Health Organization.
In Ayurveda, health is defined as an active state of wellness–a state in which you truly live, not merely exist. This active state of wellness, according to the ancient texts of Ayurveda, extends beyond the physical body to the mind, heart, senses and spirit. In this “zone,” you experience physical vitality, mental alertness, emotional bliss, sensual balance and spiritual awareness, not just for a fleeting time, but day after day, year after year.

Workshop “Creating a Life worth Living”

According to Ayurveda, we exist at the levels of – Body, Mind, Senses and the Soul.
Invariably, clients who have been coming to us for some time, reach a place where we are talking a lot more about the mind and emotions than just their body and its ailments.

Make it happen! With a fresh perspective. Chart your own direction and move on.
The effectiveness of Ayurveda is based on its holistic approach. In its assessment of a person’s health, Ayurveda considers not only the physical aspects, but also its interconnectedness with environmental, emotional, mental and spiritual factors that influence our well-being.
Ayurveda uses three Doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha), or governing principles of the body, to describe a person’s mind-body type as well as any imbalances that he or she is experiencing. Recommendations to correct any imbalances are tailored to the unique mind-body type of each individual, and as these imbalances improve over time, recommendations may need to change too.

One of the fundamental concepts of Ayurveda is that we exist at the levels of body, mind, senses and the soul. This 40,000 years old medical system has provided knowledge about the science of “psycho-neuro-immuno-endocrinology”: the biological basis of mind–body physiology and pathophysiology which is now at the cutting edge of modern medicine. The entire field of psycho-neuroimmuno-endocrinology or mind/body medicine is encapsulated in a concept called the Antahkarana or inner instrument in Ayurveda.
In medicine, feelings such as sadness, listlessness, lack of motivation, despair and discouragement are not really taken as disease, but they do affect one’s blood and brain chemistry and distracts one from living life to their utmost potential. In addition, they also have the ability to affect the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of our relationships.
The Business Case for Emotional Intelligence
- An analysis of more than 300 top-level executives from fifteen global companies showed that six emotional competencies distinguished stars from the average: Influence, Team Leadership, Organizational Awareness, Self-Confidence, Achievement Drive, and Leadership
- Research by the Center for Creative Leadership has found that the primary causes of derailment in executives involve deficits in emotional competence. The three primary ones are difficulty in handling change, not being able to work well in a team, and poor interpersonal relations.
If it is so important in personal and professional life, it may be worth learning how to become more “emotionally intelligent”.
