Consultations with Dr Rajvinder Kaur – Saturday 30th March

WHAT HAPPENS AT AN AYURVEDIC CONSULATION
An initial Ayurveda consultation begins with a Personal Health Evaluation,. This takes about 60 minutes, and enables the practitioner to assess your health requirements. The practitioner will give personal advice on a range of methods for improving your health and on natural measures to rectify any underlying imbalances that are identified.
These may include:
Diet – it is very important to eat food that is right for you, producing balance and comfort
Daily routine – minor changes can sometimes greatly improve your well-being
Life-style – learn what can strengthen your health and what to avoid
Food supplements – supplement the body’s intelligence with the intelligence of nature encapsulated in sophisticated traditional herbal/mineral formulae.
Natural Therapies – abhyanga, shirodhara, nasya to name but a few.

Ayurveda consultation offers you the chance to learn more about the nature of your mind/body and how to promote good health and prevent disease. Consultations include pulse diagnosis to determine specific imbalances, recommendations for diet, digestion, herbal food supplements, exercise, daily and seasonal routines and general guidelines for good health based on your individual physiology.

Dr Rajvinder Kaur (BAMS) attained her Bachelor Degree in Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery from “Shri Krishna Government Ayurvedic College” in the state of Haryana in India.

Kundalini Yoga with Mary Whelan

Dates: Saturday April 13th

Time: 2-5pm

Kundalini yoga is an inner yoga, it is the yoga of awareness and awakening.  Through a set of physical exercises (kriya), breath-work (pranayam), meditation, mantra and relaxation you come to a place of stillness (shuniya).  In this place you meet your true self and the façade of who you are in everyday life – the critical, competitive, I am this or that starts to shed.   The regular practice of Kundalini Yoga moves you to live from this divine place.  It is a life-changing journey that will enable you to become more present, to live your life in a much deeper, soulful way without effort or thought.  It can fine-tune your awareness of yourself and the subtle energies that revolve around your relationship with others and your environment.   It will enable you to trust your own inner wisdom.

Mary will be conducting a series of workshops where, through specific kriya, breathwork and mantra you will tap into your own innate ability to manifest subtle yet profound miracles of transformation in your everyday life.

Cost: 35 euro
