We are delighted to join the team at New Energy Yoga, Winchester, Saturday 7th September 2019
with our Fall Workshop: INTERMITTENT FASTING + KRIYA FOR SELF CARE Workshop.
Intermittent fasting means the temporary, and voluntary limitation of food intake. It gives the digestive system time to heal and repair itself, as well as providing other long-term health benefits. It is the treatment par excellence for improving overall health and increasing energy.
INTERMITTENT FASTING + KRIYA FOR SELF CARE WORKSHOP
Kriya Prana Yoga: (Mind Body Cleanse practice)
We start with a Kriya Prana Yoga practice. So, be prepared to engage in a physical practice, with kriya techniques that promote good gut and metabolic health, and asanas to stimulate digestion & peristalsis, bioelectric network stimulation + lymphatic drainage.
TALK: INTERMITTENT FASTING 101
In our talk, we explore the practical steps of how fasting works, and its benefits, including constructing your own intermittent fasting schedule. And finally how to make safe and structured fasting part of your life.
INTERMEDIATE LEVEL PRANAYAMA FOR FASTING
Any sort of fasting diet should be balanced with a correct breathing practice, which ideally involves a relatively advanced practice of pranayama and meditation where the total amount of breathing (minute ventilation) is reduced.
MEDITATION FOR FASTING
Meditations go deeper while fasting. It is interesting to feel one’s mind settle more quickly when going in, like a switch turning on. When the body is empty, experiencing the higher chakras in meditative states is easy, and bringing about the sense of “no mind” that meditators and yogis are able to achieve with as much practice and stillness is also possible.
