YOGA CLASSES, PUBLIC and PRIVATE and AYURVEDA LIFESTYLE CONSULTATIONS
I teach yoga in the tradition of TKV Desikachar. His illustrious father, Sri T. Krishnamacharya, helped thousands of people by customising a personal yoga practice for each of them. He was also the guru of countless yoga teachers including BKS Iyengar and K Pattabhi Jois. When I was wondering which type of yoga to study it was clear that I should go to the source. I went to India and have been continuing my study in Australia with TKV Desikachar or his family or teachers when they come here.
You will benefit most from a one-to-one personal session with me where we develop a short yoga practice that you
do at home everyday. You then return every 4-6 weeks for revision and extension.
I teach yoga classes, run ayurveda/yoga retreats and public talks and have a yoga audio cassette set which presents four 15 minute practices, the price of which is $40 plus postage.
My ayurveda teacher is Dr Rajen Cooppan, student of Dr Sunil Joshi. Ayurveda is the knowledge of life and what supports a long, healthy one where you can make your contribution to humanity without wearing yourself out. It comprises diet and lifestyle recommendations based on your individual constitution and any imbalances you are experiencing. It also offers a range of herbal and kitchen chemistry, practical cleansing techniques. A 1 1/2 hour consultation will cost $60. Thereafter some of the feedback and fine-tuning can be done by telephone.
I have compiled a "Treasury of Ayurveda Recommendations" that gives an overview with instructions of lifestyle and diet. The cost is $15 plus postage. If you have an email address you can receive the contents page for free. Also available is Dr Cooppan's little gem of a book, "Ancient Secrets for Modern Health", $10 plus postage.
Yoga and Ayurveda are the two legs of a balanced life. May you enjoy yours!
