We begin with a 90 minute yoga workshop during which Meeta will concentrate our efforts into the muscle groups targeted by the current event. Each yogi will receive guidance appropriate to his/her own level of practise.
When the yoga is done, volunteers lend a hand to set up the studio for the social section whilst Meeta returns to her kitchen to put her finishing touches to the food. The rest of the evening is given over to dinner, banter, and friendly chat. Lovely!
Let's build our arms and open up our shoulders!
In this workshop we will focus on gentle shoulder opening poses and transitions, emphasizing breath to reduce stress and tension, and fundamental principles of alignment. We will use props to support posture and move slowly and mindfully.
Perfect for people who want to open their shoulders and build strength in their arms, but also for the experienced yogi looking to complement a strong practice with a deeper release and subtle alignment.
Meeta will teach you how to breath mindfully to reduce stress levels, to create better body awareness for a healthier body, and help you to enhance your self-confidence in each pose. You are always encouraged to go at your own pace.
After the workshop Meeta will serve Kitchree with salad and pappadums. Meeta highly recommends this! In Ayurveda, kitchree is like the mother of all dishes. The lentils and rice come together to make a complete protein and the veggies (although not a traditional addition to kitchree) provide vitamins and minerals. This dish also includes spices detox your body.
A kitchree cleanse is common in Ayurveda to cleanse the stomach and digestive system and to help nourish, replenish and reset your body during seasonal changes. Basically what I'm saying is all you really need in life to survive are some lentils, a bit of rice, a little veg, and some spices and you will be ALL GOOD!
Venue: 23 Pentire Avenue Time: 6:00 to 7:30pm
Enhance your creativity and self-love!
For this workshop our goal is to increase awareness of our inner self, to de-stress and to still the fluctuations of our minds. We will be holding our postures passively for 2 to 5 minutes which will help strengthen our muscles, ligaments, and fascial tissues whilst also increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility.
We will practise meditative asanas to release blockage, create awareness and an provide an opportunity to offload long-held negative energy - thus bringing restoration and balance, leaving each one of us deeply relaxed within our own body.
As each posture is held longer we will be using some props such as blocks and bolsters to support us.

Spicy vegetarian burritos stuffed with red kidney beans and baked in a hot Cajun flavoured tomato sauce, served with Meeta’s special salad.
Kidney beans are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fibre, as are most other beans.
PLEASE if you are vegan let Meeta know so she can prepare your burritos using vegan cheese along with her own.
