10.00-12.30 Yoga for Horse Riders - Nicole Gibbard

Sessions are suitable for all participants, pleasure or advanced horse riders, or even those who have never ridden a horse before. A 30 minute briefing on the benefits of combining yoga and horse riding and a 30 minute question and answer session will accompany the 90 minute yoga practice to experience the basic methods of meditation, breathing and the physical practice – creating awareness, developing sensitivity, and connection of the riders body and mind, leading to the perfect ”Union” with the Horse.

12.30-13.30 Ayurvedic Lunch


13.30–15.30 Ayuvedic/Macrobiotic Nutrition - Sophia Araujo

A reconnection to Nature  via a 5 Element approach that works through postures, breath work, meditations and the nature of our diet, illustrating how the practices of yoga become more important when we are living in daily life or “off the mat”. Drawing from Ayurvedic and Macrobiotic principles, we see how food is much more than just nutrients. Food is energy! In order to achieve great energy we need to eat foods that are not only rich in nutrients but also leave us feeling light, satisfied and with a clear mind. We will explore the principles and practical applications of the ancient science of Ayurveda and the more contemporary ideas of Macrobiotics. Their foundation and relationship - Food as Medicine - Food as Energy - Seasonal Eating & Cooking and Building and Conserving Immunity

16.00-18.00 Elemental Yoga Class - Jai Garuda

Elemental yoga utilizes many styles of contemporary Yoga asana, such as Vinyasa, Restorative and Partner Yoga, retaining key teachings of alignment from BKS Iyengar and the core principles from Patanjali. The wisdom of natural healing reminds us that balance and imbalance are ever changing. This system teaches a form of deep listening, grounded in a consultation process that allows us to observe how the Elemental forces of Nature are moving within each of us, and to directly prescribe, from all forms of yoga, practices which restore inappropriate patterns to a state of natural rhythm and flow.
