Acu-Yoga is the synergistic approach of combining the two ancient practices Yoga and Acupressure potent point stimulation to achieve a powerful routine. It is dynamic and harmonious. In this class, we will practice the art of Acu-Yoga integrated with fast paced Sun Salutations which will increase in difficulty steadily over 12 week sessions. Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar) is a powerful sequence of 12 poses which combines breathing, posture and holds for opening the shoulder, chest, pelvis and heart. The awareness of acupressure potent point and scientific breathing will be integrated within the sequence. The class will conclude with 20 min of full body awareness, mindfulness and meditation. As part of diet, we will discuss and spend a part of the last two Saturday sessions on hands-on fermentation of seasonal and regional vegetables and making Kefir from home cultured Kefir grains, which is a potent probiotic for the gut micro flora.
