Instructor on this trip is Deepa Moodgal:"As my mind, body, spirit interest developed I became intrigued by natural and alternative healing and medicine. Over the years I have studied The Art of Reflexology, Authentic Indian Head Massage, Ayurvedic Yoga Massage, Seated Accupressure Massage and am also a Reiki practitioner. My yoga training took me back to my ancient roots in South India where I studied under the guidance of some of the most influential yoga teachers. The study of yoga continues to form a major part of my Sadhana (practice) and my life to me there is no seperation. A famous yogi Krishnamacharya once said 'Breath is central to yoga because it is central to life......... and yoga is life' Great master yogis and yogini contiune to inspire me through my yoga journey, as do my friends and my beautiful ball of prana my son dhruv, who inspires me everyday." Deepa Moodgal You stay at an eco-resort, where all food is locally produced and waste is recycled. Power comes from solar panels and windmills. The resort has composting toilets and the staff are from the local community, Kartong. Yoga is also an environmentally friendly activity where the body is the instrument. It is about to take care of yourself, in soul and mind..
