-A story by Daniel Plackett.
It might be your goal to one day visit an Ashram in India for a period of intensive Yoga, and Yoga Diet.
However with the everyday demands of family, and work, this goal my seem very far off. There is another solution. In the spirit of DIN! – Do It Now!, if you cannot get to the Ashram , bring the Ashram to you.
This is exactly what Yoga Life Cyprus did and last week a second Yoga Retreat was completed at my home in the beautiful area of Delikipos surrounded by forest and hills. Under the supervision and teaching of Anadhi Korina Kontaxaki two days of yoga, yoga philosophy and yogic diet were strictly followed.
Yogic Diet is completely plant based, and also is based where ever possible on seasonal foods and foods sourced from the local area. Pulses, Grains, and Nuts are activated (soaked for a few houses in water) so all the active energy of the plants are released as they sprout. Food is always eaten freshly prepared, with no preservatives, additives or sugars added.
