Join us at a beautiful private home in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. We will begin our day at noon with an hour of relaxing yoga in a magnificent yurt by Michelle Mazur. After this we dive into the world of raw food cuisine. Its a hands on opportunity to learn techniques from one of the leaders in the vegan and raw food movement. There will be plenty of food to sample! Then its back to to the yurt where we end the day at 6pm with a 15 minute restorative yoga session with Michelle.
In Michelles’ words, “Sometimes in our busy lives we do all the necessary things we need to stay healthy and feel great. However, quite often the stresses of everyday living take over and effects our nervous system which effects our digestion, assimilation and elimination of food. Even if we eat the healthiest of foods the state of our mind can directly decide how we will respond to the glorious things we put in our mouth. Together we will explore how yoga can help. Taking basic principles from ayurvedic medicine (the science of life) along with some understanding of the three gunas which are the qualities of nature (Prakriti).
I will teach a set series of asanas for different conditions that may occur and upset the natural healthy order of things. Students will leave this retreat with a list of asanas to do on their own for different situations that may arise. I will also teach different restoratives every day to culminate the work in asana and cooking to relax the physical body and thinking mind. ”
