We are very happy and honoured to announce that Sri Sudhir Tiwari is coming back to Amsterdam for a whole weekend of teachings. We are grateful for his precious time that he is willing to spend with us. Sri Sudhir Tiwari is dedicated to sharing his knowledge and expertise on traditional Pranayama in the Kaivalyadhama lineage (located in Lonavla in India) within our community.

This weekend course can be followed as a self-standing course for your own development, or as a Pre-Teacher Training for yoga teachers and dedicated practitioners who are considering to embark on a year long journey with Sri Sudhir Tiwari in 2020

This is an amazing opportunity to start your own dedicated Pranayama practice, to further deepen your experience and knowledge, to refine breath work skills and to enable you to introduce the foundation of Pranayama into your classes. Watch the video below to see how Sri Sudhir Tiwari teaches Kapalabhati, one of the 7 pranayama exercises taught in the Kaivalyadhama lineage. 

This course includes the yogic practices of asana, pranayama, chanting and meditation techniques, using traditional methods and guidelines from the Kaivalyadhama lineage. This 2-days workshop will also include pranic pulse taking and personal Pranayama practice regimen.

The pranayamic/pranic pulse will be taken prior to the morning pranayama practice or at the end of each day. At the end of the workshop, based on your pulse sheet, all participants will be recommended an individual Pranayama practice regimen. 

For participants who were recommended a practice at previous workshops with Sudhir or O.P. Tiwari, your progress will be checked and if needed the practice will be modified to suit the level of progress.

Personal Ayurvedic Consultation (optional)

Participants will have the possibility to book a personal Ayurvedic consultation with Sudhir. At the time of consultations, the Ayurvedic pulse will be taken and Ayurvedic and western herbs/remedies will be suggested based on Ayurvedic principles and on queries by the participants, as well as appropriate diet references. 

The consultations will address health and lifestyle issues and will last for approx. 20 minutes. The consultations will be scheduled on Friday 30 August. There is a limited number of places available, so advance booking will be required. We will send you booking information and location info via email before the workshop.

The cost for the personal ayurvedic consultation is a so called ‘Love Offer’ (translating into donation – suggested donation of €15-20 per consultation). Please bring your donation in cash in an envelope.
