Yoga Detox Immersion with Patrick & Krishnataki
26th April – 2nd May 2020
This 7-day immersion will lead us through an intense cleansing and purification process. Combining the morning yoga asana flow with an afternoon Taoist practice, we will enjoy both physical, emotional and spiritual release and openings. As well as asana, pranayama, meditation, and bhakti we will also follow a holistic yogic-life approach with the food – being vegan and with plenty of juices. Choosing the path of yoga is not about bending your body into different positions, it is about a life choice for optimum health and positivity.
Each day will offer 7 hours of practice
Morning: 3 hours of yoga asana flow & meditation
Afternoon: 1.5 hours pranayama and Taoist exercises for longevity
1.5 hours nutrition & cooking class alternating with Thai massage workshop
Evening: Chantings & Satsang & meditation
Born in Germany, raised in California, Patrick found his spiritual home on Second Avenue at the Jivamukti Yoga Center in the New York East Village in 1996. He moved to NYC to take the Teacher Training and to spend more time with his teachers Sharon Gannon and David Life. About fifteen years ago he brought the Jivamukti Yoga Method to Europe and since then Patrick has been the root of a huge and constantly growing Satsang all over Europe. In 2014 he left Jivamukti and now he is using his knowledge to promote what really matters in the life of a Yogi: Devotion to God and the importance of Ethical Responsibility.
Krishnataki, originally from Greece, has been teaching Thai Yoga massage, Yoga and Qi Gong since 1998, having lived and studied in Thailand and India. He is a Senior Massage Teacher of the Sunshine Network, having trained with Thai Massage masters Pichet Boonthume, Chayuth Priyasith and Asokananda.
He is passionate about organic farming, Chinese Medicine, cooking and nutrition, and incorporates aspects of Yoga, Meditation and Qi Gong into all his courses. His base is at Sunshine House, however he often travels abroad to teach and also study. He is renown for his unique, spontaneous and passionate way of teaching as well as his generous spirit and open heart.
When he is not teaching, he is with his three beautiful children or soaking in hot spring waters.
