Quantum Yoga

LEAPING SALMON

kapha-regulating

This highly stimulating and invigorating sequence is designed to regulate kapha, the Ayurvedic dosha (body-mind constitution) elementally defined as earth and water. The image of the powerful salmon leaping in the air, as it swims upstream is the ultimate inspiration for a kapha-regulating practice, which is all about cultivating dynamic movement and the joy and exhilaration that comes with it.

Workshop Format

  • 20 min: Brief Definition of Quantum Yoga and Exposition of its systematic application and principles. Recognising and Dealing with Kapha Imbalance.
