The Workshop: “Yoga is my Therapy” with Malin Barrling

Malin will guide you safely from one asana to the next, based on how to adjust to the different dosha (PDF) you might have. The different doshas needs to be addressed separately and exclusively.
You will learn how you easy can adjust your yoga practice after your dominant dosha, and this way you will gain more from the practice.
This is Yoga therapy at its best. And by learning the therapeutic essence of yoga asanas, feel the difference and learning how to adjust, you will have the best tool for your inner balance and also if you are a teacher, you can guide your students more safely.

The Workshop: «Energize Your life»

In this workshop you will be guided by two experts in this field – Janesh Vaidya and Malin Barrling – the authors of one of the best sold yoga books in Sweden:
Yoga is My Therapy.

The spine of the workshop is how to unblock the flow of our life-energy by correcting our body postures. During the day and night (24 hours), we humans are naturally staying in three positions – standing, sitting and lying. Because of our modern lifestyle, all these three postures become unnatural which leads to incorrect body functions and thus block the vital energy in our subtle body.

The core motive of this three-hour session is to train each participant to correct their body postures and help them stand, walk, sit and sleep in the natural positions, and thus extend the benefits of yoga by practicing this ancient wisdom 24 hours outside the yoga-mat – while sitting in their office, walking in the streets, and lying on their bed.

Remember, our beauty and attraction is not merely depending on the quality of our skin or hair, but our physical posture. Because of our comfortable lifestyle in these modern times, our muscles are getting weaker every year and our body shows the symptoms of old age faster, which reflects through our wrong body postures.

When we correct the posture, we can stay healthy and attractive by letting the free flow of our vital energies through our entire body and stay energetic in all seasons and ages in our life. This 24-hour natural yoga practice will help all systems in our body, so we can maintain a smooth function, especially of our digestive, circulatory and respiratory systems, which is the key to our optimal health.

Think about how you could live your entire life with the right posture and thus maintain your youthfulness and energy from morning till evening, Monday to Sunday, January to December and rest of your life.
Yes, it’s amazing! Isn’t it?

Lecture by Janesh Vaidya: «Food is my medicine«

Based on his book with the same name.
It is important to note that apart from us humans all other species in the world are using food as the only medicine to maintain their health. And they are gaining this wisdom directly from the nature and practicing all through their life, while we humans are trying to learn from the literature and struggling to practice inside our square rooms. If we can completely trust in our mother nature and treat with respect, the healing process will start inside and outside our skin.

To understand the use of food as the medicine ayurveda defines food as nature’s essence which is recognized by its six tastes:
sweet, sour, salt, pungent, bitter and astringent.
Whether it is a fruit or a vegetable, nut or a grain, the properties of each food item vary according to the dominating elements in it, which we can sense by its natural taste. When we take in a food with a particular taste, remember that its effect in our body is decided by the property of that food. 

Janesh says:
In my village I have never seen anyone using a recipe book in their kitchen, but their senses. That must be the reason every time the same food tastes different. The taste of the food is depending on not only the ingredients in it but also the feeling of the person who prepared it. My grandma often reminded people in the kitchen to cook with a loving attitude in a peaceful atmosphere, which I believe is the most important in the art of cooking.
