The Superpowers of a Plantbased Yoga Practice

An afternoon of TED-style talks with leading Yoga Teachers & Speakers

DATE: Saturday 22nd Sept 2018 - 2.30-5.00pm

VENUE: Karamel, 4 Coburg Road, London N22 6UJ

TICKETS: £10.00

Aimed at Yoga practitioners and teachers, and exploring the life and performance-enhancing effects of a plant-based diet, this event looks at the synergy between Yoga and veganism, and the benefits of combining these two practices.

Keynote Speaker Stewart Gilchrist - a self-proclaimed "spiritual anarchist" - is one of London's most popular and charismatic Yoga Teachers, whose clients have included Woody Harrelson, and Kate Moss. His TEDX talk on Breathing at the London Business School has had over 170,000 views.

It's no coincidence that Yoga & Veganism have seen a big surge in recent years, for they both offer practitioners the chance to: a) retain / regain some control over their bodies, minds, and thus their lives, and b) affirm positive choices on a regular / daily basis. So combining the two can be superpowerful.

The quintessential Yogic diet is seen as vegetarian - probably because of India's vegetarian tradition. Yet we are now discovering that a fully plant-based diet can be optimal on many levels - not least for ourselves, in terms of fitness, health, and well-being (physical, mental & spiritual). But also in terms of caring for this planet and each other - by safeguarding animals and wildlife, conserving resources, and protecting the environment. 

This is why so many contemporary Yoga teachers and students practice veganism in conjuncton with Yoga, and encourage other Yogis to try it.

We've gathered some of the leaders in this field to share their stories and expereinces, and we can promise lots of laughs - Stewart Gilchrist in particular, is renowned for his humour.

Other speakers include Louise Wallis (Yoga Teacher & founder of World Vegan Day), Jonathan Leighton (Authoor of The Battle for Compassion: Ethics in an Apathetic Universe), and Adam Biddle (Yoga Teacher & Social Media expert).

The venue, Karamel, is a Time Out award-winning arts venue and restaurant specialising in vegan food and drink.

Yin Yoga is an increasingly popular style of Yoga, providing a counter-balance to the more dynamic forms. An antidote to modern 'overload', especially helpful when you're tired, or over-stimulated, with an overactive mind & erratic energy levels. 

"The practice allows the body to drop down into the parasympathetic nervous system, and therefore becomes deeply healing and nourishing. Practitioners report that it is grounding, calming and revitalising, with profound energetic and emotional effects"
