Ayurvedic Fasting & Yoga for Women
A week of Ayurvedic therapeutic fasting and yoga on the beautiful North Sea coast in a relaxed, family atmosphere at the Haus am Watt. Expertly accompanied by the alternative practitioner Dagmar Dührsen, with whom in this week simple and effective measures are learned to relieve the body and do something good for yourself.
In this week you can relieve your body in a gentle way of residues that often make us heavy and sluggish and burden the tissues and the mind - to then start with renewed vigor in everyday life.
The lovingly prepared food is reduced to the Ayurvedic healing food during this week, supplemented by broths, herbal teas and herbal powders. Ayurvedic fasting does not mean a complete deprivation of food, but the restriction to a few foods, a lot of drinking, supplemented by Ayurvedic herbs and spices. So also the pleasure does not come too briefly.
In the morning we meet to practice two hours of relaxed yoga. The calm and mindful exercises with body, breath and mind support the purification and relief of the system. Far away from everyday life, you will find peace and deep relaxation. Previous knowledge of yoga is not required.
Further relaxation is provided by the wonderful Ayurvedic oil massages with the precious herbal oils, which have a cleansing effect from the outside and release metabolic residues from the tissues.
Otherwise, there is plenty of time to enjoy the peace and nature, to read, to go for walks, to simply be with yourself and to recharge your batteries.
Course instructor: Dagmar Dührsen
I am a certified yoga teacher BDY/EYU, alternative practitioner for Ayurveda medicine and have been teaching since 2003. I have been working with people in movement therapy for a long time and with great pleasure and like to pass on the knowledge I have received from my teachers.
I have done several yoga teacher trainings in Germany and India, but I still see myself as a student. In Viniyoga in the tradition of Sri Krishnamacharya and Sri T.K.V. Desikachar I have found my home and I am a student of R. Sriram (teacher of the yoga path). My wish is to pass on my love for yoga and the experiences from my own practice in teaching.
I studied Ayurvedic medicine at the European Academy of Ayurveda, learned Ayurvedic massage there and with various teachers. I continue to learn here in Germany and India and do regular internships.
My special love belongs to Ayurvedic herbalism and manual therapy with its wonderful massages, oils and marble therapy.
