About the workshop:
Opening each day with a traditional fire ceremony at dawn this workshop is a unique opportunity to gain an understanding of the theory, practice and essence of classical yoga (Asana and Pranayama), with Sudhir Tiwari. The morning session will be a practical class of Asana and Pranayama, followed by a break and return for the afternoon sessions which will include chanting, meditation and a Q&A/ discussion.
Sudhir presents the fundamentals of classical yoga, in both theory and practice. This workshop is open to students from all backgrounds of yoga, as it will reveal the true message and integrity of classical yoga as it has been passed down. Sudhir is a captivating speaker, presenting ancient teachings with modern relevance, and delivering entertaining stories with wit and charm of life growing up amongst some of the greatest yogis of our time.
Brought up amidst a rich traditional yogic heritage in Lonavla, India, around the influence of masters, Sudhir learned Yoga and Ayurveda directly from his teacher Swami Digambarji and his father Sri Om Prakash Tiwari.
Sudhir went on to complete an engineering degree in India, and finished his MBA in the USA, before working as a senior executive within the health and wellness industry.
Now living with his family in Canada, Sudhir has since given up the corporate world and dedicates his life to teaching yoga via Kaivalyadham International Canada. Like his Father Sri O. P. Tiwari, Sudhir’s skills have taken him around the world teaching the art & philosophy of Yoga and Ayurveda.
Sudhir has taught to yoga teachers and students alike, travelling to France, Spain, China, Thailand, United States and all over Canada presenting yoga seminars. Sudhir uses his background experience and specialty knowledge to promote yoga and wellness to every corner of the world. Soul Train Yoga and Light Source Yoga in Cairns are delighted and honoured to be hosting Sudhir on his visit to Cairns.
