Her main influence, who’s daily Pure Yoga and meditation practice she has been following for the last 10 years is Swami Purohit (http://www.swamipurohit.com) An amazing, enlightened Himalayan Yoga Master, now living in Granada. She ongoingly spends one weekend every month in training with him as she has done for the last 6 years and has been graced with full permission to teach his Pure Yoga exercises.
Pure Yoga exercises are very simple but incredibly powerful in moving the prana vayus (energy currents) of the body, increasing vitality and usually inducing a state of calm serenity through all aspects of our being.
“Having been a regular practitioner of many different styles of yoga, the exercises I will share with you at our International yoga day celebrations are the ones I will always choose to restore my equilibrium if I feel tired, unwell, stressed, out of balance or disturbed in any way.”
They are easy and accessible to people of all ages and abilities, whether they have any previous yoga experience or not.
We will finish our class with a short but sweet, heart centred meditation to bathe in the serenity we have created through our practice…
Leonie has travelled extensively in India and trained with other Great Masters, including Sri Barfani Dadaji Maharaj who asked her to start the ‘United World Yoga Trust’ project in order to help make yoga wisdom accessible to all; aiding the promotion of peace in this world.
