All about water: its role in nature, in health, in energy, in spiritual development
Water is central to all life. It is a mystery, a miracle. When it comes to health, nothing is more vital than the inner fluids of the human body. Our joints, our brains, our vital organs – indeed all our tissues – are fed and bathed by biological waterways. Blood nourishes us, lymph cleanses us. As we age, however, we tend to accumulate toxins which interfere with the functioning and free-flow of these pathways. This will result inevitably in illness, aging and premature death.
Leonardo Da Vinci compared springs, rivers and aquifers to the blood vessels of the human body. Clean, healthy blood is essential for human life just as clean, healthy water in our environment is essential for all life. Nothing is more interconnecting than water, and it is the level of health of the fluids within your body that will ultimately determine your quality of life, and even how long you will live.
Are you curious to learn how to prevent, or reverse, degenerative disease? One way is to study what cutting edge scientific research is now showing us about water and health. Interestingly, the vital importance of water has also been primary in traditional Chinese medicine. Did you know that your internal waters, and hence your overall life force, can be cleaned and upgraded through special Qigong exercises?
This workshop is a true inspirational experience in which you will learn to embody the mysterious intelligence of water through contemplation and flowing movements. You can learn how to bring that intelligence of water deep into your own body.
You will learn:
– the cosmic origins of water – the oscillation dynamics of water
– the hidden force within water – the adaptability of water
– the memory of water – how water works within organs and cells
– how to move with fluidity and grace – how to revitalize organs and joints
– how water enhances your strength & spirit – how to harness inner power
– how molecular hydrogen works to heal your body
– how water can be refreshed and cleansed within your body

Do you love yoga? Of course you do. Yes, we all use yoga to keep our bodies youthful, trim and supple. But it can do far more than this: it can unleash our inner beauty as much as our outer beauty. However, on the very deepest level it’s a way to connect with all of nature, and with the very mystery of life.
So you see, if we choose to practice yoga internally, it can lead us to serenity, grace and wisdom. Yoga then becomes a journey of challenge, discovery and delight, a quest in pursuit of our deepest selves.
This workshop will present priceless information for whoever takes their yoga practice seriously. It will clearly explain the principles and philosophy of this ancient art. When you learn what is at the genuine heart of yoga, your body will automatically start to become younger, stronger, more flexible and more vibrant. The key lies in crucial information that leads to a deeper understanding. Otherwise, the gateway to progress is blocked. It is very rare that such an opportunity arises as this workshop.
Both days will consist of practice, lecture, pranayama, meditation, visualization techniques and energetic practices of Infinite Body™. Inspiring visuals will also be presented.

This workshop is about learning several key things: how to express your heartfelt passion in a down-to-earth sort of way; how to deliver profound teaching from a place of simplicity: and how to individualize your own teaching style. It will not only strengthen your ability as a benevolent teacher but also fortify your development as a character. If you would like to be inspired and supported in becoming an outstanding teacher who shines among the many talents in the industry, you will find these pedagogies invaluable.
It would be wonderful to nurture a supportive forum with like-minded colleagues and practitioners, so kindly share this information. For studio owners, this is an opportunity for your teachers to take another giant step forward. Wouldn’t it be ideal if your studio(s) were represented by distinguished, impressive teachers?
