In this 10-week lecture series on the topic of self-love, we will be looking at two basic concepts of ayurveda and yoga. One is our daily routines (dinarcharya) and their underlying connection with the yamas and niyamas of Patanjali. Your practice has brought you on a path and now you have a chance to dive deeper into radiance, self-love, trust and longevity by observing these simple rituals and making slight adjustments your day-to-day habits. I strongly believe that in this way you can deeply heal yourself and reconnect with the world around you.
