"Myself and Amy did really well for the week after eating baby like food to start with and made really good use of the recipe booklet.
I really enjoyed the experience and couldn't have had of a nicer group of people to do it with. Really nice."
"Enjoyed learning this process and learning about my body and the flows of the digestive system."
" I liked how Tyag kept good humour through the process and shared his experience and realized knowledge."
"The instructor demonstrated sound practical knowledge of all the practices. He was always encouraging and supportive and his lighthearted manner most refreshing.
The participants were also encouraging and supportive of each other. I felt part of a friendly, respectful group."
"Although it was my first cleanse, I found it a very benefical experience. It was very well timed as I was also clearing old patterns within myself. Tyag looked after us all very well and the day flowed beautifully. It is now the 9th day and I feel clearer, healthier and ready to shift into the new season knowing I am not taking the old with me. A big thank you from me...and you might just see me at the next one."

Testimonial: "I am 68yrs old. I am a retired registered nurse. My health is good. However some issues – back and neck stiffness and soreness along with an intermittently painful R hip was impacting my wellbeing. I was attending very regular appointments with massage therapists, chiropractors and physios. I enrolled in classes at Yoga and Daily Life. Since attending the Back and Neck Care and with continued practice the problems mentioned above have improved markedly, along with maintaining and improving my flexibility. Meditation and Relaxation sessions are an integral part of each session, and these techniques have contributed to an increase in my sense of wellbeing as managing stress has always been a challenge for me. YIDL is a very welcoming and supportive environment. Teachers are great and are always aware of individual needs as well as the group as a whole. I am very happy to recommend this course. "Rhonda D

Practical Yoga Philosophy workshop & Meditation
with MM Swami Jasrajpuri
10 November, 1.30 -4 pm
Workshop series on Patañjali Yoga Sūtras
Kriya Yoga & Karma
Yoga is often understood to be series of postures and breathing exercises for nurturing health, balance and harmony in the body. However the treasures of Yoga span far beyond the physical. All authentic Yoga practices have at their heart a gradual quest towards understanding, and sublimating the mind. Eventually merging the individual self in meditation (samādhi).
The Yoga Sūtras, compiled by the Sage Patañjali, are the primary text of Yoga Philosophy. This ancient text is presented in short, often terse, 'sutras' or threads, which are unfolded by contemplation to reveal their wisdom. The Sūtras cover a broad range of topics regarding practice, the mind, the pitfalls of practice, aṣtānga yoga, meditation and enlightenment.
Swami Jasraj Puri presents the Yoga Sūtras with mind to their import to daily life. Infused with anecdotes and experiences of living more than 20 years as a monk in India, his down to earth style and practical examples make the Sūtras accessible to all. Each session includes a discourse on a section of the Sūtras, pranayam practice and a group meditation.
This workshop is suitable for all levels from beginner to advanced. You will leave with valuable tools that can be applied to even the busiest lifestyle.
Contribution $35 includes light refreshment (or pay $60 for two)
Satsang & Meditation Saturday 10 Nov, 6pm (contribution $10 starts with light dinner)
