If you visit the website for our B&B, you will see no availability on the calendar to book rooms for the night of 11th February – When we have a Pure Punjabi event, because our website calendar covers all the booking sites (expedia, booking.com etc.) we block out availability, so that we can manually manage Pure Punjabi customer room bookings and give them booking priority.
who will be leading the yoga session
A native instructor and educator who is making waves – on an international level- for sharing the richness of yoga, Indian culture and Hinduism in the most authentic way possible.
She has caused major ‘head turns’ on TikTok and Instagram for addressing how so many of the cultural elements have been stripped away from Yoga in the West, causing it to be (often unknowingly) t.o.t.a.l.l.y misrepresented and often making any potential participant feel that they need major athletic prowess in order to take part – which couldn’t be further from the truth.
Many of her followers who are of Indian origin (us included) have thanked Nikita for highlighting the huge disparity between what we have grown up seeing and calling Yoga, versus what we see taught in gyms and studios across the country. Many of her followers who are not of Indian origin have equally thanked her for making them aware of an important issue that they weren’t even aware that they had unwittingly perpetuated and it has sparked a desire to learn more.
In bravely challening how Yoga is recognised (and unfortunately misrepresented) in the West, she was featured in both The Times and The Guardian this December, as a voice bringing the true message of Yoga – as we grew up knowing it as women of Indian origin.
What will be happening:
A mini snack on arrival (in accordance with yogic practice)
To fuel your body before the yoga session
Talk from Nikita
A short talk from Nikita on the roots of yoga to provide cultural context before the yoga
…with Nikita. An inclusive session for all people of all ages and abilities. Learn more about Nikita further below.
Lunch (in accordance with yogic pratice)
you will be given a glass of Nimbu Paani (lemon refresher) upon finishing yoga practice to rehydrate your body. You will then be served a 2-course Punjabi meal. All the food & drink served throughout the event has been put together to specifically compliment everything that you have learnt and practiced with Nikita.
