Pranayama and meditation

A few students gathered in rm 10 today for a lovely and relaxing pranayama and meditation session. We worked through some breath awareness using Sum Vritti (equal breathing) to begin the practice. We followed with Nadi Shodhana (alternate nostril breathing) which enabled our bodies to be gently guided into Dhyana (meditation). With a good hour of pranayama and mediation followed by a warm cup of green tea, the students left the room experiencing some of the qualities of an enlightened state of being. Image

Anj’s Curry Making Class

Anj’s amazing curry recipe has been a hidden secret for years! As my ancestors have travelled through Asia, each adding a secret ingredient each time, this recipe has been making for generations. Today, we revealed the secret recipe that is known as ‘the best curry in Noosa” some even say “best in Queensland”. The students had a chance to make the curry paste from scratch, adding in ‘secret ingredients’ and also chicken and veggies to create the master piece.

Image Finally the students were able to discover what the Noosa residences have been talking about….Anj’s famous Chicken Penang Curry! Delicious!

While the curry was on the stove cooking to perfection, the students took part in a charades battle!Image

The end result curry was worth the wait. All the students sat and enjoyed eating their curry with plenty of moans and groans indicating the truth about the curry… Proved to be the best in Noosa!Image
