Learn how to cook Indian cuisine, about vibration and sound and history of yoga
Naperville, IL (January 19, 2012) ‘Presenting India!’, an event hosted by Abhyaasa Yoga Studio in downtown Naperville, is about a variety of Indian cultures, not just a single culture within India. When you google the question, how many languages are spoken in India, the answer varies from there are 417 languages to there are 18 major languages and 1600 dialects. Indian foods and customs are equally as diverse. For the typical outsider, maybe one who is a beginning yogi or a visiting an Indian restaurant for the first time, it can be a long journey to become a authority of the philosophies and connoisseur of the flavors.
At ‘Presenting India!’ Sarita Sharma will demonstrate how to prepare a north Indian vegetarian dish as well as provide dinner following discussion and the musical performance. The discussion will be provoked by two film clips. One called ‘Yoga Unveiled’ and the other ‘Ragas Unveiled’. If there is interest, the writer and director of these films may visit Naperville during a full screening at a later date. Often, even after decades of yoga or Indian music study, the student will still consider him or herself to be just a novice. Yoga has been a practice in India for more than five millennia. It is a physical exercise, but ultimately it is about the health of the mind, body and spirit. For some, it is strictly a spiritual journey. Ragas, like hymns, can vary as such. For some, it is performance or duty, but for others they are conduits of sound from heaven.
‘Presenting India!’ is an education based event, but also a social gathering with a festive theme.
Note: A special treat from one of our patrons is the gift of Kashmiri Tea and she will bring traditional heaters from the Himalayan region!
