yogaTenerife, during the months of September and October, is set to become the European Capital of Yoga for the year 2007. A special programme of events will be taking place at the Iberostar Grand Hotel Anthelia in Costa Adeje.

Yoga for health, healing and personal transformation is a four-week event presented by a well-known Indian family of teachers called the Mohan’s – Sri. A.G. Mohan, his wife Indra, and son Ganesh.

A G Mohan was one of the few people to study with the legendary yoga master Sri T Krishnamacharya, for 18 years.  Indra Mohan, received a diploma from Krishnamacharya and is an accomplished yoga therapist.  Ganesh Mohan is a doctor, formally trained in modern medicine and ayurveda.

The Mohans represent the living history of modern yoga and the link between the oldest traditions and the new expressions of yoga in the West. It is a privilege to have the presence of such valuable yoga teachers here. As part of the event, they will be offering yoga students from all over Europe the opportunity to study for the Diploma in Teaching the Science and Art of Yoga.

A series of weekend workshops on yoga and ayurveda will take place between 16 September and 14 October, along with wellness yoga retreat weeks, and a big yoga exhibition – all open to the public.

The exhibition “Yoga, The Inner Sound” will open each day during the four weeks, between 9.30am and 8pm. It will be formally opened by the Mohans and consists of a self-explanatory exhibition in both graphic and multimedia formats, the content of which has never been seen before in Spain.

The exhibition aims to bring answers to key questions about yoga and ayurveda, commonly asked by those interested in this ancient universal tradition for body and mind.During the exhibition visitors will receive complementary mini-massages applied by the Thai therapist team of Thai Zen Space, and will be able to sample a range of aromatic teas and light Asian snacks with ayurvedic inspiration.

At the end of the four weeks, a yoga master class is planned for the public, to take place on the beach. The Cabildo in Tenerife, Iberostar and Thai Zen Place spa are supporting these events.
