Natya Yoga by Dimple Kaur @ Eros Hotel Spa

Spiritual enlightenment and transformation of the entire human self, one’s body, mind and soul are the true virtues of Natya Yoga. Elements of natty Yoga are found in the contemporary Bharatnatyam and also to some extent in the Odissi, which are referred as the most ancient forms of classical Indian dance.

Recently as an initiative by Eros Hotel Spa, Healthy Self, a Natya Yoga Workshop was conducted by none other than a very well known Nayta Yoga and Bharatnatyam expert Dimple Kaur. Dimple is a very learned dancer with many degrees accolading her work and also she is associated with lot of causes. With qualifications in psychology (PhD., MSc.), Trainer in Clinical Hypnotherapy (CHt, USA) along with training in Indian classical dance, public communication and English literature (MA), she is also the Founder Director – Imatter Institute of Behavioral Sciences & Director – Sumangali Institute of Valuable Arts.

Pioneered first of its kind approach using Dance Movement therapy (DMT) for children with multiple disabilities, and she has been working with large number of colleges, schools (residential & day schooling) in training teachers in areas of Indian Classical Dance, Dance Movement Therapy, responsible child care and parenting.

In her own words “Dance has been my passion, my prayer, my happiness, my sadness and hence encompasses every aspect of my life. The “eternal bride” – wedded to the divine, through dance; is what I feel. I have always loved the “bhakti” aspect of dance, I see my lord as always dancing and blessing me with “Anand” & “Rasa”. My soul is always dressed in the costume, bedecked with jewellery, with alta feet and always moving with the sound of Ghungroos.

As I kept flowing with the river of life – growing up, getting educated in dance (Prabhakar), Psychology & literature, I gradually became aware of miraculous dance of life within, which is Omnipresent & is always there with me.

In my extensive research & work in areas of psychotherapy, counseling & education, I have been able to successfully use the power of Indian classical dance as a tool of self expression, motivation & positive energy.”

The workshop was specially organised for the members of Healthy Self and must say it was a wonderful experience. Dimple engaged and interacted with the audience and made them learn the basic steps of Bharatnatyam. She made it so simple and fun for everyone that even those who had two left feet, could really dance. The setting and ambience was perfect and serene and everyone was just flowing with the time.

But still the highlight of the evening was Dimple’s own performance especially curated for Shivratri and dedicated to Lord Shiva. It was a treat watching her perform and it truly felt as if being transferred in other world. Here is a glimpse from her performance

Truly a great effort by Eros Hotel, Healthy Self and Dimple Kaur to come up with this initiative and help others in unwinding and transforming their mind, body and soul through Natya Yoga.

Witlinger to bring the authentic Craft experience with state of art breweries and new brewing technologies in India

Witlinger, India’s 1st Craft Beer Brand with authentic taste and flavours is all set to launch new initiative #NowRolling to enhance consumer knowledge about craft beer. Witlinger has made inroads into Indian Craft Beer scene with their unique taste and honest flavours.

Beer drinking habits are creating fresh wave of flavors and trends in international markets. Craft beer has taken the global beer industry by storm and it is catching up the taste of Indian consumers swiftly. Though market has great potential, there is a lack of acceptance among Indian consumers for crafted beers due to lack of consumer knowledge. Though this is changing on fast pace, as young Indian drinkers are ready to experience new flavours and different style of beers.

To create awareness and enhance consumer experience, India’s first craft beer brand with its 130 years of legacy along with innovative technologies, Witlinger unveiled its new innovative campaign- #NowRolling. The event held at Lord of the Drinks, Connaught Place also introduced ‘Witparty’, a fresh concept by Witlinger wherein end users get a chance to organize their own party sponsored by the brand.

#NowRolling campaign is first-of-its-kind concept in India driven on enhancing consumer knowledge and generating awareness on beer drinking habits to create an authentic experience of crafted beers. The campaign aims to target the beer lovers with interesting awareness drive around craft beer drinking experience. Rolling of a beer bottle is a craft beer initiative and is mainly with unfiltered wheat beers. Unfiltered beers have ingredients that gets settle at the bottom of the bottle. To enjoy the full flavors and aromas bottle needs to be rolled and swirled before pouring it fully in the glass. The trained staff and beer experts of Witlinger will take the consumers’ experience to whole new level with tips on pouring, drinking, and enjoying the best of craft beer.

Speaking on the occasion, Anuj Kushwah, Founder & Managing Director, Kaama Impex Pvt. Ltd said, “Craft beer has a unique style and taste, which can only be enjoyed if poured right to preserve its aroma, ingredients and feel. While craft beer the next big thing in India, many people do not get to enjoy the original taste of it because of unawareness on serving and drinking methods. Witlinger is creating fresh avenues to satiate consumers’ growing thirst for craft beer with its innovative concepts like ‘Witparty’ and #NowRolling.”

‘Witparty’ is conceptualized to target the beer lovers as brand advocates and offer them the zesty flavor of Witlinger. Witlinger will give its end users a platform to organize their own witparty which will be supported by the brand. The Wheat Ale beer is created with a sole idea of providing the Indian consumers with varied and premium quality craft beer. It is cloudy and partially filtered and has fruity flavors making it easy to drink beer any time of the day. It is brewed with mix of wheat & malt and also contains yeast, which should be evenly distributed throughout the beer by gently rolling the bottle back and forth before opening to pour.

The event as Lord of Drinks was a classy one, and we had a lot of fun rolling the beers and then gulping them down. Getting an invite to such events is always a pleasure. Nice arrangement of snacks and food made the experience complete and I really look forward to more WITPARTYs.

 

Craft beer offers some important health benefits because it contains antioxidants, protein, and vitamin B complex. It is a good source of silicon and some recent scientific studies show that hops could act as a barrier against gradual decline of the brain’s cognitive functions. Drinking craft beer regularly in moderate way can provide these benefits because of the high quality ingredients used to brew the craft beer.

Witlinger

Taking inspiration from the vibrant UK craft beer scene, Witlinger is the first crafted beer in India brewed by Master Brewers at Brains Brewery in Cardiff, United Kingdom. Combined with over 130 years of traditional brewing heritage, knowledge, and expertise, Witlinger beer is brewed with the finest ingredients from around the world to offer distinctive flavors, giving a real and honest craft beer experience.

Becoming Assiya- Book Launch and Review

The book was formally launched on 21st February, at Office Office CP, attended by a select few invitees and family and close friends.
It was a small intimate affair to laud the efforts of a young twenty year old girl whose efforts had borne fruit in the shape of her maiden book, BECOMING ASSIYA.


A word first about the young debut making author, SIMRAN KESHWANI.
She is a Final Year literature student at the Lady Shri Ram College for women, University of Delhi.
She is actively involved in several social causes and is working selflessly to change the world for good, one word at a time.

Kudos to Simran for choosing a very sensitive subject for her very first book, few dare to do so.
It is a tormenting story of a misplaced Syrian refugee and her trials n tribulations encompassing a world full of hatred.

Her journey right from her birth through the ravaging War and it’s bone chilling consequences to the tireless effort to reclaim her lost identity form the crux of this spellbinding tale of a physically and mentally ravaged young Assiya who amidst all the bloodshed,violence and extreme torture still manages to hang on to HOPE!!!!!!
HOPE for herself, her fellow human beings and the COUNTRY she belongs to SYRIA.

The canvass is a horrifying story of people of a war ravaged Syria and Simran’s portrayal of the same is captured in all it’s blood n gore. Fabulous writing which keeps you turning pages but also makes you stop inbetween and makes you think hard at what kind of a world are we a part of?
What kind of a legacy is this world going to leave for generations to come!!!!!

A really commendable piece of writing from this young upcoming author.

I am sure she is here to stay and make a name for herself in the literary world.

A MUST READ.

Available on Amazon
