International Yoga Day
by Delight Yoga, 23-May-2018
Come and celebrate International Yoga Day with us on June 21st.
During International Yoga Day we celebrate yoga and that it embodies unity of mind and body, thought and action. It's holistic approach that is valuable to our health and our well-being.
Yoga is not just about exercise; it's a way to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and nature.
"Yoga cultivates the ways of maintaining a balanced attitude in day-to-day life and endows skill in the performance of one's action."
- B.K.S Iyengar
For this special day we have created a beautiful program open to everyone and free of charge. Two of the 3 classes are donation based, the donation goes to The IMOVE Foundation (please find information below). We invite all who like to unite with us and to take a moment to relax and to listen to your heart.
Join us and bring your beloved ones to honour the sacred practices given by many guru's over the years!

World Yoga Day special Yin Class with Live Music
This special Yin class offers you the possibility to combine the deep relaxation that arrives in the body and the mind from the Yin practice with beautiful live music from Max his native American flutes and from Lydia with her harmonium. Staying a longer period in a pose will give you time to turn inside, to relax the muscles and reach the deep layers of the physical body. The live music will inspire your energetic body and bring you into a different level of relaxation. Each flute has a different vibration that connects with deeper layers of the energetic body. Together with the vibrations of the harmonium and the mantra singing you will immediately tap into the energy field of surrender and letting go of the mind and thoughts.
If the weather allows we will be outside in the Westerpark. If the weather is 'Dutch' please find us at Prinseneiland. Free class, open for all, let's celebrate yoga together.
