Upcoming month: Special Classes

by Delight Yoga, 04-Aug-2017

Special Classes

Yoga has so many more qualities than just the physical practice on the mat (asana). You may have experienced some magic during a class, leaving energized and relaxed and with a feeling of more spaciousness. But in fact, this magical feeling can stay with you when you take the practice with you off the mat. The key is to apply yoga into our daily lives and to experience the present Now in all little things we do. This might seem difficult in the beginning, but no worries, take it slow - step by step - this can be everyone's reality.

To inspire you to take yoga off the mat and support you in this yoga journey, we offer Special Classes. All special classes can be booked through the regular schedule which means they can be done with your current membership or card, or by a Delight Guest (single class payment). 

Below you find the special classes for the coming month.

Come and join the beauty of life through dance, chanting, meditation and more!
 

In Amsterdam this August

Dance Meditation  
With Stefanie van der Zwaal
Nieuwe Achtergracht | 11 August,  2017 |  20:00 - 21:30 

Dance meditation is a form of active meditation which offers the possibility to connect to what lives inside of yourself. It is an exercise in becoming silent and witnessing yourself, the thoughts, emotions, experiences, of everything inside you. The movement allows you to think less and experience more and surrender to the wisdom of the body. In a dance meditation, the dancer will go on a journey, sometimes following the movements of the body and sometimes experiencing the effect of specific movements. Sometimes through different musical rhythms, sometimes dancing to the sound of silence.

Bookable through the regular schedule from August 5th

OM: It’s meaning and Significance (talk) 
With Arvind Pare
Prinseneiland | 29 August,  2017 |  18:00 - 19:30 

Om is the name of Ishwara, the Lord, according to the Vedas, Bhagavad-Gita and Yoga Sutra. The sound of Om is considered most auspicious. Most mantras and prayers begin with Om. Om, however, is a mantra by itself. As far as symbols go, Om is truly Omnipresent. It's a word in the Sanskrit language, at the same time it transcends all languages. 

OM is considered to be the ‘primordial sound’. Even before the material creation came into existence there was only the natural humming energy which resembled the sound of OM. Today, we know that one form of energy can be converted to another form – electricity to sound, electricity to heat, heat to electricity etc. According to the famous equation by Einstein – E=mc2, all matter is nothing but waves of energy. So, when the ‘powers that be’ decided to create this material universe, they were able to use the ever-present humming sound vibration of OM to manifest this creation. This same vibration continues to exist all around us and even inside us. The inner sound is given the name "antar-naada" (the inner sound) which can be heard when we can tune into our pure inner self.  In this talk, we will take an in-depth look into the meaning and significance of Om. There will be time afterward for a Q&A session.  

Bookable through the regular schedule from August 23rd
