Studio News: November 2020

by Delight Yoga

1-November-2020

This November asks us to slow down. Just as nature begins to retreat in preparation for the winter ahead, we have the chance to settle in and reflect on all that has happened this year. 2020 has brought unprecedented challenges and changes to all of our lives, and we can take the time now to evaluate which lessons we want to take with us and what pieces of our old lives we want to leave behind.

Today, we began our first ever Delight Yoga Lifestyle Program, an 8-week program we created to help our community stay balanced this Vata season. We are so grateful that close to 800 of you signed up to take part, and are excited to start this journey together.

Wishing all of you a calm and restorative November.

With love,

the Delight Team

 

Theme of the Month: Buddha's Teachings: The Eightfold Path - 7. Right Mindfulness (Samma sati)

"When I started practising yoga, meditation was the most difficult element of yoga classes for me. I found my mind buzzing with comments, memories, conversations, music, and other kinds of activity. This felt very different from the calm and peace that meditation was supposed to bring.

Only when I started exploring the concept of Mindfulness and meditation, was I able to learn more about the basic ‘machinations of my mind’, like distinguishing between thoughts, emotions and feelings."

- Sunny Hipeli
