Studio News: November 2021

Life is filled with rhythms. Just as we follow each inhale with an exhale and fall asleep after the sun sets, in autumn, nature calls us inside to rest. We need to make sure that we care for ourselves throughout this season, otherwise, we can lose ourselves in this windy, turbulent time.

To help you move through autumn, or Vata season in Ayurveda, we are bringing back our popular 'Balance Your Vata' program! Over 8-weeks, you will receive weekly emails filled with wisdom talks, yoga Asana practices, nourishing Ayurveda recipes, and self-care tips to balance your Vata. Our hope is that this programme helps you reconnect with nature's rhythms and restore your own energy levels this autumn. 


With love,

Delight Yoga

Our Balance Your Vata program is back!

The air is colder, the wind is starting to blow, plants are drying up - in Ayurvedic terms, this means that Vata season has arrived. This also means that it's time for our Balance Your Vata program - our popular 8-week program that helped so many of our students come into greater balance with themselves and the world around them last year.
