Studio News: September 2020

by Delight Yoga

1-September-2020

After a hectic summer, we're returning to reality; schools are back open, work has resumed, and we settle into normal life again. Except that this year has been anything but normal, and we're still living in uncertain times. In the midst of all this change, it's important to feel grounded and equanimous, and we are here to support you.

Yoga and meditation are powerful tools that give the ability to find an internal balance regardless of external circumstances. This month, you can take one of our courses that encourage a regular practice, for example, 
The Essentials of Yoga: a 21-day home practice training with Satya & Sahaj or Meditation Course: I Am with Rolandjan van Mulligen.

Please don't hesitate to reach out, we would love to help you with this new transition.

With love,

the Delight Team


 

Theme of the Month: Buddha's Teachings: The Eightfold Path - 5. Right Livelihood (Samma ajiva)


"Right Livelihood" concerns the importance of earning a living in an ethical manner, a dilemma that often comes up, and one that is especially sensitive when working in a yoga studio. Often, yoga and money seem like opposing forces - we often get questions about how one can "profit" off of yoga, or what it is like to work in the yoga world."

Studio News: Introducing Free Community Yoga Classes in Amsterdam


Yoga is for everyone. Yes, we truly believe that. We feel it is important to make yoga more accessible and inclusive.

To support the path to a more inclusive yoga world, we are happy to announce that we will offer Community Yoga classes in Amsterdam twice a week as of September.

With our Community Yoga classes, Delight Yoga is aiming to make the ancient teachings of yoga accessible to everyone, including those who can’t afford to come to our classes regularly.
