Studio News: April 2020

by Delight Yoga

1-April-2020

This is a moment where transformation occurs, a tipping point. Although it might feel that your life has turned upside down, this time can also be a chance to reflect, let go of what no longer serves you, and create space for something new. Where in your life - and in the world - can you let go of attachment to old ways and routines of living that are no longer sustainable and open up to the transformation that is possible now?

Let's practice yoga to connect with ourselves and others, and get through this together.

Theme of the Month: The Fourth Noble Truth - The path that leads to the end of suffering

"Suffering is a message that tells you to reassess where you are at in your trajectory and get back on your path of self-discovery and realisation.  And that’s what’s meant by ‘doing the work’, or walking The Noble Eightfold Path. It may sound daunting or highly spiritual, but when translated into modern-day language, this can be very practical. Wake up early, do your practice, get quiet, be still, be mindful, open your palms and listen. Close your eyes in order to see." - Maarten van Huijstee

We deeply appreciate those of you who have continued to support us by maintaining your memberships, donating to our teachers, and sending us kind words. These past weeks have shown us the beauty of our community, and we feel incredibly grateful.

✓ All yoga styles and for all levels
✓ Access to rewatch live-streams up to 7 days
