Hello summer, we've been waiting for you!

The weather is warming up and we feel the world brightening around us as we exhale our worries and inhale the sunshine. There is so much to celebrate this season: reconnecting with friends and family in person, our studios being fully open, and all the fun that comes with Pitta season.

While we want to leave you to enjoy life outside again, we would like to let everyone know about our updated Corona measures and new summer offerings. We have created a Balance Your Pitta program customized to your needs this Pitta season - use our new Delight Summer Card to take part.

With love,

The Delight Team

 


Theme of the Month: Staying Open 

 

By Kevin Sahaj

 "Have you ever felt the feeling of complete relaxation in your body? Have you ever been content with things as they are without judging them, clinging to them, or rejecting them? Have you ever felt like your mind is as open as the sky and every possibility is there? Can you fly in the sky at each moment like a bird leaving no trace? This openness is our natural state, it is the real 'you'!"
