Special Classes: January 2018

by Delight Yoga, 29-Dec-2017

Special Classes

Yoga has so many more qualities than just the physical practice on the mat (asana). You may have experienced some magic during a class, leaving energized and relaxed and with a feeling of more spaciousness. But in fact, this magical feeling can stay with you when you take the practice with you off the mat. The key is to apply yoga to our daily lives and to experience the present Now in all little things we do. This might seem difficult in the beginning, but no worries, take it slow - step by step - this can be everyone's reality.

To inspire you to take yoga off the mat and support you in this yoga journey, we offer Special Classes. All special classes can be booked through the regular schedule which means they can be done with your current membership or card, or by a Delight Guest (single class payment). 

Below you find the special classes for the coming month.

Come and join the beauty of life through dance, chanting, meditation and more!

Osho Meditation

With Ilanit de Wilde
Nieuwe Achtergracht | 12 January, 2018 | 20:00 – 21:30 

In order to live a more fulfilled life, you will want to get to know your full potential, your true Self. Meditation is the route to that knowing. It is the methodology of the science of awareness.   The beauty of the inner science is that it enables whoever wants to explore and to experiment within, to do so alone. This eliminates dependence on an outer authority, the need to be affiliated with any organization and the obligation to accept a certain ideology. Once you understand the steps, you walk the walk in your own, individual way.   Many meditative techniques require one to sit still and silent. But for most of us accumulated stress in our bodymind makes that difficult. Before we can hope to access our inner powerhouse of consciousness, we need to let go of our tensions.   Osho Active Meditations have been scientifically designed by Osho over a period of time to enable us to consciously express and experience repressed feelings and emotions, and learn the knack of watching our habitual patterns in a new way.

Bookable through the regular schedule from January 6th
