Studio News: July 2022

By: Delight Yoga

Theme of the Month: Play

At the end of 2021, we asked our students to share their intentions, questions, and needs for the upcoming year with us. Out of these intentions, we shaped 12 themes to guide our community throughout 2022. Each month, a member of the Delight community will share their thoughts on this theme from the heart. We invite you to join our online Monthly Satsang and online Ayurveda Sangha for more inspiration, connection, and spiritual direction.

Please enjoy this month's theme,'Play', written by Nathalie Ho-Kang-You.

A Gift From Us To You

In this short video, Marcel will use a Hindu story to help you connect with your inner child and remember how to be childlike, fearless, and playful.

Introducing the Delight App!

Exciting news! We have created an app to help you book your classes easily - you can now download the “Delight Yoga” app for iOs and Android.

We would like to make a small comment on the app - as you know, we love to give you high-quality, beautiful experiences at Delight. The app as it is now does not quite meet our standards when it comes to visual appearance. We have had quite a few discussions about this within our team - can we offer this to our students as is? Or is this app not beautiful enough?

Since some students are still experiencing difficulties booking classes with our website, we chose to go with function over form. We hope you can still appreciate the benefits of the app - we hope to give you a better visual experience at the end of this year.
