Studio News: June 2021

By: Delight Yoga

June is here, and bringing with it the sweetest gift: after five long months, we are reopening our doors for all led classes on the 5th of June!

To celebrate our reopening we have a really special offer for you. With our Reopening Delight Membership, you’ll get a 25% discount on the first 3 months of your Delight Membership This offer is valid until the 1st of July. Are you an Astangi? With our Reopening Mysore Membership we also offer €20,- discount per month on the first 3 Month Mysore Membership.

We would like to invite you to a special reopening ceremony guided by Satya Katiza, where we will close the past five months and celebrate a new beginning together. We will take a moment to reflect on the past half-year of lockdown, the hardships we experienced together, and the lessons learned. This ceremony will take place online on the 5th of June from 11.00 - 12.00. You can access the ceremony through this link.

It has been heartwarming to experience the power of the Delight Community in these tough times, and we can’t wait to welcome you all back with smiles and loving (socially distanced) greetings in person.

With love and blessings,
The Delight Team

Theme of the Month: Following a Spiritual Path

By Kevin Sahaj

"We are born into this world, we live for a short time, and then we die. What then is the meaning and purpose of our lives if everything disappears? Is there something deeper and more meaningful to being alive than just satisfying our desires, the pursuit of pleasure, and the avoidance of pain? What is freedom? Is there a path to this deeper place, and how do I follow this path?
At some point, all of us ask these kinds of questions. We can feel a deep longing to be free as we sense that our lives are too small for what we are meant to be."
