Studio News: October 2021

by Delight Yoga


Autumn is awaiting us with exciting changes and transformations.
Just as the trees outside shed their leaves, our bodies and minds can shed old patterns in order to make space for new vibrancy and growth. This is an ideal time to evaluate which habits bring you closer to yourself, and which ones no longer serve you.

We have created our newest program, ‘30 Days of Delight’, to help you incorporate yoga into your daily life - both on and off the mat. You will receive a 30-day calendar, daily rituals, recommended practices, self-care tips, and inspirational blogs that will take you through what yoga is and how it can positively impact your life and well-being. 

Would you like to bring a friend along on your journey? Spread the yoga love and bring a friend to class for free! All you need to do is send this link to your friends and plan a class together before 1 November.

With love,

The Delight Team
