The word yoga literally means, “to connect”. For some it is a way to heal and connect to the body, to become healthy. For others a way to calm the mind, let go of stress and connect to the breath. A regular practice will help you to become aware and connect to the more subtle aspects of yourself. When these aspects become more integrated, you become more present in the moment and start aligning with your inner purpose.
We all want to be happy. But often we look for it in the wrong places. We look for happiness outside of ourselves. We think of it as something to be obtained in the future. Or that we left it behind in the past. We think we will find it in achievements. In experiences. Possessions. This has shaped a society in constant pursuit for more and a world that spins faster and faster, under ever-increasing pressure and stress. Luckily, more and more people are discovering that real lasting happiness is found within. And when we find inner peace, it reflects outward – benefitting people around us and all aspects of our lives. At Delight Yoga we believe that yoga and meditation can lead to inner peace. And inner peace to world peace. This is why we do what we do.
