The word Santosha is an ancient word in Sanskrit meaning contentment.
Santosha Yoga is committed to providing the physical, mental and spiritual tools for well-being for all. Our mission is to inspire, connect, educate and inter-relate ancient philosophy with yoga in the world around us. Yoga asks –
How can we live a simple life which brings us an understanding of contentment?
How can we be satisfied and contented in this modern, busy world, with it’s pressures and strains?
Yoga teachers us to look at our life through a different lens . The yogis nature is to look deeper into things, to go to the root, to explore our unhappiness and to find a place of contentment within. To be conscious means to be aware at all times of how we are and who we are.
Santosha Yoga is dedicated to those living a more conscious and compassionate life so a percentage of profits from fundraising/ workshops/classes and special events posted continue to support charities and other causes that include:
