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?
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.
