The class combined mantras from the Kundalini tradition, combined with hatha, yin and vinyasa yoga sessions. Each teacher thaught for 15 minutes, after which a switch was made during a resting pose such as childspose. With the event, the teachers wanted to show how versitile yoga can be.

Our favourite quotes about yoga, nature and life

Yoga quote

Yoga is zoveel meer dan alleen de fysieke beoefening. Yoga veranderd de manier waarop we denken, voelen, ons tot de natuur en tot anderen verhouden en daarmee de manier waarop we leven. Er is al zo ontzettend veel geschreven over yoga. En tegelijkertijd kan je yoga alleen maar begrijpen door het te ervaren. De beoefening zorgt voor inzichten, niet andersom. Die inzichten zijn soms bijna niet in tekst te vangen. We hopen jullie met deze 25 (Engelse) quotes over yoga en alles wat daar mee verbonden is te inspireren en te motiveren in jullie practise. Enjoy :)
