It comes from the Sanskrit word meaning `contentment` and is a reflection of our desire in the Studio to develop within each student a very real sense of peace, stillness and inner contentment.
The demands of modern living can lead to exhaustion and as our energy levels become depleted we can begin to feel frustrated, isolated and perhaps even dis - connected .
The practice of yoga promotes and cultivates equilibrium and balance physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. We enhance our sense of perception, develop self - acceptance and move progressively towards greater kindness, tolerance, patience and understanding of others.
Your practice can become an oasis of calm through which you integrate the various levels of your multi - dimensional being to achieve and sustain `Santosha`.
The living breathing experience of `santosha` is as important today in the 21st century as it was thousands of years ago in India and we are proud, delighted and inspired to name the Studio after such ancient wisdom!
