Dinesh will lead a yoga class Yoga for the soul

Saturday 8.00 CET

Yoga was practiced to attain samadhi or liberation. Now people practice yoga to attain a perfect body of lasting beauty and health. However, such a goal is impossible to achieve. A real yogi knows that the purpose of yoga asanas and breathing techniques is to attain optimum mental health rather physical, regardless of age.

Yoga for physical beauty never gives permanent happiness as our body will eventually breakdown.
When a person’s happiness is dependent upon the body being perfectly beautiful or healthy, it will only increase anxiety, stress and fear about the future.


This is the misconception of yoga in modern lifestyle!


Real happiness comes when a person achieves the actual goal of yoga, in spiritual well-being.
Yoga is not just a practice of adjusting body but it teach us how to adjust with your lifestyle in any condition.This inner happiness shines through your eyes, your expressions, and your attitude toward others which reflect in your aura. Yoga is to cleanse our Soul. Cleanse your ignorance. Understand the real meaning of life and the purpose of being a human . It is what makes you truly beautiful, regardless of your age, your clothes, or your looks.


So in reality – Yoga is for the Soul!
