Santosha Yoga is a yoga studio in Gig Harbor, Washington, dedicated to the concept that yoga is for EVERY body and everybody can do yoga. A regular yoga practice builds strength, flexibility, balance, & peace of mind. Our studio has a variety of registered yoga teachers and we invite you to flow, sweat and breathe with us.
Santosha is one of the Niyamas – Personal Observances, part of the 8 Limb Of Yoga. Santosha is contentment, and modesty. The feeling of being content with what we have. To be at peace within and content with one’s lifestyle finding contentment even while experiencing life’s difficulties for life becomes a process of growth through all kinds of circumstances. We should accept that there is a purpose for everything – yoga calls it karma – and we cultivate contentment ‘to accept what happens’. It means being happy with what we have rather than being unhappy about what we don’t have.
We want everyone to feel welcome at Santosha and find contentment on the mat, noticing where you are in your pose right now and realizing that it is perfect.
