What is Santosha?
The Sanskrit word, Santosha (pronounced: San-TOE-sha) means Contentment. In Yoga, Santosha is one of many duties or niyamas of all individuals on Pantanjali's 8 Fold Path. The the roots of the word Santosha mean complete acceptance, being content wherever you find yourself, and that is our true goal.
At Santosha Yoga Crozet, we offer a range of classes from invigorating Vinyasa Yoga, to relaxing Restorative Yoga, to short meditation classes, which we hope will allow you to ground yourself, find your voice, and make your body feel good.
