All About Santokh Yoga + Wellness
Yoga dates back thousands of years ago, originating in India with a goal of uniting mind, body, and spirit — which is the translation of the word, ‘yoga.’ The team at Santokh kept this in mind when naming this new studio.
“Santokh is an Indian Gurmukhi word which translates to ‘Santosha’ in Sanskrit and “Contentment” in English,” the website reads. “Contentment is also one of the Niyama as per the Patanjali Yoga Sutra.” The Niyamas roughly translate to observations or duties and act as a set of guidelines for healthy and mindful living.
As such, Santokh’s goal is to utilize yoga to help guide practicers to their own balance and contentment. The studio will offer classes, programs, and events for those who have been practicing yoga for years as well as beginners. Ultimately, Santokh aims to be a space for everyone to come together to merge mind, body, and soul in a safe + welcoming atmosphere.
