Earth Yoga Village lives by the motto ‘Love the Life you Live & Live the Life you Love’ and we invite you to join in.
Back in Jan.2014 the vision of our founder Anand garg became reality.The vision of creating an environment for like-minded people to come together as a community and to enjoy and celebrate the beauty that is life.Earth Yoga Village was born and with that, many ideas, plans and projects.Since then we have been blessed with an incredible amount of wonderful energy to keep us going and even more incredible people that have contributed to Earth Yoga Village being the amazing place it is today.
We are not done yet. We are not stopping. We are on a mission. A mission to spread the word of 4 Immeasurable's - Loving-Kindness,Compassion, Empathic Joy, Equanimity as well as the ancient philosophy of yoga and its benefits for the greater good. The tradition of yoga dates back many thousands of years and is experiencing a boom in our modern times. We make it a priority to keep the belief system and philosophy sacred and pass it on mindfully.
Yoga is so much more than just the physical practice of asanas that has become so popular in the West. Earth Yoga Village makes it a focus point to teach the whole package of Yoga holistically. It's about the teachings of Yamas and Niyamas which are the foundation for a yogic life.It is about pranayama and asana which prepare body and mind for meditation which is the ultimate aim - to reach Samadhi - according to ancient yogic beliefs. It is also about maintaining a balanced lifestyle and not wearing spirituality only on our sleeve but really incorporating it into our daily lives.
We wholeheartedly welcome you to Earth Yoga Village.
