About our yoga school
Altruism, friendship, love, benevolence; Maitri is a concept that define a form of love without attachment. Cultivating altruistic behavior towards oneself and all living beings is one of the main goals and benefits of practicing yoga with a meditative attitude and awareness.
Maitri also describes a mental and spiritual union that occurs when two or more people are synchronized on the same wavelength, sharing the same path; thus, Maitri Yoga – Citizen Association for Yoga and Spiritual Development. This is our intention, this is our path.
Our sankalpa is to create a community of beings involved in the spiritual path of yoga, as well as those who are interested in improving the quality of their overall well-being of body mind and spirit.
Besides daily yoga lessons, our yoga school regularly organizes yoga workshops, teacher training and yoga retreats in Europe.
Maitri Yoga is a Registered Yoga School (RYS) with Yoga Alliance® and meets the standards of Yoga Alliance®. Students that complete our verified Teacher Training Course have the right to apply to Yoga Alliance® as Registered Yoga Teachers (RYTs).
