Yoga 24x7 Active Website DB Entry Yoga 24x7 is a novel and revolutionary concept that comprises of the powerful and transformative 24 principles and 7 practices designed to promote well-being. The 24 principles are universal and axiomatic truths encoded within one's consciousness and body (genes) and found in the wisdom texts of the world and the writings of great sages, philosophers, scientists, and therapists, both ancient and modern. Awareness of these principles and their manifestation into our day-to-day lives through the 7 practices would guarantee well-being and happiness (individual and collective, on all levels - body, mind, intellect and self), while ignorance and neglect of them would produce the opposite. As part of our weekly sessions we do hatha yoga and have lectures on the yoga 24x7 concepts. Subscribe to email list for updated information about meeting times and locations.
