Hygge ( Pron: Hoo-gah )
the Scandinavian concept of getting cosy
Hygge Yoga: A cosier way to practice Yoga - inspired by all things Hygge.
Hygge was made famous by the Norwegians, Finns, Swedes and Danes - who are among the happiest nations on the planet in all the happiness surveys – so they must be doing something right. Think the simple pleasures in life, being surrounded by friends, real wood fires, fairy lights, woollen socks, lovely blankets and gorgeous candles.
Hygge and yoga are natural partners. Hygge, the Scandinavian concept of getting cosy, comfortable and relaxed; focussing on what is important, noticing the simple things and being grateful for what you have. The yoga principles of self-love and gratitude are also foundations of hygge. So practicing yoga inspired by all things hygge makes for a perfect combination.
