Their time proved efficiency help us to be aware of the elements that align and strengthen our body and to cultivate positive thoughts and emotions that leads us to a harmonious life. Thus, through the power of authentic knowledge and efficient practice, a positive transformation and a fulfilled existence can be achieved.
“In the Yoga tradition, Tripura Sundari is the Cosmic Energy of Beauty, Supreme Will and Universal Love, that is present in all the three worlds of manifestation. Sundari Center is committed to perpetuate in our existence, if so wanted, this wonderful vibrations that can make us appreciate and love life to a higher level. Because loving life is what we simply need in order to keep the flow of vital energy harmonizing our entire being, bringing us physical health, mental and emotional well-being. But what does “loving life” means and how to love it? Often it is simply a matter of observing and respecting our body by choosing the correct food, by being aware of the movements that align and strengthen it and by cultivating positive thoughts that leads us to harmonious emotions. We found out how important it is to seek to integrate ourselves with the synergy of the Universe cycles. Our goal is to achieve a holistic view of life, joining, experiencing and adapting traditions developed in various cultures. Thus through the power of love and efficient practice, it is possible to help those who want to live a healthy loving life. Everything around us can be our friend if we know truly how to love life! And this may be a beautiful and not so difficult lesson to learn.
May the light of beauty and love always embrace us!”
