Heart of India
Indian Classic Yoga - Heart of India is founded by Pinky More and Richard Slager. With our activities we bring ancient knowledge from India to Europa.
It is difficult to remain yourself in the hasty western lifestyle in which we currently live. We are consumed by what we consider the important things in our lives, but it does not make us any happier. Because of a fundamental cultural difference this happens less in India. The knowledge of umongst others Yoga and Ayurveda are part of their daily routine. By learning more about Yoga and Ayurveda we can learn more about ourselves, our body and the balance of body and mind. Only once we are balanced we can be truly happy.
With our activities we raise money for orphan girls in India. This way we give something back for the knowledge and wisdom we acquire.
