Important information regarding Sampoorna Yoga Studio

The studio must remain closed until 15 January 2021, according to the current restrictions. At the same time we continue paying rent, we have monthly bills for electricity, water, IT systems, insurance, etc. We want to pay our teachers fair rates for their online classes, and as a compassionate gesture we continue to pay our cleaning lady even if there is no work. How to pay for all this when the studio is closed? That’s the question!

We are making savings wherever we can – cancelling unnecessary contracts, negotiating prices – and we thought that you, as our loyal students, might like to join in a team effort to keep the studio going over the lockdown period – so that as soon as we can open again, you will be able to enjoy classes with your trusted teachers in our warm and welcoming studio.


Here is how you can support the studio right now:

  • Join our online yoga classes as often as you can
  • Purchase an extra yoga pass (or two) now, even if you use them later – the validity is now 1 year
  • Give a gift voucher to your family and friends (perfect Christmas present!) – here’s how to purchase a gift card online
  • Donate an amount of your choice to directly support us in covering the costs during lockdown – here’s how to do it via our online store

We are also using this time to make some upgrades to the studio premises (painting, decorating), so that it will be all nice and fresh for you when we re-open.
We really love teaching yoga, and your happy smiles on our screens makes our day every time. Thank you for practicing yoga with us!

Looking forward to guiding you on your yoga journey.

Join the Brussels Yoga Mala 2019: join the 108 Sun Salutations for charity

Since 2010, the yoga community in Brussels organizes the Yoga Mala around the Summer Solstice. All participants donate some money and all the proceeds go to a charity. This year the mala will be organised in September, around the Autumn Solstice, on a Saturday morning, 21 September.

Why 108 ? Good question, Shiva Rea has written a beautiful article about it, read it here.

So please join in on Saturday morning, 21 September 2019, as the Yoga community comes together for the 10th time in a celebration of the unity of Yoga to raise money for charity Bru’Zelle, a local NGO helping to fight period poverty.

As we welcome the Autumn Solstice let us offer our gratitude to life by saluting and honouring the Sun. We will practice a Yoga Mala, a prayer in motion of 108 rounds of Surya Namaskara (Sun Salutations).

Sun Salutations_Sivananda YogaThe practice will be a meditative flow, and whether we as individuals are able to do 1 or 108 rounds, the importance lies in our participation and intention – as a collective we will complete the Mala. There will be different teachers leading the rounds of Surya Namaskar, the practice is the Sivananda Hatha Yoga tradition.

Being there together in a spirit of loving-kindness, peace and joy is what it’s all about. And who knows what wonders will come from that…

The event is family-friendly, so children, partners and grandparents are warmly welcome. There will be Yoga for kids & mandala coloring in parallel with the Mala, and other fun activities. Tea and biscuits for after!

You can also make a difference, so come and make it happen together with the Brussels’ yoga community.

Practical information:
Date: Saturday 21 September 2019
Time: 10h30 until approximately 12h00
Venue: Autoworld Museum Mezzanine, Cinquantenaire Park
Cost: EUR 3 Museum entrance fee, plus a donation for charity. The suggested donation is at least EUR 13 (incl. the entrance fee), but we appeal to everyone to give what they can.
What to bring: yoga mat, bottle of water, open heart and lots of energy!
Like the Facebook page & join the event.

  • To register please fill out this form and pay your entrance fee & donation into this bank account: IBAN: BE85 0357 3874 8506. 

Anyone interested in volunteering to help either on the day or in preparations please let us know via email  !

Check out the Sivananda hatha yoga Sun Salutations here:


“O nourishing sun,

Solitary traveller, controller,

Source of life for all creatures, spread your light

And subdue your dazzling splendour

So that I may see your blessed Self.

Even that very Self am I!”

Isha Upanishad 16
