Hi There, I’m Tiaga Nihal Kaur and welcome to Metta Yoga.
Through the journey of self with Yoga as my tool, I want to share loving-kindness and spread the light on how Yogic Technology can unite the Mind, Body, and Soul. The sole purpose of Metta Yoga is to raise awareness on mindful activities of the day to day life so we can live in good health.
I have been blessed in this life with the spirit name Tiaga Nihal Kaur, which means the sacred Lioness who is able to let go of the attachments of the material world in favor of the sweet bliss of her Beloved.
I’m a Buddhist Yogi, living in Oslo in Norway. I’m 32 years old and currently, I’m studying to become a Kundalini Yoga Teacher. I’m enrolled in a two year, Teacher Training education at the moment in Stockholm, Sweden. I’m on my second year now and I can’t believe I’m soon to be a Yoga Teacher. I have dreamt of becoming a Yoga teacher and serve to help people that struggle with Mental Health, such as Social Anxiety and Depression. That is my main reason why I started practicing Yoga in the first place. To help myself. Now I want to continue sharing my knowledge and my insights with you on this blog. About a couple of years ago I started reading about Metta (Loving-kindness) which was a meditation on bringing the awareness of self-love and loving-kindness towards everyone around me, which resulted in the birth of mettayoga.net
Metta is a Sanskrit word which means loving-kindness. Metta refers to that which has good will. True metta is devoid of self-interest. It evokes within a warm-hearted feeling of fellowship, sympathy, and love, which grows boundless with practice and overcomes all social, religious, racial, political and economic barriers.
Metta is indeed a universal, unselfish and all-embracing love.
May all beings be happy.
May they live in safety and joy.
All living beings,
Whether weak or strong,
Tall, stout, average or short,
Seen or unseen, near or distant,
Born or to be born,
May they all be happy.
– from the Metta Sutta, Sutta Nipata I.8
Why did I start with Yoga in the first place? Read my first blog post “Yoga The Perfect Companion” to know me on a more personal level.
If you love Yoga, learning more about yourself, and cultivate loving-kindness, you`ll feel right at home here.
Learning to love, live and forgive.
