CULTIVATING LOVINGKINDNESS & COMPASSION
Hi there, I’m Tiaga Nihal Kaur and welcome to Metta Yoga. I’m a Buddhist Yogi, living in Oslo in Norway. I’m 33 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 in 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.
METTA YOGA`S MISSION
So how did it all begin? 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, myself which resulted in the birth of mettayoga.net
”I offer you peace. I offer you love. I offer you friendship. I see your beauty. I hear your need. I feel your feelings. My wisdom flows from the Highest Source. I salute that Source in you. Let us work together for unity and love.” ~ Gandhi
My mission is to cultivate well-being and with 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 of mindful activities of the day to day life so we can live in good health.

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
