Welcome to the ATMA Society!
The ATMA Society is committed to the exploration of holistic well-being through the ancient practice of Bhakti Yoga, the yoga of devotion. In Sanskrit, "Atma" translates to the soul, representing the essence of who we are.
At the ATMA society, we would like you to join us on a journey of emotional and spiritual discovery, emphasizing the cultivation of inner joy and deep connection. When putting the timeless truths of yogic principles into action, you can discover personal growth, boosted well-being, and a stronger sense of purpose along the way.
Tackling student life:
Recognising the unique challenges students face, we focus on topics such as stress and anxiety reduction, building fulfilling relationships, and navigating our rapidly changing world.
