"Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the Self"
About Sattva Yoga
Sattva in Sanskrit means whole and that is the path of Sattva Yoga. Sattva Yoga is one of the most comprehensive approaches to yoga in the world today. With its roots in the timeless Vedantic and Tantric Traditions, Sattva Yoga was developed in the Himalayas after years of study and research. Sattva Yoga incorporates all essential practices and teachings of yoga in a radically holistic and powerful way. The practice incorporates contemporary evolution in science and mind-body research.
The Sattva Yoga path offers a unique and potent practice that includes all aspects of Yoga. Both Hatha static postures and dynamic Vinyasa flows, powerful Pranayama (breath work techniques), Kundalini Kriyas (coming from the tantric tradition), Naad Practices (the use of sound as a tool for transformation and healing, including the use of mantras and music), Meditation (all different techniques of meditation with their different impact and purpose), tantric transformative practices, chanting, freedom movement/dance and radical wisdom.
These practices are designed to awaken each practitioner to their True nature. They increase strength, build vitality and create mental clarity. They help raise our consciousness state and enable us to live a life full of joy and possibility. The Sattva Yoga practice meets you where you are at. From the beginner to a seasoned practitioner it provides a complete and powerful pathway to Self Mastery and a radically alive life.
It is a practice of opening the mind and heart to the brilliance of life. The Sattva Yoga practice offers you tools and techniques to address and transform all 5 layers (Koshas) of the human body. Annamaya Kosha (outermost layer, body of food,muscular-skeletal structure with other organ systems), Pranamaya Kosha (Body of Energy, subtle energetic flows within and without) , Manamaya kosha (body of thought, feelings and emotion), Gyanmayakosha (body of belief systems, conditioning and innate wisdom) , Anandmaya Kosha ( body of bliss, love, connection, silence). A Sattva Yogi learns and masters practical techniques that align all the layers of his/her being.
Sattva Yoga is a complete path to create an experience of wholeness in the individual and the collective. Sattva Yoga is the experience of both stillness and movement existing at the same time. Sattva Yoga is the experiencing and sharing of liberation and freedom on every level of our existence.
On the path of Sattva Yoga, individuals live life itself as a practice. A Sattva Yogi is always a student, even as a teacher. A Sattva Yogi is committed to the path and a sincere practitioner. Sattva Yoga is a way of living by example.
Sattva Yoga cares deeply about coming together to have a sense of community of truth, a sense of sacred relationship within the community. The community can be stronger than individuals when we tap into each other’s capacity to evolve. Sattva Yoga also cares deeply about environmental consciousness; Sattva Yogis have a sense of responsibility for our planet and all creatures, a deep compassion for all beings.
Sattva Yoga is freedom, movement, depth, stillness, transcendence, joy, compassion, grace, and truth. Sattva Yoga is the experience of non-duality, where both stillness and movement exist at the same time.
Sattva Yoga is the experiencing and sharing of liberation and freedom on every level of our existence. It is coming together for that common purpose and to end the conflict in our lives.
Sattva Yoga includes and transcends all branches of yoga, it is simultaneously a whole and a part, and by this fact of the coming together a new layer of intelligence is occurring. Sattva Yoga absorbs ever new ways of being. Sattva Yoga is alive.
