Sattva in Sanskrit means whole.
That is the path of Sattva Yoga. Sattva Yoga is ancient and fresh at the same time. There is a soft heart with a fierce, strong spine. There is sincerity and humor. Sattva Yoga is a complete path to create an experience of wholeness in the individual and the collective. Sattva Yoga was developed in the Himalayas over a decade ago, and has now spread around the world to the United States, Canada, Norway, Russia, South Africa, and elsewhere.
Sattva Yoga includes ancient yogic techniques as well as current evolutionary practices to create a clear path for the individual to experience a full and joyous life. Sattva Yoga classes are ever-evolving and inclusive. They include meditation, breath work, hatha postures, vinyasa flows, kriyas, mantras, free movement, and wisdom. There are no levels in Sattva Yoga. Rather, each class welcomes each student to arrive as they are, listen to the needs of their bodies and minds in any given moment, and enjoy practicing together.
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. Sattva Yoga absorbs ever new ways of being. Sattva Yoga is alive.
On the path of Sattva Yoga, individuals live life as a practice. A Sattva Yogi is always a student, even as a teacher. A Sattva Yogi is committed to the path, 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 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.
