THE TEACHINGS AND TRADITION

Teachings at the SATTVA YOGA ACADEMY are holistic, integrative, and deeply transformative for all aspects of human existence. The ever-evolving practice at the core of the teachings is both ancient and modern. Rooted in the rich Vedantic and Tantric traditions of the Himalayas, the teachings integrate radical and relevant wisdom with meditation, breathwork, techniques, deepening connection and devotion through Laya and Bhakti practices, the healing power of sound, free movement, and Hatha Yoga asanas.

Sattva Teachings are not separate from life, but rather are a practical, systematic science of enlightenment and evolution of consciousness. Thus, Sattva practice goes well beyond the yoga mat and includes and infuses all areas and aspects of life. Students experience radical transformation and learn how to experience enlightened living.

The trainings at Sattva Yoga Academy are not limited to any one aspect of Yoga. To study only one aspect of Yoga in isolation would not represent the tradition at all. And so the teachings at SATTVA YOGA ACADEMY are taught as an integrated whole that includes all the avenues, all the channels, of the teachings.

SATTVA MEDITATION TECHNIQUE

Meditation is a fundamental foundation practice. The Sattva Meditation Technique is a Kriya-based, Mantra-based system. It is a seated meditation practice, a technique stemming from the Himalayan Yog-Vedantic Tradition. Sattva Meditation Technique is a comprehensive, simple and effective technique which consists of Breathwork, Kriya and Mantra. When practiced 20-30 minutes twice daily, it can benefit all aspects of oneself.

AN INTEGRATIVE PRACTICE

Sattva YOGA is an integrative practice of opening mind and heart to the brilliance of life. The Sattva Yoga practice offers you tools and techniques to address and transform all layers of the human body. 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. The teachings of Sattva Yoga Academy have been developed in the Himalayas and has now spread around the world to every continent.

SATTVA YOGA ACADEMY has the yogic philosophy woven into all the teachings and offerings with the aim of creating a diverse group of yoga leaders, visionaries, and entrepreneurs. We pride ourselves on a quality approach assessing the readiness of a student before issuing their certification. There is a deep focus on the state of consciousness of our participants. We are devoted to bringing the most sincere, connected and evolved teachers forward to the world.

Every Sattva graduate is unique in that he or she is a master in their own right – inspiring and transforming people through their work, their teachings, and their presence. They are all leaders and at the same time a deep part of a growing awakened global community.

Sattva teachers are first and foremost humble and graceful students of Yoga who are committed to growth, evolution, and expansion in all areas of their existence. They serve in many ways. Sattva teachers teach and inspire through their own example by leading purposeful lives, serving and leading unconditionally and without a title. As the teachings at the SATTVA YOGA ACADEMY cover all aspects of life, Sattva teachers can share the wisdom of Sattva in innumerable ways. Many graduates of the SATTVA YOGA ACADEMY share Sattva teachings while serving in their roles as life coaches, trainers, meditation instructors, yoga teachers, retreat facilitators, company leaders in business and industry, healers, peacemakers, artists, designers, and engineers. Sattva teachers show up consciously wherever they are and have a sense of responsibility and deep compassion for and unity with the entire universe, especially all beings and our planet. Regardless of how Sattva teachers choose to express the teachings, they gracefully embody the very essence of Yoga – living in Truth, Consciousness, and Bliss.
