As I sit here, in the foothills of the Himalayas, enjoying a cup of Masala Chai tea, feeling the warm sun on my face, listening to the subtle whirl of the river below, I try to find the right words to describe the experience of teacher training here at Sattva Center. The first word that jumps to mind is ‘MAGICAL.’ Sattva Yoga was created and brought to life by Master Teacher Anand Mehrotra. Thru the creation of the practice of Sattva Yoga, so came the creation of Sattva Wellness & Retreat Center, located along a beautiful river, nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas.
Anand Mehrotra, is a wonderful teacher who brings forth the magic and wisdom of the ancient teachings, in a fierce, modern and relevant way. Whether you’re looking to immerse yourself in a 200, 300, or Master Level training, the minute you arrive at Sattva Center, you already know you’re home.
During teacher training, mornings start with Puja Ceremony, to begin the day with reverence and grace. Following Puja, is sunrise meditation by the river. After meditation, we break for Tea and prepare for a Yoga Journey. The practice of Sattva Yoga, is an all encompassing, all-inclusive journey into Self, and trying to give a description with only diminish the powerfulness and sanctity of the experience that occurs.
Afternoons are spent usually sitting by the Bodhhi Tree listening to Master Anand bring to life the ancient teachings.
Each individual experience here at Sattva is unique, but collectively, the energy here is of immense love and joy.
If your reading this and your heart whispers “yes,” then this is the training for you!! Your life will forever be changed.
