SYA Edge

Sattva Yoga Academy teachings are the most comprehensive approach to the Yogic teachings in the world. We know what we do and we do it extremely well.

Sattva Yoga Academy offers world-class training from the ancient Vedic sciences of Yoga, Meditation, Ayurveda, and Jyotish (Vedic Astrology). There are many yoga schools and ashrams offering standard, non-differentiating courses and studies in these disciplines. However, Sattva Yoga Academy maintains an edge through the sophisticated, sincere, and worldly approach used by Anand Mehrotra and the Global Faculty at Sattva Yoga Academy.

Courses are meticulously designed to make them relevant to the individual seeker and responsive to global issues of the time, creating leadership on a different level. Teachings have a caliber that attracts an intellectual and professional level of students from different disciplines.
