about satya yoga

ABOUT SATYA YOGA

Satya means truthfulness and it comes in a way of life, way of yoga practice. It is only way we can practice yoga, to be true to ourselves.
True yoga is about where your breath starts and beyond that, so eventually meditation and focusing practices and all of those higher practice. We’re doing them to open the body, make ourselves more flexible, stronger, and then we can sit down and we can start to do our breath work. We can do our focusing, we can do our meditation, we can do our mantras and all of those practices. Whatever brings light in our soul and whatever brings love in our heart.

Be true to your self

So really, true yoga is about being true to this body, healthy, being true to this mind, starting to focus, and then starting to do the higher practices.
Yoga begins actually when you start to do practices that are directly connected to the mind to change the quality of the mind. So there is a range of different yoga systems to practice that can deal with addressing that quality of mind aspect. On this retreat we have time to focus on true yoga and its techniques.
We are awakening our highest potential and compassion, of patience, of selflessness in the actions you can try perform in your every day life, all day long. Begin Your journey with us, in this beautiful surrounding.
