Sattva Yoga (as developed by Anand), is ancient and fresh at the same time; a holistic system of teachings from the Himalayan wisdom tradition of Rishikesh, India, long considered to be the birthplace of yoga.
Sattva Yoga is the Unity of Paths. Yoga, which translates to "union" or "yoke," is more than a reference to a series of physical exercises. It is a life practice that includes many paths. Yoga is love. Yoga is union of breath and body, mind and spirit, the human and the infinite.
There are several types of Yoga in the ancient tradition and Sattva Yoga is the unity of all of these paths, not simple, yet a huge toolbox that is inclusive.
Sattva Yoga is a practice that combines meditation, pranayama (breathwork), hatha asana (postures), laya (flow), kriya (intensive "electric" movement), and free dance, to penetrate the energy layers of the body intended to generate a sense of radical aliveness..
This practice aims to invoke freedom, transformation, and access to a more authentic sense of Self, developing a strong fierce spine that allows for a soft heart with sincerity and humor.
This is not typical American-style yoga and you do not have to be a yogi to participate. We only ask that you come with a sense of adventure, a desire to move, an openness to something new, and your enthusiastic presence!
