The word Sattva means truth, balance, and wholeness. Sattva Yoga is ancient and fresh at the same time. It is at the core of who we truly are. Sattva Yoga works with Kriya energy to generate electricity. Kriyas combine repetitive movements through mudras, mantras, and pranayama to create a moving meditation, that helps facilitate evolution in the body, mind, and spirit. The Sattva practice can awaken and transform, leading to greater harmony, expansion, and liberation. There are no levels in Sattva Yoga. Rather, each class welcomes each student to arrive as they are, listen to the needs of their bodies and minds in any given moment, and enjoy practicing together.
Sattva Yoga is developed and founded by Anand Mehrotra at the Sattva Yoga Academy in Rishikesh, India, the birthplace of yoga. Sattva Yoga teachers have studied directly with Anand in India.
