    Through Sattva Yoga I have gained the possibility to experience yoga on a new level and as a whole - as Yoga of Life. Before coming to Sattva yoga was mainly a physical activity for me, as I had practiced only asana and pranayama before. Even that had had an great impact on me, because already through these practices I had gotten the opportunity to shift my energy right away. Of course diving deeply into Kriya and experiencing the effects since then on a daily basis makes a huge difference in my life. But actually it was mostly the experience of Gyana, Bhakti and Karma that shifted my awareness of what yoga truly means and is. Everything that I could and can experience through Sattva Yoga touched and touches me on the deepest level possible and just activates that inner wisdom, this connection to truth. So after my experiences at Sattva Yoga Academy I would say that my life is yoga, that I am yoga and that yoga is flowing through me. I am the practitioner and the practice itself, I am the student, the teacher and the teaching, I am the experiencer and the experience.

    This school was amazing. Very deep and thorough in all their approaches. The transfer of yogic and Vedic knowledge and very useful life philosophy was substantial. As well, they use a consolidation/Integration exercise post training that is deep and thorough. It challenges us to really think and embody the understandings of the yogic principles taught at Sattva. I will be returning!

    Truly a profound and heart opening experience. I was searching for something other than the exclusively asana based practices I was finding offered in the United States and Sattva Yoga Academy developed the ancient teachings from their source in a manner most transformational and positive.
