Life changing. Sattva taught me so much that I didn't even know that I didn't know! I was exposed to so much wisdom and so much energy. It's very difficult to put into words. Full Review

The program was nothing short of amazing, offering a comprehensive curriculum that delved deep into the roots of yoga philosophy, anatomy, asana practice, and much more. The authenticity of the teaching resonated deeply with me, bridging ancient wisdom with modern practicality in a way that was both enlightening and accessible. The instructors were incredibly knowledgeable and passionate, fostering an environment of growth, support, and community. Each class was meticulously crafted to not only challenge us physically but also to expand our minds and spirits. What set Sattva apart was its commitment to preserving the authentic essence of yoga. It was evident in every lesson, every interaction, and every moment of reflection. The balance between rigorous practice and thoughtful discussion created a rich, immersive experience that encouraged personal exploration and growth. Moreover, the school's emphasis on comprehensive learning meant that we didn't just practice yoga; we lived it. From understanding the intricate details of anatomy to diving into the profound depths of yoga philosophy, the course prepared us to not only be skilled practitioners but also knowledgeable teachers who can carry forward the tradition with integrity and respect.
