Satyananda Yoga

Satyananda Yoga includes asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing practices), meditation, cleansing practices, chanting and the famous relaxation practice of yoga nidra. It originates from Bihar in North East India, and was started by Swami Satyananda Saraswati. Satyananda Yoga is an overall experience of yoga which is suitable for students of all ages and abilities. A Satyananda Yoga class leaves students relaxed and at ease and gives them a sense of well being.

The main emphasis of Satyananda Yoga is on inner awareness and it encourages the student to find the contentment from within that comes from living yoga. It combats the stresses and strains that come from everyday life and improves the health of body, mind and spirit.

  Swami Satyananda Saraswati 

"Yoga is an ancient system of philosophy, lifestyle and techniques that evolves the whole person, the physical, the vitality, the mind and emotions, wisdom, ethics and a higher quality of relationships, and the realization of the spiritual reality of each of us." - Swami Niranjananda

"Yoga means union. If thousands of people all over the world can be influenced by one thought, one philosophy, then we will have a different society altogether." - Swami Satyananda
