Sri Swami SatyanandaSaraswati (1923-2009) developed this form of yoga meditation incorporating ancient and traditional practices as well as information gleaned from modern medical-physiotherapy. A guru and yoga master in both India and the West, his teachings are propagated inside India as the Bihar School of Yoga and outside India as the Satyananda Yoga tradition.
There is an emphasis on awareness and practitioners are encouraged to learn about all aspects of their personality through Yoga. Change is a process that takes place naturally as a consequence of regular practice with full awareness, rather than by forcing the mind and body beyond its limit.
Yoga classes and meditation classes are held by Sri Sudhir an accomplished yoga teacher trained at the Bihar School of Yoga (Satyananda) with over 10 years of experience and SmtHema an experienced yoga teacher trained at Svyasa( Swami Vivekananda Yoga AnusandhanaSamsthana ) with over 15 years of experience.
Satyananda Yoga looks on the myriad traditional Indian yogic practices with equal vision, and acknowledges the validity of all of their methods for spiritual development. More gentle than some popular forms of yoga in the West, the Satyananda system incorporates the whole person, not just the body.
