SATYA is Prajna Yoga’s “yin” style practice. All the movements are done on the floor in a flowing fashion, without force. The SATYA movements cultivate inner listening and heighten proprioceptive awareness. Our aim is to counter “sensory-motor amnesia” and to gain awareness in places where there has been numbing or freezing. This awareness is the body’s innate intelligence. By increasing our capacity for sensory awareness, we become more sentient, wakeful beings in the world.

By training the field of our sensory-motor system, by listening and developing a more receptive mind, we tap the body-mind’s innate intelligence and capacity to heal. The exercises are non-weight bearing and involve sliding, gliding and circular movements to reduce myo-fascial holding in the body. The exercises help mobilize the joints, remove fatigue from the body, balance asymmetries and align the right and left sides of the body. The SATYA training, along with yoga postures, involves neural-muscular re-education. Like in vinyasa training, breath is combined with movement in order to deepen the respiratory rhythm. All movements support profound physical rest of the body and prepare for savasana and yoga nidra (the yogic sleep).

Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga Attunement (SATYA )is an integral part of the Prajna Yoga experience. This day long is an introduction to the SATYA work. We review the ways that SATYA begins to organize and release the fascia, balance the right and left sides of the body and orient to mid-line. Time is given to examining the way the lower back is mobilized and strengthened. This course involves practice and study of the foundational movements and map out the ways in which the SATYA compliments vinyasa practice. We will identify the ways in which SATYA is an integral part of mindfulness training and heightens meditative awareness.

Level I – Learn More >

This training lays out the essentials for how to sequence the SATYA movements and how to combine them with asana. We learn how to practice and teach the movements beginning with the simplest forms and leading to greater complexity. We study the healing potential of the movements and their effects on the Five Sheaths. In addition we show how to manually adjust the forms in order to facilitate greater release. Level I is open to all students. Level 1 is a prerequisite for Level II and III.

Advanced SATYA Training Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga Attunement (SATYA) practices compliment asana practice while deeply restoring the body. They open the joint spaces, build sensory-motor awareness, re-educate the neural-muscular system and help develop bi-lateral symmetry.
