The Tradition

Yoga integrates the understanding of life at every level – beginning with the physical plane. It harmonizes the physical body and then, through the breath goes deeper to affect the mind. Over time, the practice leads to the realization that fulfillment lies within the body and not without.

Satyananda / Bihar Yoga Tradition has at its core, the original teachings of the seers and yogis over the ages interpreted and formulated to address modern lifestyles by Swami Satyananda, the founder of the Bihar School of Yoga. This gentle, yet powerful system addresses the person as a whole, along with his environment and with yoga as the central theme – a way of life.

Many branches of yoga are incorporated in to this system disciplines from Hatha yoga, Raja Yoga, Karma Yoga, Jnana Yoga, Bhakti Yoga and Yoga Nidra.

The Satyananda Yoga tradition is committed to integrating spiritual growth as an essential aspect of yoga. This is done in a contemporary way, giving a fresh and dynamic approach to the spiritual path, which resonates with modern day living.
