Yoga integrates the understanding of life at every level; beginning with the physical plane. It harmonizes the physical body, through the breath goes deeper to reach the mind. Over time, the practice leads to the realization that fulfillment lies within the body and not without.
Satyananda Yoga Tradition
Satyanada has at its core, the original teachings of the seers and yogis over the ages to address modern lifestyles as formulated 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 like Hatha yoga, Raja Yoga, Karma Yoga, Jnana Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Kriyga Yoga and Yoga Nidra are incorporated into this.
The first phase of Satyananda/Bihar yoga focused on spreading the message of yoga from door to door and shore to shore. The second phase which was launched in 2013 at the World Yoga Convention held in Munger, phase aims to make yoga a lifestyle. The focus has thus shifted from spreading yoga from door to door to practicing yoga on a moment to moment basis – covering both aspects of space and time.
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.
