Sattva Yoga is an ever-evolving and inclusive practice of meditation, kriya, asana, movement, pranayama, radical aliveness, and timeless wisdom. Sattva Yoga is freedom, movement, depth, stillness, transcendence, joy, compassion, grace, and truth.In Sanskrit, Sattva means whole, complete, balance, and literally essence or truth. That is the path of Sattva Yoga. Sattva Yoga is ancient and fresh at the same time. There is a soft heart with a fierce, strong spine. There is sincerity and humor. Sattva Yoga is a complete path to create an experience of wholeness in the individual and the collective.

Rameen Peyrow and SATTVA Yoga The SATTVA School of Yoga and SATTVA Yoga was founded by Rameen Peyrow as a formal practice of yoga and inspired by a long and ancient lineage of yogic masters. Rameen founded his practice out of one question ("Who am I"), one seat (the seat of meditation), and one mantra (AUM) to point the practitioner onto the spiritual path. Rameen's inspiration for SATTVA Yoga drew upon his roots in meditation - a practice he was initiated into at the age of 5 - and his personal journey with the practices and methods of yoga under the study of his teachers over decades. Out of this came a discipline that was a merging of two ancient paths, Hatha Yoga (the yoga of force or action) and Raja Yoga (the royal yoga focusing on concentration, meditation and absorption). The combination of these two ancient practices culminated in the practice of SATTVA Yoga: a method of cleansing body, breath and mind to attain a state of balance and connect to an authentic experience of self. This is met through physical postures, breathing, meditation and lifestyle, and grounded within the understanding that the practice of self-realization is the most authentic practice of yoga one can ever find.
