What is SATTVA Yoga?
SATTVA Yoga, founded by Rameen Peyrow, uses four guiding principles of the body, breath, mind and stillness, with Hatha Yoga as our foundation.
Body is the ultimate playing field of the experience of life. Our internal reality filters through the body to meet external reality. The practice of SATTVA Yoga teaches the body of the practitioner to develop an awareness necessary to seamlessly move between your internal and external realities. The SATTVA Yoga practice increases the vibration of body and mind, enabling the practitioner to access his or her higher potential.
Breath is the root of our intelligence for all of life. SATTVA Yoga puts a significant emphasis on breathing or pranayama as the key to deeper understanding and control of the nervous system, thoughts and emotions.
Mind is concentrated and absorbed within the action of the still seat, thereby establishing the awareness to be focused upon one point, which is meditation. The practice of meditation in SATTVA Yoga is a profound way to understanding the mind and its tendencies.
Stillness is when the body becomes the breath, the breath becomes the thought and the space within the mind becomes stillness or true potential. When the mind is engaged within the action of the body and with the steady rhythm of the breath, the mind becomes still. This will allow the practitioner to experience being completely absorbed within the self.
