Satya discovered yoga and meditation in 1993 out of her need to be happy. She was desperate to heal from the depression and anxiety she felt in her mind/body. She was a work study student at an ashram for many years and while “chopping wood and carrying water” she underwent a rigorous training to teach yoga, starting in 1997. Satya currently owns the Whole Yoga Center in Denver and has led numerous yoga teacher training‘s and daylong meditation retreats there, since 2004. Her calling in life is in the healing arts, she’s a body worker with an emphasis on somatics and she’s earned multiple certifications in ayurvedic and yogic studies, massage therapy and Qigong. Satya specializes in teaching embodiment and mindfulness to people who are in recovery from eating disorders and mood and anxiety disorders in a hospital setting. She started sitting with Johann Robbins’s meditation group in 2016 and was introduced to Vipassana Meditation, the Eco Dharma Center and nature practice, she is immensely grateful for RMERC and her deepening relationship to the land.
