WHAT IS SATYA?
Satya is truthfulness.
Yoga is a philosophy, a way of life. When we, in the western world, think of yoga, we typically think of stretching, bending the body in contortionist movements. But yoga is so much more than that. Yoga invites us to reconnect with our most inner being in a loving way. It’s about connecting with our higher power, bringing us to a deeper understanding and appreciation of the intricacies of life.
Satya is the second yama in Patanjali’s Ashtanga yoga path. What the heck is a yama? The yamas are ethical restraints and are the first step of the eight-limbed path to enlightenment laid out in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
Satya is a restraint from falsehood or a commitment to truth. Being truthful is so much more than ‘not lying.’ Being truthful means being transparent, clear, open, and genuinely honest- to others and yourself.
If we live in a truly open and honest way with vulnerability and integrity, then we can understand and experience a greater truth around us.
Taking it a step further, it’s understanding what your truth is. It’s about taking the time to figure out what that means and looks like for you. It’s your journey, this is your truth.
At Satya Yoga & Barre Studio, our hope is through movement, you will gain a deeper understanding of self. Our hope is you will feel at home on your mat, and at home in your body. ॐ
