About the Instructor

Hacking Happiness with the Yoga SutrasRev. Sumati Govinda was born with an intense desire to realize her true nature, a desire that was nurtured by growing up in Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville. Drawn to meditation, she began practicing around two years old.  Before she entered kindergarten, her passion for the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali ignited. She solidified her path by receiving mantra initiation in 1979 from her guru, Sri Swami Satchidananda. Sumati maintains a healthy balance of worldly and spiritual life. She offers Spiritual Life Coaching and runs a comprehensive wellness program for a local corporation. Sumati, her beloved husband, children and grandchildren call Yogaville home.
