Teachers

Satya Greenstone, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT

Satya Greenstone has been a student of Sri Swami Satchidananda since 1971. She has shared the teachings of Integral Yoga® in many diverse settings with students of all ages and backgrounds and combines a natural, practical, down-to-earth approach to Yoga with a gentle humor. Since 1999 she has been a primary teacher for the 200-hour and the Intermediate Yoga Teacher Training programs. While serving as teacher training coordinator, she helped to develop and teach the first Gentle Yoga Teacher Training program.

She has also developed and teaches training programs in Restorative Yoga, Adaptive Yoga, and Yoga and Meditation for Children. In 2005, she received certification in Therapeutic Yoga and is currently certified by the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT). In June, 2019 she received certification for teaching Yoga for Osteoporosis from Dr. Loren Fishman.

Satya gently adapts the Yoga practices to individual needs and always finds a way to encourage and inspire her students who soon recognize that, for her, yoga is an experience, not a subject for academic study. First and foremost she is a yogini, and her teaching is an extension of the experience gained from her yoga practice. Satya exudes the joy and exemplifies the benefits that come from living the yogic lifestyle and shares that joy and those benefits with her students.

During this practice, the body is placed in gentle, supported asanas or poses. These poses literally hold and support the physical body, while the mental body lets go of stress, worry and tension.

In this state of deep relaxation, the innate intelligence of the body returns and reintegrates the entire system to its natural state of balance and…
