Reverend 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 with her father around 2 years old. Before she entered kindergarten, her passion for the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali was 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 is a Certified Yoga Therapist and an Integral Yoga® Interfaith Minister, and she holds a bachelor’s degree in Nursing. Sumati and her family are founding members and current residents of Yogaville.
