Satya Gita is a long-time, devoted practitioner and teacher of yoga. In her more than 20 years of practice, she has studied many forms of yoga, including Jivamukti, Integral, Ashtanga, Standing Wave, Forrest, and Anusara. Born in Oslo and raised in Trondheim Norway, she studied dance at The London Contemporary Dance School and on Africa’s Ivory Coast before moving to New York to study and teach at Jivamukti. She was also certified at the Integral Yoga Institute and studied Standing Wave.
Satya then created and implemented a yoga program for Harbin Hot Springs, an internationally known retreat center in California. During this time, she founded her own teaching style called Anahatha Yoga, which utilizes physical postures and alignment to open energetic dimensions and pathways in the body. Preparing the body in this way opens the student’s awareness to more subtle dimensions of Being in an embodied way. She has been teaching and developing this form for 18 years, as well as training and certifying others in the approach. She continues to offer workshops using Anahatha yoga to help students deepen in themselves.
In addition to her immersion in yoga, Satya has studied and performed as a professional dancer and is a licensed bodyworker skilled in many modalities. She has trained in Amanae (a body-based emotional release method) and other personal transformation work, including more than 10 years of training in the Diamond Approach.
You will find that there is an easy rapport with Satya because she brings delight to her teaching, as well as personal contact, humor, and lots of love and compassion.
Satya is currently based in Oakland, California, and leads yoga classes locally and yoga retreats around the country and internationally. Check out her current teaching schedule or book a private session today!
