Hello, we are a center
for integrating yoga, and Thai structural bodywork. Satva Yoga's Thai
structural bodywork combines the best of deep tissue with the best of Thai
massage. We take a holistic approach to yoga and bodywork. Our mission in yoga
is to teach students how to practice by them selves. Our focus is on alignment,
working with feeling and under standing. In yoga and bodywork the main
objective is balance.
Working with correct
body alignment and breath, we can achieve this. Freddy has been a body worker
for more than 30 years and practicing yoga for 38 years. Our classes are small,
so everyone gets our full attention. Our training's are very
informal. The learning experience should be joyful in order to bring out our
One of the
aims of the yoga training is to begin working on ourselves. Increase body
awareness, and ultimately heal ourselves. in order to be good body workers we
must balance our own stuff. physically, emotionally and spiritually. When our
channels are open, we will have the ability to help others.
“To be happy in life we must serve others”
quote from the Dalai Lama.
At Satva we
teach a blend of YOGA - THAI MASSAGE- STRUCTURAL DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE. One of
the main objectives of both Yoga and Bodywork is to create Balance, Phycically,
Energetically, Emotionally, Intellectually and Blissfully. We also believe that
it’s important to develop an individualized yoga practice. One that is specific
to your own personal needs.
We can teach you to gain more understanding of yoga Asana. How to perform
them correctly, and what it may or may not be good for. Gain knowledge, understanding,
and confidence in yourself and in life. We must learn to work on ourselves, and
grow. Than we will be in a better position to help others.
One of the things Yoga and Bodywork have in common in that we must find our
blocks or imbalances, and than clear them. Through the correct practice of Yoga
and Bodywork we become balanced in life. This is our goal. But it cannot be
done for you. Come to Satva Yoga and Bodywork.
Begin the journey. Through the practice of Yoga and Pranayama (breathing
techniques), we gain more body awareness and sensitivity. This is why it is an
amazing way of reaching your full potential in everything that you do. Become

to feel and work from the heart!!!.
