Sam has gone through her own personal transformation, so she can absolutely assure you that if you put in the work a leopard can change  her spots.  “ My mission is to help you break free from the chains that are holding you back.  Which may be low self esteem, fear of failure, listening to the negative voice in your head, escaping your emotions by addictive behaviours instead of learning how to deal with them.  I’m living proof that this programme works, I would love it to work for you too.”


Using the very same tools she is now qualified to teach, Sonia became aware of many outdated patterns of behaviour she engaged in.  Listening to her inner critic, negative self talk and life overwhelm, all no longer served her and Sonia wanted to be free from them.  Through dedicated Sadhana and a discipline to the teachings, she has released these “samskara’s”, and like Sam, has undergone her own personal transformation.  “We often want a quick fix to our difficulties, but I’ve realised that some things can’t be hurried.  The Sattva teachings have inspired me to become self aware, to expand past my comfort zone, to embrace change and grow through it.  I have trained and qualified in these teachings specifically with the intention to help others benefit in the same way I have; personal transformation.”

Our Guru Master Anand Mehrotra

Our Guru (someone who leads us from dark to light), Anandje, is a spiritual master who has brought together all the original teachings of Himalayan Yoga. Merging the teachings from the Vedic and Tantric traditions, as taught by the ancient masters, he has dedicated his life to honouring the pure knowledge and wisdom of the Himalayas, and to protecting the integrity of the powerful techniques contained in these ancient practices.

Anand developed Sattva Yoga as a method through which people of all backgrounds, cultures and experiences can discover and embrace their true nature as expressions of the infinite potential of being. It is a practice relevant for the modern times, yet Sattva Yoga is not just simply a practice. It’s a profound journey of personal evolution that, when committed to, will guarantee to transform an individual’s life. It’s an integrated approach that includes powerful techniques of; pranayama, Tantric Kriyas, Kundalini, Vinyasa flows that channel energy, Chi movements and the Sattva Meditation technique.
