Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga Attunement (SATYA 3)
Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga Attunement (SATYA), created by Tias Little, is Prajna Yoga’s “yin” style practice. All movements complement asana training, and guide students away from “doing” to “being”. Yoga students and teachers, mind-body therapists and people in the healing arts benefit from this training. Join us for one or more of our SATYA immersions on your way to becoming a certified Prajna Yoga SATYA teacher.
In a totally unique way, the SATYA practice opens doorways into the interior, providing new pathways of perception and feeling. It guides students away from “doing” movement and toward sensing, receiving and “being” movement. As an adjunct to yoga practice, somatic awareness leads to embodied wisdom.
SATYA is Prajna Yoga’s “yin” style practice. All the movements are done on the floor in a flowing fashion, without force. The SATYA movements cultivate inner listening and heighten proprioceptive awareness. This awareness is the body’s innate intelligence. By increasing our capacity for sensory awareness, we become more sentient, wakeful beings in the world. The exercises are non-weight bearing and involve sliding, gliding and circular movements to reduce myo-fascial holding in the body.
The SATYA training, along with yoga postures, involves neural-muscular re-education. Like in vinyasa training, breath is combined with movement in order to deepen the respiratory rhythm. All movements support profound physical rest of the body and prepare for savasana and yoga nidra (the yogic sleep).
SATYA 3 further investigates the therapeutic benefits of SATYA on the various systems of the body. SATYA 3 students design and fulfill a 10-hour practicum, using SATYA as a therapeutic modality.
- The effects of SATYA on the cranio-sacral system, the eyes and the brain’s visual center.
- How SATYA is preparation for pranayama by strengthening the intercostal muscles.
- SATYA and the effects on the autonomic nervous system.
- The ways that SATYA works with the vestibular system of the inner ear.
- How SATYA therapeutically benefits muscular skeletal strain and dysfunction.
- The benefits of SATYA on trauma held in the body.
- How to utilize SATYA when working therapeutically with individual clients.
To be eligible for SATYA 3, students must have completed SATYA 1 and 2.
Upon completion of this course, you will receive a Yogacampus Certificate of Completion for the 5-day intensive (30 hours).
To become a SATYA teacher, all SATYA courses are required – please see the Prajna Yoga website for further information on the certification process: https://www.prajnayoga.net/yoga-training/satya

What our students say
The whole workshop was fantastic. The asana sequences really helped my SI-joint, my poses have become increasingly aligned and fluid. I most liked Tias' humble, honest, wholehearted and non-biased, non-dogmatic approach. It's been very healing to be taught by someone who teaches from the heart, like Tias.
