Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga Attunement (SATYA 2)
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. SATYA 2 is the second course of the three-part 150-hour SATYA certification training. Please note, in order to be eligible for this training, you must have completed SATYA 1.
SATYA (Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga Attunement)
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 2 Course of Study
SATYA 2 brings further depth to the practice and study of the SATYA movements. In this course students will learn how to design SATYA sequences and assist movements to facilitate greater myo-fascial release.
• How to use SATYA movements to prepare the body for asana.
• How to design SATYA sequences to release specific areas of the body (e.g., lower back, hips, shoulders, and neck).
• How to manually assist the SATYA movements to stretch the myo-fascia.
• How to design SATYA sequences that include both SATYA and asana.
• How to give facilitated assists to stretch the connective tissues within the SATYA movements.
• How SATYA supports pulsatory rhythms in the body.
• How SATYA works as a kind of “visceral manipulation”.
• How SATYA supports circulation of blood and lymph.
• How to use savasana in SATYA.
• Dharma practice: Working with Hindrances.
To be eligible for SATYA 2, students must have completed SATYA 1.
