Santosha Yoga

Find Your Self

You might be surprised to hear that in its original form, Yoga has very little to do with how the body looks or complex poses.
Yoga is actually the word describing the union of mind, body and spirit with the perfect and whole divine form within each of us. This form is sometimes visualised as a bright and still flame symbolising illumination, but for some it is seen in the beauty of nature or some other personal symbol or experience. Everyone has their own way of experiencing and remembering this divine blissful nature.
Through Asana, Pranayama and Dhyana, this nature is achieved through the merging of the previously seperate aspects of our being. In this way we become more true to our Higher Purpose, which is already present in all of us, waiting to unfold.

Missing the Point

Many modern forms of yoga either disregard tradition or have a narrow focus on the physical body to the neglect of developing mind, spirit and way of life.

Santosha Yoga is Different

With deep respect and honour for the Bihar School of Yoga and the teachings of Swami Satyananda Saraswati, Santosha Yoga promotes a wholistic approach to practice and learning including:

  • Learning to control the mind, the breath and the connection between these and the body 
  • Discovering and overcoming limiting beliefs and behaviours which hold you back in life.
  • Lifestyle changes which can promote more balance, peace and success in spiritual life.

Santosha Yoga offers tribute to Swami Jayananda Saraswati who brought this approach to life through the Inner Journeys
School of Yoga in Gippsland.

Yoga can be practiced safely by anyone in a variety of settings.
