I LOVE it. I've taught yoga to others for over 20 years. When I see someone after a session, inspired, relaxed and out of pain, with a renewed sense of well being, my heart leaps for joy.

    I have been taking private sessions with Satya focusing on breathing and relaxing. She is kind, very aware of my physical limitations and has helped my understanding and awareness of my breath.

  • Janet s

    Kind, professional and extremely knowledgeable!

  • Mary Candlin

    Satya has been my 1 on 1 yoga therapist for the past couple years. She has used her skills to support me through two total knee replacements. Satya used yoga, pranayama, meditation and massage to help me restore my mobility, flexibility, strength and balance as well as providing comfort and encouragement when needed. Satya is so effective because along with her unique skill set her overall program is truly client driven.

  • Penelope Hicks

    Satya is smart, kind, and knowledgeable. She teaches from a place of generosity, and provides a safe and open space to explore connecting with yourself. Her yoga therapy is so helpful in managing stress and anxiety, and in moving, breathing, and feeling better.



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I have my students fill out a health history form before coming to the first session. At the session we sit down and talk about their goals and get to know each other better. We get started with gentle movements and breathing exercises and proceed from there based on the students needs. At the end of the session I guide the student to integrate what they have learned. If needed I email them a few things to do at home. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I was formally trained how to teach yoga and meditation at Shoshoni Yoga Retreat in Rollinsville, CO. (6 year residency program)

I have taken over 1500 hours of yoga teacher trainings over the past 20 years. I began my formal studies in 1997. 

Satya Larrea E-RYT, C-IAYT

How did you get started teaching?

My deep passion for yoga and quelling my anxiety, led me to wanting to help others do the same. By learning how many benefits yoga has for our bodies and minds, I dove into my yoga teacher training program knowing that teaching yoga was exactly what I wanted to do with my life. I also have a background in massage therapy so knowing anatomy helped me a lot. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I especially like to work with people whom I refer to Desk Bound Pro's or Ex Desk Bound Pro's. These are people who get stuck behind a desk and or at a computer for long hours every day. As a result their bodies become painful. 

I also work with people who suffer from Anxiety and Stress. As you can imagine, along with being desk bound, these to areas go hand in hand. Anxiety is something that I've personally managed for over 20 years by breathing, meditation and practicing Hatha Yoga, without the use of perscription medication. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently lead a yoga class at an event for a Women's group for women who are HIV positive. It was a self care event teaching women that it's necessary to take time out to care for their bodies and minds, everday. I'm a big advocate for self care. No matter who you are, you have to take care of yourself and it's a challenge for most of us. We are all in this together and need each others support. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Please find someone who is gentle in their approach who you feel comfortable and safe with. Also, find someone who has experience and someone who walks their talk with yoga.
