SATYA, Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga Attunement is a body of work created by Tias Little that was designed to complement an asana practice.
The SATYA movements cultivate inner listening and heighten proprioceptive awareness. The exercises are non-weight bearing and involve sliding, gliding and circular movements to reduce myo-fascial holding in the body. The exercises help mobilize the joints, remove fatigue from the body, balance asymmetries and align
the right and left sides of the body. In a totally unique way, 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.
Jyl has completed the SATYA training with Tias and is one of the few instructors certified to teach this work.
