YTT-2022 Yoga Studio Satya Can Help You Get Started with Confidence

Confidence starts from within, though sometimes we lack the confidence to start something new.  It's a lot easier to get swept up in our own chatter and excuses than to create real action.  At Yoga Studio Satya in Colorado Springs, we are sensitive to the anxiety that may surround new students and make every effort to help you become comfortable as you build your confidence and begin your journey into Yoga. Practicing yoga is a great way to develop a healthy foundation for your physical, mental and spiritual well-being.  All it takes to embark on your journey is sign up for a class at Yoga Studio Satya.

True confidence comes from having an in-depth understanding of who you are and what you want – and giving yourself the time for that self-discovery and self-awareness helps you to create this understanding for yourself. Building confidence really starts with accepting yourself just as you are – not comparing yourself to others, or comparing yourself to any other version of you.  It's accepting where you are, right now, knowing that you are participating in your life and improving every day. When you practice yoga with consistency, you begin to develop a deeper relationship with your true self which includes respect, compassion, and love.  This allows you to meet yourself where you are and tend to what you need today, as all things are changing all of the time. 

Yoga is also an incredibly inclusive practice. We teach you to modify the yoga poses as needed, at Yoga Studio Satya, to accommodate every individual, including those who are more advanced and flexible, those who are just starting and have limited mobility, those looking to increase strength and stability, those wanting more mindful practices like meditation, and those with health conditions or impairments . We have several types of classes to choose from for you to find the right fit.  We also offer private sessions at Yoga Studio Satya, whether you're local in Colorado Springs or would like to connect via Zoom, we are your therapeutic studio for all of your wellness needs.

New to Yoga? You'll Fit Right In, Just Be YOU!

It's natural to feel intimidated the first time you enter a Colorado Springs yoga studio, even at Yoga Studio Satya. Remember everyone in the studio also had a “first class," including your guide! We all start somewhere, and at Yoga Studio Satya we have created a safe, inclusive space for you to BeYOU.  One way to gain confidence is to practice at home and slowly incorporate yoga into your lifestyle.  You might enjoy our live streaming options or video on demand membership - START by downloading our app for some FREE content. During an in person class, one of our helpful guides will provide adjustments or assists, upon consent, to help you better align your body, prevent injury, and modify the position for an optimal experience. Overtime, your body and mind connection will 'yoke' so that the language and positions become familiar.  Show up just as you are and be receptive to training your mind and body in new ways, without needing to 'perfect' anything.  This is simply a practice of showing up each day for whatever arises, learning to flow as life comes.  Our lessons go beyond the mat so you have coping skills for stress, grief, anxiety, depression; the cacophony of emotions one experiences throughout the day.  We hope to help you improve your life and learn to manage yourself in relationship with your nature and the world around you.  

* Our classes start on time and doors will be locked when class is in session.  If you're running late, first BREATHE, then check out our online options (live streaming from the comfort of your own home from anywhere in the world) OR our Video on Demand content with a membership.  

Why Yoga?

Yoga is essentially a philosophy and discipline based on an extremely subtle science, which focuses on bringing harmony between mind and body.  The word ‘Yoga’ is derived from the Sanskrit root ‘Yuj’, meaning ‘to join’ or ‘to yoke’ or ‘to unite’. As per Yogic scriptures the practice of Yoga leads to the union of individual consciousness with that of the Universal Consciousness, indicating a perfect harmony between the mind, body, and nature (creation).  According to modern scientists, everything in the universe is just a manifestation of the same quantum firmament. One who experiences this oneness of existence is said to be in yoga, having attained to a state of freedom referred to as mukti, nirvana or moksha. Thus the aim of Yoga is Self-realization, to overcome all kinds of sufferings leading to 'the state of liberation' (Moksha) or ‘freedom’ (Kaivalya). Living with freedom in all walks of life, health and harmony, including our planet.  

Yoga is a 5,000-year-old discipline from India. It was developed as a practice to unite the mind and body. There are many branches of yoga. All yoga styles can help balance your body, mind, and spirit, but they achieve it in various ways.  Some yoga styles are intense and vigorous. Others are relaxing and meditative. No matter which type you choose, yoga is a great way to stretch and strengthen your body, focus your mind, and relax your spirit.  Yoga health benefits include reduced blood pressure, increased focus, a deeper spiritual mind/body connection, more energy, and better sleep at night. Many elements of yogic philosophy, such as loving kindness, compassion and non-judgment, may also influence an individual lifestyle as they adopt healthier habits and make more positive, life-affirming choices.

Finding the Right Yoga for You

If you are new to yoga, you may be wondering what practice to try.  If you have never practiced yoga before, there are several yoga classes that could be a good place to start; such as Beginner Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Yoga Wall, Private Yoga Therapy, or perhaps you fancy a Sound Therapy Session?

At Yoga Studio Satya, we are happy to work with new students and help find just the right class to meet you where YOU are.  Finding the right instructor is another important part of beginning yoga. Our Colorado Springs teachers are registered with Yoga Alliance and/or have completed 200 hours or 500 hours of training at an approved studio. You can practice with confidence knowing that our teachers are specifically trained to not only help you progress in your practice, but also to help prevent your body from being injured. While some instructors may lead classes in a brief chant, share philosophy, explore mudras (gestures), or guide you through a beneficial breathing practice, come curious and open to try something new.  This is how Tantra works; it's through our own lived experience can we truly KNOW.  The spiritual part of Yoga is entirely up to you!  BeYOU!

Yoga for Beginners

Yoga has the power to calm the mind and strengthen the body. Don’t be intimidated by yoga terminology, fancy yoga studios and complicated poses. Yoga is for EVERYONE.  Much of the yoga practiced in the West today focuses strongly on the physical postures (asana), but it’s important to remember that physical postures are just one aspect of yoga. The practice, as a whole, is much more profound and simple - we are working with much more than the body.  Through consistent practice, we awaken to the subtler aspects; like different layers of being - physical body, energy body, mind body, wisdom body and bliss body.  

Yoga means Union - to bring two opposites together and find the harmony that exists within the balance.  Example: Breath - Inhale and Exhale are opposites, yet when you place a mindful presence to it, you can investigate where you're working too hard, where you're not putting in the right effort, when/how you get distracted, when/how you become present, and eventually find a natural rhythm of flow that is sustainable.  As we return to our own essential nature or rhythm, we achieve a state of Yoga.   

Yoga Studio Satya in Colorado Springs are here to support YOU.  We all have to start somewhere, and we appreciate your courage to step onto the mat.  By doing so, you have the opportunity to create the inner world that sparkles and shines outwards.  This is the magic that can change worlds!

Yoga for Seniors


As we age, it seems that we are always told about the importance of keeping up with our physical health and brain health. You know the saying "use it or lose it",  so how can Yoga help?

Yoga is a great form of low-impact exercise, and is gentle on your joints while also slowly increasing your flexibility to fight back against stiff muscles and pesky arthritis. Through fluid movement and focused breathing, you can also lower your blood pressure, which in turn can lower your risk for cardiovascular and kidney disease. Yoga is a wonderful stress reliever too. You will find that you are so focused on the moves and your breathing that you are only aware of your surroundings as opposed to the thoughts that were once jumping around in your head. Meditation can help calm your mind as well, reducing anxiety and depression, and serving as a coping mechanism when you start to feel overwhelmed.  Gaining strength and balance can help prevent falling and reduce injury, and improved sleeping habits will benefit your immune system.  Yoga is an incredible and sustainable practice that adapts with you throughout your life.     


Benefits of Yoga for Seniors

Though our classes and guides are amazing, a public class may not fit everyone.  We offer private sessions to tailor the experience for what YOU need.  You may be recovering from surgery or have experienced trauma and grief...whatever personal afflictions are occurring, Yoga can provide tools for more understanding, patience and acceptance.  We can address pain patterns, holistic nutrition, integrated therapy, functional movement or simple daily practices for you to live your best life!  If you're interested in scheduling your private session, call (719) 203.4525 or email us at [email protected].
