Welcome to Satyananda Yoga® in Greece


Satyanandashram Hellas is a non-profit association with a residential ashram near Athens and associated city centres, offering yoga sessions, seminars and yoga instructor training in the tradition of Satyananda Yoga® as taught by the Bihar School of Yoga. It is a style uniquely adapted to the needs of modern society. It is suitable for all ages, body types, and levels of fitness and health.

Satyananda Yoga is a system of yoga developed by Swami Satyananda Saraswati and his lineage, which incorporates practices derived from the ancient and traditional sources. Satyananda Yoga practices include asanas (postures) to balance the body and mind through the physical body, pranayamas (breathing practices) to work on the energy body, and meditation to calm and focus the mind. It also takes a broader outlook to encourage a yogic lifestyle.

Satyananda Yoga comprises a variety of branches of yoga, which include:


Hatha Yoga to balance the two energies in our body to overcome the dissipation and distractions of the body and prana, in order to attain peace, balance and harmony. Hatha yoga comprises of 5 components. These are purification techniques or shat karmas, asanas, pranayama, mudras and bandhas.

Raja Yoga is the science of the mind. The aim and aspiration of Raja yoga is to manage the vrittis or fluctuations of the mind. The practices of Raja yoga aim to overcome the dissipation and distractions of the mind and refine the mental energies to expand one's awareness, in order to experience one's Self.

Other branches of yoga include Jnana Yoga (the path of knowledge), Bhakti Yoga (the path of heart and emotion), Karma Yoga (the path of service), and Kriya Yoga (practices for awakening kundalini)

The Satyananda approach addresses the whole person, not just the body.

The practices of Satyananda Yoga promote an integral, holistic lifestyle, and a balance between the energies of the Head, Heart and Hands.

Head refers to the mind: intellect, thoughts, reason, cognition, perception awareness, etc.

Heart refers to feelings, emotions, desires, love etc.

Hands refer to physical action and performance.

According to Swami Satyananda

The head, heart and hand must synchronize if you want to realize your goals, whether they are material, spiritual or both.

Through the emphasis on awareness, one learns to discover their own personality, nature and strengths, and how to transform their weaknesses into strengths, so as to develop the inherent dynamism that exists within each and every one of us.

Positive changes take place naturally as a consequence of regular practice with full awareness, rather than by forcing the mind and body to their limits. Scientific research and experiments conducted throughout the world now scientifically prove the benefits of Satyananda Yoga on the body and the mind.

Satyananda Yoga practices comprise four stages:

Yoga Practice, where one practices yoga for one's own needs, requirements and benefit.

Yoga Sadhana, where one moves from the practices of yoga, to the practice of yogic sadhana, which is sustained and regular practice for the deepening of one's experience of yoga. With yogic sadhana, one's goal is defined by the tradition of yoga to improve and transform one's nature and personality, and for the harmonization of the grosser and subtler levels of one's being.

Yogic Lifestyle is when one incorporates the yogic practices into their daily lifestyle to improve one's life. Here yoga becomes a lifestyle, where the body, mind and emotions are balanced and harmonized.

Yogic Culture is when one cultivates the faculties of the head, heart and hands, and yoga becomes a natural expression of life.Each stage takes the practitioner into a deeper experience of their body, mind and emotions and progressively brings about a better understanding of one's self, others and the world around them.
