Sat Yoga Ashram
Definition - What does Sat Yoga Ashram mean?
The Sat Yoga Ashram, located in the misty mountains of southern Costa Rica, is a wisdom school and spiritual refuge dedicated to transcendence, healing and inner transformation toward "nobility and the unfoldment of one's divine nature." This yogic monastery is also a retreat center and self-sustaining residential community. It is guided by the teachings and presence of the community’s founder, Shunyamurti.
The ashram's patron sage is Sri Ramana Maharshi.
Yogapedia explains Sat Yoga Ashram
Founded in 2009 and operated by the Sat Yoga Institute, the ashram offers many opportunities for participation, including meditation weekends, seven-day retreats and longer immersion programs. Serious seekers are encouraged to attend a formal program to familiarize themselves with the community, and then apply for longer term residence.
Sat Yoga integrates many forms of yoga, but focuses especially on meditation; gyana; inter-subjective ego deconstruction processes; and both traditional and modern understandings of non-duality from both the East and West.
