Why choose Santodanta School of Yoga?
Welcome to the Santodanta School of Yoga, where we embrace and harmonize the diverse paths of yoga to create a holistic journey of transformation.
At the core of our training lie the foundational elements of yoga
Asanas: the art of postures;
Pranayamas: the science of breath;
Meditation: the gateway to inner stillness.
However, our mission transcends the confines of the yoga mat. We believe in the experience and application of yoga in every facet of life, transforming individuals into vessels of radiant energy.
Designed for self-motivated yoga practitioners, this synthesis-oriented journey provides a profound platform to integrate life's diversity under the encompassing tree of yoga.
We empower our teachers with a profound understanding that extends beyond physical postures. The Santodanta Yoga Flow becomes a way of life as we guide our practitioners to delve deep into meditation, master advanced asanas, and embrace service to the world.
What sets us apart is our dynamic approach to yoga, which blends seamlessly with everyday existence. As you embark on this journey, you'll not only connect with our esteemed teachers but also become part of our Sunlight & Yoga community, offering year-round practice and study support.

From Our Graduates
click image for reflection
"This is by far one of the most meaningful pieces of paper that I've ever received. To some, it may signify an academic or professional accomplishment, and that's understandable. However, it represents something completely different to me. For the first time ever, I was open to experience what it's like to feel safe in my own body. I'm not only talking about physically either; safety was also cultivated mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. As a Black man in America, that's something I'll be forever grateful for as I continue deepening my practices of yoga, breathwork, and meditation. To anyone out there who's considering this as a potential pathway to internal healing, please give yourself permission to explore the endless possibilities. I'll never be the same person because I'm finally content with simply being myself. There's no amount of money, status, or worldly possessions that can match this depth of awareness and appreciation. Namaste 🙏 -Julius
