I became more in touch with my feelings

After some years of postponing the decision to take yoga classes I finally decided to go for weekly private classes with Satty. My initial thought was to improve my flexibility for running, but because of the meditation part I also gradually became better in touch with my feelings, stimulating me to follow a path of personal growth. Satty is very mindful of my needs, her tea is delicious and we also have a lot of fun and good conversations (in English). I would really recommend Satty as a yoga teacher and she’s a wonderful person as well.

Het is een moment in de week die mij op de been houdt in de hectiek van de rest van die week

Al jaren yogalessen uitgesteld, af en toe wat uitgeprobeerd, maar dat bleek iedere keer niks. Ondanks de ontmoediging toch weer geprobeerd en contact gelegd met Satty. Een wereld ging voor me open! Yogalessen kunnen dus toch fijn en bemoedigend zijn. Zelfs gezellig, haha.

Het verwondert me iedere keer weer hoe goed Satty weet aan te voelen wat ik nodig heb en soepel weet haar programma aan te passen. Het is heel makkelijk open te zijn bij haar, maar ze is zeker niet soft! Ze laat je gewoon ploeteren, maar altijd op een leuke en ongedwongen manier en met veel humor! Van begin tot eind zet ze alles in voor jou. Dat is een gave. Het is een moment in de week die mij op de been houdt in de hectiek van de rest van die week.

It’s been life changing for me

Fab vinyasa flow sessions with SattyYoga. Satty’s zoom classes are in English so if any UK or US, or bilingual friends or family want to join, I would highly recommend Satty for yoga, it’s been life changing for me. Years of dodgy knees and multiple operations meant I was sore, stiff and in pain, now I can sit cross legged, kneel, stand on 1 leg and basically am fitter than I was in my 30s. Yoga for life now 🙂

Satty has made me connect with myself physically and mentally

I had the opportunity to introduce myself to yoga thanks to Satty yoga/meditation/stretching classes that she offered through the lockdown. Satty has made me connect with myself physically and mentally. She makes this amazing connection with people and transports you into a peaceful and quiet time with yourself but also she can take you through exercises to work parts of your body that need stretch and care. Also Satty makes me smile and when an instructor makes you smile in a relaxing way for me is that is a sign of joy.

I seriously love working out with Satty!

Satty designs workouts for every level. In my case I really like to be challenged at an advanced level. In a regular class she stills knows how to personalise exercises and focus on what is needed. For me she designs total mind-body classes which combine strengthening and stretching poses.

Satty challenges me to vigorously wring out my body and restore its balance with deep breathing and meditation. Feeling great and grounded afterwards. It’s not only the workout why I joined yoga with Satty. It’s also her style of teaching and the small classes.

The combination of a qualified professional with lots of humor and really easy going, who can explain the mechanics of the poses and what they entail is really valuable to me. And sometimes I do bring my kids (primary school age) along for a private class. They love it … Already looking forward to my next class:)

Satty has a really good sense to feel what I need during the class

Last year I was looking for a yoga class. After studying Satty’s website I felt I needed to join a class.

After about a half year taking classes on and off I was looking for more regularity in my practice. And I prefer them doing 1 to 1 so I started with private sessions.

Due to the regularity and the private sessions soon I felt the benefits of yoga. The combination of meditation awareness and building strength was what I was looking for and something I really needed. Satty has a really good sense to feel what I need during the class.

Through her experience of yoga, she knows how to manage her classes and how to adjust them last minute according to needs / requirements during the class. Her adjustments of the yoga poses are always clear and make you aware of your body and how to improve your poses.

I really enjoy the classes with Satty and I feel so much more grounded.

Satty has helped in providing new techniques to address and work through certain emotions and thought patterns

I’ve been attending Satty’s yoga classes regularly since October 2017 and have joined 2 workshops since.

In my experience, the workshops offer a warm, safe place to explore certain emotions and thought patterns that are triggered in our minds and our bodies.  Satty has helped in providing new techniques to address and work through those patterns – for example through journaling, meditating and certain breathing techniques.  This has helped me in embracing the positive and learning to better respond rather than react to the negative, so thank you Satty for helping me find peace in the chaos.

Satty bouwt haar lessen zorgvuldig op en doet dat op een heel plezierige manier

De drempel om naar yoga te gaan was hoog voor mij. Ik had eerder al wat ervaring opgedaan in yoga klasjes waar ik mij als man altijd wat verloren en houterig voelde. Daarom ben ik blij dat ik nu samen met mijn echtgenote privéles krijg van Satty. Zij past haar lessen aan aan jouw niveau en gaandeweg ervaar ik, naast steeds meer plezier in yoga, ook de progressie. Satty bouwt haar lessen zorgvuldig op en doet dat op een heel plezierige manier. Ik voel mij tijdens haar lessen helemaal comfortabel, ondanks dat mijn lichaam behoorlijk uitgedaagd wordt. Satty heeft daarnaast ook een goed gevoel voor humor, gewoon een fijn mens. Aanbevolen!

Satty’s training in mindfulness, alongside yoga, makes her sessions particularly valuable in these busy and stressful times

I have just completed 6 months of one-to-one yoga practice with Satty, with the aim of strengthening my core muscles in preparation for the London Marathon. I was keen to learn the basics of yoga in a one-to-one setting, rather than a class, and to understand its benefits from a mind and body perspective.
I would highly recommend Satty’s teaching to everyone. I found her sessions both relaxing and energising, giving me clear space and time in my head to relax, while my body felt stretched, strengthened and energised. It was extremely useful for my running, giving me stronger muscles and greater flexibility; and extremely beneficial mentally, to slow me down and give me much needed me-time. Satty’s training in mindfulness, alongside yoga, makes her sessions particularly valuable in these busy and stressful times.

Satty’s yoga sessions were varied and interesting and I never felt bored

When I started my Yoga with Satty I was quite specific that I wanted to do some stretching exercises to keep me supple, I also wanted to include some mindfulness and relaxation in our sessions to combat stress and anxiety.

It was gratifying to find Satty listened to what I wanted, and at each session she presented a variety of exercises to meet my needs and experience. She was enthusiastic at my progress, whilst always being encouraging to push myself a little bit further.

Because our sessions were varied and interesting I never felt bored, and always felt Satty had given our session some thought, and followed my exact requirements at all times.

She loved my cats too, so that was a bonus, as one day one of them joined in our session! I have no hesitation in recommending Satty’s yoga sessions.

I arrive every week with my mind racing from the day’s events and within 15 minutes I can feel a calmness and clarity that wasn’t there before

If I’m honest I was sceptical as to whether yoga was for me but thought I’d give it a go 5 months ago. It has been a fantastic experience. What works for me is the combination of yoga and mindfulness as I get the benefit of not just feeling physically stronger from the yoga training but mentally calmer after every lesson. I arrive every week with my mind racing from the day’s events and within 15 minutes I can feel a calmness and clarity that wasn’t there before. Satty has a fantastic gift in teaching both aspects, is great fun and the classes never get stale as she introduces new ideas and new challenges to keep my body and mind “softly smiling”!

Satty is patient, very knowledgeable and hugely respectful of my abilities; she’s also great fun!

I have been taking yoga lessons with Satty since the start of 2016 and I can wholeheartedly recommend her 1:1 classes.
I was a complete yoga novice and took it up to help with shoulder pain and all round fitness. I can honestly say that I have noticed a marked improvement in both areas.
Satty is patient, very knowledgeable and hugely respectful of my abilities; she’s also great fun!

Satty is incredibly supportive going at a pace that is just right for me

“Over the last few months Satty has been helping me develop my yoga practice, so that I am able to further develop my skill within the class and practice at home. Satty is incredibly supportive going at a pace that is just right for me. I’m not let off the hook either as each time we meet Satty tactfully enables me to extend my stretches and poses.
Already I am feeling the benefits. My feet feel more connected to the ground that I walk on. I find that although the stresses and strains of a busy modern life don’t disappear at work or home, I am now better placed to respond in a calmer and more mindful way.”

Satty’s enthusiasm and passion for yoga really shows through in her classes

I have thoroughly enjoyed learning and developing my yoga practise with Satty. She is a very knowledgeable teacher and is great at gauging ability and adapting to suit. Satty’s enthusiasm and passion for yoga really shows through in her classes and I always come away after a class feeling invigorated, energised and satisfied. Thanks Satty!

The centuries old tradition of yoga is about transformation, learning how to live and breathe from a place of balance and harmony. When we learn to smile from within, every encounter with life is met with equanimity and kindness.

Private Classes

Satty Yoga specialises in private classes for individuals and couples. Lessons take place in a well ventilated environment with space to move, breathe, relax and unwind. Tea is served at the start and the end of each session.

People sign up for private classes for different reasons. For some it is about developing flexibility or strength in the body, for others it is about deep slow stretching, or cultivating their meditation practice. For many it is a combination of reasons, that can be more personal or even medical.

Yoga is for everyone, it is a way of moving and being, a way of relationship to ourselves and others that helps bring balance to our lives.

A class card for 6 tailored private sessions is 240 euros.

About

Hello, my name is Satty VerbArt, I live and work in Amersfoort. My purpose is to share my passion for yoga, mindfulness and meditation with you, so that you can experience the transformational benefits for yourself.

I started practicing yoga almost 20 years ago, I wanted to become a more grounded person, not so impacted by work or family stress. I knew yoga had physical benefits and I was curious about the mental benefits.

I started my yoga experience with the Ashtanga primary series. I also explored Hatha yoga and Bikram yoga, and in the last 10 years started to cultivate my own meditation practice, this allowed me to uncover the inner body and the co-dependent relationship with the mind. My yoga evolved and so did I. I learned that the real benefits went beyond being able to do the perfect downward dog or warrior poses, that yoga is in fact more about the internal than the external.

The classes I give vary from dynamic ashtanga based sequences to slow flow movement with deep stretching. All classes embody mindfulness, meditation and movement, a process of cultivating balance and harmony so we feel more centred, grounded, and at ease.

I studied the foundations of yoga and yoga philosophy with the British Wheel of Yoga. This was a sound basis for personal development and the start of the journey towards becoming a yoga teacher.  I did the 8 week Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy Course which helped develop my mindfulness and meditation practice. This was a pre-requisite to study Integrated Yoga and Mindfulnesss with Hugh Poulton, a 200 hour yoga alliance teaching qualification. (Hugh Poulton is one of the UK’s most experienced mindfulness teachers, his work is referenced in Mark William’s bestselling book “Mindfulness: a practical guide to finding peace in a frantic world”).

Whilst the term mindfulness has become very widely used, and in many respects over simplified, it remains the cornerstone for cultivating greater awareness of the unity of the mind and body and our relationship to physical and mental tension. Through yoga and mindfulness we learn to recognise how our mental states are expressed in the body and how this impacts our moment to moment experience.

Gradually, through a continued practice, yoga will bring an inner peace. You will discover a calmer mind, a more open heart and a smile that radiates from within.

Keep Smiling! 🙂
