Mission & History

Who We Are

the practice of yoga has made a profound difference in each of our lives. it is the goal of satya to remove social, physical, and financial barriers that limit access to yoga in certain populations.

SATYA is a non-profit with a mission to increase access to therapeutic yoga for at-risk and vulnerable populations in our Seacoast community.
We envision a future where all members of our community have access to the profound therapeutic potential of yoga regardless of social, physical, and financial barriers.

Satya is the Sanskrit word for "truth".   “Sat” means the eternal unchanging truth beyond all knowing. “Ya” is the activating suffix which means “do it”. By this definition, satya is “actively expressing and being in harmony with ultimate truths”. For many years the Seacoast yoga community has come together in truth to first acknowledge and ultimately address need in our local Strafford, Rockingham and York counties. Free yoga classes, fundraisers for local charities and community service have been a part of life for many of our local yogis. SATYA: Seacoast Area Teachers of Yoga in Action was founded as a vehicle to consolidate and grow these programs as well as to promote organized yoga outreach in our community.
