experience living in a spiritual community and yogic way of life.
Find clarity in your life, develop your meditation practice, heal yourself from suffering and discover your inner Self. The Sat Yoga Ashram Immersion offers an intensive study and meditation program for those seeking authentic yogic training.
The Heart of the Fire is the Sat Yoga Institute—a unique academy for advanced studies in transformation, based on the teachings of Shunyamurti. He has integrated the ancient yogic science of consciousness with modern sciences, psychology, and philosophy—and poured the mix into accessible contemporary terms. These programs offer a portal into the Truth of our intrinsic nature, deeper within than can be reached by thought.
Every Immersion includes:
- A Shunyamurti led Quantumplation Weekend
- Dharma based community life
- Daily gyana classes in the understanding of the mind and its dynamic functioning.
- Maps of consciousness so you can transform from the ego level to Soul-consciousness, to Pure Spirit.
- Morning Meditation and Evening Classes with the Community
- Satsangs and wisdom classes with Shunyamurti
- Sunrise yoga practice three times a week
- Healing arts, such as painting and drama therapy
- 7 – 10 weekly hours of karma yoga
- Accommodations in our charming cabins (bhavans)
- Delicious vegetarian meals with ingredients from our organic gardens
- Significantly accelerate your transformation by engaging in one-to-one transformational sessions with a trained guide
We asked participants to share their experience with us. This is what they had to say…
“If you are looking for working on your soul or your spiritual journey, this place has everything you need.”

The immersion and extended stay programs are guided and overseen by Shunyamurti and taught by Radha Ma, the Gyana Director and the head of the immersion teaching team.
The Sat Yoga path leads to an accurate understanding of all levels of consciousness: it is a path that requires (and develops) the willingness and ability to think clearly and deeply, the courage to face painful issues, and the perseverance to transform and reach ever higher levels of spiritual potential. This deepening process of self-understanding, and of understanding reality as a whole, is cultivated through daily classes, study groups, reading assignments, creative classes and activities, and individual transformational sessions.
