    "Ginger it was an honor to be a part of your yoga teacher training. I truly appreciate the energy and time you took towards our self healing. With the template you laid out for the students to reach a higher level of enlightenment and the energy you provided, I was able to start thinking more clearly and start making more conscious decisions in my life to better serve me. You’ve given me a roadmap and guideline that I can apply to my everyday life. I’ve been able to dive deep and start to release the resentments and negative emotions that had me stuck.There was a point in my life where I felt like I couldn’t connect to anyone, and no one would be able to understand the pain I went through in life. I became very anti-social and distant from my family. I was very deep into my addiction, but since I started this journey with you I was able to shed these old ideas and habits and find peace in my life. Diving deep within myself has opened new doors for me that I couldn’t even began to imagine could happen in such short period of time.I’ve made friends who I now consider family and are forever connected with. We can understand each other on a level deeper than the surface. I’ve been given an opportunity to have a certification that will help further my growth and advancement while helping others in the process.I have not had a single day thinking about using drugs or going back to that old lifestyle that I was so miserable in.I’m able to wake up every morning and appreciate the first breathe of fresh air we have all been so blessed to be given. You’ve made all of this possible with the love and compassion you hold for every one of your students. I can’t even begin to put into words my gratitude for you and everything you’ve done for every single person that crosses your path. You are a role model; someone I can aspire to be more like.I’ve been able to break down the ego I’ve held onto for so long. The compassion and the difference I’ve placed on myself has made me realize that they were nothing but mere excuses as to why I didn’t want to rise up to the challenge and face the reality or the truth of why I became the way I was.This has helped me more than any rehab or therapy session. This may work for others but I feel like this path was what I was truly missing.I’ve been able open up more in your space and feel accepted for who I am. I didn’t find that in AA and I didn’t find it in rehab, but now I’m able to walk in my Truth and impact those around me. Until you go through the journey yourself, you cannot understand how we get so caught up in life; living with expectations, trying to please others, and living with unnecessary anxiety. A ton of anxiety caused by others trying to tell us how we should live our life and what we should be doing. I think that was my problem. It is easier to fall when the pressures are on you about how many meetings you’ve attended, what step are you on, and what your sober date is.It might make some people feel like if they’re aren’t doing these things than they might as well pick up a substance since they’ve already fallen behind the rest of the group. Unfortunately, because of that ego some people never make it back. This training gives an opportunity to do something—because we want to, we want to break that programming. I know I did. I am the type of person who doesn’t like being told what I should be doing and was rebellious by nature since a young age. I was out of control. Now I’ve been able to change and understand down to a science, from what I eat to how I breathe defines how I feel and respond to life. My mind has been so quiet. I am at peace. It baffles me to think that I’ve become so aligned with my truth. I’m not constantly chasing things anymore. Yoga is more than just what is done on the mat. Once you understand the philosophy and science behind all the poses, and an in-depth guideline for living in your constitution and being the person you are meant to be, you find peace within. This yoga training made this all possible for me. I will follow the right path and footsteps now. I will help as many people in my path realize who they really are just like you did for me!! Namaste" ... Read More

    "I wanted to take a moment to thank you again for the opportunity to have been a part of YTT with you at Satya Anahata this Spring. I can’t begin to express in words the gratitude I have for all that I gained, the new lease on life that I feel. The work that you do with Reco through the yoga classes that you provide is an experience that is nothing like any I have experienced in my previous go rounds with rehab. I have tried many times in the past to get back to being myself, to find what little was left inside the shell I had become through my addiction. I gained the tools I needed during my time at Reco to tow the line of sobriety. Through the training I got with you at Satya Anahata I learned a way to use those tools to completely rebuild my “home” rather than just patch the broken walls in which I was residing. I knew I needed to do something different if I wanted a true shot at happiness, I had no idea that “something” was going to be given to me in the form of yoga. I knew that after a class I felt lighter and clearer than I had in years and that was nice. What I didn’t know was that there is so much more to gain from what I thought of as exercise. I have always been good at listening and participating when in a clinical setting. I have played the game well many times. I have learned and relearned what I need to do to stay sober many times throughout my life. The knowledge I have gained never seemed to be much more than just that, knowledge. Then I started the YTT, more learning, but it was clear almost immediately that it was more than just learning, it was feeling. Feeling in ways that I forgot existed. Feelings so deep and exhilarating that they were life changing. Rehab has taught me what I need to do and not do in my life to exist in the world and for that I am thankful. Yoga on the other hand, yoga showed me who I am. Through the training I was shown how to give myself permission to know my worth by finding myself. I was shown how to look inside, all the way inside my essence not only see who I was but be confident in being me. I was able to actually look past the mistakes and the things I didn’t even know I was still carrying around like an anchor. I was able to see the start of a person that I was proud of , a person worth my time and love. For the first time in so many years I saw myself. I wasn’t being told who I was or could be by a therapist or a room of my broken peers. I was able to see “Angie” because of the comfort and philosophies I was taught in your training. The only way I can even come close to repaying you for that is to share what I now know and feel with whoever will listen. My hope is that people who can benefit from this kind of experience get the chance to do so. Those of us that happen to share the all encompassing pain and loss of addiction need all the tools we can find. Though we are all the same we are still individuals. What works for many doesn’t always reach the right depths for some. We all deserve to feel a purpose. I thank you for giving me the opportunity to find mine.I am happy to have a way of doing service that I feel compelled to do rather than obligated to do. I look forward to sharing with others what you have and are sharing with me." ... Read More

    "Trying to put into a succinct review what I got out of my Satya Anahata TT is like trying to describe first love, or the night sky seen for the first time. It was beyond my most hopeful expectations, in fact beyond expectations I knew I had. Ginger gave so freely of her spirit and embodied such a vast array of knowledge that we as a group became individually renewed human beings. It was both incredibly focused and professional and also more personal than any other group training I’ve taken part in in any discipline. Whether you want to teach or simply connect with the deepest part of yourself as it connects to universal force and wisdom, I cannot recommend this training enough." ... Read More

The love and acceptance that comes through is exceptional. Being a part of this teacher training opened up dimensions in me that I did not expect. It was an experience that I will always cherish. This teaching family has left an indelible impression on my heart and soul and I hope to be able to carry this name with pride and affection wherever the universe chooses to place me. The truth unstruck school definitely struck a chord in me to let the truth prevail. Aum Tat Sat." ... Read More

    "Satya Anahata taught me what the true essence of yoga is, to work from the heart. Ginger is infinitely giving and caring and intuitive, so much so that every student walking into her care is more than well provided for. In this training I stretched outside of my comfort zone in so many ways, meeting the person I truly am. Ginger leads an honest life of service and care for humanity. Her extensive knowledge in yoga is easily learned as she is very accessible and relatable. Throughout the training, I learned so much, felt so cared for, and was supported throughout my journey. Ginger is an authentic teacher, staying true to the principles of yoga in her everyday life, and overall an inspiration to anyone trying to move forward in this journey. Her knowledge of philosophy and asanas are deep wells that anyone can learn a lot from. Ginger also notifies her students of what can be expected as yoga teachers leaving the training, and equips her students to care for people from all backgrounds. I am happy and blessed to be a part of this school." ... Read More

    "I was totally transformed by this yoga teacher training. Any yoga school can teach the sutras and asanas. What makes Satya Anahata different is Ginger Fawn Bowden’s Heart centered approach to yoga and her students. She lives and breathes yoga in the truest sense: mind, body and soul. With her guidance, I’ve improved my physical practice, I’ve come to understand the sutras, but most importantly the way I see and experience the world has CHANGED. I cannot wait to begin teaching, and to pass on what she has so generously shared with me. Satya Anahata has TRUE HEART. I hope she will teach many more students to come and that her heart will touch each of them as it has touched me." ... Read More
