Satya Katiza

Satya Katiza is a yogini in heart and soul, her life has been driven by searching for Truth after a close encounter with death when she was just 13 years old. After returning to her physical body from the experience, she had with her the indestructible taste of fearlessness.

Katiza consciously made life and life’s impermanence her research field. With no fear, she moves and guides others into all different realities. She has great curiosity to meet in the presence of other human beings with the same ground of knowing: “we all are limitless and timeless”.

Her first language to communicate from ‘Here’ was through drawing and painting. Yoga and meditation were her playing fields where she naturally plugged into the realm of the all-knowing. She did not really learn yoga, she remembered it, and sharing yoga was a natural outcome. Painting and yoga were her expressions until yoga consumed her life as a direct language and service to humanity. Satsang has come naturally as part of sharing the nectar with all that are ready to receive it.

Since 1983, Satya has studied with a great number of prominent teachers and masters in Europe, the U.S., and India. Tibetan master, Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, was her first guru, followed by H.W.I. Poonja (Papaji) was her second after coming across the teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi. Sri K. Pattabi Jois was her third guru, then S.N. Goenka was her fourth whom she followed for about 8 years in the teachings of Vipassana meditation. Satya has also received teachings directly from His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and B.K.S. Iyengar; as well as been inspired and influenced by Parahamsa Nithyananda, Richard Freeman, Clive Sheridan, Sarah Powers, Tsultrim Allione, Dona Holleman and Orit Sen Gupta, and Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche.
With great and humble gratitude to all my Masters that mirror the Truth and gave me the unconditional and unshakable support to manifest from Here in this eternal Now called this life.
