Satyananda a foremost disciple of Sw. Sivananda.

Truth formally completed a 2 year and 1,500+ hour Diploma of Satyananda Yoga Teaching, which delved deeply into pranayama, chanting, bhandas, meditation and philosophy.

A few years into teaching inspired a shift to the healing arts and he completed a degree to become a Doctor of  Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2014. Since graduating he has become a registered and practicing Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbalist.
