Satyam is a family-run yoga centre in Cambridge. It was set up in 2016 by local couple Jo & Paul Darking who had a vision of a community yoga space in their hometown. Their mission was to create a place that was accessible and inclusive, providing a full-bodied experience of what yoga is. At Satyam you will find yoga in all of it's 8 limbs, not just the physical practices but also the ethical focus, the service to the community, and the opportunity to go deeper into the meditative practices of yoga.
We believe that yoga and meditation offer tools which can be used by anyone to support them in daily life, empowering people to live their life more fully by enhancing physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health and wellbeing, increasing self-awareness and encouraging a sense of community.
In Sanskrit, the Indian language of yoga, Yoga means 'union'. Satyam means 'truth'. Yam is the bija mantra (a one-syllable sound) of the heart centre. Yam also translates as "to move, to set out...to find out". Therefore by offering the sanctuary of a focused space within which to come together, Satyam seeks to support the movement towards wholeness, the unfoldment of truth within a person's heart.
