In a Satsang class we practice silent japa meditation, Kirtan (Mantra chanting) and have a lecture on specific topics of yoga and its philosophy. Chanting Kirtan and Mantras is very uplifting, purifying and calming for the mind.
The dates for the next Hatha Yoga & Satsang Meditation classes are, Friday (always re-confirm a couple days before event – Thank You):
These classes are held at our home in Silkstone. Please book and confirm dates, space is limited. Contact details

5pm – 6:30pm Hatha Yoga Class (breathing exercises, sun salutation, 12 basic postures, guided final relaxation)
You can join for both sessions to get most benefits, a good way to end the working week. Or if this is not possible for you, just attend the Hatha Yoga class or the Satsang/Kirtan class.
In between the two sessions we have a cup of tea and something sweet.
SATSANGA by Swami Sivananda (from his book Bliss Divine)
If the dust is in the company of the wind, it soars high in the sky, if it is in the company of muddy water, it becomes a dirty mire. If the air in in the company of jasmine, it wafts a sweet aroma. If it is in the company of offal, it disseminates a foul odour. Put the parrot in the company of wicked men. It will start abusing. Put it in the company of Sadhus, It will repeat “Ram, Renga, Renga”. Even so, if one is in the company of a sage, he attains knowledge and soars high in the realm of eternal bliss.
If you cannot get the Satsanga of living Mahatmas, you can take recourse to the study of books written by great souls. In the evening, four or five people can assemble together in a temple or a quiet room and can study for one or two hours either the Gita or the Upanishads or the Ramayana or the Yogavasishta or the Bhagavata. Slowly you mind will be purified. You will get real taste in the spiritual path.
