What does it mean to live a good life? Through the ages, philosophers of all cultures have answered this question in different ways. The sages of India’s yogic traditions suggest that the answer lies in a body that is healthy, a mind that is at peace, and the feeling of connection to something bigger than the individual… something universal. Something Sattvic!

In Ayurveda, Sattva is the underlying quality of Nature that brings about stability, harmony, and balance. The word Sattvic describes something rooted in the foundational intelligence and clarity of the Universe, and facilitates peaceful connection with the world, leading to the awakening of the soul.

Simply Sattvic is dedicated to engaging with you in an open-ended exploration of some of the tools that Indian sages developed to cultivate good health and lasting contentment. They include the traditional Ashtanga Yoga system of yoga practice as developed by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, and currently taught by R. Sharath and Saraswati Jois in Mysore, India… Ayurvedic Cooking – the science of Ayurveda applied to making and eating flavorful, energy-enhancing vegetarian food… and, the conscientious application of yogic philosophy to what I call Sattvic Photography – a photographic expression of an evolving, joy-filled connection with the world.

This website is a work in progress. It is not meant to provide “the” answers, as much as to provoke introspection and perhaps inspire new habits of practice that might help us understand who we really are.
