Nick Edge (Swami SatyaDaya)
Swami SatyaDaya is a born seeker who brings a very meditative and reflective style to his practice and teaching. As a gyana yogi, his main path is gyana yoga (the path of reflection and insight). He has been fundamentally inspired by his time at Mandala Yoga Ashram under the direction of Swami Nishchalananda and through his contact with other inspiring teachers, and has now fully stepped into the role of teacher, guide and inspirer. He teaches in a clear and engaging way, which is liberally sprinkled with humour! As his path has unfolded he has become more and more convinced that yoga and meditation, as a science of self-realisation, need to be presented in the most accessible way possible for the modern age. This allows the incredible possibilities offered by these profound and inspiring practices to be fully available to all that seek for deeper understanding, regardless of their age, gender, background or tradition.
Swami SatyaDaya is also a passionate wildlife photographer and self-confessed nature lover. He believes that time in nature sharing with and intimately observing other living things, is as fundamental to human well-being as any formal practice. Every year he leads retreats that aim to combine traditional yogic practice with time spent in nature so that the very world around us becomes a doorway into the deeper mystery that we are innately one with.
