Welcome to Satyadhara Yogalife Ashram (SYA) – an immaculate abode amidst nature, surrounded by the natural beauty of hills and enthralling sound of river, ideal for self- development through Yoga, Ayurveda and Naturopathy.

Nature teaches us a lot and holds solutions to everything. It offers to us, just what we need, without even asking for anything in return. SYA is our initiative to move a step closer to the infinite sources nature offers to us. Walk with us on a journey to your true self using ancient treatment regimens of Ayurveda and mystical practices of Yoga for holistic health and wellness.

Satyadhara Yogalife is a brainchild of Dr. Radheyshyam Mishra, who has universal presence and has accumulated countless accolades in the field of Yoga since 27 years. Dr. Mishra’s intention was to carve a place that provides fulfilment in physical, mental and spiritual aspects to every individual. He believes that his role in the creation of this place was zilch and it was only the forces of nature and grace of God that worked together to take the form of SYA.

The Vindhyachal houses a diverse flora and fauna, adorning the uneven hills. According to mythology, Goddess Kali has been believed to reside in the dense forests of Vindhyachal. The significance of Vindhyachal is so much that it is the only mountain range mentioned in the Indian National Anthem, apart from the Himalayas.
