Satya Moon Yoga to open Sept. 1 in Shops at Tallgrass

Like the new Hot Asana Yoga Studio, the new Satya Moon Yoga also is opening in Firefly Yoga Studio space on Sept. 1.

Katerina Gavin is putting her new studio in Firefly’s east-side space in the Shops at Tallgrass at 21st and Rock Road.

She says she’s purposely opening the day after Firefly closes because “I don’t want to discontinue anyone’s practice.”

“I’m adding a lot more classes to the schedule,” Gavin says. “I’m really excited about the classes that we’re offering. … It’s everything from vinyasa to restorative.”

She says that includes heated and nonheated yoga for athletes, seniors, expectant mothers, healthy backs and meditation, among other things.

“We honor all levels, ages, conditions, shapes and abilities,” Gavin says.

She’s going to build a new studio within her space to offer anti-gravity yoga and a rope wall.

Gavin says her yoga is noncompetitive and is about personal growth and well being. She says that’s why she named it Satya.

“Satya means truth, but when we’re on the yoga mat, it has to do with being truthful with where we are at that time on the mat,” Gavin says. “You’re on the mat to be completely honest with yourself.”

She says that means being mindful of judgmental thoughts of yourself, which she says are opinions and not fact.

“It’s knowing when we’re judging ourselves,” she says. “It’s a huge part of my practice.”

About Carrie Rengers

Carrie Rengers joined The Eagle's Business team in 2002 despite her inability to even balance a checkbook. Fortunately for her, and readers, her Have You Heard? blog is about business scoops and contains lots of news but almost no math.

A Michigan native, Carrie’s father was quite tragically transferred to Little Rock, Ark., in the middle of her sophomore year of high school. To make matters worse, her parents put her in a girls school. She recovered, though, and went on to enjoy being an English major at Hendrix College (the Harvard of the Ozarks, don’t you know). She worked for the weekly Arkansas Business and the statewide daily Arkansas Democrat-Gazette before moving to Wichita to be with her favorite writer and cook, husband Joe Stumpe.
