What current Satsanga members are saying:



"This year studying with Dr Svoboda has been so so rich for me. I feel like he's helping me to flesh out the bones of my yoga practice and deepen my love of these sacred Indian arts. It's made me more connected, more established in trust and a better yoga teacher and guide for others."

— Chaitanya M.

"[The Satsanga] keeps giving and giving. There are the talks themselves, and then there are all the additional resources Dr. Svoboda brings to our attention. I have been noticing this week that so much of my life over the past year has taken definition from these teachings. Very grateful."

— Niloofar H.

Frequently Asked Questions:



Q: What are the benefits of being in the Satsanga versus buying classes individually?

A: As a part of the Satsanga, you'll get to take part live in monthly Q&As where you can ask questions, and you pay the best price to get access to the most content. Buying the courses individually allows you to keep lifetime access to them so you can revisit the content as much as you want, and ask questions during occasional general Q&As.


Q: When I sign up for the Satsanga, am I committing to the whole year?

A: Yes. Dr. Svoboda's Satsanga is a yearlong course to help you digest and integrate the course contents. Whether you choose to pay in full or monthly, you are committing to 12 months when you sign up.


Q: Do I have lifetime access to these courses?

A: No! You only have access to the course content for the year while you are an active student.

Q: Will I have direct access to Dr. Svoboda?

A: You will get to ask your questions to Dr. Svoboda, who tries to answer as many as he can in the live sessions. He occasionally also answers personal emails, but he cannot promise to answer all.

Q: What if I cannot make it to a monthly Q&A?

A: Recordings will be in the course portal within two hours of the end of each Q&A session, and you can watch the recordings as many times as you want. We try our best to accommodate time zones all over the world, and thus the timing of class changes each month, and we try to give you at least a month of advance notice so you can plan ahead.

Q: Can I get NAMA credit for these courses?

A: We haven't worked directly with NAMA to assure you'll get credit. However we have had some students submit certificates and get credit - doing so is up to you.

Q: Can I join the Satsanga at any time?

A: No, we only open the opportunity for a window in the spring and fall. Once the doors close, you won't have the chance to join for another 6 months. (Though there is no guarantee will will continue to run it next year). This allows us to create a space for people inside the Satsanga to connect and for us to focus on these members during the year.

Q: What if I am already a Satsanga member, do I need to sign up again here?

A: The Satsanga is a yearlong course but enrollment occurs twice a year. If you joined 6 months ago, you are all set and don’t need to do anything at this time. When enrollment opens in another 6 months, you can sign up again for another year! 


Q: Will closed captions be available?

A: Yes! On all courses.


Q: Does this subscription include Practicing Reality or any of the Ayurveda and the Microbiome courses?

A: No, but it does include over 200 hours of other content (see above).

Q: Will any of the profits be donated from sales of this course?

A: Yes! We're donating to an organization that supports children's education in India.


Q: What times and dates do the classes take place?

A: The times and dates change every month to help make it possible for people to join from many different time zones. We aim to announce the dates and times at least a month in advance.
