SATYAMO JUDY ROBERTS has been fascinated by yoga and meditation for most of her life and first became qualified as a yoga instructor after completing training run by Sivananda Yoga in 1980. She has always enjoyed singing, both on her own but particularly in harmony with others; has sung in choirs since the age of ten, and started playing the guitar from an early age thanks to her folk musician older brother. Satyamo is a local, national, and international presenter in her niche area of the wonderful combination of yoga, meditation, sound and music.
Since 1980 Satyamo has undertaken years of additional study in yoga and meditation, yogic physiology, philosophy, and psychology, Nada Yoga, and other aspects and applications of the vast world of classical yoga.
Alongside this, Satyamo became classically trained in music, majoring in playing and teaching the flute. She studied her Bachelor of Music degree in Hobart, and then years later went on to complete the Master of Arts in Music Therapy degree at UTS in Sydney.
Satyamo followed this up with a Graduate Diploma of Counselling at the University of Tasmania, and having become fascinated by the beautiful world of Guided Imagery and Music, completed her Graduate Diploma GIM from the University of Melbourne at the end of 2015.
Meanwhile, she gained accreditation as a Yoga Therapist, based on her previous and varied skills and qualifications.
Drawing from all these fascinating disciplines, Satyamo has created the classes, workshops, and retreats she now runs. She is tertiary-trained and qualified as a counsellor and music psychotherapist, plus being a senior instructor of yoga and yoga therapist.
Satyamo has a special interest in yoga, meditation, and music for mental health, and also enjoys taking part in other practitioner’s retreats or workshops, perhaps offering a group singing session, Nada Yoga, GIM, or speaking about the combination of yoga and music that she has developed.
Satyamo welcomes your enquiries, her contact details can be found below or on the contact page.
