Satya Yoga Norfolk
Logan is the owner of Satya Yoga in Norfolk, Virginia. She first knew that yoga was her calling while laying in savasana under a palapa on her beloved island of Isla Mujeres, Mexico, shortly after the birth of her son. At a time of so much change, yoga instantly became the constant, the key turn in her path. Ever since, yoga has been an integral part of Logan’s life, both on and off the mat. She has a strong, loving, and caring connection to her students, who she encourages to practice from the heart, drawing from a place of love and compassion. She is dedicated to relating the ancient teachings of yoga and yogic philosophy to the modern world, guiding students into the state of satya-graha, which means to be possessed by truth…a place where love, kindness and compassion prevail.
Logan completed both her 200hr and 500hr RYT certifications under the tutelage of her dear teacher Lisa Asha Rapp, who first introduced her to the Jivamukti method of yoga. Instantly she was drawn not only to the powerful physical practice of Jivamukti, but also to the emphasis on practice as a means to enlightenment, the beautiful Sanskrit chanting and study of yogic philosophy and Vedic texts, and how yoga relates closely to political activism in the sense that how we treat others will determine our reality. She became a 350hr Certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher in the summer of 2012 and is proud to be the only Jivamukti teacher in Norfolk. She believes that teachers are spiritual activists working to facilitate the enlightenment of their students, guiding them toward the realization of the interconnectedness of all beings: she encourages her students to explore putting yoga into action through the practice of ahimsa (non-harming) in thought, word, and action, and by selfless service to others.
Logan is proud and humbled to be a part of such a great lineage of teachers, and owes all of her knowledge to her beloved teachers, especially Lisa Rapp (Asha-ji), Lisa Hernandez, her Jivamukti family – David-ji and Sharon-ji, Jules Febre, Jeffrey Cohen (Rama-ji) Yogeswari, and Manorama-ji – and to the teachings of Sri Swami Satchidananda. She hopes that with devoted practice and to contribute in some way to the timeless baton-pass of the deeper teachings of yoga from teacher to student, and to actively participate in increasing the happiness and well being of everyone she meets. In addition to yoga, her passions are travel, being a mama, good music, and learning how to be a good vegan cook.
