Rev. Sumati Govinda was born with an intense desire to realize her true nature, a desire that was nurtured by growing up in Satchidananda Ashram ~ Yogaville. Drawn to meditation, her father taught her how to practice when she was two years old, and before she entered kindergarten, her passion for the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali was ignited. Sumati solidified her path by receiving mantra initiation in 1979 from her guru Sri Swami Satchidananda, the founder of Yogaville.
Today, Sumati maintains a healthy balance of worldly and spiritual life. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing and she is a Certified Yoga Therapist. She also is an Integral Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 500) and Integral Yoga Interfaith Minister. Sumati and her family are founding members and current residents of Satchidananda Ashram ~ Yogaville.
