Inner Silence : 25′ 40” Inner Silence is a core practice from Satyananda Yoga. It is the basis of the mindfulness techniques which are widely used nowadays.

But Inner Silence is more than this. Eventually our thoughts exhaust themselves and in silence we experience our true selves – we discover perfection, contentment and peace.
