Our Story

Our adventure yoga retreats are designed to make sure others can enrich their lives in the same way, and experience transformational healing first-hand through the discovery of adventure, community and personal truth.


Kristin & Satya

Partners Kristin Bird and  Satya found their truest and most authentic selves through the experiences of yoga, community, and travel. The spiritual discipline of yoga opened their hearts to the many truths of the world and they felt it was their purpose to spread the joy of being to everyone. Utilizing the same tools that helped them find their bliss, Satsang Adventures came into existence.  Satsang is said to be a sacred gathering of truth and it is our passion to combine Satsang with adventures that light the soul on fire.

Kristin Bird

800 E-RYT, YACEP, AHA, M.A. Yoga Therapy Candidate

Kristin is a full time teacher of Integrative Holistic Health practices.
She found yoga in 2018 and has spent the years since studying immersive experiences of culture, religion, and spirituality around the world.
During this time she grew to leading workshops, programs, and retreats on mind body medicine practices in domestic and international settings.

Kristin is passionate about integrating eastern wisdom practices with the western medical model and has devoted her life to learning and sharing practices that alleviate suffering of the physical, mental, and emotional bodies. 

She believes, through study and experience, that pain is inevitable but suffering is optional - and with the introduction of small minor adjustments in one’s daily habits over a period of time - one can vastly reduce discomforts physically and mentally in daily life.
