Sathya Gopalan

Satya helps to keep things light around the Ivy House. If you ever get too serious, Satya will make you laugh and see that nothing is as bad as it seems. Born a Brahmin in India, Satya’s purpose in life is to care and share with everyone he meets. In fact if there is a person needing help within 100 miles, Satya usually finds them, either that or they find him!

The Brahmin’s in India are traditionally the chefs, astrologers, teachers and priests and this all of what Satya does, it is his birthright going back many generations. The ancient language of Sanskrit was a part of his studies growing up and Satya actually speaks, writes and reads 9 languages! An intuitive councilor, whether someone needs advice or a nourishing meal, Satya seems to know exactly what each person needs.

About Us

Join us for a yoga class, an afternoon workshop or stay with us for a personal R and R Retreat for a week or two. We provide many programs that are designed to reduce stress, educate and provide tools for you to bring back to your everyday life.

Utilizing the ancient techniques of yoga, meditation, combined with modern ideas such as earthing, organic gardening and non-violent communication, The Ivy House is a place to heal and learn to BE. Isn’t that funny, that we have to learn how to relax?

We like to describe The Ivy House as like a modern day ashram. By definition an ashram is a place to go inward, grow spiritually, receive tools for growth among a like minded community. An ashram in India would typically also include a guru, and yet the word guru simply means teacher. The Ivy House Founders/staff provide support to people of all backgrounds and includes programs for CEU credits for many industries.

We live in a very fast paced society and most people are living in frenetic numbness. Days, weeks and then years go by and then health problems start to come to the surface until you can no longer ignore your body. Most people no matter where they come from or how confident and successful they may seem, have a deep sense of unhappiness, unease and unworthiness. The only place where peace lies is deep within.  No matter what your background or belief system we help find what works best for you to find inner peace.

The Founders of The Ivy House are dedicated to assisting people who want to learn, who want to slow down and who want to grow and live a more conscious and mindful life. So who are we? The founders of the Ivy House are husband and wife, Satya Gopalan and Corrine Champigny, and Colleen Brophy MD.

566 Croley is the alternate address that may be in a GPS though we don’t have it marked, but the city does for mapping for some reason as we are on the corner of Croley and Ivy.

PLEASE DON’T PARK ON THE STREET EVER AS THERE IS PLENTY OF PARKING BOTH IN THE FRONT AND BACK DRIVEWAYS, the back drive is just pass the driveway that is on Croley, just next to the fence. Then just walk up through the back gate and into our garden and back yard! Directions from I40W. Take the White Bridge Rd exit off 40 West (make sure you don’t take the Briley exit in the new construction as that takes you past Robertson), and make a right and then immediate left onto Robertson. Don’t miss Robertson or you will have 3 miles before you can turn around. Come down about one mile until you see very large white Deluxe Made Cleaners sign on left and that street is Croley, make a left. The Ivy House is on the corner of Croley and Ivy and I have a driveway entrance from both streets.
