The style of yoga we share at Sacred Paths Yoga is a mindful vinyasa flow based practice that allows one to find connection and embark upon an insightful journey within. We link breath and movement to emphasize meditation and to find stillness in motion. This practice become a sacred prayer to our body, to access the stillness of the mind and to connect with spirit. The experience is deeply intentional as we honor yogic philosophy and invite our soul to look inward and find peace with what is present.
Our sequence is rooted in traditional Hatha and Ashtanga Vinyasa practices but has evolved to meet the needs of the modern yogi. We offer a holistic and well rounded approach, balancing the Yin and Yang, the passive and active, the lunar and solar, the feminine and masculine energies to leave one feeling centered and harmonious. Not only does this practice offer physical benefits, but it works on the energetic and spiritual forms as well, tapping into the wisdom of ancient yogic teachings while connecting to Earth Medicine and exploring the Elements as a path to transformation and Union with all that is.
We build a solid foundation for our students to then expand upon as they find their voices as teachers or in their own personal practice. We emphasis an embodied understanding of poses and alignment, intelligent sequencing and transitions while embracing grace, ease and fluidity. With this deeper awareness and understanding of the body, we can come into full alignment with mind, body, spirit and our life’s purpose.
There are no requirements to join, so long as you have an interest in yoga and meditation and a desire to deepen that connection.
