We view yoga as a spiritual practice, as a path to self-realization, union, bliss, conscious connection, deepened awareness and mindful living. Throughout this process we explore different paths to Union including movement, song, dance, chanting, ceremony and more! In this journey, we embody yogic living, fully immersing ourselves in the experience of living and breathing this practice on and off our mat with our beloved community as our unwaivering support system. This path asks for dedication, discipline and courage to look deep within to uncover our truth and our own authentic connection. Without our daily distractions, habits and patterns, a new way of perceiving the world is revealed.

Everyone is accepted, supported and encouraged through their process. Through our community we create a comfortable safe space to facilitate growth and expansion on all levels.

  • "The 200hr training was a step towards my health and I can feel new pathways opening up in my system. There is space and expansion in places that I havn't felt for a while and this is just one of the gifts that I have received. It was a journey of movement, laughter and ritual and the beauty of it was the on-going knowlege that rained on us - colourful, rich and full of Life. That's Sacred Paths Yoga."

  • “I did A LOT of research before I chose my teacher training, so believe me you’re doing right taking a look at Sacred Paths Yoga. I wanted to deepen my yoga practice & my own spiritual journey, so I liked how the program blended traditional ashtanga yoga, hatha, anatomy & classes about both Ayurveda & shamanism. I also got a good vibe from the teachers & the Bali spirit. Honestly I had high hopes on my the teacher training in Bali, but I didn’t got disappointed. SPY gave more than I expected, a lot of sutra lessons, satsangs, ecstatic dance and the asana alignment will forever improve my yoga. The teaching was one good thing, but equally contributing to my great 21 days was the wonderful place Dragonfly Village with its delicious sattvic food and all the beautiful and brave yoginis I had beside me. I have recommended SPY to all I talked to. Wherever you will go I’m sure you gonna have a fun, heartwarming, challenging & life changing journey. Feel both nervous & proud, vulnerable & strong. I wish you a blissful start on your embarking yoga journey! Aho!”

  • Sacred Paths is an incredible institution! Their 200-RYT was transformation, well-structured, and inclusive. I felt like I learned more from Darin and Lacey in 3 weeks than I had in all of the previous years of personal practice and attending classes. They have artfully drawn from a variety of cultures and disciplines in a way that allows students to take what serves them and begin to formulate their own model of what it means to live a yogic life. Beyond learning, this was a well-facilitated opportunity to unplug in a beautiful place and reconnect with yourself and those around you. Kudos to this team!

  • I have heard it said before: Yoga Teacher Training Changes your life. But how can 21 days change your whole outlook I asked? After my 200 hours YTT this is my answer: The SPY facilitators created a sacred and safe environment for us to learn and grow from curious students into confident, radiating teachers. They held a space where we could realize, face and release our fears and self made problems. We were guided towards identifying with our passion and manifesting it. I am so grateful that I decided to sign up with Sacred Path Yoga. Not only did I become a yoga teacher, I also found a spiritual family and found my passion and the strength to follow my path.

  • My name is Sian, I studied with Lacy and Darin / Sacred Paths Yoga at the start of 2018. I can honestly say it was the most incredible, transformational experience of my life. Darin and Lacey are beautiful guides, I feel I’ve made life long friends in themselves and my class peers. Since coming home I feel like a renewed, better version of my old self. We learnt so much on so many different levels during the course. I cannot recommend these beautiful souls enough and words don’t express how amazing the experience was. I look forward to studying my 300hrs with Darin and Lacey. Love and light, always, Sian x

  • I was guided through my 200hr YTT by two inspirational women, Lacey and Sri. They brought a wealth of knowledge and experience of yoga, as well as shamanic practices, and worked in perfect harmony together. Their transformational teaching and leadership style allowed me to learn from my experiences and grow through what I go through. I met a tribe of kindred spirits from all walks of life and connected more deeply with my true self. Lacey and Sri were genuinely interested in each individual and nurtured self-love and compassion within every student which will have a ripple effect on our communities and beyond!

    Alice Masheter
  • This has been a life changing, life giving, heart opening yoga journey experience. Lacey and Sri are both so inspiring and have put their resources, heart and soul into us and I am forever grateful for this experience. I am officially a yoga teacher but I have also learned so much more!

  • How difficult it is to find words to describe my experience with Sacred Paths Yoga. I was fortunate to attend the 200hr YTT in Bali with Lacey, Srimati & Darin. As a lover of yoga & Nurse Practitioner, I felt that there was "more" out there other than going to yoga before or after work, working with sick people all day & repeating over & over again. Beyond exhausting, physically, spiritually & emotionally. The balance just wasn't there & my life was not sustainable. Change was necessary before complete burnout set in. I decided to leave my high paying, 60 hour a week job, kiss my husband & 2 year old goodbye for 4 weeks and set out on an experience of a lifetime. Life changing. While at training, I was able to gain the tools, emotionally & spiritually, to move on to the next step in my life, opening a yoga studio, bringing yoga to more people, allowing people a space of love & light & help them balance the stresses we battle every single day. I had such a wonderful experience, I am sending the manager of my soon to open studio, CaliFlo Yoga Collective, to teacher training in Bali and our lovable assistant and soon to be yoga instructor to Guatemala though Sacred Paths Yoga so we can be aligned in practice & our understanding of yoga, while running a business together. Lacey & Darin have created a truly unique experience in the most beautiful places on our Earth. Anyone who is able to attend a Sacred Paths course shouldn't second guess, DO IT, you will not regret your decision.
