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 Sacred Paths Yoga 200hr training exceeded my expectations of a virtual online program during COVID-19! Darin, Lacey & other facilitators made this experience extremely engaging through carefully selected materials, topics and discussions. This is just the beginning of my journey as a yoga practitioner but I felt I was given ample support, encouragement & resourceful content to help me grow in the yoga space & community. I would definitely recommend Sacred Paths to anyone looking to get their YTT as it blends spirituality & asana to make it a living breathing practice. Thank you again for this opportunity & cannot wait to meet you both in person, Darin & Lacey!

  • This Teacher Training that I received from Sacred Paths Yoga, make me stop, turn around and see that was another world alive, the Spiritual World, that I discovered through Yoga. I came to this training to learn more about yoga poses to get physically fit. But I found something more deeper, physical and Spiritual development. Also the combination of videos and live meetings make me to open my eyes and beyond. The videos gave us the information needed. The live meetings brought us (all peers & Teachers) togetherness, be able to express our thoughts, concerns, feelings and our questions to be answered when needed.

  • Sacred Paths came into my life at a moment when I was feeling lost and had no real path to follow after failing what was my original plan for living but with which I wasn’t completely comfortable. Maybe it was fate, destiny or pure luck, but I ran into an advertisement of Sacred Paths YTT, which I had been wanting to do for quite some time but never seemed to have the resources or time to do it. This online opportunity was heaven sent & I fell into an awesome group of teachers & fellow students who helped me not only deepen my practice of yoga & learn about sequences, communication in a class, history & philosophy, but also reconnect with life & a deeper purpose for me. The scholarship helped me be a part of a group for which I will be forever thankful and created a community that will last far beyond when the course finishes. Thank you Lacey, Darin & the rest of the wonderful family at Sacred Paths Yoga & I will be looking forward to seeing you again in the future for an actual in person experience

  • The online 200h ytt of Sacred Paths Yoga was one not to forget easily. It was powerful! It took a bunch of energy and I was willing to give it because of all that was shared. An amazing amount of knowledge and materials with respect for all styles and backgrounds of yoga. In this way I was able to choose and become the teacher that I am now. Through the live classes and the space held by the lovely, supporting and respectful teachers, there was still a sense of connection even though it was online. I feel ready to take my next step on this yoga path!

  • SPY's online yoga teacher training came very serendipitously into my life--I'd always wanted to get certified as a yoga instructor but could never carve out the time to attend one in person. I'm so glad I was able to do this in our virtual world--not only was I able to deepen my yoga practice during quarantine, but I was able to build a beautiful & international community of other yogis! Darin & Lacey & the entire facilitator team did an amazing job translating all the spiritual and practice lessons to a virtual environment, & made us all feel connected. They were all so generous with their time & their feedback, helping us all on our individual % collective journeys.

  • I recently took the Sacred Paths Yoga Online Teacher Training. I have always wanted to take a Yoga Teacher Training program to help deepen my discipline and self practice, and this online program came at the best time.  I was drawn to Sacred Paths because they have a strong focus on understanding ancient medicines within the practice of yoga. And I was not disappointed!!! I highly highly recommend the Sacred Paths Training program whether online or in-person. Even though my program was online and I have not "personally" met any of the other students - the amount of connection, community, support and love that was received was second to none. The teachings were vast, and I felt like they gave a very real understanding of the cultural roots of yoga and the different styles of yoga. Each facilitator brought forth all their own unique wisdom and experiences from their practice, which was incredibly insightful. And the shaman and medicine wheel teachings just added this layer of depth and transformation to the practice.
    I do a lot of Energy Medicine in my day to day life and studying ancient medicine modalities - but this course felt like it was this golden thread that woven all my existing teachings together. It also gave me more fundamental tools to use with my clients and in my own life and practice to bring depth and transformation. I think one of my favorite teachings that came from this program was this idea of soften - soften into the poses, soften into the practice, soften into the medicines, soften into the self, and soften into our healing. Nothing in life has to be harsh, invasive, and full speed ahead. Sometimes the greatest transformation takes place through the lens of love, compassion and soften into the experience or practice.
    I'm very grateful to Darin, Lacey and the whole team at Sacred Paths Yoga!!! Thank you for the most amazing experience, and the wisdom you have blessed me with. I will forever hold these teachings in my heart.
