Sacred Sarana Yoga is about reconnecting with the beautiful sacred space within, your inner ‘temple’. It is a practice about returning home to that inner stillness through sacred breath and movement.
When we move the body and mind with breath as an embodied practice we receive so much more than physical strength and flexibility. It reconnects us to the wisdom of living from the heart and joy of knowing our own authentic self.
Sacred Sarana offers the 8 limbs of Raja Yoga so classes include asanas, pranayama, meditation, philosophy and some chanting to help you reconnect with your own inner temple.
Sarana is a Sanskrit and Pali (ancient Buddhist) word for shelter (refuge), protection or home. Refuge represents a place of retreat and safety and in Latin it means to “fly back to our most ancient true home, the place where we truly belong”. Sarana also stands for an individual’s commitment to participate with an open heart and mind in a practice to seek clarity and awareness of our true nature and return to our true home. This word beautifully encapsulates what the practice of yoga has meant to me over the last thirteen years – a refuge from the challenges and chaos of life so that I can release tension, connect with stillness, heal and journey back to my heart and true self. The opportunity to share this practice in such a beautiful space with others helps me to return home over and over again.
