How is yoga different?​

  • Many western traditions view yoga as yet another form of fitness and exercise. At Sacred Space we hold true to the more traditional approach to yoga. Yoga means to “yoke” or unite. Yoga offers a way to unite body, mind, and spirit through practices such as asana (movement), breath work (pranayama), and meditation (dyana). We are complex beings and the practice of yoga allows for a person to find connection between the different aspects of their being. When balance is experienced healing and wholeness take place.

I'm not flexible.​

  • Clinically this is an impossibility. Everyone is flexible just to different degrees.  

  • But I get what you are saying. Maybe you can’t touch your toes or can’t do the splits. The things traditionally associated with what social media tells us yoga is. (Refer to How yoga is different?)

  • That's ok. Yoga isn't about being flexible or touching your toes. Yoga is about the journey, about what you learn on the way down to reach your toes. Whether you ever arrive is inconsequential.

Ms Angel at Sacred Space is an incredible woman. She offered time and guidance to the youth that were brought to Sacred Space. She provided insight, support, and allowed the girls to be themselves during the sessions that we were able to attend. I really think that everyone could use a healthy dose of Angel everyday!
