Sacred Thread Advanced Yoga Studies

calligraphy-884268_1280 (1)

Yoga is a practice of joining together: breath and movement; intention and action; discipline and playfulness; mind, body, and spirit, the ethereal and the earthly. At Sacred Thread, we believe in the divine nature of all beings, and have crafted a program to nurture, challenge, inspire, and empower you on your path to self-realization.We are all a part of the sacred thread that weaves the brilliant and multifaceted web of existence.We see healing as an art of remembering, and our heartfelt intention is to hold space for you throughout that awakening.

In this advanced yoga studies course, we will explore the deep ties between the philosophical, the magical and the mystical.

Please note that Sacred Thread is not registered with Yoga Alliance. If you have any questions or would like to discuss further we are happy to chat with you.
