One of the precepts of yoga (fromthe yamas & niyamas) is svadhyaya, a Sanskrit word loosely translated as self-study. Swami Kripalu, the wise sage from India that inspired the creation of Kripalu Center in MA, says that “self observation without judgment” is the highest form of yoga we can practice. The Sanctuary is a place to practice.
Since 2002, The Sanctuary has been a host to yoga classes, astrology workshops, feng shui trainings, meditation circles and many other types of spiritual/metaphysical studies. The intent is to provide a safe and sacred space where self discovery is encouraged, deep transformation is possible, and healing can occur.
