Sacred Spirit Yoga and Healing Arts Center in Dobbs Ferry, NY – Yoga Profile 2019
Sacred Spirit Yoga and Healing Arts Center
343 Broadway, Dobbs Ferry, NY
Philosophy and focus: We believe contemplative practices are essential for our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being, and contemplative, Kripalu-style yoga is the practice we love. Our mission is to build a caring community and inspire peace and wellness. Our focus is on supporting embodied, compassionate self-observation. Students are allowed time to move into a pose, truly witness and find themselves in the pose, and experience the sensations and after-effects of the pose. It’s contemplative yoga, not “gym yoga.”
What type of yoga do you offer? We offer yoga for all levels, taught in the contemplative Kripalu tradition: Beginners’, Gentle, Moderate and Restorative, plus special, all-level community events with beloved guest teachers.
What’s the vibe? Unlike most privately owned yoga studios, we are a 501(3)c nonprofit interfaith community, largely volunteer operated—yoga for the people, by the people. Our goal is to create a sacred space for seekers yearning to deepen their connection to soul, spirit, life and the moment. The vibe is warm, welcoming to all, contemplative, spacious and sacred.
What else? We offer monthly gatherings for Restorative Yoga, Yoga Nidra and Mindfulness Meditation. Special events this fall include workshops/mini-retreats: Jin Shin Jyutsu for Self Healing, Autumn Seasonal Wellness Tune-Up, Deeper Presence and Intuition through the Yoga Scriptures, Healing Sound Bath, and Kirtan Chanting and Sacred Music with Sita’s Light.
