WELCOME TO SAKALA
Sakala is yours.
We saw the need for a space were teachers, guides, and healers could be their most authentic selves.
Cloaked in value, this space was created to grow and change organically, helping to uplift the community it serves.
The pandemic made us start questioning so many things, and we know we aren't the only ones! We started to really think about what community looked and felt like, and how we could rebuild community when it was all over. We thought a lot about what was missing, what we truly valued, and how we could contribute. Let’s face it, we can walk through life complaining about what we think isn’t right in the world, or we can do something about it. So, we decided to do something about it.
We figured if we were struggling to find our place, there were other people who felt the same way. This is when we decided we would create a place where people could feel at home; where they didn’t have to wonder if they would be accepted for who they are or where they come from.
There has been a lot of upheaval all around us over the last couple of years. It is a cycle we are repeatedly living through. In times like these, we can choose to retreat, or we can rise together. We believe people need people (as Michael Franti says). For us, it is not about the business. It’s about the community. This space is a community sanctuary. There will be yoga classes, social justice meetings, breathwork, meditation, Mayan healers, acupuncture, reiki, book clubs, recovery meetings, and so on. We are here to meet the needs of the community and plan to keep an open mind and open doors as one of our main values. To us, this is yoga.
