Sometimes, the idea of a healthy, limber life may seem a bit far-fetched. But you know what may be just the thing to get us into ship-shape again? Yoga. And now we can get centered at Sacred Thread or heat things up at Sacred Sweat.
Sometimes, the idea of a healthy, limber life may seem a bit far-fetched. But you know what may be just the thing to get us into ship-shape again? Yoga. We could go on and on about the benefits and virtues a regular practice can have on our day-to-day existence: a deeply rooted sense of centered focus on our bodies, in our mind, and in our hearts. If taking the plunge to reach toe-touching status seems unreal– we’ve got just the place for you. Actually, we have two places for you. Yup, the good folks behind Sacred Thread opened up a sister studio in the heart of East Atlanta Village, and brought the heat with ‘em.
Aside from the obvious difference in neighborhoods, there are a few different things about the two studios- namely, the heat. At Sacred Thread, yogis can get their vinyasa and join the infinite flow of the universe, and at Sacred Sweat, they can do that while sweating it out in a hot yoga practice. After such success with their “Sacred Sweat” practice at Sacred Thread, Annelise began to toy with the idea of turning up the heat a bit – but knew that a hot yoga studio would call for a different space altogether. Let’s just say all things aligned for this studio to come into fruition. After scoring the ideal studio in a neighborhood with a need for one and developing the space to a different, serene, and sacred space we’ve grown to know and love them for
And the proverbial thread that runs through it all? Yoga connects students to other students, students to their teachers, and teachers to each other so that the studio really is a place where people come together. Annelise and her team are all about creating a sense of belonging, a place where anyone, no matter their starting point, can dive right in (and not be left in the dust when they transition into dancer pose). And while yoga can happen anywhere, there might be no better urban classroom setting than the Sacred Thread studio in the Old Fourth Ward, a big, open space with distressed brick, light streaming through the windows, or the Sacred Sweat space in East Atlanta —a space where you can find your sacred, quiet place even in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the city. (And, okay, fine, maybe work on toning those gams too. But only after you're feeling the love and light. And the heat.)
