Sanctuary Yoga

Monthly 2-hour workshops of movement, bhakti & integration

with Erika Van Gemeren & Aya Dunin

The mirroring of worlds.

Our external world is a mirror of our internal world.


How we treat our body is a direct correlation to what shows up for us on the outside. If we are always in the yang-we will deplete our fire and we can see this on a global level right now. If we don’t tend to this fire (Agni)-the Fire dampens and it goes out. What a perfect time to call in some balance at the fall equinox. Let’s slow down, have more discernment of what we bring into our bodies, how we can be stewards to the earth, and bring this practice to our household. Tantra Yoga was for the householders- and now that studios are closed we must make this a living practice. We are birthing a new earth together.


Together, we will balance, slow down, and discern this moment, preparing for the turn of the year with themes that will support your inner world and how you relate to your outer world. We will be creating a fresh opening 2021. This series is beyond the mat but will include movement. Expect a 2-hour journey of meditation, yin, invocation, bhakti, vinyasa concluding with 20-minutes of discussion-based integration.

Aya Dunin

Aya will be leading with Yin Yoga, and drawing from her quantum healing & feminine embodiment practices, also guided by cross pollinated Earth wisdom philosophies. She will guide students to gaze towards their inner landscape.
