Finding Peace and Sanctuary

{sacred} thread is an urban yoga studio in the heart of Old Fourth Ward.

With an adjacent art gallery, the studio is designed as a sanctuary that weaves together elements which engage the body, mind, imagination, and soul.


At {sacred} thread, our classes are structured to establish physical vitality, strength, endurance, and flexibility but also to allow students to study and deepen their practice of pranayama (breath-work) and meditation.

Most of our classes are 90 minutes, with 75 minutes dedicated to centering and the physical practice, and 15 minutes at the end for breath-work and seated meditation.

Our teachers work as a community, geared towards providing students the opportunity to not only explore various yogic practices, but to have consistent exposure to them, fostering a deeper understanding and experience.

As a studio, {sacred} thread evokes a deep and soulful experience.

Our vinyasa classes are fun and unpretentious, physically challenging and mentally intoxicating ~ a reprieve from the city that rejuvenates you while also inspiring you to live the biggest life possible.


Yoga is a practice that builds avenues of reflection and opening - avenues to become more connected – and a strong physical body to live life to your fullest.


Art has a way of moving us closer to the Mystery, a way of putting the formless into form – evoking a connection with that which is sacred.


Community brings the notions of “connectedness” back into a world separated from ritual, gathering, and pause.


You will deepen your knowledge and experience of the physical aspects of the practice, building strength and increasing range of motion in both your body and your soul.

We have a dedicated circle of teachers with extensive training in various facets of yoga including hatha, astanga, pranakriya, Iyengar, and anusara.
