“Movement is my medicine.”
As a young woman, Shakti, known at the time as Sarah Bonsall, began to seek a deeper side of life. At the age of 18, she moved away from her family to follow a passion for studio arts in Boulder CO. Soon after setting into her new life, Shakti was introduced to yoga and realized that for her, an intelligently designed yoga class was a more potent form of artistic expression than any canvas ever could be.
Early on in her practice, Shakti appreciated the physical challenge and momentary peace that yoga was able to yield. Eventually, as her practice continued to expand, Shakti realize the physical limitations of yoga asana, and began to venture out into other movement modalities. With over 2000 hours of formal training in yoga and movement culture, Shakti is a life-long student of improvement. In her eyes, yoga is not only her way to stimulate and heal both body and mind, but also, a crucial means to her survival.
We are so thrilled to be hosting two gorgeous retreats with Shakti Bird and her partner Daniel Rama in 2020.
