“Sansara” is the Sanskrit word for moving through old patterns and blockages so that one may enter into a state of “continuous flow.” In yoga, we tap into our sense of flow through movement, meditation, breath-work, and a deep awareness of ourselves and the world around us. It is through practice that we can move beyond the stagnation which interrupts our life’s natural flow. With yoga at Sansara learn to transform your body and mind into a blissful space of acceptance, gratitude, and love.

Sansara’s Yoga Shala is a beautifully designed open air space with tropical hardwood floors, a traditional thatched roof, and a 10,000 Buddhas mural, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Usable year-round, our Shala comes fully stocked with mats, bolsters, handcrafted wooden blocks, straps, blankets, and a sound system ready for you to enjoy.

Our shala is fully equipped with mats, straps, blocks, bolsters, blankets & high performance sound systems.
