Yogi Of The Week: Sachi

This is Sachi.

Sachi started practicing yoga when she was living in Hawaii. It was at a free community class, deep in the green tropical rainforest, Sachi felt overpowered with the notion that every person and every life on this planet is connected through air, and through breath. This was where liking yoga became loving yoga and being yoga. Now, as a teacher, her focus is to create moments that profoundly connect her students' spirit with nature.

Yoga gave Sachi one of the happiest moments in her life. On a rock climbing trip to British Columbia this summer, she was on a cliff right over Lake Revelstoke – and she paused. It was a crazy place to be: vertical rock, tiny handholds, completely exposed over the water. But Sachi was totally in her world, among nature's stunning elements and with a beautiful friend. An eagle passed by, the wind was calm, and the water was singing. They meditated and chanted, right there while hanging in the air. If the rest of her life can have more moments like this, it will be hard to make Sachi any happier.

Sachi admits that when she first started practicing, her busy life and her attitude made her feel the need to fill every single minute of the day with some sort of task or activity – stillness wasn't an option. Yoga gave her the opportunity to ‘do nothing’ and come back to the purest form of herself.

We loved learning about Sachi. And we’d love to learn about you, too! Tell us a little about yourself on the You Series page:

Every week we're sharing the story of another real yogi in our blogs, emails and even magazines. Maybe soon you'll see yourself here. Or see something in yourself here.

Practice On.
