Tate Siemer dreamt for years of co-creating a Yoga community and sanctuary for the purpose of offering healing and well-being to others. Rahn Miralles, a seasoned yoga teacher, and practitioner became the first partner to begin stages of manifestation.
As the location of the Yoga Sunné Sanctuary was established in Cottonwood Heights, other partners were assembled to form a collective. With diverse yogis and yoginis we share the purpose to co-create a community owned and operated studio. We are excited about the new paradigm of shared ownership, incorporating principles and elements of a vibrant and dynamic community culture.
The collective has put thoughtful intention in establishing a rooted foundation to implement programs such as our classes, workshops, teacher training, and community outreach.
About Yoga Sunné
Yoga Sunné is a hot yoga studio that opened in Cottonwood Heights, Utah in April 2016. The studio offers Heated & Non-Heated yoga classes. Hot Flow and Restore Classes are classes we have multiple times per week, as well as a variety of special workshops throughout the year.
Owned and operated by a group of partners committed to uniting yogis and yoga communities, the Yoga Sunné Sanctuary is nurturing a culture of balance, compassion, transformation and resiliency.
Our group has carefully designed the studio to be a welcoming space that imparts upon visitors a felt sense of harmony with nature and the elements.
We are excited to offer a unique yoga experience in our community which lives up to its name — just as the sun feeds all life on our planet, Yoga Sunné will feed our lives by moving us into a deeper and more conscious engagement with the experience of living.
Sanskrit word of yoga is “unity”
Yoga has many branches along its formation and evolution. One of the main definitions of the Sanskrit word of yoga is “unity”. In this sense, yoga is a process of recognizing the unity within ourselves and our relationship to the world. The process of recognizing unity has emerged over time in many ways, in many places, and among many people.
With this in mind, it is often difficult to accurately narrow down a specific lineage associated with a specific kind of yoga. The yoga offered at our studio is no different. What we can say is the hot yoga we offer is contemporary, based on the 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises popularized by Bikram Choudhury. Mr. Choudhury’s lineage flows from his teacher Bishnu Ghosh who was a relative and student of Paramahansa Yogananda. Yoganandas book, “Autobiography of a Yogi” gives good insight into the lineage, practice and intent of the yoga offered at Yoga Sunné.
