Trilogy Sanctuary / by Brittney Hogan

Yards of emerald silk sway in the sun lit breeze from Trilogy Sanctuary's rooftop. It is a place where people can go escape the daily grind of life and find peace in this busy city. Hanging three stories up above downtown La Jolla, suspended in a cradle of silk, I have never felt so safe. Even if you are not a lover of yoga, Trilogy Sanctuary is a jewel in San Diego that is worth seeking out. From this roof top temple you can see the beaches of La Jolla and get a completely new perspective hanging upside down wrapped in silk during their famous Aerial Yoga class. This place is truly magical.

Beyond the steel structure that holds the aerial silks, the rooftop is also home to an exotic Arabian style lounge and a café with a fully vegan menu. “I love having the cafe as part of the studio because it creates a very strong sense of community as students get to hang out before or after class” says owner Leila Whitehead. The cafe is also home to a little gift shop where you can find yoga accessories that will express the fun and joy of the sanctuary. “It feels like it is a big family! Also the aerial classes are taught in a circle so you get to connect with the other students and you really feel like you are in it together!”

Community is a huge part of the Trilogy Sanctuary mind body and spirit experience. The studio is always hosting events that included everything from poetry reading and dance medicine to handstand workshops and fire dancing. This sanctum is constantly innovating its class schedule to include every type of yoga you can imagine including Lyra and Inferred Yoga. After one rooftop sun salutation you will be addicted.
