Gathering in intentional circles with a close group of friends, often in the form of women’s circles or men’s groups, has long been a satisfying way to find community. Now, yoga circles are trending, with practitioners seeking like-minded people searching for a sense of connection and belonging. “Yoga enables people to relate in a powerful way that includes the intuition and energies of our bodies,” explains Sabrina Chaw, circle expert and life coach. “The practice allows people to go deep and form a container of trust and safety and reverence.” It’s natural, says Chaw, to look for others who’ve opened to this deeper web of life.
