about us

Sanctuary is one of Nashville’s most established yoga studios,
founded by visionaries Daphne Larkin and Tom Larkin.  

Since opening our doors in 2004, we have been home to some of Nashville’s most experienced teachers and a growing community that has evolved with us.  We are strongly rooted in a vibrant city which has literally exploded.

Many of our teachers have been teaching at Sanctuary since our early days, when we dared to cultivate a new space for yoga that sparked change.   We remain true to our original intention - to inspire and encourage people to learn about the transformative power of yoga by cultivating a sacred space that honors the tradition of yoga, supports creative expression and embraces evolution and growth.

Step inside - to the path of your practice and the evolution of yourself.  We welcome ALL.
