Sierra Hollister, E-RYT 500 could list all of her credentials and the famous teachers she studied with
here but isn’t it more interesting to know that Sierra is love-struck in awe and wonder, occupying a body
that delights in physical ~ movement, yoga, running, digging into soil, traversing curvatures,
chanting mantra, meditating ~ awakening again and again into the truth of our deep
interconnectedness, our responsibility for each other and earth.
Love, movement, devotion, gratitude for earth and this sacred, holy life ~ all blend and coalesce in
Sierra’s practice and offerings. A “yoga universalist” ~ Sierra has been teaching since 1992 and holds
multiple certifications and draws from numerous traditions ~ with kundalini being her longest running
and ever steady daily jam.
In addition to studio teaching in Asheville, NC, training yoga teachers, and offering 3 credit carrying
yoga courses at Warren Wilson College, Sierra has been featured in Yoga Journal and is a lead teacher
on the Yoga International platform. Sierra’s first book “Moon Path Yoga” is being released by
Shambhala Publishing Fall 2022.

This is Sierra’s second retreat in Croatia.

Sierra has this fall been published a book with Shambala Publication, Moon Path Yoga where she dwells upon the powerful, revitalizing, feminine “lunar” energy at the heart of Kundalini yoga practice, through this beautifully-illustrated guide with over 170 asana, pranayama, mantra, and meditations for practitioners of all levels.

One of the oldest forms of yoga, Kundalini Yoga is a timeless tradition that includes powerful, specific teachings for anyone identifying as female. These “lunar” practices not only support well-being, health, and vitality through every stage of life, but also awaken and enhance Shakti—the divine feminine, creative life force.

Sierra Hollister helps women discover their unique moon cycle and offers specific sequences (kriya) for daily life, for mothering, for sexuality and relationships—as well as practices, breathing exercises, mudra, mantra, and recipes to provide support and balance.

Moon Path Yoga offers a comprehensive lunar rhythm practice that allows women of any age to awaken their innate divine feminine energy.
