Sanctuary for Yoga opens second location

On June 17, Sanctuary for Yoga is opening its second location in the Gulch, a downtown complement to their Green Hills studio founded in 2004.

The Gulch location (501 12th Ave. South) is directly across from Urban Outfitters and next door to the Wine Loft. It will feature a full schedule of classes, with select staff members from the Green Hills joining new teachers to give Nashville residents the experience of yoga.

"The recent growth in the Gulch and the vibrant energy there finally convinced us it was time (to open a new location)," says Daphne Larkin, founder of Sanctuary for Yoga. "There are so many great restaurants, living spaces, and retail there already with much more on its way. When I visited the new Turnip Truck location in the Gulch last fall, I knew that it was time to create the space for our community to grow."

"The new studio is urban, beautifully open and clean, and has a different vibe from our Green Hills studio," Larkin adds. "We hope that many of our existing clients will enjoy both studios and are excited to welcome a new clientele who live and work closer to the Gulch."

With four class levels, Sanctuary offers opportunities for beginners and expert alike. The studio also presents special workshops and events designed to teach students how yoga can be key to leading a balanced life.

Group classes are not the only option at Sanctuary: private yoga instruction is available to those who prefer a customized routine, and corporate programs have proven popular with a number of companies as an added benefit for their employees.

"The studio has expanded in many ways over the years," Larkin says. "An incredible community has formed around the studio that includes some of Nashville's best teachers and a diverse group of students. We all feel so happy to be able to come together and share the practice of yoga."

WhistlePig + Alfa Romeo F1

SHOREHAM, VT (September 13, 2023) — WhistlePig Whiskey, the leaders in independent craft whiskey, and Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake are waving the checkered flag on a legend-worthy release that’s taking whiskey to G-Force levels. The Limited Edition PiggyBack Legends Series: Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is a high Rye Whiskey selected by the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake drivers, with barrels trialed in their wind tunnel to ensure a thrilling taste in every sip.

The third iteration in WhistlePig’s Single Barrel PiggyBack Legends Series, the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is bottled at 96.77 proof, a nod to Valtteri Bottas’ racing number, 77, and the precision of racing. Inspired by Zhou Guanyu, the first Chinese F1 driver, this Rye Whiskey is finished with lychee and oolong tea. Herbal and floral notes of the oolong tea complement the herbaceous notes of WhistlePig’s signature PiggyBack 100% Rye, rounded out with a juicy tropical fruit finish and a touch of spice.

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
