Pineapple Yoga Temple KAUAI
Sacred Geometry Designed by Master of Architecture Michael Patton
Pictured here are design images of the future Pineapple Yoga Temple KAUAI
visioned to be built on the magestic North Shore.
Pineapple Yoga is in the process of raising funds for the development of a Sacred Geometry Temple to serve the community of Kauai with traditional ~Mysore Style Ashtanga Yoga~ classes. The Pineapple Yoga Temple will serve and respect the Ashtanga Yoga practice by presenting the system just as it is taught in Mysore, India at the KPJ Ashtanga Yoga Institute.
This structure was designed by Kauai’s World renowned Master of Architecture Michael Patton. Michael has created this Temple design using Sacred Geometry to be the most conducive environment to support us in finding our highest potential in personal and community growth.
Why Sacred Geometry?
Sacred geometry is geometry used in the design of sacred architecture and sacred art. The basic belief is that geometry and mathematical ratios, harmonics and proportion are also found in music, light, cosmology. This value system is seen as widespread even in prehistory, a cultural universal of the human condition. It is considered foundational to building sacred structures such as temples, mosques, megaliths, monuments and churches; sacred spaces such as altars and tabernacles; meeting places such as sacred groves, village greens and holy wells and the creation of religious art, iconography and using “divine” proportions.
Sacred Geometry Temple Floor Plan
Sacred geometry may be understood as a worldview of pattern recognition, a complex system of religious symbols and structures involving space, time and form. According to this belief the basic patterns of existence are perceived as sacred. By connecting with these, a believer contemplates the Mysterium Magnum, and the Great Design. By studying the nature of these patterns, forms and relationships and their connections, insight may be gained into the mysteries – the laws and lore of the Universe.
