Her teachings revolve around the belief that in order to access creative change and powerful healing, one must first learn to ground down and open up. A paradigm that has lead her through many years of study and self-discovery, and which brings a unique voice and quality to each of her teachings. Her written work has been featured on Elephant Journal and Global Yoga Hub and she has recently been featured in the 2016 Yoga Summit with her "Healing from the Inside Out – The Power of Your Story" lecture.
Sapha believes in the importance of the breath as a paramount foundation for flow-based practices and she is a firm believer in the importance of biomechanics and the individually unique anatomy of each person needing to be served and honored with in the practice itself.
Sapha is a firm believer in the importance of continual education and is constantly growing her knowledge of yoga, meditation, nutrition, physiology, psychology and much more. Her mission is to help people to develop and harness the tools that can help them heal from the inside out by allowing them to truly get to know who they are and teaching them how to remain present to every moment so they can release, open and create a life that is filled with joy, purpose and peace.
