About The Teacher

Sarah is known for her authentic, nurturing teaching style. Her philosophy is that Yoga teaches us to observe, choose and create a life of unity, love and compassion. Her teachings combine Traditional Hatha Yoga principals such as kriyas, asanas, pranayama, meditation and other healing modalities and practices.

Yoga has been part of her life for over 5 years. She completed her 500 hour Vinyasa Krama Yoga Teacher Training in Chile and her 300 hour Advanced Yoga Training in Hatha Yoga with AyurYoga Eco-Ashram in Mysore, India where she lived, practiced, studied and taught for 6 months. She has studied with Swami Prabodh Chaithanya, Simon Borg-Oliver, Ana Forrest, Elena Bower, Honza and Claudine Lafond, Teachers of Sivananda Meenakshi Ashram, SN Goenka (Vipassana Meditation) among others.

Her favorite of Patanjai’s Yoga Sutra is, 1,2:Yogas chitta vritti Nirodha, “Yoga is the cessation of the fluctuations of the mind” because for Sarah Yoga is the practice where she can quiet her mind and simply be. In addition to her passion for yoga, Sarah works with the sacred plant of Cacao, offering cacao ceremony and mindful living integration.
