Sarah is a movement lover and was led to yoga through her early training in dance and work as a contemporary dancer. She has enjoyed an amazing relationship weaving both strands together for many years. Sarah is devoted to yoga as a creative practice and mirror of her inside and outside world.
Sarah loves to empower students to cultivate their own personal relationship to their practice through attention to breath, movement dynamics, integrated alignment, and transitions. She encourages students to approach their mat freshly every day and to move towards a creative and inspired freedom in yoga focussed on whole body awareness.
Sarah’s classes flow in a Vinyasa rhythm and open us to grounding, fluidity, balance, stability, refinement and meeting one’s subtle edge with ease and grace. She encourages curiosity and personal inquiry when playing with the forces inherent in the yoga journey. Sarah understands all bodies are unique and diverse and carry infinite potential for transformation.
“I danced from a very young age into adulthood. Yoga has always journeyed with me as valuable ally, teacher and trusted friend. I believe in the power of yoga to integrate and transform body, mind and spirit. Yoga combines my love for beauty and insights into the body moving, for organic and expressive movement, for stillness, and for the joy of connecting and creating relationships with myself and other beings”.
