About this pro

"It's not about being good at something, it's about being good to yourself".  

Self awareness is one of the best things that we can do for ourselves and yoga practices are a great way to care for our whole body from the inside out.  Self-realization and mastery is the result of the practice of disciplines of yoga. 

Yoga practices lead us to a whole new way of discovery by way of learning to listen to our bodies and what they need, and tapping into the inner strength and focus to achieve self controls. My goal is to help you learn to listen, to help to overcome any challenges, and to help you achieve success with whatever part of the body that needs help, through proper alignment, focus, breath work and meditation. 

Whether it's your first time with yoga, you're getting back into yoga or you just want to take it to the next level, I will design a unique class that's specific to your needs. 

I have been personally practicing yoga for 20 years and teaching yoga for 17 of those years. In that time I have received over 800 hours of yoga certification hours combined, with specific training in Bikram, Vinyasa, Anusara and Iyengar styles.  

We all have a choice: to feel good or not to feel good. I believe yoga can help in that area tremendously! Yoga is a such a gift. I know that I have enjoyed receiving this gift of self care many times and I love being able to give it back to my community.  One of my favorite parts of my job is seeing the calm and happy look on my students face after class. Ahhh...  It is the gift that keeps on giving... for as long as you choose... ;)

    Sarah’s classes are awesome! She always begins with a very uplifting and sweet intro to remind everyone that it is a practice. The flow is always great and targets many of the problem areas that I have without hurting myself. And the way Sarah helps visualize the way a pose should look/feel is a huge plus for me. I don’t always know if I’m in the right spot, so little tips throughout class makes a big difference for me. She is very experienced and insightful and her energy flows through the room to create a calm and warm feeling. Her classes in particular always offer such a release, sometimes I’m overwhelmed and cry a little, but in a good way! I can’t recommend enough :)

How did you get started teaching?

The first yoga class that I ever taught was at the YMCA. My teacher was going to be out of town and she asked if one of us would like to teach her class. I raised my hand and taught the next day. I LOVED it! After a few years of trying out different types of yoga I went to my first training in 2001. And I have been teaching ever since!
