Over a decade ago, Sarah’s yoga journey began overlooking the Andes Mountains. Since then, her practice continues to deepen, expand, and evolve. While “the only thing constant is change” (Heraclitus), what has remained consistent is her desire to deepen her knowledge, both of the practice and of herself. She hopes to be forever a student, and forever learning.
Sarah’s classes are soulful and sweaty. Linking breath (pranayama, or life force) with movement, in a challenging yet mindful approach, she will take you through an alignment based vinyasa practice. You can expect to hear bumpin’ beats to help you tune out and turn in.
As The Bhagavad Gita posits “Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.” And for Sarah, yoga is the essential part to cultivating connection:
“It helps me create space for myself. This practice in turn helps me move through the world with a bit more grace and deeper connection. My practice continues to grow and develop, and I think that is what makes it so nourishing and exciting. Yoga is a life’s work, it is a life practice.”
Having lived abroad, travelled to various corners of the globe, coupled with rich personal experiences, she grounds her teaching in the wisdom of a closely examined life. Some of her most profound lessons and reflections come from her work as a literature teacher at Fairfield Ludlowe High School.
Her 200-HR. YTT from Saraswati’s Yoga Joint, a Master’s Degree in Education and the incredible teachers she continues to meet along the way, have a profound impact on her asana and philosophical approach. However, some of the most important teachers in her work as a yoga instructor, an athletic coach and a high school English teacher have been, and continue to be, her students.
