As a yoga teacher, Sarah blends years of anatomy study and playfulness into an alignment-based and smile-filled flow. Sarah strives to teach a practice of yoga that can be applied on and off the mat. Making yoga fun and doable for everyone, she weaves yogic philosophy with Western psychology into a different and nascent theme for each class. The result is a steady balance between challenge and empowerment.
Sarah is also working on her PhD in Clinical Psychology at VCU; her hope is to bring the work of mindful embodiment into the world of research and a healthy dose of research into the yoga world. A huge part of Sarah’s dedication to health and wellness is a motivation to study, live, and share the practice of mindfulness and compassion. She wants to continue expanding the world’s curiosity for mindfulness in order to make life more consciously livable for everyone.
Sarah has been teaching and studying yoga and mindfulness since 2011. Her practice started in 2005. As a yoga student she continuously seeks great teachers from a variety of disciplines. Some teachers that have deeply influenced her practice and teaching style are Elena Brower, Ken von Roenn, Cindy Hutchison, Faith Hunter, Amanda McMaine, Kathryn Budig, and Doug Keller.
