YOGA WITH SARAH

Yoga for the Whole Self

 
 

ABOUT SARAH

As a teenager, Sarah was prescribed asana and meditation as a way to cope with her lifelong struggle with anxiety and was soon fascinated by the ancient Indian Philosophy which underpinned her practice. Because she reaped such transformational benefits, Sarah has immersed herself in a well-rounded lifestyle practice facilitated by the technology of Yoga. She studied for her 200 hour certification with Cathy Madeo, ERYT-500, and has been teaching since 2017. Sarah has also completed several special certifications which include Therapeutics with Liz Alvarez, ERYT-200, which facilitates yoga for people with illness, injury or other special needs, and Restorative Yoga with Carolyn Chaiko, ERYT-200. Sarah is excited to share her passion for Yoga and wellness with all humans and, further, hopes to offer an open door into the deeper practices of Yoga to all who feel moved to explore all eight limbs.

"I am a student first and always. I am learning new ways in which to bring the practices of Yoga to you, no matter who you are. In this moment in the world, the Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) community need Yoga and Wellness more than ever. Further, they need Yoga and Wellness tailored to their unique lived experiences, respect and compensation for the incredible wellspring of knowledge they possess, freedom to exist in this world safely, and JOY. I may not be the right teacher to offer all of these things, but I am learning and listening. Please be sure to contact me if there is something I can offer you or if you think I might be able to help direct you to someone who can help you. I am here for you. Black Lives Matter."

RESTORE

Relaxing and restful on the surface, restorative is a therapeutic practice that supports healing on the inside. Whether you take restorative yoga for therapeutic purposes or as a rejuvenating and relaxing compliment to your challenge classes, restorative yoga calms the nervous system and allows for deep tissue healing. Props are used to support the body fully for ease, no strain or tension during the long period in which poses are held.

RISE & VIBE

This early-morning class is meant to help you start your day by giving back to your highest self. Let's set the tone for your best morning through meditation, breath work, movement, affirmation and gratitude. Don't forget a BIG glass of water!

STRONG & CALM

Strong & Calm is a mixed level yoga class that builds strength, stamina, and joint stability by holding active seated and standing postures for longer periods of time. Classes are creatively sequenced to challenge both the body and the mind. You will find meditative movements paired with a focused attention to breath, while the use of props will allow you to move more deeply into the postures. Expect to achieve an increased body, breath, and mind awareness with a sense of calm.

YIN

The yin practice encourages the release of contraction held in the connective tissues of the body, including ligaments and bones. Yin yoga complements dynamic Yoga practices, which primarily focus on change at the muscular level (yang). Passive Postures are held typically for three to five minutes to allow for deep release. Focus on the breath and awareness of sensations that arise during the asana promote a meditative state. Challenge your threshold for stillness as you move inward to find balance and connect with an increased fluidity and stability of the joints and of the mind

ROOTS

This class is focused on the fundamentals of the practice; creating a strong foundation for the practice of Yoga. Postures are taught from the ground up with precise alignment cues and include the use of props to support the practice. Roots classes empower ALL students and help them become confident practitioners of any class.

Sarah's effervescent personality combined with her deliberate, loving and accessible teaching style makes her a highly effective yoga teacher. Her classes make you feel at home with yourself. She has an incredible ability to help you make mind-body-spirit connections that you can take with you off of your mat. Since I started taking Sarah's classes regularly, I've seen positive changes in my personal practice. I am blessed to call her my yoga teacher and friend. I highly recommend her classes to anybody with any level of yoga experience.
You will leave feeling recharged and refreshed!

Sarah provides private in-home teaching to me and I could not be more pleased. She was always a joy to work and left me feeling better than when she arrived. She was able to respond to whatever I was hoping to achieve that day, whether it was a sense of calm, building strength, and/or helping sore muscles. Thank you Sarah for guiding my practice and helping me achieve my goals!

Beth McManus

Sarah is an amazing teacher! Her knowledge in yoga sequencing, alignment and anatomy helps guide you into poses that you never thought were possible. In addition, Sarah has a strong foundation in yoga philosophy, incorporating mindfulness to the practice as well. Classes with Sarah are always fun, too! You always wind up laughing and smiling throughout her class. But Sarah is so much more than someone who just teaches and guides a yoga practice. She creates a safe space for you to be, she is a constant supporter of each and every one of her students, and allows you to grow. For me, Sarah has been someone I look up to; she has changed my life. Sarah is the one who encouraged me to enroll in yoga teacher training and now I'm a yoga teacher myself. She continues to offer support and guidance and I couldn't be more grateful and thankful for her! I highly recommend taking classes and workshops with Sarah!

I love practicing with Sarah! She's informative, fun, and personable.

Len Scales

Sarah is an undeniable bright light in her classes. She makes everyBODY feel welcomed and able to conquer any pose. With her beautiful and inspiring philosophy to her expansive knowledge of the human body you will walk out of her class feeling more connected to yourself and the mat like never before. I cannot thank Sarah enough for her encouragement into yoga teacher training and being such a positive influence on and off the mat.
