Sarah has dedicated her life to yoga because of the joy that the practice brings to her life, through connection with self, community, and the world beyond the yoga mat.
Yoga has been an important part of Sarah’s life from an early age. Starting yoga when she was a child, and beginning her first teacher training at the age of seventeen, in Sydney, Australia, she has since participated in numerous training programs at home and internationally. Sarah’s teaching style reflects her diversity of experience in yoga practices integrating practices and teachings from Vinyasa Flow, Vini, Oki-do and Yin yoga.
In her classes, Sarah draws on ideas from the arts, literature, music and philosophy (both yogic and western), to engage with yoga in a way that explores personal integration of body and mind, as well as connection with each other and the world around us. Often challenging and always explorative, expect an invitation to be playful in Sarah’s classes as you flow with the breath through dynamic movement into relaxation.
Sarah’s yoga training is complimented by post-graduate studies in psychotherapy with a major in art therapy, as well as trauma-aware yoga training. She has facilitated yoga in a variety of contexts including classes for adults with disabilities, adult mental health clinics, and recovery groups for addiction and eating disorders. Private sessions and therapeutic group-work with Sarah explore the relationship between body, breath and mind, and can support the process of healing that is found in releasing unhelpful patterns of thought and behaviour, allowing us to rest with ease in our own lives and hearts.
