Sarah is originally from Northern California and has been teaching fitness and yoga classes in Columbus, OH since 2013. Her first experience with yoga was in her high school gym class at the age of fifteen. She found that, as a swimmer and water polo player, she loved using pranayama to improve her speed and endurance in the water. She moved to San Diego in 2001 to attend CSUSM and earned her degree in Liberal Arts&Education. Soon after giving birth to her beautiful baby girl she and her family migrated to Columbus, Oh. It was in Columbus that she found life at a slower pace where she could bring more attention to her yoga practice and spend more time with her daughter.
It was from her passion to sports and the water in an athletic town that she lost over 50lbs through a yoga/swimming/running/and weight lifting regimen. After this experience, she was inspired to take her 200RYT & Aqua Yoga Certifications. She had the privilege of studying under Swami Nibhrtananda, the creator of Aqua Kriya Yoga and continued her passion of all things in the water when she received her Stand Up Paddle Yoga & WPA 1 & 2 certifications from Lazy Dog Paddle in Key West, FL. She shares her love in teaching Yoga, Boot Camp, Kids Yoga & SUPYoga classes to all ages by combining her trainings both on land and water. She encourages her students to push themselves into new realms of personal fitness through physical and nutritional coaching. Sarah believes that no matter what age a person comes to yoga, there is something for everyone. Whether physical, mental, or spiritual — yoga and meditation will speak to each human being on a different level and promote a higher level of consciousness to allow light to shine through each and every heart & smile.
In the summer of 2016, Sarah launched Aqua Flow Fit which is a program designed to bring fitness and yoga both on and in the water. The aquatic classes she teaches include: Sculpt Flow Yoga & Slow Float on floating yoga mats in local pools, which are a wonderful and warm complement to Stand Up Paddle Yoga during the winter months. These classes are currently conducted indoors at Aquatic Adventures in Hilliard, OH. In addition to these wonderful offerings, she teaches Aqua Flow Yoga which submerges the whole body in the water to experience posture and alignment on a whole new level. This program is designed for people of all ages and sizes to connect to that which is closest to the human body-WATER. In the summer 2018 Sarah will continue to offer SUPyoga and SUP
Fit classes which will be held on the open waters of the greater Columbus, OH region.
Aqua Yoga classes held weekly at Aquatic Adventures & Privately at Columbus Country Club, New Albany Country Club. She also teaches private classes at Senior Centers, Independent Assisted Living Homes-specializing in Senior Aquatic Exercise, Gentle Chair Yoga. Stand Up Paddle Yoga is held in the Scioto River and various special hidden gems in and around Ohio.
