Sarah first began practicing yoga with her mother and sisters as a young child in the Pacific Northwest. One very cold morning, she abandoned it in favor of staying in her warm bed. Skipping that morning practice led to several years without yoga in her life.
After the birth of her third child, Sarah found herself with various health issues and was compelled to examine her habits. Faced with the prospect of medications and possible surgeries, she contemplated what she was missing that was present in her youth – eating food that was close to the source, getting exercise through walking, biking and hiking, having God in her life…and yoga.
A gift for teaching and nurturing had led Sarah to previous positions as a preschool teacher and nanny. From the moment she stepped out of her first yoga class as an adult, she knew she would one day teach it to others. She soon embarked on her teacher training, and in 2002, opened her own studio, Sukha Yoga Center.
Sarah teaches the Krishnamacharya lineage of yoga.
