Sarah first began practicing yoga 10 years ago, with Jouhaina Dib in Beirut. In 2010, after 10 years of working in theatre, she enrolled in a four-year yoga teacher training at the Ecole Française de Yoga in Paris. During her training, Sarah gave regular classes and workshops in various studios (BeYoga, YogaTime, Yoga&Zen), for adults, kids, pregnant women and people with injuries. In late 2014, she returned to Lebanon and taught in many places, until she founded Hamsa Yoga Space. She's a member of the Federation Nationale des Enseignants de Yoga in France and the Syndicate of Yoga Teachers in Lebanon. Sarah also works with the IMOVE Foundation, teaching yoga and mindfulness to refugees and victims of trauma.

Throughout her training, Sarah has had the honour to meet teachers from several lineages: she was inspired by the precise alignment instructions of Iyengar Yoga with Jacqui Brookes, Angelika Grohmann and Donna Farhi; she enjoyed the repetitive sequencing and physical challenge of Mysore-style Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga with Kia Naddermier; she developed her philosophical knowledge as well as her breathing capacity with Kausthub Desikachar and Boris Tatzky, students of TKV Desikachar; she challenged herself with intensive silent meditation retreats in the Vipassana tradition, and in the Zen tradition with Jacques Castermane.
