Sara began to begrudgingly practice yoga at the prodding of a friend in 2010, but it wasn't until discovering vinyasa yoga four years later that everything started to click. After years of a less-than-balanced lifestyle, Sara learned to listen and made peace with her body rather than fighting it.
As a former athlete, Sara appreciates the role of fitness, but has come to redefine health as something greater than lifting heavy things, running laps, or eating on a diet. As Sara's yoga practice deepened, so did her interest in the exploring connection between mind, body, and living well.
The connections that started in the studio led to a path of self-discovery and a deep love of healing — physically, mentally, and emotionally, and ultimately to a career in holistic health and nutrition, followed by a yoga teacher training. Sara completed her 200-hour training in January 2016 with the New School of Yogic Arts. Sara believes that in the yoga studio, deep feeling and lighthearted fun are not mutually exclusive. She hopes her classes will bring students same sense of self-awareness she experienced in discovering yoga, especially the begrudging ones.
Sara has spent most of her career working with kids and teens in a variety of settings, from group homes to lacrosse teams, and believes that finding the kid still inside is one of the many benefits of yoga practice.
