Sarah began practicing yoga in 2017 for practical reasons. Having enjoyed sports like rowing and road cycling, she felt that she needed significantly more stretching to balance out her training. However, it was not long before other aspects of yoga were what drew her to the mat. The focus on the breath, being comfortable to lie with oneself in stillness, and introspective nature of the practice were challenging in new and exciting ways. The self-exploration in the mind as well as the physical body connected in a deep way. Her interest in yoga grew into areas of philosophy and the meaning of the Sanskrit names. After a few years of taking classes, she completed a 200-hour teacher training in 2020 through Yoga Landing in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and loved it. Curious about what modifications exist for prenatal yoga, Sarah decided to get further certified as a prenatal yoga instructor and is in the process of accumulating the final teaching hours required for her RPYT from Childlight Education Company.
Sarah’s classes ask students to explore how the practice makes them feel in both mind and body, withholding judgment or criticism of the self and engaging curiosity.
