Sarah has completed her Yoga Alliance 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher Certification, and is currently enrolled in a dual Bachelors and Masters in Dietetics program at Mount Mary University. Her passion for health, wellness, and mind body awareness have drawn her to the fitness and nutrition fields.
Sarah grew up playing competitive sports, specifically basketball, and since then movement has been a huge part of her life. As an adult she took her first yoga class and decided she wanted to be a teacher after that first class. Adding continuing education in yoga and movement has become her passion and teaching to different ages and body types over the past 3 years has further inspired her teaching journey.
She is a Yoga Alliance (an international yoga foundation and regulatory board) 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher and is currently enrolled in a 300 hour Registered Yoga Teacher training. This means she will be a 500hr RYT (registered yoga teacher).
Her passion for her own yoga practice has led her to pursuing continuing education in creative sequencing, anatomy, and yoga philosophy. She strives to create strengthening dynamic movement flows that incorporate breath and that focus on functional mobility. Using cues, prep postures, and mimic movements she makes her sequences accessible to every body type and age of student. Based on her experience, knowledge from her continuing education journey, and teaching many bodies of all shapes and ages over the past three years she can personalize a sequence specific to an individual and the issues they want to work on. Some examples of what you could work on in a private session are increasing mobility in a certain area of the body, increasing functional strength, breaking down and achieving a challenging yoga posture (for example arm balances), learning how their individual body (based on anatomy, injury history, etc) most efficiently and effectively should move into common asana, deepening their understanding of yogic philosophy, or how to use physical practice and meditation to work the subtle body side of yoga.
Her interests are in nutrition and making affordable and easy to cook healthy meals more accessible. She had a professional career in recipe development in the restaurant industry and continues her passion for cooking and creativity in the kitchen at home. If she’s not cooking or baking you can find her cuddling with her rescue dog and debating whether she should get another (most likely will end up with a house full of animals), and spoiling her dog with cuddles and treats. Like most people she loves traveling and last year went backpacking for two months through South East Asia and up next is Brazil.
