ABOUT ME

Sarah first started practicing yoga in the fall of 2017. She experienced vinyasa flow for the first time at Highland Yoga, and discovered that vinyasa style flow was one of the only forms of movement that helped bring clarity and calm to her experience with anxiety. Shortly after starting this practice, Sarah began to experience health-related issues that required her to step back from practice all together. Months later, feeling very weak, she was able to return to the mat, and continued to experience all aspects of what yoga has to offer the whole person: spirit, soul and body.

 

Yoga gave Sarah the gift of becoming an embodied individual in a way that she had never experienced before. Instead of ignoring her body out of fear of what was wrong, she started listening to what it was trying to tell her. She allowed herself to start to breathe into the tension of uncomfortable poses, and started to develop trust in herself and her body. She will never forget the first day she felt strong on the mat - that day she decided she wanted to become a yoga instructor.

 

Highland Yoga had become such a place of safe practice for Sarah, that she decided to pursue her 200-hour training with the studio in the spring of 2019. Now, Sarah works to build engaging, alignment-based sequences that safely transition people through poses, allowing space for each individual to connect to their own breath and body so that every person can continue the journey of becoming safe and at home in their own mind, body and practice.
