SARAH ELIZABETH CARLSON
READY TO FLOW WITH ME? CHECKOUT MY SCHEDULE
Sarah received her yoga instructor certification from a 200-hour Yoga Alliance Hot Yoga program at Sweaty Ganesh Yoga (soon to be called Wild Light Yoga Center) in Eugene, OR. Her yoga journey began in 2007 in an effort to heal her body after dealing with some health issues while she was in graduate school studying the psychology of human learning and cognition. She absolutely fell in love with yoga.
Not long after she began practicing yoga, she realized that not only did she want to heal her physical body, but what she was really craving was the sense to connect the body, mind, and spirit. She learned that focusing on the breath and body is what can ultimately connect us with our Divine selves both on and off the mat. Her continued practice and teaching of yoga is to find the balance of every day stresses that life presents us with as we come back to the connection with the body, mind, and spirit.
Her teaching style also promotes a positive learning environment, where she holds a safe space to be present to where the body is on any particular day. Her classes focus on moving through postures with proper alignment and deepening the them with breath. As an educational psychologist, she also studies how to use mindful practices to help improve learning and cognition skills for children and adults of all ages
