About Sarah

E-RYT-200 & YOGAHOUR® CERTIFIED

Victoria, BC

I’m a yoga teacher, a mother, and a water lover.

I want to live in a world where people can love their bodies for what they are: strong, beautiful, & created beings.

I began a committed yoga practice in 2008. I kept coming back to my mat again and again not always knowing why, but always with the knowledge that I felt better afterwards and wanted to share this with everyone I met! I took the plunge in 2012 and did a teacher training here in Victoria with Ida Manly at Moksana Yoga. 2 years later having fallen in love with yogahour® I went down to St. Louis, MO to train with yogahour® creator Darren Rhodes. Beginning with a primarily Bikram practice, over the course of many years, styles, and teachers I have learned that one of the biggest reasons that keeps me coming back to my mat is that it truly feels like home.

Sarah’s classes will straddle the line of challenge, striking a balance between both a doable and difficult practice experience. Expect clear and concise cuing that will lead you to find success in postures you didn’t think possible. She strives to empower her students to find their own reasons for continuing their journey. She desires to bring a little more Grace into the world by paying attention and seeing the people in front of her; meeting them where they are and loving them for who they are.

Sarah is a E-RYT certified yogahour® teacher and holds deep gratitude for the blessings in her life, including her supportive husband, 3 wonderful children, & this beautifully created world.

Asana, practice, learning, teaching; yoga is never “finished.”
