About Sarah

RYT-500 & YOGAHOUR® CERTIFIED

Victoria, BC

I began a committed yoga practice in 2008. I kept coming back to the 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 falling 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 an escape. I wish and choose to empower my students to find their own reasons for continuing their practice, while at the same time encouraging them to strengthen their bodies and minds. I desire to meet my students where they are at while also pushing them to further their own practice.

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