Sara was fortunate to have been introduced to Yoga early in life, as a teenager. Already an active and energetic youth, she was drawn to both the physicality of yoga asana and the artistic expressiveness she found inherent in the practice of Vinyasa. She became enamoured with the practice and the freedom she felt by letting go of movement perfection, and within a few years enrolled in her first Yoga Teacher Training while working as a fitness instructor and Personal Trainer. Although raised and living in Calgary, Sara frequently travelled to New York City, which is where she first found her niche through transformative Yoga Teacher Trainings at YogaWorks. Now certified as an Experienced Yoga Teacher, Prenatal Yoga Teacher, and Teacher Trainer, Sara’s classes universally emphasize strength, stability, mobility, and balance. Her versatility as a teacher is enhanced by the incorporation of many varied modalities in her classes, including the use of non-traditional props such as free weights and resistance bands. Always bringing the practice back to the breath, Sara works with a vinyasa-style sensibility, and aims to create a sustainable practice accessible to all. Having had many influential teachers both locally and abroad, Sara also embraces the online world to further her studies and share ideas. Also a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider (YACEP), Sara is herself very committed to continuing her education both within and outside the yoga world, to better understand the human body and movement potential. After years of teaching, she appreciates that there is not one single style or form of yoga that suits everyone, and embraces this by promoting modifications, offering many variations to the postures and sequences in her classes, and confidently stepping outside of tradition, to ensure the safety of her students, and the sustainability of their practice. With her mindfully playful approach, Sara fosters an environment which encourages in every student confident self-exploration and appreciation of the body’s inherent wisdom.
