Sarah fell in love with yoga in 2013, but it wasn’t necessarily love at first sight. After a disastrous first class, she swore she would never go back. “I was terrible. Clumsy, inflexible, and certainly not calm. I was so uncomfortable in my own skin, I thought, this was just not for me.” After a few more failed attempts, she finally found what she was looking for during a class at Harmony Yoga Studios. Since that moment, she has dedicated herself fully to the practice. In 2015 she decided to take that dedication a step further and enrolled and graduated from Cleveland Yoga’s 200hr Teacher Training program. As a registered teacher with the Yoga Alliance, Sarah loves attending workshops and intensives that increase her knoweldge and better both her teachings and her practice. Sarah’s teaching style is heavily influenced by her Ashtanga yoga practice and her classes are often centralized around focusing on breath with movement. You may find yourself holding poses longer than you are used to so that you can delve into what Sarah refers to as a “moving meditation.” Coming into the asana, finding your alignment, and then finding your breath. Syncing the two together has been key in advancing her practice and also in helping her find a sense of calm on and off her mat.
