I’m in love, with life, with love, with how I choose to live with joy.

My yoga journey began where it originated… I had the beautiful opportunity to practice and learn about yoga in India as the sun rose, the monsoon winds swirling in through the windows, no mirrors, our teacher chanting Sanskrit in the air. It was a gift that carried over as I landed back in the states. Each time I would leave a yoga class, I’d feel alive–more alive than I ever had before. A complete love of everything…joy in all that surrounded me. For me, it was definitely a calling to pursue teaching. In 2012, I completed my 200 HR yoga teacher training at Gaia Flow Yoga. I was on a mission to inspire yogis, as I had been inspired by my greatest teachers through breath, movement and mindfulness. To teach not only asana or poses but the healing power behind them, of breath, positive thinking and the ability to choose to live in the present moment.

Yoga inspires, creates, and manages those little places in our lives, in our hearts that need to open just a little bit more. It all starts on the mat, and slowly a transformation will unfold. It transforms the way we move, the way we live, even the way we breathe. Growing up and into adulthood, I suffered from asthma. Each morning since I could remember, I would take a low-dose steroid. I took charge of my health, practicing daily and with focus on diaphragmatic breathing and Ujjayi breath, I am so thankful to have been off all medication for over two years. Yoga is a gift, a science of life and well-being that has the power to change your life.

Sarah teaches vinyasa and prenatal yoga at various studios from Addison to Allen. She and her husband are expecting their first child, Everett, this June.
