Yoga for everyone, Whatever their story
Yoga has a unique ability to instill acceptance, wholeness, and restoration in those who come to the practice. Yoga is a key tool in self-assessing your holistic needs and restoring balance in the body.
In 2009, Sarah completed her 200-hour Power Yoga Teacher Training and has taught continuously to diverse groups and individuals. Her passion for social justice and human rights led her to specialize in teaching Trauma Sensitive Yoga, which can be done seated in chairs, standing, or on mats, and is accessible to any body, age, and ability.
Sarah is available to teach yoga in your organization or in your home.
"We invited Sarah to lead a yoga session to kick off our staff retreat focused on restoring and re-energizing. In our work we are exposed to a lot of trauma and stress and we are always looking for ways to de-stress and be present in our work and lives. Sarah's calm, inviting, and respectful style allowed a group with varying experiences with yoga to participate in a way that felt most comfortable to them. Many staff agreed that this trauma-sensitive approach to yoga is a very respectful and powerful way to facilitate the healing process for those impacted by trauma."
-Abbie Bolkcom-Smith, Family Services Director, CornerHouse
"I asked Sarah to come work with a group of teenage female athletes after we experienced a tragedy in our community. The yoga class was so welcoming, safe, and gentle. It was exactly what the girls needed. It got us centered, listening to our bodies, and it nurtured the team as individuals and as a whole. It also changed how I personally relate to myself as a person who does yoga. I am much more forgiving and accepting of the way my body is and the way it moves."
-Kyle Sweeney, French Teacher, St. Louis Park High School
