Yoga has been part of her life for over 5 years. She completed her 500 hour Vinyasa Krama Yoga Teacher Training in Chile and her 300 hour Advanced Yoga Training in Hatha Yoga with AyurYoga Eco-Ashram in Mysore, India where she lived, practiced, studied and taught for 6 months. She has studied with Swami Prabodh Chaithanya, Simon Borg-Oliver, Ana Forrest, Elena Bower, Honza and Claudine Lafond, Teachers of Sivananda Meenakshi Ashram, SN Goenka (Vipassana Meditation) among others.
Her favorite of Patanjai’s Yoga Sutra is, 1,2:Yogas chitta vritti Nirodha, “Yoga is the cessation of the fluctuations of the mind” because for Sarah Yoga is the practice where she can quiet her mind and simply be.
