Sara's classes are grounded in her deep respect for the wisdom of the cycles of nature and her curiosity about the capacity of the human body. As a scientist, she is drawn to the precision of the Iyengar Yoga Method and has practiced yoga for almost 20 years. Sara began studying with Sandra Pleasants in 2002 and was certified to teach yoga in 2004. Sara apprenticed with Senior Iyengar Teacher, John Schumacher, for 5 years and after an intensive training with Sandra and John, she successfully passed two assessments to become a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher in September 2015.
Through her work developing the Yoga Media Site, iHanuman, Sara has had the opportunity to study with and record dozens of teachers from around the world. Sara is also a dedicated student of Nutrition, Clinical Herbalism, and Traditional Medicine. Sara creates a safe, inviting environment for students of all levels to increase their strength and flexibility.
One of the people most exemplifying the path of compassion is Yeshi Donden, the Tibetan Physician for the Dalai Lama. Every day he recites this Buddhist Prayer:
“Yoga is a science which liberates one's mind from the bondage of the body and leads it towards the soul." – BKS Iyengar, Tree of Yoga
