Bio and Training
Hi, I'm Sara. I am a Yoga Alliance Certified yoga teacher at the ERYT500 level. I've been practicing Yoga since 1998. I completed the 200 hour teacher certification requirements in 2008 and the 500 hour requirements in 2014 through Yoga North International SomaYoga Institute.
Between my 200 and 500 hour trainings I expanded my knowledge and deepened my practice through multiple in-depth teacher trainings: Relax & Renew ®, iRest Yoga Nidra ®, Anatomy and Asana, Therapeutic Yoga, Somatics Specialty Classes, Restoring and Rebuilding the Inner Core, Inversions, Vinyasa's Rocket Series, Thai Yoga Bodywork, the Therapeutic Spinal Strip and Backbender, and some of Yoga's philosophical studies: the Chakras, the Mind Study and the Yamas & Niyamas (Yoga's Ethical Guidelines).
Restorative and Therapeutic Yoga really speak to me so I developed this website and blog to share what I have learned through my personal practice and through teaching so others can also benefit from these wonderful styles of yoga. I teach Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga, Deep Relaxation (Yoga Nidra and iRest Yoga Nidra) and Hatha Yoga, incorporating Inner Core, Somatics, and Therapeutic Yoga into my classes to benefit my students.
In addition, my partner, David, and I own a small press publishing company called On-Word Bound Books and a wine education and travel company called Savvy Nomad. In the fall of 2014 we "took our show on the road," guiding several canal boat trips through the south of France, offering wine education and yoga on board. We plan to continue this in the future.
I offer open classes, private classes, on-site classes, workshops, and guided trips to France. If you have questions, comments, or insights please contact me directly via email: sara @ dorestorativeyoga (dot) com. Namaste.
