Sara recently moved to Salida from Flagstaff, AZ where she received her degree in physical therapy. She previously taught and studied in Northern Idaho where she earned her Anusara-Inspired Training in 2012, a style whose principles even informs her PT practice because of its universal value in healing the body. She also has a strong background in Iyengar Yoga, which taught her the joy of props as tools to bring yoga to all ages and abilities, including students with injuries, people with Parkinson's Disease, and post-surgical patients. She has been practicing yoga for 14 years now because she sees in her personal practice and teaching that yoga reminds us all of the benefits of movement, helps us regain lost motion, and reconnect with what is important in our busy lives. She believes yoga can guide us to find the peace among the chaos and so often teaches class at slower, mindful pace with warm up and sequencing designed to open up new possibilities in the body and heart. She is thrilled to be part of a studio that also values creating community, since we go much farther down our personal path when we practice alongside others seeking the same peace.
