Group Class Testimonial:
“I was feeling like the Level 2 classes were too intense and repetitive and wanted to experience yoga at a slower pace and with more internal awareness. Sarah helped me to realize that not all cues offered in class are appropriate for every body. She encouraged me to understand and feel what was happening in my body and gave me the tools and empowerment I needed to know how to listen to my inner yogi for guidance. She continues to inspire me to grow in my practice both on and off the mat. Sarah's yoga classes are appropriate for a beginner, a person with physical limitations, and an advanced yoga practitioner alike. Many yoga teachers take Sarah's classes because she teaches anatomy in a very practical way, and uses innovative techniques and sequences to get at subtle aspects of movement and body awareness. Because everything is broken down so methodically, even a newbie can feel at home. Moreover, she tailors the poses/movement cues to individual body types, so that everyone can be safe, while getting the intended benefit from the pose.” M.B. Highland Park
SARAH'S CLASSES ARE DIFFERENT
We don't perform poses; we train the mind to pay attention to our body's habits. How does my body try to avoid the intention(s) of the pose? How does my body sneakily avoid the stretch, unintentionally undermining joint stability?
Sarah will always make clear the WHY of the class, the poses, and the cues. We are here, ultimately, for the why. The "why" forces us to engage with the task of understanding HOW to move our bodies appropriately. It allows us to make sense of our past injuries, and to avoid future ones.
Rather than blindly following a set choreography at a set pace, students are instructed to scale each pose (gentle version, Level 1, 2 or 3 version) to their needs in the moment. Poses are offered in progressive levels of complexity, strength or range of motion so that both someone returning to yoga and a visiting teacher can both feel their needs were met.
FIND YOUR WAY:
All cues are valid, but not all cues are valid for you. Learn how to discern which ones you need to listen to, and perhaps more importantly, which ones you need to ignore.
Props help us gain access to otherwise inaccessible states of feeling. They can mobilize our stiffness, limit our hypermobility, make an abstract concept concrete, and provide measurable boundaries.
Understand, see and touch your body. It's yours, and you need to "Walk the fenceline,"as Sarah says. You are in charge of maintaining your body, learning how to better communicate with it and keeping it in decent shape. Anatomy (the parts) and learning how those parts interact, is a big part of making sense of every class, coach or cue you've ever heard.
