Sara is passionate about movement of all kinds. She has a background in dance: ballet, Jazz, hip hop, Modern and more. She was introduced to yoga in a Toronto acting class. After sporadically taking Vinyasa and Hatha yoga  classes over the years she discovered traditional Ashtanga yoga and it is her primary practice and what she loves to teach and introduce to others. Along her yoga journey Sara has found deep healing from anxiety, depression, and disordered eating. Sara believes strongly in the transformative power of yoga through the mind- body connection and the joy of coming fully into the present moment and hopes to help everyone have access to yoga.

Sara is grateful to have been trained at the Yoga  Center of Minneapolis Teacher Training program in 2014. In 2015 she she became certified to teach Super Stretch Kids Yoga. She has studied Ashtanga with Kino MacGregor, Tim Feldman, Mark Robberds,  and Angela Jamison. Sara is thankful for her many teachers including Noah Mazé, Sydney Holly, Seane Corn, Baron Baptiste, Eric Schiffman, Rodney Yee, Lynn Thomasberg, Margaret Truesdell Hall, Elise Radtke- Rosen, Moya McGinn Matthews, Jennifer Grey, and Ted Roseen. In her spare time she enjoys being a mom to her 2 young kids, hiking, photography, and writing for Minnesota Yoga and Life magazine.
