Bio and Training
Hi, I'm Sara. My partner, Dave, and I own a small press publishing company called On-Word Bound Books. But I am also a yoga teacher (Certified through Yoga Alliance). I've been practicing Yoga since 1998 and completed the 200 hour teacher certification requirements through Yoga North's Teacher Training program in 2008. Since then I have expanded my knowledge and deepened my practice through multiple in-depth teacher trainings: 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 Yoga is what really speaks 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 this wonderful style 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.
I offer open classes, private classes, on-site classes, and workshops. If you have questions, comments, or insights please contact me directly via email: sara @ dorestorativeyoga (dot) com. Namaste.
