About Sarah

SarahYoga

I am passionate about the benefits of regular yoga practise on our quality of life having practised yoga regularly for some thirty years. Throughout adult life I have always been drawn to yoga as a way of keeping both body and mind healthy.

In 1990, I became part of the first group of teachers to be locally trained in Norwich by the British Wheel of Yoga. From this point my knowledge of yoga deepened and its principles and practises became more of a guiding light through the normal ups and downs of daily life.

Yoga teaching

I have been teaching yoga since 1992, most of my teaching having centred on weekly classes of students in and around Norwich. In recent years my interest has focused on Yoga therapy, in part due to a bout of prolonged illness myself but also to pursue my long-held interest in teaching yoga one to one.

Yoga therapy

Teaching yoga in groups brings many benefits to the participants but to help people who are sick and ill, private, individual work is often necessary. To equip myself with the relevant knowledge and experience for this work I obtained my training as a Yoga Therapist with the Yoga Biomedical Trust and Yoga Campus in London.

In seeking therapeutic solutions this course spanned many different schools of yoga and so when choosing suitable Yoga therapy I may draw on many different sources e.g. Viniyoga, Iyengar Yoga, Satyananda Yoga, as well as Ayurvedic principles.

Working closely with people is a rich and rewarding experience and I am deeply moved by peoples' willingness to embrace change and to dedicate at least a small part of their life to yogic practices.
