In addition to being a trained yoga instructor, Sarah has been trained in Buddhist Insight Meditation and has studied psychology at the graduate level. All of this knowledge makes her works incredibly valuable for both seasoned and aspiring yogis. In addition to the physical aspect of yoga, her in-depth training allows her to provide great insight into the psychological aspect of the practice as well.
Sarah feels that enlivening the physical and pranic bodies, as well as learning to meet our psychological reactivity is paramount for preparing one to deepen and nourish insights into one’s essential nature – a natural state of awareness. She has completed Level 3 of Internal Family Systems Therapy training and been a student of Transpersonal Psychology for 28 years. She also draws from her in-depth training in the Vipassana, Tantric and Dzogchen practices of Buddhism.
Her main influences have been Tsoknyi Rinpoche, Jennifer Welwood, Lama Tsultrim Allione, Bhante Gunaratana, Lama Pema Dorje, Stephen and Martine Batchelor, B. Alan Wallace, and Anam Thubten.
