Sara uses her practice to ground herself wherever she is.
Sara has been practicing for 14 years and teaching in Baja and BC since 2013. She took her first RYT-200hr training in Hatha and Vinyasa, and then went on to train with Ana Forrest in the RYT-200hr foundation teacher training and the RYT-80hr advanced teacher training (https://www.forrest.yoga). She then also took the Yoga Outreach Core Training for accessible Yoga (https://yogaoutreach.com). Sara uses her practice to ground herself wherever she is, assist through injuries and life changes, and she hopes to inspire others to do the same. She studies complimentary and integrative medicine at Pacific Rim College in Victoria, and is nearing the completion of her diploma in herbal medicine.

What’s something that restores you? Being in nature in general, but specifically I love kiteboarding! Kiting always makes me feel alive and free. The physicality output and the cognitive focus it takes to ride brings me back into myself.
How do you recognize when you’re stressed? When I’m stressed I can’t sleep! Sleep is a huge root to wellness and as soon as I feel restless at night I know that as a sign to slow down and practice extra self care.
Looking back, what do you admire most about your childhood self? When I was a child I was extremely shy, but this also made me quite observant. I was very internal and spent a lot of time watching other people and listening.
