"Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self" - The Bhagavad Gita
A hopeful wanderer, Sara has spent the best part of her 20's and 30's exploring the world. Leaving everything she knew in Australia, she set off with her backpack, trusting that the universe would take her where she needed to be... After months of exploring she stumbled into London and that's where life started to fall into place for her. Four years later, she now calls London her second home. What Sara came to realise about herself during her wandering years, was that she was looking to satisfy something that not even the seven wonders of the world could quench; she came to realise she had to lose herself to find herself.
What she found along the way is something profound and life-shifting. She was led to the beautiful healing practice of yoga and has now made it her ambition to share its benefits with her community. Completing her first 200hr yoga teacher training with The Yoga People in Ubud, Bali, Sara brings to her teaching personal and healing experience. Both Yin and Yang forms of yoga are taught as a moving meditation - so that breath, movement and focus flow into one.
Forever an explorer, Sara now enjoys exploring the many styles of yoga - Yin, Vinyasa Flow, Ashtanga and Jivamukti - and how they have changed her perception of herself and of life, all from the viewpoint from her yoga mat. She is forever grateful to her teachers Dulce Aguilar and Jamie Clarke, and for all the wonderful people she has crossed paths with on her journey, who through their encouragement and support, have taught her how to believe in herself and let her light shine through.
Sara firmly believes that yoga is for everyone, regardless of their appearance, age or physical ability. Palace Yoga centres around practicing in a welcoming and genuine community environment.
