About Me

Hi, I'm Sarah, mum of two boys and former education consultant turned yoga teacher. I left mainstream education in 2012 to travel Latin America, after more than a decade of a successful & highly pressured teaching career. It was while travelling in Latin America that I discovered yoga as a way of life & an antidote to the all to common stress and burnout of modern day life. 


I qualified as a yoga teacher in 2013 and later completed my advanced training in India, studying the styles of Iyengar and Ashtanga with focus on alignment and adjustment, practicing under Gurus in Mysore and learning Thai yoga massage to enhance my anatomical knowledge.

I structure sessions along the lines of Vinyasa and Hatha, although I also specialise in Yin, Yoga for Women’s Bodies, Pre- & Post-natal Yoga (with or without baby) & I’m a qualified Toddler Yoga teacher with years of experience in nursery settings.

I ran the first regular Dad & Baby Yoga class in South London and love to support new parents, walking with them for a while on this exciting road, specifically offering advice and support with regards to postpartum recovery.

​My classes are dynamic yet playful, flowing but structured, encouraging students to feel grounded and energised.
