Sarah has been practising yoga for 30 years and teaching for 15 years, and during this time has explored many styles of yoga. She was a physical education teacher from 1983 to 1997. In 2002 she developed rheumatoid arthritis, and due to the understanding gained in rehabilitating herself, she has focused for the last six years on individual sessions in yoga therapy/remedial yoga, while also in her teaching introducing intelligent alignment in postures to preserve the integrity of the joints and prevent compression. The breath is in integral part of her sessions, both in understanding the mechanics and in balancing the mind/body relationship. She has been travelling to India regularly since the late 1970s, and has a particular interest in eastern philosophy, with more recent guidance from Swami Veda Bharati of The Himalayan Institute. She has a BWY Diploma, and is registered with Yoga Alliance as a 500-hour teacher.
