About Sarah...

I am a serious, compassionate, and direct Spiritual Teacher and Guide.  I am willing and able to guide you to the Path of Light and Love if YOU choose to honor your Spirit and do the work necessary for true Spiritual Awakening. 


I studied Reiki at Dogca Universal Wellness School of Energy Healing Arts with Dortothea O. Grant.  I have done my personal healing by receiving healing treatments from the Shaman Whole Infinite Transformation and Healing Program.  I have also completed the Reiki Levels I, II and III Reiki Master Practitioner Professional Advanced Intensive Training Program; and Traditional Reiki Master Teacher and Holistic Life Coach Program.

My classes are inspiring, intuitive and educational. Through many years of teaching, I have learned that a Yoga practice must be customized to each individual. Therefore, my classes are designed to build skill and understanding, from posture to posture, and from class to class in order to empower you work with intention, become your own teacher and create a practice that nurtures your Spirit, mind and body.  

I have been practicing Yoga since 2000. I knew then that I would become a teacher, but I also knew that to be a great teacher I had to be a good student.  I completed my first Vinyasa Yoga teacher training with Mandy Grant at Juluka Yoga who inspired me to continue to study Yoga for the rest of my life. I have also studied with Jimmy Barkan, creator of the Barkan method; John Surie, creator of FireShaper and completed the LifePower Yoga teacher training created by Johnny Kest.   As my Yoga practice evolved, I chose to take my advanced Yoga teacher training with Raji Thron at Yoga Synthesis where I was able to dive deeper into the many different styles of Yoga including Structural Yoga therapy, Viniyoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga and pre-natal Yoga. I have also studied Iyengar Yoga with Sharon Cotugno, from whom I learned proper alignment in Yoga poses, and gained a deep understanding of anatomy.


Namaste,

Testimonials


 

"For anyone seeking to not only enhance their Yoga asana practice, but to fully embrace their own Spiritual journey – Bliss Yoga Academy is the place to be! Sarah truly practices what she preaches – she is the “real deal.” She embodies the qualities of a teacher in the truest sense of the word and leads by her own example. Sarah has extensive knowledge about proper alignment in the poses and customizing to the individual, as well as Yogic philosophy and the spiritual principles of Yoga. Her dedication to the practice and commitment to continual learning shine through in her teaching and create a safe space for students of all levels. Perhaps most importantly, she encourages students to develop and trust their own inner wisdom and intuition.  I continue to gain much insight through Sarah’s guidance and consider Bliss Yoga Academy a home away from home. It is unlike any other Yoga studio and radiates with an energy and sense of peace unlike anywhere else. I continue to grow on all levels through her tutelage and I highly recommend Bliss Yoga Academy and Sarah as a teacher."

"From the moment I walked into her studio I knew I chose the right Yoga Studio. Sarah has a wonderful ability to work with students of all levels and give each one what they need. Not only is she a wonderful Yoga teacher, but she is a spiritual inspiration. I have learned so much from her and my practice is continually growing under her tutelage."
Katy D.

"Sarah is a wise, compassionate instructor who cares deeply about her students. Her corrections are spot on and her style is both energetic AND serene. She keeps an eye on each student in the relatively small and lovely space. I have been to a multitude of Yoga classes all over the tri-state area and the country. I would have to say that Sarah is one of the better teachers I have had. She knows how to push us to the perfect edge without risking injury.  I have just recently discovered this small Yoga oasis and I love it!"
Laura R.


"Sarah has integrity in everything she does. Her Yoga Studio is no exception. She holds the space for learning, growing and transformation, all one needs to do is step in with the same intention. I love Sarah's classes, they honor the individual, and the student can make it as challenging as they wish for that day. I always feel changed after class, always for the better."
Jennifer G.


"Bliss Yoga Academy is a really special place. You can feel it from the minute you walk in. Once you experience Sarah, it becomes very obvious how well she knows the body, the poses and yoga. Her cues are like life hacks for poses in the most Yogic way, as they are fueled with knowledge and understanding while being incredibly simple. She will help you connect with your body and mind in ways you never thought possible."
Rebecca G.

"From the first class, I knew I was in the right place! Signed up for 20 more that day over a year ago! Sarah's very special, it's very personal experience that I've not found anywhere else."
Cherie F.

"Pure bliss at Bliss! I absolutely love Sarah and her classes. Sarah truly embraces yoga philosophy- sincerely lives it on and off the mat and teaches with incredible knowledge of the human body and the Iyengar practice. Sarah has consistently thoughtful and creative classes. I love that her studio space is always filled with positive energy and good vibes! Sarah is incredibly respectful and encouraging and her cues are spot on. I love her use of props (bolsters, chairs, straps & blocks) to help facilitate ALL her students to experience any pose to their best ability. Her style is slow and deep and do not be fooled-- NOT EASY! You will work and sweat and then have the best savanna! Bliss Yoga Studio is a little piece of heaven and a sanctuary for all who are looking for a deeper practice and a peaceful place to meditate."
