Feel Alive In Your Body
Yoga is your breath.
Yoga is your body.
Yoga is you.
Everyone can benefit from yoga! I've taught every age range, from 90+ to 4-year-olds, and I can tell you firsthand that moving the body using the intelligence of yoga as your guide will lead to feeling more at peace and alive in the body. The yoga that you practice is meant to support you. Let go of the idea of "forcing". This practice is about embracing each pose and expressing it in the way that most benefits your body. As you continue to practice, your expression of the pose transforms. Being successful at yoga is defined as "how much ease do you feel while holding a pose?" The more that we tap into the present moment and accept it for everything that it has to offer, the more we will feel the joy that is already present and overflowing. We all deserve this and owe this spaciousness not only to ourselves, but to those around us and ultimately to the world we live in.

Are you looking to bring yoga to your workplace? Yoga at the workplace relieves stress and tension and encourages focus and productivity. The physical practice of yoga is excellent at addressing wrist, neck and shoulder issues that often arise with computer use. People appreciate yoga in the morning as a way to foster a more mindful day, in the afternoon as a mid-day refresh or in the evening to unwind.
Yoga for Youth
Youth need yoga, too! Sari is a Yoga and Mindfulness teacher to teens. She has developed curriculum and taught at high schools such as Lighthouse Community Charter School in Oakland. And she has taught yoga during the summer at UC Berkeley for the internationally attended summer camp, Summerfuel . She got her grounding in teaching youth from learning and teaching with the amazing Bay Area nonprofit RISE Yoga for Youth. While teens is a special age group to offer yoga to, Sari also teaches students as young as 6 years old at workshops and summer camp programs. Contact Sari to inquire about bringing yoga to your school or summer camp!
