Sarah started studying Iyengar Yoga in 1992 with Brooke Myers and Kevin Gardiner. She went on to study with Senior Teacher Mary Dunn, who was her mentor through her Introductory level assessments. Mary Dunn and Senior Teacher James Murphy conducted Sarah’s Teacher Training at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of New York.
She began teaching Iyengar Yoga in 1995.
The demands of Sarah’s 20-year career as a professional modern dancer led her to Iyengar Yoga. “The wholeness of the practice for both mind and body helped create balance and stability for me while in a physically demanding and stressful field,” she says.
Sarah holds a BFA in Dance from the North Carolina School of the Arts. She performed for over a decade with Tere O’Connor Dance and served as its rehearsal director until 2005.
She is the mother of a wonderful teenage daughter who has happily assisted in many of the association’s Yogathons over the years.
Sarah’s teaching style reflects her calm nature. Her years of experience in studying the body in action informs her classes with clarity and understanding.
She will make her first trip to India to study with the Iyengar Family at R.I.M.Y.I. in July 2014.
