Yoga found Sarah in 2004 when triathlon training began to cause wear and tear injuries on a consistent basis. As a collegiate athlete, elite triathlete and USA Triathlon and Cycling certified coach, Sarah recognized the need to have balance in the mind and body in order to be consistently strong.
In 2008, she received her 500-hour Yoga Alliance Certification through Sunstone Yoga in Dallas, TX, and has been teaching and continually learning ever since. Sarah teaches Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Hot, Itsy Bitsy and Restorative Yoga. She conducts a range of specialty workshops including: Yoga for Athletes, Ageless Yoga, Pilates/Yoga combo classes and Guided Meditation classes.
With a B.S. in Health Promotion, encouraging and enabling others to live a healthy, balanced lifestyle is what Sarah is truly passionate about. Her passion for fitness doesn't stop with yoga. As the Head Triathlon Coach with Greenville Cycling & Multi-Sport, preparing endurance athletes of varying levels to reach their racing goals is a mission she thoroughly enjoys. She is also a certified SPINNING® instructor and is certified in the STOTT Pilates® method. She has experience providing Wellness Consulting services to businesses looking to improve the overall health and well being of their workforce.
Sarah's classes offer the opportunity to build physical and mental strength combined with the balance of finding ways to let go and relax. She focuses on working with her clients from the outside in so they may leave class feeling rejuvenated, stronger and more at peace. Her ultimate goal is to encourage them to take their positive energy off of the mat and share it with others.
Sarah teaches the YPB Fusion classes, an intelligent blend of yoga, Pilates and barre technique, as well as performs postural analysis clinics.
