My name is Sarah, and I’ve been a yoga student for about a decade. I say “student” deliberately – with five-thousand years of material to study, few can claim to be yoga “masters.” I started my yoga journey at a Moksha studio because yoga sounded interesting, I knew nothing about it, and the studio was close to my house. I may not have had profound reasons for becoming involved, but I am grateful these many years later for having done it.
I studied for my instructorship with an amazing teacher in Toronto. Susie Dias has encyclopedic knowledge and a very down-to-earth approach, and runs teacher-training programs that bring together diverse groups from all over the country.
I trained in the Hatha tradition for a number of reasons. In fact, when I started personal training over a decade ago, I realized quickly that I needed new tools to use when working with rehabilitation clients. Yoga was the answer.
I’ve continued with my own sadhana over the years, and it never ceases to amaze me how progress in yoga can be measured in so many ways – minute to minute, by the day, weekly, and from year to year. It is my pleasure to introduce you to a discipline that has given me so much, and I welcome your questions and comments.
