Sarah believes that yoga is “99% practice and 1% theory”. 

As a state champion, nationally competitive gymnast, an All-American springboard diver, and a competitive triathlete, Sarah has spent her life exploring her athletic possibilities. A key part of this has been studying the physical world and how to create images and build structures. She has an undergraduate degree from Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Architecture and a Master's degree in Interior Architecture and Design from Drexel University.  

Her classes relate ideas found in architecture and art such as: balance, stability, foundation, and symmetry. As an artist, Sarah specializes in human and animal portraiture, with a penchant for anatomical sketches that fuse yoga asana with classical themes, particularly the Golden Ratio and fractal art.

Sarah has been practicing yoga for 16 years and has studied different styles of yoga such as Yin, Restorative, Ashtanga, and Inversional Flow Vinyasa. She completed her 200-hour teacher training in the Ashtanga tradition at Dhyana Yoga in Philadelphia and is received her 500 hour certification at Yogaworks under the mentorship of Mia Togo.  

As the ‘Body Architect,” Sarah specializes in teaching active & passive mobility, strength, and conditioning for a functional pain free lifestyle. She emphasizes fundamental movements, body weight strengthening, core conditioning, and intelligent movement principles. Work with Sarah to train like an athlete and build a stronger you from the ground up.

 

Stretch Therapy

Stretch therapy is assisted stretching using a combination of passive and dynamic fascial stretching, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) stretching, and therapeutic myo-fascial release paired with deep breathing to help your mind and body reach their deepest state of relaxation.  Make stretch therapy a part of your routine to increase flexibility and mobility, manage injuries and pain, improve posture and breathing, and move & feel better.  Work hard, rest harder.
