Sarah has been a teacher in the public school setting since 2003, working with young children of different abilities, specifically, Autism Spectrum Disorder. She has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Early Childhood Education and a Masters Degree in Special Education. Ten years ago after a back injury, she turned to yoga as an alternative intervention and was immediately hooked. She noticed the benefits of her practice went far beyond the physical realm. Yoga improved her mind/body connection and wanted others to benefit from what she had learned. She introduced yoga within her classroom and noticed an immediate change within her students. Disregulation and negative behaviors decreased and attention to tasks and overall function in her classroom increased. She is a firm believer that having a balance between the mind and body is a fundamental key for overall performance in what we call life, regardless of our age. Dr. Temple Grandin, a well known speaker with autism says, "There needs to be a lot more emphasis on what a child can do instead of what he cannot do." This quote translates beautifully to your yoga practice. You CAN do it and Sarah is excited to help you get there, wherever there might be for you.
