Sarah’s interest in yoga began as a child copying poses from her Grandmother’s yoga books. After graduating from Business School with an Honours Degree, Sarah was an Underwriter in the City for several years until she nearly lost her first child during a traumatic birth. She began to reevaluate her whole life after that and embarked on a new journey to rebuild her health and well being.
Sarah continues to inspire students across the globe that it is possible under all circumstances to find their way to lead a more fulfilling life filled with compassion, ease and grace. As the Buddha said, “Knowing the mind, Shaping the mind and Freeing the mind” is the doorway to awakening to the root of happiness that we long for. Most of us will have experienced enough unhappiness and dissatisfaction with our lives that we look for inspiration to find the inner peace and confidence to allow us to live our lives as who we truly are, to our fullest potential, realising our hopes, dreams and aspirations.
Sarah was instrumental in bringing yoga to the community in Sydney for seniors with major health issues but equally important to her has been introducing yoga to children at a young age, including her own. She introduced yoga as an enrichment program as part of the school curriculum to the local Middle School where she lives in England which made headline news in the local Citizen newspaper and taught ‘tween’ yoga for many years.
She has worked and trained in both Pre and Post Natal Yoga (Birthlight) enabling her to teach and include women a safe yoga practice at any stage of their lives.
Sarah Lo is a leading Senior Teacher Trainer with Yoga Alliance USA and UK. She has several thousand hours of both study and teaching with a wide range of teachers and fields of study. She is also a Certified Integral Development Coach (New Ventures West) and member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
Sarah has been personally endorsed by Sarah Powers and has gained her Accreditation as an Insight Yoga Institute (IYI) teacher, one of just a few teachers in the world to receive this honour. She mentors teachers studying for their IYI accreditation. She has trained in Anatomy with Paul Grilley and continues to study with Donna Farhi in kinaesthetic acuity in both movement and restorative based practices.
Sarah offers Life Coaching and Mentoring to Teachers needing support in development of themselves as professionals and to enable women in particular to find the courage to use their ‘authentic voices’ in a more powerful way in their work. She believes that having a Coach or Mentor is an essential means of support and pivotal in the growth and development of teachers who often find themselves isolated and lacking the confidence to move forward with their work and to share the knowledge they already have.
She currently teaches a regular weekly Yin class at Triyoga London, Soho on Tuesday when she is in the U.K.
