Sarah Lo is a Senior Yoga Teacher Trainer E-RYT 500 with Yoga Alliance USA and UK. Sarah has been personally endorsed and certified by Sarah Powers to teach ‘Insight Yoga’ from Insight Yoga Institute, one of just a few teachers in the world to receive this accreditation. She is also a Certified Professional Coach (PCC) and a member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and brings a deep level of skills to her Yin teacher trainings from her coaching background. Sarah has studied extensively with Paul Grilley, Donna Farhi and other leading Yoga teachers for over 25 years. Her interest in yoga began as a child copying poses from her Grandmother’s yoga books. At school her studies and interest were in Physics, Chemistry and Biology and later at University she studied at Business School graduating with a Bachelor of Arts Honours Degree.
Sarah was both a Broker and an Underwriter at Lloyd’s of London in the City for 10 years until she nearly lost her life and her first child during a traumatic birth following a misdiagnosis. She began to reevaluate her whole life after that and embarked on a new journey to rebuild her health and well being.
Sarah now leads accredited 100 hour Yin Yoga Teacher Trainings in Levels 1, 2 and 3 at Triyoga in London and internationally having lived and taught extensively in the U.K., Europe, USA, Australia and Singapore for the past 15 years. Her trainings are endorsed by Sarah Powers from the Insight Yoga Institute. The 100 hour training can be taken in 3 separate stages allowing time for integration and learning.
Sarah offers Life Coaching and Mentoring to teachers from her trainings 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.
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.
