Sarah Studebaker first discovered yoga as purely a form of exercise but began to cherish the calm, blissful feeling that it brought to the rest of her life. Through the creation of her own practice, she developed a goal to teach yoga as a way of sharing the joy that she found in this art. She is now a Registered Yoga Teacher and Certified Holistic Health Coach, certified by schools that promote a wide variety of techniques, allowing for her to customize classes to the studentâ€™s needs. She believes that regardless of body type, age, or fitness level anyone can practice and benefit from the powerful art of yoga. For more information visit SarahStudebaker.com.
