Yoga with Sarah includes a practice that focuses on all of you, including your physical, mental, emotional & energetic body.
Meditation is an internal discipline, it begins with withdrawing the senses & turning your attention inward.
You train the mind to have a one-pointed focus for a sustained amount of time.
Until time & space become irrelevant.

Pranayama is most Commonly defined as conscious breathwork.
Prana refers to the vital life force energy & Yama is interpreted to mean 'control'.
Pranayama has also been defined as the cessation of the breath - essentially meaning a way to control or focus on the pause between the inhalation & exhalation.
During your practice, we will use a variety of breath techniques to help practice concentration & to help move your Prana/Energy within.
Mudra translates to mean seal, mark or gesture.
They are generally hand & finger positions practised to help facilitate the flow of energy.
Like two ends of a battery when its right something is sparked, ignited, lit.
Mudras are used to facilitate the flow of your energy - the subtle aspects of your body, helping you on our journey of self-discovery from within.
Mantra is a Sanskrit word translated as Manas.
Mansa = mind
Tra = tool
So literally is a tool for the mind.
Mantra is a sound or vibration that supports your inward journey. Different sounds have different vibration that can support you shift energy & to help with chatter & busyness of the mind.
To help you discover
& connect to the type
of person you really want to be.
It is also a total myth that you need a quiet space, with no distractions, or the perfect moment to roll out your mat to practice.
In the Yin Rooms we celebrate being imperfectly perfect, where kids often pop into the backgrounds, pets come to say hello and yep we even have the odd technological difficulty - we celebrate being imperfectly, perfect!
This is all part of the practice. The practice of non attachment, the practice of living in the moment, the practice of concentration, the practice of non-judgement, the practice of compassion, the practice of well Yoga.
People trying to squeeze 'me time' in between nap times, school drop off & pick-ups or when the kids have finally gone to bed (or are still struggling to sleep - you might find by the end of the practice they have drifted off to lullaby land)

Prerecorded bit size ‘snacks’. Perfect for when you can only squeeze 5 minutes in on those super busy days
20 minutes on the mat. The no excuses practice, do these at any time of the day to feel centred & grounded.
Our unique reality bites practice a 60 minute session to help you get all the stuff done! Alternate between time on the mat & time of the mat. Sometime you can have your cake & eat it to!
A 30 minute session typically done at at the end of the day to help you wind & let it all release before bed. Herbal tea or a cheeky wine are optional accompaniments to these practices !
60 - 75 minute practices. A long format practice great for those times when you really need pause & as the name suggests reset!
The Weekly Live Timetable is published each Sunday night based on Community feedback & requests.
Yin Yoga is primarily a floor-based practise where you focus on
softening the connective 'Yin' tissues in your body.
During the practice, you therapeutically apply gentle stress to the body
whilst the bodies energy system is harmonised.
Yin Yoga is a meditative practice
& often uses props from around the home like cushions & pillows for
added support & comfort, as you immerse yourself into each shape for around 3 - 8 minutes.
We stay focused on how your body feels not how the body looks which means there are zero comparisons.
