Sarah Haughton, a certified E-RYT 200 through Yoga Alliance, has over 500 hours of yoga trainings, with an emphasis in yoga therapy. Her current emphasis in training and teaching is inspired by John Friend and Desi Springer’s Sridaiva Yoga “The Roots.” She received her first 200 hour training from Yoga to the People, New York City. Sarah then completed 200 hours Anusara trainings with Michael Fukumara, plus 30 hours of Yoga and Therapy training and completed level 2 Anusara Teacher Training with Markin and Jordan Kirk. Sarah sends much gratitude and love to all of her many teachers of yoga.
Sarah’s yoga practice is a very important part of her daily life in maintaining freedom from chronic facial pain, a condition named Trigeminal Neuralgia. Sarah uses yoga as an opportunity to delight in the experience of the body and breath and to strengthen both body and mind.
Sarah discovered yoga as a teenager, and continued to return to the mat throughout her life, using yoga as a balance to rugby, kickboxing, running, and softball. Yoga was a huge tool for her in recovery from an ACL injury and surgery, and she has continued to explore the many ways that a consistent and dedicated yoga practice can heal and restructure both body and mind.
