About the teacher, Sarah Butler:
Originally from London, Sarah has lived in the Bay Area for many years. As a single Mom, she spent many years working for attorneys in order to raise her son and daughter, but about seven years ago she realized she wanted to change directions and teach yoga for the rest of her life. In 2012, she trained under Brian Monnier, who studied for many years with Tony Sanchez. This yoga is based on the Bishnu Ghosh lineage. Sarah has taught this method of hot yoga, along with Yin workshops, at California Yoga Company since 2012. In August, 2014, she completed an intensive week of Yin Yoga training in Vancouver, Canada, under Bernie Clark who trained with Sarah Powers, and following that training she completed the Yogaworks 200 hours, RYT/Yoga Alliance. She has also participated in meditation workshops and in 2017 she completed a 30 hour intensive Accessible Yoga Training, along with meditation and chanting, at the beautiful Sivananda Ashram Yoga Farm in Grass Valley. From March, 2017 until its closing at the end of December, 2018, Sarah taught Yin classes and Yin workshops at Yoga of Sausalito. From January, 2019, she will be teaching Yin classes and Chair Yoga at Sausalito Parks and Recreation, as well as offering private one on one or couples classes at her home studio or in your home.
Sarah loves teaching a combination of the physical and spiritual aspects of a complete yoga practice. Sarah believes that everyone in every body can benefit from yoga and by creating a mindful practice, with hand on adjustments and modifications if necessary, each student can move towards their full potential.
