After many years traveling the world and enjoying her love of board sports, Sara began her relationship with yoga during a trip to Australia in 2006, where she fell in love not only with the practice, but also with the joys of an easygoing and relaxed lifestyle, close to nature and the ocean.
Choosing to embrace this way of life, she decided to move to the Canary Islands, closer to her home (Italy) and keep following her dreams. Initially qualifying as an Ashtanga Vinaysa Yoga Teacher, recognized by Yoga Alliance International, at It’s Yoga Gran Canaria, Sara teaches a dynamic style of yoga based on breath, bandhas and drishti.
Furthering her studies, she has achieved an advanced level with 50 hours intensive training in Florence in the practice of Rocket Yoga. This dynamic style created by Larry Schultz (called ‘bad man’ of yoga by his Guru Sri K. Pattabhi Jois) in California is a routine and series of postures based on a modification of the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga primary and intermediate series. These energetic routines are appropriate for all levels of students and through providing different ways to modify the classical poses, Sara ensures that the benefits of the poses are transmitted to all to renew vitality and energy.
This vibrant routine is called the “Rocket” because, “it gets you there faster.” Rocket is designed to wake up the nervous system and feed it the precious prana it craves while promoting a spirit of change and freedom in the practice.
Sara also teaches Yin yoga, slow-paced style of yoga, that works deeper in the tissues with passive poses held for a long time, about 5 minutes. She added yin yoga to her practice, because she believes that we need to balance between Yin and Yang in our daily life, as in our practice.
WE ARE OUR BREATH, not our body, not our mind. When you practice, listen the music of your breath and dance.
