Sarah was born in the U.K. but is a child of the world. Her passion in life has been to travel, meet new people and experience as much as possible. She has spent most of the last 19 years travelling, living and working in the Caribbean, Italy, Greece, Australia, South East Asia, Spain, East Africa, India, Nepal, Bali and many other countries. Whilst living and working overseas she has gathered varied skills including working in the travel industry in Italy, teaching English for a charity in Nepal, working on an ecological project in Bali, raising funds and distributing shoes for a children’s charity in East Africa, training as primary school teacher, managing restaurants and even had her own cake business in the Caribbean. Her experiences have given her a broad love for the planet, its wonderful people and a better understanding of our interconnectedness. Her favourite thing in life is her love of people and to help them in any way she can to reach their best potential, either through teaching, charity work or simply by listening and trying to accommodate their needs in her job.
It was during her 7 years living in the Caribbean that she began her health and spiritual journey. After running a successful business working ridiculously long hours and not looking after herself enough, she became quite sick. Suddenly her health and vitality became paramount and she began looking at more healthy, sustainable ways of living. She discovered yoga and the power it brings to connect the mind, body, breath and spirit. She also discovered healthier ways of eating through the health food movement that was sweeping the island. Sarah would go on many yoga retreats herself to rejuvenate, when it suddenly occurred to her, why was she going away on holiday to be healthy, why couldn’t it be a part of her everyday life? So she took the plunge and quit her job to go volunteer in various yoga retreats across Spain, including this one, in a bid to broaden her understanding of healthy eating, to increase her yoga practise of 9 years by training as a Ashtanga Vinyasa and Yin yoga teacher in India, and to see if she could find a way to make it her lifestyle everyday. She was blessed to discover Azulfit and hasn’t looked back since. You can find her local classes in York and her Mandala artwork on My Mandala Yoga.
