Hi, I’m Sarah, co-founder & director of Yogasara CIC. I am a senior teacher and a Yoga Elder with the IYN Independent Yoga Network.
I offer 1-1 yoga with structural bodywork techniques, reflexology & embodied psychotherapy. I often offer a synergy of these approaches to provide individualised, bespoke sessions that we decide about together.
1-1 Yoga can enable you to deepen your practice so that you can understand how yoga can best serve you as an individual. 1-1 can also enable you to discover the deeper, therapeutic application and support you on many levels.
How I can help- Along with over 20 years personal practice of yoga, conscious dance & meditation including several teacher trainings in different styles, I have extensive Anatomy & physiology training from Anatomy Trains UK and ongoing training in Body Mind Centering. With a background in nursing- I understand health from an allopathic perspective and have integrated a broad knowledge base -I worked in many different healthcare settings as a nurse so have encountered/treated a wide range of conditions.
I have developed a progressive holistic approach where I apply my professional & personal experience of health and wellbeing- Ive had my share of health issues, including a congenital heart condition which I manage really well (much to the confusion of my cardiologist!) largely through yoga. Therapeutic Yoga can benefit any one who is interested in understanding how the mind-body-emotion-spirit interplay.
I am very experienced working with injury and a whole range of other health conditions. I am passionate about making the benefits of yoga accessible to all no matter what state you are in; physically, mentally or emotionally- there is something in the Yoga Medicine cabinet for everyone!
As old as the hills, rooted in the wisdom of Chinese medicine, Reflexology is a deeply relaxing treatment that involves stimulating reflex points on the feet to facilitate the bodies innate healing mechanisms. I combine this with lower leg massage rooted in Structural Integration techniques to bring a deep feeling of relaxation and sometimes also include head neck and jaw if appropriate to give a top to toe healing experience!
Embodied Counselling & Psychotherapy
I believe we are all capable of living a fulfilling and meaningful life. There has been a much needed paradigm shift in recent years where increasingly we understand how important it is to integrate the mind-body & spirit in order to find ‘healing’ or wholeness.
I work integratively, informed by and drawing on Internal Family Systems, Drama Therapy, Family Constellations, Somatic experiencing, Embodied Relational Therapy theory, and my professional training in Yoga & Movement Medicine. I am currently in the process of writing an Embodied Yoga Therapy Diploma training course which Yogasara will offer in Spring 2022.
I work from the premise that the mind-body-emotions and spirit/soul are interactive aspects of being and one could understand this as a transpersonal approach. I welcome exploration of mind-body & spirit & we may use imagination as an invaluable tool for healing. I sometimes incorporate my bodywork training in Structural Integration (similar to massage but more specific) when/if appropriate.
The evolving world of counselling & psychotherapy has led to a more Neurobiologically informed approach, meaning we are understanding more and more how our conscious and unconscious stories/beliefs are ‘stored’ in the brain & body and how to help. I have found that freedom, healing and greater love comes through the re-writing of our story in our heads, hearts and bodies.
I take a creative and curious approach to working out together the most effective way to do this. I offer a loving, supportive, well held relationship for you to explore what you need to flourish in all areas of your life. I have regular professional supervision to support me to offer you the strongest container I can for your wellbeing.
I have experience working with people from all walks of life for all kinds of reasons. I specialise in; addiction, eating disorders, PTSD & Complex trauma, anxiety, depression, loss of purpose, relationship difficulties, abuse-physical, emotional or sexual, bereavement, self esteem, feeling ‘stuck’, loss, transitions.
