Yin and Yang


This class is taught by:

Sarah Walker

"When my yoga journey began, I instantly knew that it was what I was destined to do, and that it would change my life. I was always an active youth, playing many sports, including volleyball during college."
 
"After I lost my athletic activity, I found I was losing my strength, my energy, and mostly myself. I had practiced yoga on and off throughout my 20’s, but didn’t truly grasp the full realm of what yoga offers. In late 2014, I found myself overweight and unhappy in a sedentary lifestyle, I knew I needed a change and nothing seemed to spark that for me. I started regularly working out at the gym, which seemed natural as a former athlete, but it wasn’t enough. I wasn’t changing anything within myself. A few months after that, I was asked if I wanted to attend an intro to yoga class, that happened to be with our very own Lynn Hancock. After that night I was hooked. Something finally clicked. I have continued a regular, almost daily practice since that evening, and not only has it changed my body, but along with that my mind and spirit. I am excited to share with others the love and support that this community offers. Let go, let live, let love!"
 
When Sarah is not on the mat, she enjoys being outdoors, kayaking, cycling, or hiking. Photography, drawing and other artistic activities
keep her busy, as well as lots of DIY projects and home renovations!

“Born with misshapen feet, I spent formative years tripping over my toes and lurching around on crutches. Though surgeries straightened my crooked bones, I grew increasingly disgusted by and disconnected from my own body. Anxiety, depression, and eating disorders were frequent companions from pre-adolescence through adulthood. My first foray into yoga ended with a case of hives, which I used as an excuse to avoid the practice for another fifteen years.
At age forty, I returned to the mat when my workplace offered lunchtime yoga. Despite a lifelong aversion to physical exertion, the serenity that followed each session proved addictive. To my surprise, I even grew to appreciate sore muscles and dripping sweat—although savasana is still one of my favorite poses. Yoga transforms self-consciousness into gratitude, offers healthy tools to cope with stress, and makes me feel at home in my own skin. As my practice continues to evolve, it nourishes my mind, body, and spirit. It is an honor and privilege to share this gift with others.”
 

Off the mat, Rachel cherishes time with her sweet spouse and sassy kitty. She loves teaching, learning, making art, hanging with friends, and being among trees.
WARM ~ Combination of slow flow, ending with restorative postures utilizing props. Great for all levels.
