Jivamukti is a physically and intellectually stimulating vinyasa style of yoga that integrates the physical, philosophical and spiritual aspects of yoga. Like ashtanga yoga, Jivamukti yoga can include hands-on assists to help students find alignment – only with students’ consent, of course. Classical yoga teachings, drawn from a monthly focus, stream through the class in a way that is relevant to modern day life. Each class grounds itself in 14 key elements and involves Sanskrit, chanting, teachings, and flowing asana sequences set to uplifting music, with meditation and a deep relaxation to close.
Jivamukti Yoga is a thorough, vigorous vinyasa practice whose teachers adhere to five tenets: ahimsa (non-violence), bhakti (devotion), meditation, nada (sacred sound), and study of yogic texts.
Whether small or large, Sarah’s classes feel personal and create a safe environment to let your true self shine through, providing a path to apply yoga in your everyday life. Like many who practice at the Still & Moving Center, Sarah is an ocean-loving yogi. She moved to Hawaii in 2002 to attend graduate school at UH, specializing in coral reef ecology. When life subsequently carried her to the east coast she was introduced to, and became a dedicated student of, the Jivamukti style of yoga. Studying with the founders, David Life and Sharon Gannon, and under the rigorous and inspiring mentorship of Andrea Boyd, Sarah received her certification to teach Jivamukti in 2011. Since then, Sarah has augmented her yoga practice and teachings with the study of massage therapy.
