About Sarah Clark: Sarah is smitten by the many dimensions of a whole yoga practice- from ethics to asana to seated meditation. 15 years into her own practice, she is relieved to see that yoga and buddhist practices are like bottomless rabbit holes that seem to only go deeper over time. It keeps her curiosity piqued and gives her hope for the future of humankind.After completing her 200-hour training at OM Yoga Center in 2006, Sarah went on to teach an tremendous amounts of yoga mostly at OM Yoga Center, Dance New Amsterdam, New York University and privately. Ever the student, Sarah practiced yoga and meditation with the entire OM staff (particularly Cyndi Lee, David Nictern, Sarah Trelease, Christie Clark, and Joe Miller) & many special guests like Roshi Pat Enkyo O’Hara and Sharon Salzberg. She is certified in Relax & Renew® restorative yoga with Judith Lasater and her teaching was developed greatly by the guidance of Cyndi Lee. During this time Sarah participated whole heartedly in the modern dance community in NYC.
On July 4th, 2011 she relocated to San Diego, CA and is continues a full public & private teaching schedule. Her asana classes are are alignment-based and breath-centric; they employ intelligent sequencing with an aim toward embodying mindfulness by balancing clarity with sensitivity. Sarah also created Interconnected Yoga Teacher Training in San Diego, and holds regular workshops on meditation, dharma, pranayama, and yoga teacher development. In her relocating westward, she began more intensively studying Canadian teacher Michael Stone; Sarah is deeply moved by his offering of the keen intersection of yoga & buddhist practices, insights of the west, and waking up in our daily messy lives.
Sarah is still dancing, singing with her husband, and making mindful magic in the kitchen.
