Sarah O’Connor started practising yoga 16 years ago, trained initially in Anusara Yoga and then with The British Wheel of Yoga. Through her experience, constant practice and development, Sarah has become adept in Pranayama and Meditation. Sarah teaches, and has taught, a huge range of people from athletes to people recovering from chronic illness or operations, to teenagers and octogenarians… plus! She has worked as an antenatal teacher, birth instructor, and birthing partner and is a qualified infant massage instructor.
Sarah’s style has developed with her own experience and personal practice. It has its basis in research – ancient and modern and is a fusion of Hatha, Vinyasa flow, Iyengar, Kundalini, Ying Yang Yoga and Tibetan Buddhism. The styles are fused by the focus of breath within posture work to steady the flow of the mind and her emphasis on safety within individual posture work has become a foundation for developing physical, emotional and spiritual strength.
Sarah believes that there is a yoga for everyone, and that it can benefit everybody’s life, whether recovering from injury, mental illness, operation or as a means to stay fit, challenge yourself at your own pace and of course manage the stress of everyday life. She believes that it is through changing the habits of our mind, that we truly start to feel fully well and happy and move toward self-fulfilment.
