How can our mind, body, and heart

meet this moment?

yoga, buddhist and embodied wisdom practices for radical times.

 

private instruction

Sarah specializes in designing unique practices tailored to fit individual’s specific needs.

Reasons to Practice Privately:

  • To address the YOUR specific physical injuries, health condition, or psychological demands of your life.

  • To transform your current practice by layering in more depth from a clear, experienced teacher.

  • To be entirely supported in your own private environment through caring, indivdualized attention.

Types of Practice Sarah can offer, in any combination:

  • Alignment based, breath-centered yoga posture practices, adapted to your level of experience, fitness, and interests.

  • Breathing practices that soothe the nervous system and help develop concentration.

  • Meditation practices that help cultivate calmness, mental clarity, insight, confidence, and compassion.

  • Restorative Yoga-- which utilizes many yoga props-- allowing for deep relaxtion, balancing the nervous system and promoting the mind-body's natural healing response.

  • Dharma, or study of yoga & buddhist texts and teachings.

  • Adaptations, such as Chair Yoga; Sarah loves using yoga props, household items, and creativity to transform perceived limitations into a yoga practice.

  • Individualized Teacher Training, helping you to grow in your specific intentions as a yoga teacher.

 

Sarah has been a full time yoga teacher since 2006 and is herself an avid student of all facets of the practice. 

 

She continues to study with the most skillful & renown current teachers of yoga & buddhism.

 

Her private students range from children to elders, from as diverse a background as one can imagine.

 

Her teaching style is grounded, precise, and kind.

Saturday Sangha

( formerly Second Saturday Sangha )

This sangha used to meet on the 2nd Saturday of every month, exploring face to face transmission.  

Now covid-19 is present, and the period of "Home Retreat" has begun.

 

All paradigms are shifting.

 

Our practice is nothing if not pointing us toward meeting the present circumstances

as skillfully as possible:  

with discerning minds and boundless hearts.

The Mission of our Sangha is:​​

to provide a place of refuge where mindful and compassionate folks can

come together

to practice the awakening technologies of yoga, buddhism and embodiment arts.

  Let us meet these moving conditions: Online we go, and now we meet WEEKLY.

                   ~ All Levels Welcome.                  ~ Each Session, Come to all parts or bits. 

      ~ Now that we're online: Drop In and Out as you need by pausing your video at any time. 

Its ok for us to witness you meeting the needs of your children/pets/family/roommates/etc.

   

 ~ These teachings are offered freely, though dana (financial donation)

is always greatly appreciated.

about sarah clark

     Sarah feels that her yoga & buddhist practices offer her basic sanity.  She engages in many dimensions of these awakening technologies- from ethics to asana to seated meditation.  Practicing since 2001, she is relieved to see that these wisdom traditions only go deeper over time, and that they don't make one more special or elevated-- rather they ground us in messy reality and beg us to get to work in the world.  Having a practice & engaging in it with others gives her hope for the future of humankind.

     Sarah's teaching career began upon completion of her 200-hour training at OM Yoga Center in New York City in 2006, whereafter she went on to teach tremendous amounts of yoga 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 continues to offer a full public & private teaching schedule.  Her asana classes are are alignment-based and breath-centric; they employ intelligent sequencing; they relfect her curiousity about how mindfulness seems to balance clarity, sensitivity, and radical acceptancy.  Sarah 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 working very closely with her teacher, Michael Stone of British Columbia until his recent death;  his extraordinary body of work and teachings continue to influence her tremendously.

 

     Sarah is still dancing, enjoys making mindful magic in the kitchen, and loves singing harmonies with her husband.  They are both completely in love with their little girl Tenaya June, who arrived in January 2017.
