Sarah Hansen

Sarah discovered yoga in 2000 and sporadically practiced asana alongside her academic studies to beat the stress and take a bit of time away from the books. Fast forward a few years and Sarah ditched academia in favour of the study of yoga- she hasn't looked back since! Sarah’s approach is heavily influenced by the teachings of Desikachar and more recently the principles of Yin yoga. Her primary focus as a teacher is in encouraging her students to find balance, ease and strength in their bodies and in their yoga practice. She teaches mindful movement focused on the individual and aims to create a safe, inclusive, non-competitive, and accepting environment where students can fully explore their bodies and inquire within. Sarah particularly enjoys teaching beginners yoga, helping her students to build confidence in body and mind on the first steps of their yoga journey, and has a specific interest yoga for female bodies, especially during and post pregnancy.

Sarah holds a 200 hour diploma from Camyoga and has undertaken further training with Yoga London. She feels lucky to have studied additionally with teachers such as Tara Fraser and Annie Carpenter and is grateful to the many teachers, and yoga friends, in Cambridge and London who have shaped her practice and teaching style.Aside from her yoga teaching, Sarah works for a campaign group and writes for a number of feminist blogs and websites.
