Your Instructor - Sarah

I used to be a National Team Kayaker and trainings over the years had made me very stiff. This lead me to take on yoga classes in the hope of gaining some flexibility. I started off with Bikram Yoga and after practising almost daily for a year, I became a “Yoga addict” and decided to take up TTCs to deepen my practice and knowledge.

I started teaching barre because I like the fact that it is a low impact but full body workout that works on muscle groups that you never knew existed. The repetitive movements, pulses and isometric holds coupled with dynamic music is an experience that you will never have in any other workouts and it leaves you feeling energised and refreshed after a class. I enjoy pilates, music and dance so barre is definitely the perfect combination of all these!

Sarah’s qualifications:

  • RYT-200hr (Yoga Alliance)
  • 200hr Yin Yoga (Yoga Alliance)
  • Aerial Yoga (YACEP)
  • Wheel Yoga Certified (Yoga Alliance)
