Sarah Hyde - Group Fitness instructor, Yoga: Vinyasa
I became a yoga student in 2012, at a time when anxiety and depression were taking over my life. I’ve always enjoyed a good, sweaty workout, but I was looking for something more contemplative, something physically challenging that would also support me on my inward journey of healing and growth. My yoga practice hasn’t just helped – it’s changed me and made my life so much richer in ways I could not even have predicted. When nothing else can quiet the mind or still the body, coming to your mat can. All you have to do is show up.
Despite a fear of being upside-down (I didn’t even do cartwheels as a kid), I completed my RYT 200 in April of 2019. Becoming a teacher has deepened my practice and given me the opportunity to share my love of yoga with others, many of whom may never have tried it or had access to it before. I practice vinyasa, hatha, yin and restorative yoga. I teach a strong physical practice, rooted in all eight limbs of yoga, with a focus on breath and body connection and listening to and honoring your own body and what it needs. Also, I will laugh in my class, and I hope you laugh with me!
I love Radiohead, knitting, travel and the color gray. When I’m not on my mat, you’ll find me sweating in the gym, listening to podcasts, or snuggling with my dogs. I am so grateful for this community and eager to share this life-changing practice with each of you.
