Sara about yoga: "Movement and health have always been an interest of mine for as long as I can remember. I have dance and equestrianism in my background, but I have always had a curious mind and always wanted to test pretty much everything. It is specifically curiosity and knowledge that gets a lot of attention in my own yoga and training practice as well as in my teaching. In my teaching, I focus heavily on healthy movement theory and mindfulness - how you can find the interaction between the inner and the outer. I want yoga to be for the individual and its conditions, not the other way around. Yoga is, and should be, empowering."
