Sarah Sumner

Sarah Sumner believes that yoga is a one of the greatest teachers of compassion, and crafts intelligent sequences to expand the body, heart, and mind to find greater empathy on and off the mat. By focusing on the reasons why we do the asana poses, her students surprise themselves with their willingness to dive deeper in them. She received her 200hr from Laughing Lotus, which helped her understand the importance of fluidity, joy, and intention in every practice.

After receiving her BFA from NYU Tisch School of the Arts, Sarah incorporates her four years of breath, voice and body training into the asana practice, offering her students creative ways to tune in. She is extra sensitive to combine specific alignment cues to protect the body because she first came to yoga because of her severe case of Scoliosis.

Through strong postures and a fierce devotion to the breath, she hopes every student leaves the room stronger and more empowered.

She attempts and hopes to help the students experience some sort of transformation while they entrust their precious presence with her letting her guide them through their inhales and exhales. She got certified in 2007 then received her 800 certification shortly thereafter. She thanks her teachers Sharon Gannon and David Life along with so many others - her beloved mentor Rima Rabbath for seeing her highest potential and always staying with her.
