About Sarah Sheehan:
Sarah has practiced yoga for many years as a student and did her 200-hour teacher training 8 years ago. When she was first studying yoga in the 90’s her teacher stressed the importance of listening deeply to the body and how it responds to movement and stillness. She practices and teaches with curiosity for how the body responds to breath, thought, and movement and is always learning new things about these connections. Sarah did additional training with Mind Body Solutions in 2015 which opened up a new door to adaptive yoga for all bodies and abilities.
