Sarah Spalding

Sarah has been teaching yoga to adults since 2004, and to children since 2006.  Her preferred format for teaching is in workshops and retreats as this allows for a deeper experience of the yoga practice, although she does teach regularly in her hometown of Pedasi, in Panama.  She has a background in dance and psychology, and almost accidentally stumbled upon yoga thanks to her mother’s insistence, at a time when life felt very much like an uphill struggle.  

The powerful transformative effect that yoga practice manifested led Sarah to pursue a yoga treacher training course with Godfrey Devereux, creator of the Dynamic Yoga teaching method, initially simply as a way to deepen her own practice and understanding of yoga.  Her training included apprenticeships at the WindFire Yoga Center between 2004 and 2007.  

Sarah has a passion for travel and exploration, which she applies to her yoga teachings, as she understands yoga posture practice and meditation as forms of inquiry.  The mother of 2 young children, in recent years she has incorporated her own unique experiences as a woman into her teaching, such that one of her main focuses is supporting women and men in creating a relationship of acceptance and trust with their bodies, through yoga,
