I have been practicing yoga for 10 years. It all started when my daughter forced me (yes, she literally pulled me out of bed, handed me a mat, towel, water, and my car keys) to try this “hot” yoga class, which I thought was a crazy idea. I had never done yoga, let alone, a “hot” one. But I fell in love with it instantly, walking out with tears in my eyes from that very first experience and feeling an overwhelming closeness to God.

When I’m not doing yoga, I’m doing Zumba and other strength-building classes. It’s all about fun and keeping our bodies moving. Namaste!

FYI…my favorite pose is Plank and Side Plank (Vasisthasana), so be ready to do a lot of this in my class.

There is nothing like hot yoga that gives me that feeling of serenity and I am so excited to be a part of the Serenity family! I have been taking yoga on and off since college and teaching since 2017 at different places around Santa Clarita. I love the healing energy that a yoga practice provides, not just for yourself but also for others. We are different every day and so is our practice and that practice is what teaches us to be better people. I live with my amazing husband and our dog, and we love to walk, hike, run, and travel. I can’t live without music, all different types, and believe smiles and hugs are the best medicine. Hope to see you on the mat!

Born and bred in England, California became my home after years of backpacking around the world. I entered my first yoga class, twenty-five years ago with my sister Lyn (Hatha Yoga teacher in Ireland), an Iyengar class, taught by Laura Faye in Venice, CA. Both of us were instantly hooked!! We continued to go to every class we could find, as well as, attended numerous workshops.

Twelve years later, I moved to Santa Clarita, CA, where I pursued Vinyasa Flow and Jval. Finally, in 2016, I completed my first 200 hours of teacher training in Hatha Yoga. Immediately following that training, I completed a Vinyasa Flow teacher training all certified with Yoga Alliance. Then, I became certified in Yoga Nidra through the California College of Ayurveda. I have since continued attending any yoga workshops I can find.

My hot yoga journey began in 2010, when I tried hot yoga for the first time. From the beginning, I loved the heat, the breathing, the mindfulness of the practice, and the sweating. Within a few months of practicing, I could see noticeable changes in my flexibility and endurance while feeling a new sense of calmness. Needless to say that I have become an avid yogi, practicing hot yoga regularly.

In 2017, through the encouragement of my teachers, I decided to complete the 200-hour yoga training and become an Alliance Certified yoga instructor. Since then, it has been my honor to share this mind, body, and spirit experience with others and joyfully witness the positive impact that yoga has on my fellow Yogis.

My love of yoga began over 20 years ago. I found peace and balance through my practice, and have always looked forward to time on my mat. My practice helps my spirit grow, makes me more compassionate, and helps me become the best version of myself. For me, yoga is exercise, a massage, and therapy all rolled into one!

My Vinyasa flow classes are available to students at every level of their practice. I especially love inversions and arm balances. In my free time, I love to cook, read, and watch my son play baseball.

The positive changes I saw in myself inspired me to become an instructor ten years ago. I received my 200-hour certification through YogaWorks and love to take workshops to grow my practice.

Come flow with me!

I was introduced to hot yoga in 2003 and instantly knew I needed this. Yoga helped me recover from a 40-foot fall in 2008, still helps me deal with difficult tragedies, and provides me with tools to overcome obstacles. It has brought balance into my life and a mindful perspective on how I view the world. Yoga allows me to live simply and let go of toxic energy. Through this, I get to know my True-Self. I have traveled a lot of the world. I’ve lived in the Caribbean and Peru, and hope to one day share my practice with as many people as possible; to Grow, Inspire, and Transcend. Namaste.

There have been times in my life that I found myself aware that I was led to the exact place I should be. A place I longed for, but consciously never knew it. Thirty years ago, in NYC, I was invited to my first yoga class and I experienced this knowing that I was exactly where I should be. Yoga opened a whole new world to me that helped me to move through life with more ease and grace while keeping me grounded. However, over the years, I would find myself going in and out of my practice.

When I was pregnant with my son, I went through a deep self-reflection and realized that I would float away from my practice when life got too busy or super challenging. The times I needed it most were when I would disconnect from it. Well, I made a promise to myself to not let that happen again. That promise led me to teacher training. What better way to stay accountable than to help guide others through their practice?

I’m certified in Hatha, Hot Yoga, Restorative, Yin, Meditation, and Sound Healing. It is my hope that my classes offer a place to come and slow down, be in the moment, open your heart, breathe deeply, and explore your practice. Namaste~

When I first tried yoga, I thought it wasn’t for me. Everyone was sitting on the floor stretching and looking so relaxed. As I sat on the floor, my hips and lower back were screaming. I felt like I was failing at yoga. Fortunately, I found a hot yoga class and we started class standing up. By the end of that first 90 minutes in the heat (even though I sort of wanted to throw up), I was surprised to find I could sit relatively comfortably on the floor. So, I decided to keep trying. Soon enough, the heat didn’t bother me, and not only could I move well in class but I could easily touch my toes any random time of the day.

I am so grateful for all the yoga teachers that helped me get to where I am. I enjoy helping others feel better and move better. My goal is to provide a yoga experience that challenges experienced yogis in new ways but also allows newbies to feel welcome and successful. 

Sarah is trained and experienced in One-on-One Stretching, Pilates, and numerous kinds of Yoga including hot, accessible, restorative, chair, sculpt, and hatha yoga. She is a Yoga Teacher Trainer and a Master Flexologist, training others to become yoga teachers and stretching experts. It is her passion to help each of her students improve the way they move and decrease their pain through effective physical training and stretching.

The relationship of movement to healing and wholeness has been the thread theme of my research throughout my adult life. My background includes working as a professional actor, professional dancer, and registered nurse.

I moved from Italy to LA in 1998 to start a family, and I have two daughters. My journey into Yoga started in 2003, when I was struggling with chronic back pain and looking for a solution. My practice quickly became part of my daily life.

I aspire to bring into the room a sense of lightness, calm, and peace in which a student might find a place where they can work with confidence and ease, to make their own physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual journey to wholeness.

I have been teaching Yoga for 15 years; I am E-RYT500 and YACEP certified, and I have accumulated more than 6,000 hours of teaching. I teach many different formats of classes: Hatha; Vinyasa flow; Yin Yoga; Yoga Nidra; chakra balancing with yoga for Trauma and Eating disorders; and 200-hour RYT Teacher Training.

CeCe

Yoga has changed my life and has been a part of me for the last five years. I have always been the high-impact workout type of gal up until my car accident six years ago where I injured my spine and developed a disk bulge at my L5S1. I found myself depressed, beaten mentally and emotionally due to my physical limitations. Until I found yoga. I have to be honest, I wasn’t all excited at first, I did not like it nor understand it but that was all I had besides my ordinary chiro-therapy. As I grew in my practice, it slowly helped me grow stronger, flexible, and fearless again on and off my mat.
Yoga to me is a lifestyle, helps me connect with my mind, my breath, and most importantly, is the time I connect spiritually regardless of beliefs. To me, it is the time I break free from everything to create space free from obstacles in my own body to live. 
After my husband and I came back from a yoga retreat in Bali, all I wanted was to deepen my practice to understand the philosophy. I completed my RYT 200 with Hot Yoga Haven. I will always and forever be a student of the practice. I am very humble, honor, and grateful for the wisdom, love and care my teachers and fellow Yogis have shared throughout this amazing journey with me. 
I have now been teaching at different venues including outdoors through the pandemic as well as at LA Fitness. In my classes, I like to combine the spiritual aspect, mental, as well as the physical aspect of course. I love creating fun sequences where you feel inspired to deepen your practice. My intention is to help others find a release so that they can move their bodies through life and hoping you step off your mat feeling refreshed and balanced. 
Namaste <3

After I had my first baby, a few decades ago, I was looking for something to keep my physical and emotional state in balance. I found my answer in yoga. Yoga helped me to keep my body and mind in balance and meet many wonderful people along the way.
After doing yoga recreationally for many years, the opportunity to become a yoga instructor fell on my lap and I took a plunge. I finished 200 hours of training and being sharing the yoga experience with the students.
