Sarah completed her 200 hour teacher training at the Byron yoga centre and has since added yin, kids & teens and pre natal yoga to her training.

To Sarah yoga is about connections, connections to community, to others, and to the self, she believes there is a yoga practice to suit everybody, you just have to find what suits your ‘body’ and the rest will follow.


Karen Grant

Teaching from the heart, Karen loves to combine creative sequencing, yogic philosophy and some humour into her classes. After all, yoga is fun too! Trained in the ISHTA lineage of yoga (Integrated Science of Hatha Tantra and Ayurveda), a class with Karen will leave you feeling peaceful, balanced, nourished and content regardless of how you arrived on the mat.

Karen found yoga in her early twenties (or maybe it was the other way around) after a childhood that had more downs than ups. However, since committing to teacher training, it has absolutely transformed her life, with the most valuable lesson being self-love. Karen acknowledges the amazing teachers who have helped her on her yoga journey and continues to learn every single day recognising that she is now an eternal student of yoga.
