I'm so happy your here.
Thank you for popping by. My name is Sara Spitzer and I am an inspired Yoga Teacher (inspired by the teachings of Yoga).
I remember my first Yoga class. A friend asked me to join her for a Yoga class at North Sydney Yoga. We changed out of our corporate wear and wandered down after work and I did my first Yoga class, Ashtanga none the less! A pretty vigorous physical class. Fast forward an hour and a half, when I walked out of that studio, wow, I felt so different. There was a shift in me, I was calm, breathing steady, I tell all my friends "I felt like a shirt that had all the creases ironed out".
That was about 20 years ago. Since then I’ve enjoyed Ashtanga Yoga, Bikram Yoga, Power Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga, and finally settled in my beloved Hatha Yoga. How could I possibly resist it with all its philosophy and helpful tips for living in the world!
After many fun but stressful years in the corporate world, I decided to embark upon a 1 year, 350 hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Diploma in 2010 at Qi Yoga. It was a wonderful challenging year, full of aha moments, of learning new things, learning a new language (Sanskrit), facing many challenges, and in December that year I graduated. Woohooo!
I love, teach and practice Yoga because I believe in it. It really does relieve tension, it lets the good energy circulate, it calms the breath, which enables us slow down, be more focused and centred. Harmony!
Here are some of the things that you can expect in one of my classes:
~ Movement (Asana),
~ breath awareness (pranayama)
~ meditation, learning to sit and connect
~ mantra, its important what words we constantly repeat to ourselves
~ laughter, smiles and story... and we will create community one breath at a time.
Happy Holy Oms.
