Hi there, I'm Sara, originally from the Midwest and currently live and teach in Scottsdale, AZ. I create classes for the DVS in my home, under the supervision of my pup Tuffy. He remains unimpressed by my efforts.

Cecily and Yoga Detour is my most valued educational influence, which probably goes without saying. I also tip my hat to all of the incredible mentors in the Detour community for inspiring me to progress and continue to hone my craft. Dr. Andreo Spina of Functional Range Systems and Dr. Moses Bernard’s Ultimate Spine course have both been instrumental in shaping my methods as well. I enjoy learning just as much as I enjoy teaching!

My classes are generally described as subtly challenging with direct and concise communication. In my head, I’m always reminding myself to slow down and talk less to ensure that the receiver is encouraged to own their experience. Accompanied by doses of frivolous humor, my aim is to deliver sustainable movement practices that foster curiosity and discovery.

When I’m not teaching or taking yoga and movement classes, you can find me exploring the outdoors with my family.
