Sarah Patterson

YTT Instructor, Ayurvedic Health Couselor, Yoga Therapist, RYT500, E-RYT200
Sarah's love and enthusiasm for sharing the transformative practices of Yoga and Ayurveda stem from her own experience with illness. Though she first started practicing yoga in 2006, it wasn't until later when illness left her so weak she could barely walk for a minute without taking a break, that she really started progressing in her own practice. Daily Yoga and Ayurvedic practices allowed her to manage what was diagnosed as a chronic illness, normally managed with multiple medications and an array of side-effects, completely medication and side-effect free...and thus began her love affair with these intuitive sciences. Understanding the healing potential within Yoga and Ayurveda, she knew that she wanted to help others discover how life-changing these ancient healing practices can be, and has now dedicated herself to spreading their wisdom.
