Sara Rose Page is an Experienced 500 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance (E-RYT) and owner of Yoga Sanctuary since 1999.
Sara's background in yoga spans over 2 decades of learning and teaching. For almost a decade Sara was a certifed Anusara yoga teacher where she learned therapeutic alignment principles and the art of teaching with a theme, core practices which she still uses today. Sara offers precise, clear and healing alingment instruction infused with profound philosophical teachings that inspire us to live everyday with courage, curiosity and compassion. She has studied extensively with world-renowned philosophy expert Dr. Douglas Brooks in Rajanaka Tantra and the Esoteric Traditions of the Goddess. Sara came to yoga in her teenage years in search of healing and her path has been as challenging as it has been endlessly rewarding. It is Sara's intention to support every student to begin where they are, in body and heart, to find self-acceptance and discover their capacity for unique and authentic self- expression.

Now, fifteen years later, when I teach yoga, I return again and again to this first experience—the curiosity
and fear, the desire and doubt and what took hold so vividly in my imagination. Here was a field of study
that engaged all parts of being human: a warm and open invitation into a world of delightful and
challenging physical possibilities that I had never explored, a rich philosophical tradition that was as
intellectually stimulating as it was complex and a place of creative expression and innovation within an
Here was a place to breathe.
How or why you find yourself on the park bench can stay a mystery.
On any day, yoga welcomes you just as you are.
