About Island Flow Yoga
Aloha! My name is Sarah, and I've created Island Flow Yoga in order to share my love of yoga and fitness with you!
I've always enjoyed an early morning yoga practice, even though I used to think I wasn't a morning person. During college, I would shuffle through the Minnesota snow at 6AM to make it to my college rec center "Sunrise Yoga" classes that were held inside, of course, in a cold gym... and I LOVED it. On the days I practiced yoga or another workout first thing in the morning I felt so much more motivated and focused for my day.
Now imagine waking up your body and mind while witnessing the magic of Hawaii morning unfold. Watch the sun crest over the horizon while it paints the skies with colors. Breathe in the sweet ocean air, and listen to the rhythm of the waves. Watch the 'iwa birds glide through the sky, and see all the pups stoked to frolic in the sand during their morning stroll. Every class is a unique and beautiful adventure. During class, I offer modifications and assists to help you feel comfortable and confident in your practice.
I'm so honored to share this practice with visitors from around the world that decide to make my class a part of their Hawaii experience. I hope you will try it for yourself.
Take a look at my class schedule, and please let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to sharing this memorable experience with you.
Aloha and Namaste,
More About Me
I have been teaching yoga and coaching fitness & sport since 2010. I grew up in Wisconsin, and I first began my yoga journey during a high school gym class, where the teacher popped in a VHS tape of a yoga class. I remember loving it and definitely giggling during savasana. I participated in many different sports, but my favorites were Track and Field, Gymnastics, and Swimming. During my college years, studying Marketing and Coaching at University of Minnesota Twin Cities, I began regularly practicing yoga or attending other fitness classes in the early morning because I loved how much better I felt on the days I started first thing with a movement practice.
I began teaching yoga in 2011. During my time in Minnesota, I also taught Yoga Sculpt and Spin classes. I coached four years of Track and Field--pole vault and high jump--and taught Barre and BUTI Yoga classes. During the summers, I taught Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga classes on the lakes!
In 2013, I moved to San Francisco to work in the tech industry, but quickly realized that teaching was what I wanted to pursue as my career. I quit my job and went full-time fitness coach and yoga teacher. During my time in San Francisco, I taught Yoga, CrossFit, Spin, TRX, Barre, and Kettlebell classes. I led several Yoga Teacher Trainings.
In 2016, I moved to Oahu, Hawaii and currently teach Sunrise Yoga and train private clients both online and in-person. When I am not teaching or practicing yoga, you can find me cooking at The Beet Box Cafe or playing with my dogs at the beach.
