About Sarah

My name is Sarah Gill. I am a Yoga Instructor and a Yoga Therapist in training. I have been teaching yoga for 5 years and have been practicing for a little over 10 years. I enjoy teaching the tools of yoga in a way that is practical and tangible to all, making these practices accessible and part of everyday life. In my free time I like to be outside in nature or spending time with friends, family, and my dog potato. I am passionate about supporting my mental and physical health through the ancient practices of Yoga & Ayurveda and continue to learn and grow everyday.

Brandy loves the practice of yoga for its grounding and centering effects.  For the past 20 years, Brandy has been a student and teacher of yoga, extensively studying the Feminine path of Hatha, Bhakti, and Tantra Yoga.
