@saraebeck (Sara Beck) is another awesome yogi who will lead a “hip opener” yoga class, “Hips, Heart & Honey @catskillmountainyogafestival July 18, 2020 (rain date 7/19/20) ! Sara is the director and founder of Catskills Yoga House in Chichester, NY, became a devoted yoga student over twenty years ago when it became clear that her body, after years as a competitive athlete, needed to be given a new kind of attention and care. Her subsequent formal and informal studies of various schools of yoga including Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Kundalini yoga as well as her practices of meditation and energy work have brought a level of spaciousness and ease to her life that she never thought possible. She is grateful for the teachings she has received from many master teachers who have deepened her understanding of alignment, mindfulness, intelligent sequencing and breath. A yoga instructor for ten years, Sara teaches in a vinyasa style that is rooted in the breath and choreographed with both physical and emotional alignment in mind. It is her desire to help students tune in to and honor the unique dialogue within their own bodies and minds and to discover the lightness and balance by which she herself was so transformed.
