ABOUT SARAH

Sarah found yoga while training for her first marathon. She looked to yoga as just another part of her training regimen and after her first class, she realized that it would become much more. Yoga changed the way Sarah breathed, looked at herself as well as the world. After diving into the practice, she discovered she wanted to share this gift with others.

A native New Yorker, Sarah received her RYT 200 certification from Laughing Lotus Yoga Center under the tutelage of Mary Dana Abbot. In 2021, Sarah completed her Katonah Yoga ® certification. Sarah weaves both Katonah Yoga ® material along with Vinyasa into her classes.

When Sarah is not on the mat, you can find her jogging around the New Hampshire/Maine Seacoast, baking pies or on the beach with her husband Steve, son Axel and daughter Lucy.

"I have been practicing with Sarah since she and her family moved to the Seacoast. I realized early on that Sarah had a passion for “teaching” yoga and pushing her students to do poses they didn’t realize they were capable of. When other teachers guide you through the same flow, Sarah shows that there is more to a pose than just going through the motions. When the pandemic hit and studios were closed or classes were cut back, I missed being able to practice with Sarah. Making the decision to schedule private classes has been the best decision, and my practice has evolved into something that I wanted it to be - not just the same old Vinyasa flow classes we all have been to. If you want to take your practice to a higher level I highly recommend giving Sarah a call."

"I am delighted to review a yoga series I was fortunate to participate in led by Sarah Krzyzanowski. Sarah is a kind, thoughtful, caring individual and a gifted yoga teacher. Since a bike accident and broken pelvis a few years ago I have had difficulty with tight hips. When I heard that Sarah was teaching a series on hip openers I knew this was for me. Not that I like those poses but trusted that Sarah would guide me in these very difficult (for me) poses. The first session I could not even attempt gomukhasana, fire log pose, or variations on a pigeon pose. Sarah modified and gave me many suggestions for adjustments that began my journey to more flexible hips. I now have a daily practice of hip poses that have given me physical relief as well as much happiness that comes from seeing improvement. What is truly amazing, Sarah did all of this on Zoom. If you want to begin a practice, fine tune your current practice and treat yourself to an awe-inspiring yoga experience contact Sarah."

TEACHING STYLES

KATONAH YOGA®

Katonah Yoga® is a syncretic Hatha yoga practice developed by Nevine Michaan over 40 years. She and her teachers incoporate classical Hatha yoga with Taoist theory, geometry, magic, mythology, metaphor, and imagination — in a practical framework designed to potentiate personal and communal well-being. Framing the practice, maps of time and personal space are defined and refined. Themes using asana as origami, manipulating form for function, and developing a sense of personal measure are incorporated in Katonah Yoga ® practices.

Katonah Yoga ® is organized around three principles of esoteric dialogue: all polarities are mediated by trinity; the universe has pattern, pattern belies intelligence; by virtue of repetition there is potential for insight. Disciplined techniques are organized for revelation through revolutions.

CHAIR YOGA

Chair yoga is for everyone. It can be used as a physically demanding practice to access a deeper understanding of the pose. It can be restorative and serve to give us leverage to be held. It can also be used to turn ourselves upside down and change our perspective. Chair classes are inspired heavily by Katonah Yoga®

VINYASA

Vinyasa yoga, also known as Flow or Vinyasa Flow, is focuses on a linking one breath per movement so that there is a tempo as we travel through class. Classes incorporate sun salutations, inversions, twists, folds and more.. In my Vinyasa/Flow classes, Katonah Yoga ® elements will be introduced and explored.
