It was love at first sight. Sadie was hooked the moment she found yoga and to this day she loves walking out of a class with a good yoga buzz. Her yoga journey started in 2008, but did not truly deepen until she went through some growing pains after graduating with a Master’s in Sociology. Sadie has always wanted to be a teacher and healer, but after finishing school I experienced a mini life-crisis. She spent 25 years in school, and realized academia was not her passion. "Day after day I would find myself unrolling my mat, lighting incense, and getting lost in yoga poses. During those times of relaxation and tuning into my inner wisdom or third eye ( started to unveil my true self. So in November 2013, I set off on a solo trip to Hawaii for a 200hr yoga teacher training. During this time I lived in a tent and met some truly amazing people, and realized that we all have similar obstacles to overcome in life. My goal in teaching yoga is to help people understand that all the answers lie within. We live in such a fast-paced world oftentimes we forget to take a deep breath and slow down. My SloFlow class is relaxing, challenging, and rewarding at the same time. You will leave this class blissed out and an overwhelming sense of calmness will radiate through you.” ~ Sadie
