Yoga Instructor and Thai therapist
Sarah Robinson~Sarahswati I am passionate about helping others connect more deeply to themselves through yoga and bodywork. I have been practicing yoga for 17 years and Thai massage for 6 years. I have studied many diﬀerent modalities of yoga, with an emphasis on Hatha yoga. I received my teachers training through the Sivananda Vedanta Center in northern California and I studied Thai massage at Spirit Winds School of Thai Massage in Northern California as well. Yoga and Thai massage complement each other perfectly and I am truly grateful for the opportunity to help my clients feel better in their body, mind and spirit.
I grew up in Southern California and have had the opportunity to live in many beautiful places, including Costa Rica. I very much enjoy adventure, travel and sharing my practice of yoga and bodywork wherever I go.
