|Sarah and Wren|
Tell us a little about yourself and your family- I have 6 month old, Wren Rebecca, born Feb 23rd 2011 at home weighing 11 lbs 7 oz! My partner, Jesse Hughson is a self-employed contractor, specializing in recycled wood carpentry. I have been a self employed yoga teacher and Reiki practitioner since 2005. I've lived many places, teaching, studying and just exploring myself and life, including New Mexico, where I did my Reiki master training, South Korea, where I taught Yoga and English to middle schoolers, and Vancouver, B.C./Oregon, where I did yoga training. I also lived for a few months on Koh Phangan island in Thailand studying Yin Yoga. Happy to be back in the ROC for a few years. This past year and a half being pregnant and becoming a mommy has literally transformed my life! I am happy to finally be rooted and starting a yoga/Reiki practice in Rochester, my hometown. I am excited to see what "blooms" from here with Inner Bloom Yoga and all that I have to offer as a mom teaching yoga!
Tell us about your hobbies and/or interests outside of teaching- Yoga is still one of my favorite past-times. I try to get to at least one class a week outside of teaching and it sometimes happens...sometimes doesn't! Otherwise, studying bodywork is exciting to me. I am going to be learning Reflexology, which for me, is my favorite form of bodywork to recieve. I absolutely LOVE my feet rubbed...better than a full body massage and so beneficial to my whole being! Can't wait to practice on others!! Also always been a crafter. I started my own craft biz in junior high and have dabbled in it ever since. I make jewelry out of gemstones, which I also love. I have also just started sewing patchwork squares from old fabric samples together and making pillowcases and a duvet cover out of them. We'll see what else comes of the patchwork work! Doing artistic things really feeds me and makes me feel whole, just like yoga does!
Name and Description of your class(es) that you teach-
Prenatal/Postnatal yoga - A gentle approach to classic Hatha yoga designed to aide in relieving tension and opening the body to prepare for childbirth and help it recover post-birth.
Parent/Baby yoga - a time to stretch your body and stimulate/bond with your baby. Really a great way to connect with your baby and open your body while doing it.
How did you become interested in teaching and what do you enjoy most about it? I took teacher training to delve deeper into my own practice and not actually to teach...but somehow, I started to teach and loved it so much that it overcame me...and it is what I do...it is my bliss! =)
Throughout your class session is there a specific topic or activity that you look forward to? (in other words, what's your favorite part of your class) I love seeing moms (and being a mom!) interacting with their own babies and hearing that sweet baby laugh as we do some interactive postures together. Baby laughs are the best part of the class!
What's your favorite product or product line at the Luvaboos store? We have used cloth diapers and love the Thirsties covers and prefolds. Right now, Wren's favorite new Luvaboos toy is Sophie the Giraffe. She already has 2 teeth and it's a great teether that also entertains her for quite a long time.
