Sarah Burris

Student / Teacher

Sarah was introduced to yoga in her hometown of Vancouver in 2009. She left that first class soaked and exhausted, but feeling inspired. As a former competitive athlete and overall movement enthusiast, Sarah practices yoga to explore new ways to move and strengthen her body, but also to relax and slow down. What she enjoys most about this journey is connecting with others in a shared space and being part of a community that believes in safe exploration of movement, breath, and self. Sarah completed her Level 1 Modo training in early 2016 and her Modo Flow training in November 2017. In her teaching, she emphasizes curiosity over mastery and encourages students to meet themselves exactly where they are, in order to explore what’s possible in the moment. Sarah has great respect for movement as a path toward deep self reflection and acceptance and believes that yoga can be both a nourishing and invigorating practice.
