Study and reading Students are required to read ‘Insight Yoga’ by Sarah Powers and Mindfulness by Mark Williams and Danny Penman assigned for this training before they arrive. Reading this book is an integral part of the training so please purchase this upon registration of the course so you have plenty of time to read this before the training begins.

Sarah has inspired students across the globe that it is possible under all circumstances to find their way to lead a more fulfilling life filled with compassion, ease and grace. As the Buddha said, “Knowing the mind, Shaping the mind and Freeing the mind” is the doorway to awakening to the root of happiness that we long for. Most of us will have experienced enough unhappiness and dissatisfaction with our lives that we look for inspiration to find the inner peace and confidence to allow us to live our lives as who we truly are, to our fullest potential, realising our hopes, dreams and aspirations.
Sarah Lo is a Senior Teacher Trainer with Yoga Alliance Professionals. She is also a Certified Integral Development Coach and member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
Sarah has been personally endorsed by Sarah Powers, Insight Yoga Institute (IYI) one of just a few teachers in the world to receive this honour. She is also an Assistant to Sarah Powers and dedicates her teachings and life’s transformation from her time and mentorship with Sarah and Ty Powers.
Sarah offers Life Coaching and Mentoring to Teachers needing support in development of themselves as professionals and to enable women in particular to find their ‘authentic voices’. She believes this essential support is pivotal in the growth and development of teachers who often find themselves isolated and lacking the confidence to move forward with their work and to share the knowledge they already have.
