After some time spent as a “yoga tourist”, teaching hundreds of classes in several different types of yoga in different studios across the world, Sophie found herself drawn to the more dynamic style of yoga.

Sarah K-Hirji

Sarah-248 Summer yoga festivalA popular teacher on the Sweat timetable, Sarah’s been teaching yoga for a number of years for Sweat and other studios. A US National living in Milton Keynes, Sarah was first attracted to yoga as she strived for a healthier lifestyle. It didn’t take long until she was hooked and she completed her yoga teacher training in Florida in 2012. She later married, relocated to the UK and had a baby girl. Flow yoga is Sarah’s passion but she also has a much softer side that she lets shine during her more nurturing classes. Whatever the class, Sarah doesn’t take the yoga too seriously, so you can be assured of a fun approach.
