Sarah Pomaro found yoga just in time to save herself from her too-busy schedule: Working full-time, going to school for her MBA, and trying to keep up a home, she barely found time to take care of herself. Yoga helped her quiet the nonstop chatter that ran through her head and ultimately led her to a new life path. Sarah is a teacher who knows that each person comes to yoga for a different reason. When she took her first yoga class in 2002 (after much encouragement from her sister, who also teaches yoga), Sarah had no idea where it would lead her. The destination turned out to be a place on the mat that gave her time just for herself, time to nourish her adventurous spirit, and time to explore her strong body through pranayama and a hot, sweaty practice. Sarah is grateful for the lessons she's learned from Forrest Yoga: Strength and openness can live in harmony. Sarah was inspired by her first yoga teacher to question why she was professionally stuck, running short on time, and energetically zapped. The answers Sarah found in her practice led her to embark on a new chapter of her life: In 2005 she quit her job to focus on her master’s degree, and she attended a 200-hour teacher-training course with master yogini, Ana Forrest, who inspired her to go deeper still into her practice. Sarah now hopes to help inspire others to make time for themselves, to take care of themselves and to go deeper in their own practice. She is honored to support those who are learning to breathe, change and grow. Sarah grew up in the Chicagoland area, then ventured out to explore the Northwest in the early '90s. Love brought her back to her roots: She now lives in the far western suburbs with her dear husband and their two sons. Sarah not only teaches yoga but also supports clients with personal wellness coaching.
