8:00 - 9:00 am with Sarah Marie

"Through facilitation I will share my love of the practice with you by inviting you to connect to your breath, focus your awareness on your movements and how you feel, and finally ask you to apply what you've learned, and how you feel, to your life off of the mat.

My studies in yoga began here in Des Moines, back in 2013 and really sparked my love for the practice. I have since studied in India, and Mexico and come to you offering traditional Hatha yoga, Yin yoga, traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa and The Rocket®️ sequences."

x Together we will gently build warmth, foster conscious breathing, move intuitively, increase our morning flexibility and compassionately awaken your morning body to elevate your mood and infuse good vibes into your day.
