All You Need to Do is Breathe

  What is Pranayama and what does it have to do with yoga? If you have heard of yoga, chances are you have heard something along the lines of “breath and movement” used to describe it. Fancy yoga words and complex descriptions add to the confusion of what is a very basic principle. We breathe…

Yoga Classes Begin November

  Hey You… I’ve missed you! Yoga with Sarah yoga classes will begin again in Los Barriles November 2019. It’s amazing how fast summer is flying by. I can’t wait to see all of my favorite yogi hooligans in beautiful Baja this fall.   It’s ALL yoga If you haven’t found your way to your…
