staff highlight: Sara C (and happy bday)!

Today’s blog post is all about Sara… and today is actually her birthday too!!!  Happy Birthday Sara!!!  🙂
The Sara(h)s and Lisa run this place.  Honestly, I don’t know what I would without my work exchange crew.  You really don’t realize what goes into the daily operations of extendYoga until you are behind the desk and behind the scenes– just ask a Sara(h) or Lisa!
So what’s the deal with Sara? —there are currently 4 that work at the studio.  I often refer to them as the Sara(h)s: Sara C, Sarah E, Sarah S and another Sara C, and actually some times Sarah B during winter and summer breaks.  I don’t know how we landed so many Sara(h)s, but we sure are lucky to have them.
It’s all about Sara C today.  Check out this interview and make sure to give her a birthday hug, high five or smile, next time you see her greeting you at the desk or rolling her mat out in class.
  • Tell me a little bit about yourself (something we might not know). 
My husband Mike and I started practicing yoga together in 2011; we did the groupon circuit. We loved extendYoga so much that we stuck with it! I am a Professional School Counselor by day and a Hebrew tutor by night. I love to sing, but not in public!

  • What is your current favorite yoga pose and why? 
It’s hard to choose one yoga pose that I love most. I’d have to say wheel because it makes me feel strong and flexible at the same time.
  • What is your favorite part about working at extendYoga and about yoga in general?
My favorite part about working at extendYoga is the community that has come together around this special place. It’s a place where people become fast friends. My favorite part of yoga is learning to look inside myself and challenge my ideas of what I think I can and cannot do.

  • If you could only take one extendYoga class/teacher for the rest of your life– which one and why?
Nina all the time.  I love her calm voice and her acceptance of and appreciation for all of her students.
  • Other than yoga, what are your passions/favorites?
I love to run – it challenges me physically and mentally. I also love to sing and play piano, but don’t do either enough! I love to cook and bake, and am getting into trying new recipes.  ***join Sara & Juliet at extendYoga on 4/26: Flow for a Cause and raise funds for Sara’s 1/2 Marathon efforts and The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society***
