Sarah Marquez

Sarah took her first yoga class-a 90-minute Bikram session-in January 2009. "These people are CRAZY!" she thought through the sweltering hour and a half. She went back two days later, and became totally hooked. A few months later, lying in Savasana, Sarah experienced for the first time, with tears gently streaming from the corners of her eyes, the sweet and sacred thing called bliss.

Through the years, the practice of yoga has been immensely healing and empowering for her, allowing her to mend the wounds of a traumatic childhood, come to peace with her body, and enjoy an ever evolving strength and flexibility. Though she no longer practices Bikram (though she still LOVES the heat), Sarah now enjoys practicing and teaching both calm and rigorous vinyasa practices.

In 2011, Sarah received her 200-hour certification from Hot Yoga, Inc. in Covington, WA. She put off teaching for a while-to coordinate bone marrow donations and travel for 10 months throughout Mexico, Canada, and the Western United States. Since unexpectedly settling on the Oregon Coast in February 2014, Sarah has been teaching yoga to the coasties, enjoying the experience of small town living, and feeling ever grateful for the journey that was, is and has to be.
