ABOUT

“Healing depends on experiential knowledge:

You can be fully in charge of your life only if you can acknowledge the reality of your body,

in all its visceral dimensions” 

-Bessel Van der Kolk, The Body Keeps the Score

At thirteen, Sarah Sumner was diagnosed with Scoliosis and prescribed Vicodin, swim team & yoga to treat her back pain. Her parents threw out the Vicodin, she didn't like being in a bathing suit at 6:30a, so off to a yoga class she went. 

 

She has practiced every day since. 

As a Backcare & Alignment specialist and Yoga Therapist Sarah offers tools to help people unite their body and mind together to regain agency in each moment.
