Sarah Beston is a yoga teacher, writer, and coach based in Los Angeles, California.
After years in the corporate realm as a managing editor and program director, Sarah decided to honor her passion and take the career leap into wellness as a yoga teacher, mentor, and coach. The transition has been life changing, and she hopes to inspire others to overcome self-imposed limitations, helping them to uncover their individual truths and become the best versions of themselves.
Sarah discovered yoga when she moved from Boston to L.A. more than 15 years ago. After years of competitive gymnastics and dance, yoga felt like a natural physical progression. What was revealed was a life-long journey into the realm of mind and spirit.
Like any great love, yoga challenges her. As a life-long student, yoga continues to be a medium for lessons about grace and freedom from self-doubt, judgment, insecurity, and fear. In her classes, Sarah promotes a welcoming and safe environment that realigns her students with the natural gifts already within them—vitality, strength, joy, and intuitive intelligence. She brings her love of dance and choreography to creative vinyasa flow sequences that, through refined attention to breath, physical strength, and mindful movement, connects her students with the expansive freedom and potential of the body-mind-spirit connection. She believes a consistent practice offers the practitioner a pathway back to his or her own divine, radiant nature.
Sarah received her yoga teacher training certification (Yoga Alliance RYT 200-hour) through Yoga Mittra, under the guidance of Shelley Williams, Genevieve Pujalet, and Suzy Nece. She is currently pursuing her RYT 500-hour through Laughing Lotus in New York City.
Sarah believes in a holistic approach to health and wellness. All aspects of our lives—relationships, career, spirituality, creativity, exercise, and nutrition—are interwoven and impact our sense of well-being.
At the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, she studied a variety of dietary theories and coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts, including Dr. Andrew Weil, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. David Katz, Dr. Walter Willett, Geneen Roth, and many other leaders in the field.
With extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health, Sarah collaborates with clients to create a personalized roadmap to health that suits their unique lifestyle and goals.
Sarah holds her Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in Spirituality and Mind Body Practice at Teacher's College, Columbia University. She is an instructor at Columbia Business School’s Venture for All program, where she teaches courses on spiritual entrepreneurship and venture creation.
As a facilitator for the non-profit, Embody Love Movement, Sarah shares workshops to empower girls and women to celebrate their inner beauty and contribute to a meaningful change in the world.
Most days you can find Sarah playing with her dog Sadie on the porch, being barefoot as much as possible, and daydreaming about her next international adventure.
