Saturday, February 22, 2014 – Rock Your Chakra Khan Workshop: 7th (Crown) Chakra
I’m condensing my Saturday classes to one workshop a month at my place! We’ll be rocking through the chakras – doing my usual “Slow Flow” with a focus each month on a different chakra. Next up, the 7th (Crown) Chakra. This chakra is responsible for your universal connectivity. No biggie, right? Join me –
By the way, per the usual, this will be a donation class. Pay whatever works for you!

78704 YOGA CLASS SCHEDULE
– taught by Sarah Reed, RYT 200 hours –
TUESDAY: 12 – 1:15pm (at my home studio, contact me for details)
FRIDAY: 12-1:15pm (at my home studio, contact me for details)
I call my classes “Slow Flow”. We move from one posture fluidly to the next, with music and cued breathing, allowing plenty of time for instruction and modification (up or down, depending on your level). I’m a big fan of stretching, so you’ll twist and move every which way to Sunday. Class ends with a nice juicy savasana. You’ll leave feeling amazing.
There is a donation box for students to give at their discretion.
Suggested donation is $10 payable by cash, check (made out to Sarah Reed), or credit card.
(Although, don’t let that stop you from coming. If you need yoga, then you get yoga! I am also open to trades. Please just come to class and we’ll figure something out.)
In addition, I can bring the class to you! I work with several businesses and groups in town to provide yoga before work and during the lunch hour. If there is enough demand, additional classes will be added to the schedule. Private individual sessions are available immediately. Please contact me for more information or if you are interested in joining a class.

About the yoga: Taught by South Austin’s Sarah Reed, 78704 YOGA is a flow-based system of yoga that is good for all ages and body types. I have designed it to be a fun and healthy experience, incorporating breathwork and asana to challenge both beginners and more experienced yoga practitioners. Modifications are offered so that those new to yoga, people with injuries, and people of all body types can feel comfortable. Music and cued breathing help keep the pace consistent so that the practice becomes a moving meditation. True to my South Austin style, the environment is casual and laughter is encouraged, because – come on – “Happy Baby” pose (known around here as “No Photos Please” pose) is hilarious!
About Sarah: I started practicing yoga in 1997. I began with a Beginner’s Hatha Yoga series taught by Becky Jordan at the Yoga Institute in Houston, and, from there, moved to an Anusara practice at the Heart of Texas Yoga studio when Becky and I both, coincidentally, ended up living in the tiny town of Wimberley, in the Hill Country of Central Texas. Taking time off here and there, I always returned to yoga as my preferred method of exercise and stress management. Along the way, I dabbled in other styles of yoga: Bikram, Iyengar, Kundalini, and Viniyoga. In 2009, I began practicing Asthanga and Hatha Flow, studying with Annick Sebanne at Austin’s Yoga Yoga. After dedicated Ashtanga study for 3 years, I am once again branching out and studying a variety of styles. My 78704 YOGA classes reflect what I find to be the most useful elements from each school of yoga.
I completed the 200 hour Yoga Yoga Hatha Flow teacher training program in June of 2012. My teachers included Rachel Hector, Ana Pilar Cruz, Mehtab Benton (Yoga Philosophy and Mantra), Eduardo Wayo Menachem Ramirez (Pranayama), Mark Uridel (Yoga Anatomy), and Libby Dembe (Yoga Philosophy). I’ve also trained in LifeForce Yoga with Amy Weintraub.
I thought I *might* like teaching yoga, but I am thrilled to have found that I LOVE it!
“THIS is how yoga is supposed to be — not the so-solemn-and-serious type of yoga, not the athletic-and-horribly-competitive yoga, where everyone is so intense on the pose that I hear gasping breath all over the room. Sarah’s yoga is (no pun intended) a breath of fresh air. She’s human, she’s welcoming, she’s funny, you can ask questions, and she knows what yoga is supposed to be. It’s supposed to be a focus on the breath, with poses you can adjust depending on your ability or desire, and she totally provides that, plus an environment where, regardless of your level, you can get reconnected to what yoga is. After so many classes at my gym and around town, with aggressive poses (really? headstand in a beginner class?) and people holding their breath, and the instructor allowing that to occur, Sarah’s class was one I will return to again and again.

“Sarah, you are awesome. I always get new ideas from your classes, inspiration from your home, and great tunes/vibes from you! Thanks so much for sharing your beauty and great ideas with us. The world needs more Sarah!”
– Yvette Marie L.
“Your approach was perfect… so body-aware, intentional, gentle yet DEEP. Very effective — I have not felt that good in my body for a very, very long time. I highly recommend Sarah’s classes. She is a true yogini-cowgirl, ready to lasso you into a better spot with precision and care.”
– Jessica W.
“Sarah is wonderful! Friendly and approachable, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She gracefully offers modifications up or down to your ability level, and her classes flow so smoothly. (Great music, too.) I walked out of my first class feeling like I was walking on air.”
– Alex M.
“Your class rocks… it is so nice to experience yoga in such an intimate setting!”
– Tillie P.
“I look forward to Sarah’s class each week. She is very kind, patient, and knowledgeable. She recommends modifications to help me maximize my yoga experience despite my restrictions. She has a laid back approach that I really appreciate.”
– Michelle K.
“I can’t thank you enough for this class. Today really pushed all the right buttons and released those badly-needed endorphins. Very encouraging. ”
– Kathleen M.
“I was charmed and amazed at how [Sarah] tailored it to my aged and creaking body without a hint of condescension, what fun it was, and how much better I felt. ”
– Dale R.
“Sarah is relaxed and funny, and very approachable. Her classes are small, allowing for a more personal yoga experience and the opportunity to ask questions while you are actually trying to do the poses! Very helpful.”
– Susan G.
“I have always wanted to do yoga, but was always scared away because I have it in my head that I am a klutz. Last week, I went to Sarah’s yoga class and was blown away, first by how much I needed it (I had no idea I was so tight and how little I actually breathed!!!), and then by how safe and at ease I was during the whole class, especially when I realized that I was next to a seasoned yoga student who made it all look so easy. Sarah made it so safe and comfortable and easy to BE at the level I was. I never felt like a klutz because I couldn’t do certain poses like the others in the class. I am totally hooked and see already what a difference Sarah’s ‘Yoga for Everyone’ is making for me.”
– Mike R.
“You completely rocked the house. You are down to earth with confident verbal delivery, lots of practical info, options, and some totally kick-asana tunes. Can’t go wrong with that!!!”
– Yvette Marie L.
“Sarah, you are such a fun teacher! Everyone, no matter what their style or level of experience, can feel completely comfortable learning from you. I love how relaxed your classes are and how laughter is always encouraged. Thanks for a great yoga experience!”
– Miranda G.

– Virginia F.
“You are hilarious and kind – just like your web site says!”
– Rachel H.

– Lisa R.
