WHO WE ARE
My mission is to inspire others to self-love. To know that each person possesses greatness in their own skin, soul, and mind. My attitude within my teaching is to serve the students and allow them to find creativity through movement and making new shapes with their bodies. I desire to create uniqueness in my flows and to get my students to try things they didn’t know they could do. I am an E-YRT 200, CPT, and enjoy the edge of yoga meeting plyometric power movements. I have specialized in yin and restorative yoga as well, completing a balanced approach to grounding and intensity. When I am not at the studio, or the gym, I enjoy photography, cooking, and reading.
After more than a decade of consistent yoga practice I decided I wanted to share my knowledge and passion for this practice with others. Yoga has provided an outlet that allows me to shed what I don’t need and make space for what I do need. My intention for my classes is to guide students to this sense of balance so they can bring it into their everyday lives. I became certified in December 2016 with CorePower Yoga’s 200 hour training program. I hope to bring a lightness and playfulness to my classes so that my students walk away feeling they have more of what they need and less of what they don’t.
I quickly fell in love with the practice as a way to get fit and healthier and discovered how important yoga was for my physical, emotional, and mental health. As an avid runner, I've found yoga an incredible compliment be able to perform at my best. Through yoga, I have reinvented myself, and have a new life mission supporting others through all of life’s joys, difficulties, and inevitable struggles. Recently, I began the transition to a plant based lifestyle. I'm fascinated with nutrition and its relationship with mental as well as physical health. Running began my journey toward a healthier lifestyle, but yoga and nutrition has allowed me to dig deeper in finding my healthiest and happiest self. I completed my RYT200 training at Asana Studio in Arvada, Colorado.
My name is Sarah Edmonds and I am thrilled to be part of this amazing community here at Better Buzz. I am a Colorado native and I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else! I live in Highlands Ranch with my wonderful husband, Nigel, and our 4 kids. I LOVE being in the mountains, especially hiking and skiing - I have found much solace there over the years. I also enjoy going to concerts, traveling, photography and, of course, YOGA!!! I am honored to be on this journey with all of you! Namaste! I completed my RYT200 training at Lifetime Fitness in Centennial, Colorado.
Self-discovery is a beautiful thing, and just one of many facets of yoga that keeps me coming back. I first came to yoga simply as a means to help ease some of the strain I was experiencing in my knees, but found the practice has shaped and changed my life in ways innumerable. It has given my body more strength and endurance, it has challenged me to deeply explore my mental landscape. I believe yoga presents infinite potential for physical, mental, and spiritual growth, and am grateful to be part of this community. I love guiding students through a physically challenging and mentally engaging practice and love all that I learn from and with everyone in our local yoga tribe. Let’s root for each other, and watch each other grow. I completed my RYT200 at LifeTime Fitness in Centennial, Colorado.
Yoga came into my life when years of running and high-intensity no-pain, no-gain workouts started to take their toll. I wanted to find something that would still push me physically but bring me a sense of peace and clarity. I teach empowering classes that emphasize strength training and a fusion of the HIIT exercises I love along with the flow of Power Vinyasa. When I'm not getting my Namaste on, I enjoy spending time with my family and my fur children, hiking and getting out in the mountains, reading, and eating anything I can get my hands on. I'm so blessed and excited to be a part of the dynamic team at Better Buzz and can't wait to slay with you on and off the mat! I completed my RYT200 training at the River in Denver, Colorado.
I've been practicing yoga for almost 15 years. It is woven into the fabric of my being and my passion is bringing the peace, joy, and strength of yoga into my community. I enjoy teaching challenging classes, encouraging students to explore their physical and spiritual edge. My classes offer students the opportunity to take risks and work hard to grow in their practice. I also enjoy having fun and designing soulful classes to some of my favorite artists. It is my sincere hope that taking risks and having fun on the mat translates into students finding their purpose and the strength to follow it off the mat. I am so excited to join the BetterBuzz community and be part of a badass team building strength and love in the Sunnyside neighborhood.
Yoga is a journey. It breaks society’s conditioned norms of checking things off a list, of striving for perfection, of always thinking what’s next. Yoga is presence within the moment and excitement for personal growth. I first discovered yoga as a form of fitness in 2012, but quickly realized it wasn’t just my biceps that were growing - it was my soul. I became addicted to the practice, craving space within my own authentic self for the first time. When I’m on my mat, I get lost in the moment and in growing my light. I hope to provide my students with a space where they can be vulnerable, leave the outside world behind, and look within themselves to find the power of their own inner light. When we all shine we make the world a brighter place. I completed my RYT200 at CorePower Yoga in 2015.
I am a creative. Raised in a family where the hand was an essential tool, my earliest expressions came in the form of the piano, cooking, photography, sculpture, woodwork, and yoga! I received a double Arts & Sciences BA from Seattle University and immediately transitioned into continuing my education. I have completed thorough trainings in Yin, Vinyasa, Pre-natal, and Bilingual yoga, as well as training in hands-on assists, and an additional 100 hours of formal mentorship in Bali, Indonesia. I believe in equal pillars of knowledge and experience. I routinely use my instincts to support my student’s needs on a day-to-day basis, rarely repeating the same class twice. Thoughtful and empowering sequences will deliver you to numerous energetic peaks; paired with her supportive assists and fondness of storytelling, you’ll leave class feeling fresh, light, and connected. I completed my RYT200 at Kindness Yoga in Denver, Colorado.
I spent years living as a wilderness guide, a Peace Corps volunteer, and a math teacher before encountering yoga as a means to integrate life lessons and heal from the trauma of the past. One of the fundamental purposes of yoga, for me, is to create a transitional environment in which overworked and overstimulated people can move from a place of mental agitation to a place of mental stillness. The bridge from movement to stillness comes in the form of challenging movements, purposeful breathing, and intense mental concentration on both these areas. As a result, my classes are very athletic, as mental and physical fatigue helps still the mind. That being said, every class should be a combination of focused intention and fun. In my class you will laugh, meet your neighbors, and perhaps even… hold hands (briefly!). I tend to incorporate powerful music to support the energy in class. Any particular class of may feature hip hop, rock, dub step, or sitar. Come with an open mind and a sense of adventure and we will breathe, flow, and grow together.
Life has a beautiful yet unpredictable cadence. In the past few years, I've lived in different countries, moved multiple times, gotten married, lost and found important people and places. What yoga has helped to define for me is that no matter what is going on in my world, I know that if I can make it to my mat, I have the opportunity to reconnect, reset and find my center. This practice is about connection and I am grateful for the daily reminder of the journey we are all on. I love hearing the collective sigh of letting go, creating union with breath and the simple act of being in a space with others, wherever we are on our path. I find it to be a lovely metaphor for life and I'm honored to have the opportunity to help find your practice whenever we may meet! I completed my RYT200 training at Spirit Yoga Studios in San Diego.
Growing up in Aurora, CO, I was first introduced to yoga as an injury prevention method for lacrosse. A couple years later, while attending engineering school, I stumbled upon a hot yoga studio in Boulder, CO and was immediately hooked. The physical practice of the asanas combined with the mental fortitude required to keep present during the moments of discomfort in the heat lead to wonderful changes immediately. The pain from body damage caused from sports and snowboarding began to dissipate through the poses and the moving meditation of the practice started to bring fearful, held up thoughts outward to be faced. After several years of regular practice, in 2016, I enrolled in a 200 hour teacher training hoping to share this magical practice and guide students towards the physical and mental growth instructors in years past have gifted me. In my class, you can expect an emphasis on breath flowing through fun sequences, while jamming out to some great music!
I began my yoga practice 12 years ago; peaking at 6 feet in height by age 14, my chiropractor recommended yoga to keep the muscles surrounding my spine strong, and to prevent scoliosis. By age 18, I had avoided any spinal issues that were anticipated, and developed a deep passion for yoga. In 2009, I walked into a Kundalini yoga studio in FL. From the very first class I this was the answer - this was the path for me. I spent 9 months in FL apprenticing under kundalini teacher, Nirinjan Kaur Khalsa. I completed my RYT 200HR Ashtanga / Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training at The Center of Bliss in Greenville, SC & Strala Yoga training with Tara Stiles and Mike Taylor. A yoga student first and always, I continue to attend trainings, workshops, retreats and intensives. I practice & teach the philosophy that yoga should feel good & unique to the individual. My purpose is to connect, inspire, move, heal & grow.
After spending the last decade cultivating a regular yoga practice, I am passionate about sharing my experience and supporting others on their journey. I hope to become a catalyst for change by creating a safe and loving space for personal exploration. I believe we are a physical embodiment of the sacred source, and our purpose is to not only witness, but to participate in the inexhaustible celebration we call life. By utilizing the power of breath control, I strive to help others reach new levels of awareness and appreciation for the magic and mystery of our world, both internally and externally.
