Sarah Burgess is a dedicated yoga practitioner and a passionate, experienced and fully qualified yoga teacher based in London.
She also featured as Teacher of the Month in the August 2014 issue of Yoga Magazine.
Sarah has been practising yoga since 2001 and teaching since 2006. She qualified to teach initially in 2006 after a 500 hour yoga teacher training course, and has since completed a further teaching course in yin yoga and mindfulness meditation with Sarah Powers at the Kripalu Yoga Institute in America. In addition to this, Sarah is a Level 2 qualified Birthlight Pre-and Post-Natal Yoga teacher. More recently she has completed a YogaCampus training in Yoga, Mindfulness and Compassion for treating anxiety and depression.
Sarah teaches ashtanga yoga, hatha yoga, vinyasa yoga, yin yoga, complete beginners’ yoga courses, pregnancy yoga and postnatal yoga as well as mindfulness meditation, mainly at Yoga Creation near Canary Wharf and at other yoga centres and private gyms in London.
A full list of classes, upcoming courses and workshops is available here.
Sarah truly believes that everyone can benefit from yoga, whatever their background, age or current physical condition, and her approach to teaching is one of warmth, encouragement and care and is always tailored to an individual’s needs.
Having lived in London and worked in a busy office job in the publishing industry for many years before teaching, Sarah is very aware of the stresses and challenges of big city living, and knows how a regular yoga practice can be enormously helpful in dealing with these and can enable people to find more balance, space and calm in their bodies, minds and lives.

“The spring flowers, the autumn moon;
Summer breezes, winter snow.
If useless things do not clutter your mind,
You have the best days of your life.”
“Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured.”
