Sara Harris Cotton

Sara Cotton has a deep love for yoga, with one of her earliest memories being practicing with her mother when she was only 4 years old. Since then, Sara has used Yoga to overcome many of life’s obstacles. She has combined her passion for yoga and love of the human spirit into a mindful, holistic practice. Her teaching style can best be described as “slow flow”, incorporating asana, breath work, and mindfulness into sequences designed to balance body, mind and spirit. Do not be deceived by the word “slow”; the pace and intensity of Sara’s classes work to bring the tapas, or fire, from within the soul to the exterior to be shared with the world around us. Her knowledge of anatomy and her open-minded approach to life allow her to assist a wide variety of students with specific complaints, aches and pains. Sara completed her 200 hour certification at the Living Yoga Program in Austin, TX and is also certified in pre- and post-natal yoga. Sara enjoys living, loving and sharing the joys of yoga with all ages.

With over 10 years of experience practicing yoga, Mae’s flows are instinctual, intentional, ubeat, and gratifying.
