About your facilitators:
Sarah is a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga teacher, teaching Ashtanga, Yin and Vinyasa styles of yoga. She has also begun teaching Pregnancy yoga after training with Dr Pooja Maddela in Auckland.
Sarah first discovered yoga with the Bikram hot method of yoga when she was 18, starting the practice mainly for the physical benefits it offered. Much later along the path she discovered Ashtanga yoga which was just as dynamic but was more of an internally heating practice & moving meditation. She began to fall in love with this yoga for the spiritual journey & its therapeutic benefits. She has practiced Ashtanga for the last 6 years, started teaching in 2014 and trained with Gregor Maehle & Monica Gauci from 8 Limbs Yoga.
Sarah also practices other forms of yoga such as Yin and Vinyasa, finding treasures in each method, and intuitively teaches based on the experience she has felt within herself. Sarah is dedicated to self-inquiry and personal/spiritual growth, always learning something new which she loves to share. She teaches with compassion, warmth and humour, adapting each class, no matter what the style, to the students who are present in the room.
Sarah is passionate about Ayurveda, Herbal remedies, Aromatherapy and anything which assists the body to heal itself
Sarah and her partner Alex moved from Auckland to Napier in January 2017 to pursue a more relaxed way to live. The opportunity to practice with her teacher, Peter Sanson was one of the big draw-cards for Sarah to move to Napier. Sarah continues to teach various styles of yoga at different locations in Napier on occasion. They now have a newborn baby boy and raise him here at the Wellness Sanctuary which is also their home.
She loves pouring her creative energy into, and holding space for the community at the Wellness Sanctuary. As well as teaching many of the yoga classes at the Wellness Sanctuary, Sarah organizes workshops & events, facilitating Ecstatic Dance and offering Reiki treatments.
Alex Feasey is a massage therapist and has been interested in natural health and bodywork for many years. Struggling with headaches caused by neck tension throughout his life led him to the field of massage therapy. He studied and gained a Diploma in Therapeutic massage at Wellpark College of Natural Therapies in 2002. During this course he studied a range of therapies including Swedish massage, fascial release, neuromuscular techniques, acupressure and lymphatic drainage. Alex has an empathetic approach to massage whether the client wants a remedial treatment or relaxation session. He has also begun incorporating Polarity Energy healing work into his massage sessions.
He was manager of Harvest Wholefoods in Auckland from 2003-2016 where he gained a wide knowledge of organics and nutrition.
Alex lives and works with his partner, Sarah Beale.
While he is not in the studio, Alex spends time in writing, delving into photography and perfecting the art of coffee making.
