Sally has been teaching since 2005, when she was certified by the Living Yoga Program in Austin, TX. Originally drawn to yoga for its centering and heart-opening benefits, she came to rely on the practice for relief from chronic migraines and now savors yoga as a way of living and experiencing the world. Inviting to all levels, her classes are challenging yet not intimidating. She draws inspiration from her love of music, often times striking a chord with her students through the joy of song and movement (see http://sallyoga.posterous.com for class playlists!). Sally spends her days at the international design and innovation consultancy IDEO, loves to play outdoors, walks really fast, and plays the drums. On and off the mat, she strives to take each moment with awareness and a sense of humor.
"While San Francisco is full of yoga studios, it is difficult to find a studio that is a good fit. I've seen many yoga studios, including one with a version of Richard Simmons with a headset in 120F heat. Over the last 10 years, I have witnessed Yoga change from foreign and estranged (my first introduction to yoga was a class in "Stretching 101") to something emerging from off the fringe. Once in a while I hear folks saying, "Oh I should get back into yoga again." Yoga is becoming the thing more and more body’s need. Over the last two years, Yoga Mayu has become my home studio. It leans slightly towards the traditional side of yoga (mix of Raja, Flow, Ashtanga, Hatha) and I like this because you are less likely to injure yourself that way, and you leave feeling physically challenged and refreshed. The ambiance is calm, welcoming and generally allowing you to learn / teach yourself, without worrying about others around you. People are friendly. It's a great place to learn and recollect yourself before heading out into the big, bad world again"
