Sara-mae Martin

Yoga Therapist, Yoga Therapy Trainer

Sara-mae is the second lead teacher. She will be with us at key points throughout each module as well as the final day.

 

In 2002, I was leading a rapid lifestyle with a career in the legal sector, feeling burnout hit and I fell into the arms of yoga. It was from here that I unfolded the personal benefits of yoga as a way to balance a working life, personal mental and physical health. Yoga fast became my passion and ever since then, I fully absorbed myself into learning and understanding yoga as a way of life.

 

I carried out my first Certified Yoga teacher training in 2010. It was then that I knew that I wanted to take my teaching further and help others through specialised yoga therapy.

 

I attended the BWY Yoga Therapy Foundation Course delivered by Nikki Jackson in 2018. It was during this course that I truly discovered the depths of how the application of yoga therapy can bring healing, alleviate physical and mental health conditions with the view of promoting self-care and encouraging overall well-being.

 

I went on to train as an accredited yoga therapist and continued to carry out additional specialist trainings in yoga therapy for trauma in mental health. I work with children from the age of 7 years old, teens and adults who have experienced traumatic events including grief and loss. I currently work alongside a team of psychologists and with various trauma and wellbeing centres.
