I’ve been having private Yoga sessions in Dru Yoga with Sarah to help my recovery from a spinal fusion operation in my neck. She tailors the session totally to my abilities rather than my disabilities and keeps me mindful of my core stability which has made me feel strong and empowered.

Every session is different and I feel like I have made great progress.I cannot recommend Sarah's classes highly enough - she has a lovely, calm, sensitive and intelligent manner...

Mindful and nourishing morning yoga in the sea breeze, warmed by the sun and led by the love Sarah! Such a nice way to ease into the day.
I’ve been taking part in Sarah’s online zoom classes since lockdown in March 2020, and they’ve been an absolute life saver! I’m attending twice weekly Karmi(Zoom) Yoga classes and I receive replays at no extra cost so if I miss a session I can catch-up when it's convenient. Sarah's calming yet invigorating Yoga sessions have been essential for my mental and my physical health during this time, helping me to pause, realign and re-ground.
Doing yoga online sounds counter-intuitive and yet it doesn’t feel that different to doing it face to face, as it’s live there’s a social element of a quick catch up with Sarah and other participants before and after class. I've found Zoom easy to use and I’d highly recommend Sarah's online sessions.

I have been practising yoga with Sarah of Karmiyoga since the beginning of 2019. I absolutely love her classes. they always bring me back into peace and alignment. Sarah is an intuitive teacher with a gentle down-to-earth and soothing approach. Every class matches the energy of the day, and of the group.
When Sarah moved her classes online during Lockdown due to Covid-19, I was sad and unsure if I would get the same amazing experience as in the studio setting. I am delighted to say that the unexpected has occurred! I feel extremely connected to the energy of the class, just as though we were in a studio, and Sarah always makes sure we are safe in our online practice. It has been lovely to have my weekly classes available from the comfort and safety of my own home. I highly recommend Sarah's Karmi(Zoom)Yoga classes.

I booked a Hen Do Yoga session with Sarah for a group of 11 women (with varying experiences levels). Sarah made the booking process effortless and explained the different options, making it straight-forward to request a personalised focus for our session. As a mixed group there was something for everyone, and the girls in the group who had absolutely no yoga experience were converts by the end of Sarah's lesson! We particularly enjoyed the partner poses and the final relaxation. It set the group up for a brilliant Hen Do and Sarah even included a thoughtful bag of goodies for the bride-to-be which was a lovely surprise. We highly recommend Sarah for your Hen Do Yoga session - our group had such a great time we didn't want to leave the studio at the end!

As part of our corporate away-day we wanted to offer our teams different events to support the day. We asked Sarah to host a fun, all-abilities morning Yoga class and Sarah really delivered against our brief - not least being creative with a hotel meeting room to turn it into a relaxing environment. We all came away from the session feeling relaxed, energised and ready to start the day!
Myself, and staff at Boots, really enjoyed Sarah’s lunchtime taster sessions as part of our health and wellness event. Now I’m personally inspired to try some of the simple Yoga and Relaxation practices at home!

Sarah's classes are extremely accessible (I was a complete beginner when I joined two years ago) and she is very attentive and skilful at helping people learn and practice yoga in a very relaxed environment. Her love of yoga is genuine and infectious, and she is effective in enabling others to not only improve their skill but to deepen their understanding and incorporate yoga into their lives as a tool for relaxation and balance.
I booked a yoga session with Sarah as part of a hen weekend I was organising in Brighton. The session was fantastic - great for all abilities and the perfect mix between active and relaxation. Sarah even brought chocolates to hand out after class as well as a lovely goodie bag for the bride. We all came away feeling relaxed, restored and ready for another night out! Sarah also made the practicalities very easy, sorting out the studio booking and responding quickly to all emails and queries which was particularly helpful as I'm based in New York. I would 100% recommend a yoga class with her either for a hen party or any other type of occasion.

Everyone really enjoyed the Corporate Yoga Taster session on the seafront. It was a great introduction to yoga, and a lovely start to the day. Post taster-session we now book Sarah on a weekly basis for Outdoor Yoga sessions on Hove Lawns and when it's raining Sarah hosts the sessions in a lovely Yoga studio.

We all really enjoyed the outdoor yoga session, it was a perfect way to end our hen weekend! We loved doing yoga by the sea in Lancing, and on such a lovely day! The session was well thought out and was great for all abilities, even a complete beginner. Sarah made organising the practicalities very easy, responded quickly to emails and was a pleasure to deal with.

There's no better way to start the day than yoga in the sunshine under Sarah's gentle guidance followed by a glorious dip in the sea... Tucked in behind the beach huts, warmed by the sun, cooled by the sea air, these sessions offer energising and calming stretching, it's blissful... The sea is beautiful on an overcast day and even if the temperature's a little lower you are soon glowing! Thank you Sarah.
Helen Archer, Hove
Outdoor yoga is a truly sensory experience, the warmth of the sunshine, the refreshing sea air and the strong, solid connection to the Earth makes me feel stable and grounded...the sound of the gulls and the waves bring inner joy - it's really magical!
Outdoor Yoga is a grounding experience, helping to connect you to the elements, and a great way to shift the focus.
I've been having Reiki sessions with Sarah and they've proved extremely beneficial for my health and wellbeing. Being new to this therapy I was a little sceptical at first, about how it would help with my emotional state, and various aches and pains relating to my condition. But after each session I've felt calmer, more relaxed and able to cope with the week ahead. Sarah is a sympathetic practitioner and I really enjoy our meetings. I'm keeping my symptoms of Parkinsons at bay and this has opened my mind to new routes of health and wellbeing. Thank you Sarah
Pauline, East Sussex
Thank you Sarah for a wonderful Saturday afternoon Yoga/Relaxation session. I especially loved chanting 'Om' at the end of class.
Thank you for such a fabulous Saturday afternoon class... you're a wonderful teacher Sarah with such a relaxing aura that helps me switch right off!"

Dru Yoga is perfect for anyone of any size or age and very beneficial for anyone with back issues and for depression too- but there is no doubt that it is also a powerful workout. I highly recommend Sarah.

Thank you for a lovely evening at the Upwardly Conscious Coaching Circle Sarah, I feel very focused and clear about my way forward -now it’s time for the action steps! It was really nice working in a small group – so much more powerful yet softly holding.
Georgina H, Hove
“Thank you Sarah for a wonderful outdoor yoga session on Hove seafront. We really enjoyed it, and we’ll be sure to recommend you to any fellow yoga lovers visiting the area... if we’re lucky enough to come back to Brighton we’ll be in touch to book a session again!”
I just wanted to say thank you so much for yesterday's Hen Do Yoga session - everyone really enjoyed it and it set us up for a fab weekend!
Hen Do Yoga June 2018
Thank you so much Sarah for the amazing 1:1 Yoga session today, I've been experiencing such an energy block recently and have been struggling to move forwards. Just one focused session with you has helped me envision my goals and feel physically able for the first time in ages! Not to mention spirtually soothed:) Thanks again.
I've been having 1:1 Yoga sessions with Sarah for several months, and will be continuing as the Yoga/Relaxation techniques are proving to be invaluable in helping to reduce my stress levels and manage my diabetes. Sarah makes something that looks quite difficult very easy and the plan she develops feels truly made for my body. Movement is easy under her direction and it flows really well. The benefits to my wellbeing are fantastic.
Joanna Gough, Hove
In the coaching sessions with Sarah I was able to pinpoint the issues that have been holding me back with promoting my work as an artist. Sarah helped me to see that I needed to allow time for myself to plan and give space around the creative process, and to allow it to fit in and around my domestic life as well, knowing that I can move forward and achieve results in bite-size pieces of time, and acknowledge what I do achieve. She is a great listener and offers a safe space to discuss personal and professional issues that might be impacting on someone moving forward with and recognising their goals. She feeds back on discussions at the end of each session, and even emailed notes to help keep me on track, which I found massively useful. I fully recommend Sarah as a Coach.
Kate S, 52, Artist, Hove
Life Coaching with Sarah allowed me to effectively and efficiently dedicate some time to setting short term goals, and then achieve these goals. Having recently graduated from university but still feeling unsure what to do with the next stage of my life, talking with Sarah about some of the ideas I've had in the back of my mind but have never voiced out loud before gave me great clarity. Sarah used specialist techniques to ensure I had achievable, focused targets. At the same time, I didn't feel pressured to demonstrate massive progress between each session, I felt relaxed and that I was in a stress-free environment whilst still being dynamic and progressive.
Thank you for such an inspiring session today, I really enjoyed the Everyday Yoga mini workshop, and now feel able to implement some of your useful tips and advice into my daily routine.
Sarah's after-school Yoga classes have been an invaluable way for the teachers to unwind at the end of a hectic school day, and it's been lovely to share a moment of peace and tranquility with colleagues who I generally only get to know amid the buzz of the school day. Those of us on the Yoga course have become much closer and I feel we have developed a shared perspective which is proving very beneficial for the teams in which we work. It's really fantastic to float out of school, feeling calm, focused and balanced, rather than taking the stress and baggage home with us.

Sarah is an inspired teacher who really knows her stuff. Her book, Everyday Yoga, The Essential Guide, is an invaluable resource for the busy person’s bookshelf, providing easy-to-follow yoga practices and relaxation techniques that the beginner to the more experienced yogi can dip into. Sarah makes yoga very accessible and in her book there’s something for everyone, at all ages and stages in life, from pregnancy yoga and kids yoga through to seniors. I especially like the short programs that can be incorporated into the day to enhance wellbeing.

Sarah is a very genuine, and authentic teacher, I thoroughly enjoyed her classes held on the sunny roof terrace in Morocco's Atlas Mountains on retreat.
I recently attended the yoga & walking retreat in Morocco's Atlas Mountain, led by Sarah. She is a fantastic and knowledgeable teacher, and offers lovely yoga classes, I'd definitely do another retreat with Sarah.
I love attending Sarah's yoga in the beautiful arched hall at Cornerstone... It's a brilliant way to start the week and to be kind to my body.
I really enjoy Sarah's yoga classes. She is a wonderful teacher. I always feel refreshed after the sessions and would highly recommend her for everyone:)
Sarah's candle-lit yoga classes are a moment of pure escapism in a hectic week. When I'm visiting Brighton I attend the classes and leave feeling revitalised for many weeks ahead, literally floating on Cloud 9!
Sarah is a great teacher and guide. She's clear in her instruction and inspiring in what she brings to workshops and classes. I always feel very warm, safe and nurtured in her company:)
I have attended many different yoga classes in Brighton but Sarah is my favourite teacher by far, her style is very mindful, and I feel respected, nurtured and truly amazing after the sessions. Her directions are very clear and to the point, and her voice is gentle and calm. I leave the class feeling rejuvenated; physically and mentally relaxed, and positive about my life! Thank you Sarah!
I regularly attend Sarah's weekly yoga classes and just recently I booked a one to one yoga session with Sarah. She put together an excellent back-care program for me, I'm practicing daily, and it's really helping me overcome my long-term back problems. Highly recommended! Thank you Sarah.

I felt wonderfully calm and rested after receiving beautiful healing energies in a session of Reiki with Sarah, it was the perfect way to ground and integrate new energies, thank you Sarah.
"A perfect mix of classic yoga stretches and energy work that reminded me of Chi Gung...Sarah's soft voice and clear directions make you feel safe and in good hands.... This is yoga as it's meant to be: relaxing, gentle, respecful of both body and soul, and the start of an incredible personal journey"
editor of Brighton Healthy Magazine, and former Evening Standard Journalist
Thanks for all the lovely relaxing sessions this year Sarah, they've really helped me cope with juggling a busy job and busy life
I was recently diagnosed with Parkinsons and a friend suggested I take up yoga. She recommended Sarah and I have found my sessions with her calming and her teaching very soothing. She is really helping to support me through a very difficult time. Thanks Sarah.
Pauline W, Brighton
"I've been practising yoga for over 10 years on and off but have struggled to find a class in Brighton that I really enjoy. Sarah's Cornerstone evening class has a logical, flowing sequence with a great mixture of movement and stillness, so it really relaxes both mind and body. I especially love the feeling the next morning - positive, light-hearted and mobile, no matter what is going on in my life."
Riikka, aged 35
HR Professional, Hove
When I had a severe mental breakdown a good friend suggested yoga, and although my first reaction was panic I overcame my initial anxiety and started attending Sarah’s classes at Cornerstone. Under her expert tutelage I feel no pressure - she makes everyone feel really welcome, and the whole experience so calming and relaxing I am now much, much better and her classes are a highlight to my week.
Sales Manager, Hove
“Sarah's classes are great; very motivating and well structured. They are perfect for beginners as well as those looking to develop their practice further. Her approach is professional, calm and warm and her classes are a really lovely experience, which I highly recommend.”
“Since attending Sarah's yoga classes I no longer suffer from back problems. Her great skill is in making the class seem easy, relaxing and enjoyable, but you achieve big results with seemingly little effort. This makes the class hugely accessible, from beginners to those with more experience. I recommend Sarah’s classes to anyone, to promote health or simply as a treat.”
“Sarah’s classes are a joy, they are replenishing on so many levels, bringing peace, serenity and great bendiness! I leave with a smile and the benefits last all week. Don’t miss it!”
“I started yoga sessions recently to help my body become more flexible and stronger, as I have always suffered from back and neck problems. After just a few months I feel that yoga is starting to help me with this. I am a complete beginner, but have been really well supported within the group and given very helpful direction from Sarah without the pressure to do postures I am not comfortable with. I have also not felt self conscious about the fact that I am much less flexible than a lot of the group. It has been a really enjoyable and worthwhile experience joining Sarah's yoga group.”
“Sarah's classes are my calm in a hectic week. She has seen me through a stressful period of work and before and after having my daughter. I had to take a break when I was pregnant though I continued practising on my own and could not have got through labour without my belly breathing! Thank you Sarah!'
“Sarah’s yoga class is a very calming influence and an aid to my wellbeing.”
